Proper aftercare is the secret to maintaining the brilliance of your Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) results. By diligently following our care guide, you ensure that your SMP retains its vibrancy, providing you with the best and longest-lasting results. Consistency in aftercare routines becomes the cornerstone for a continued sense of confidence and satisfaction with your SMP investment.

Immediate Care

Always remember, your Scalp Micropigmentation is a healing canvas! Maintain cleanliness, but withhold washing for the initial four days to minimize infection risks. Steer clear of saunas, steam rooms, sunbeds, and chlorine for the next 30 days. If you’re accustomed to shaving your head, kindly refrain from doing so in the initial 10 days.

Resist the urge to wash your head! Despite the temptation, your delicate scalp won’t appreciate it. If needed, gently pat your scalp with a damp cloth, but avoid saturating it with water. Minimize touching the scalp to lower infection risks.

Shield your scalp from the sun during this phase; opt for a loose, comfortable head covering or hat if venturing outdoors. Sun exposure, particularly in the initial 5 days, may prematurely fade the pigment. And as a rule throughout the healing journey, ensure your pillowcases remain consistently clean.

Continue steering clear of sunlight and resist the temptation to touch the healing scalp. Additionally, abstain from vigorous scrubbing and shampooing to prevent reopening the delicate wounds in the process of healing.

In the initial 7 days, it’s advisable to forgo intense exercises causing excessive sweating, as sweat can disrupt the healing process. Stay well-hydrated by drinking ample water, and adhere to any prescribed medication routinely during this crucial period.

At this juncture, your healing scalp is on track! If you plan to shave, opt for an electric foil razor, ensuring the scalp is wet. Choose a sulphate-free shampoo and avoid products with strong fragrances.

It’s common to experience itchiness now—resist the urge to scratch and disrupt the healing scabs. Consider applying a fragrance-free moisturizer, but use it sparingly. Consult your SMP Artist for recommendations, ensuring it contains no harsh ingredients, and avoid those with active ingredients like AHAs. Your SMP artist can guide you towards preferred brands.

Beyond the 15-day mark, your next treatment is likely on the horizon. Prior to your appointment, expect instructions, including the use of a sulphate-free shampoo and the option to shave your head.

Following the 15-day mark post your final session, your scalp might have sufficiently healed for a return to your regular routine. If uncertain, don’t hesitate to seek our guidance. Each scalp is unique, and healing times can vary slightly from one individual to another.

 

SMP Sustenance

Nurturing Timeless Brilliance

Nurturing your scalp is the secret to prolonged and impactful results. While adhering to the initial SMP aftercare guidelines is crucial, daily care is equally important for optimal outcomes.

 

  • Minimize sun exposure and make it a daily practice to wear Factor 50 sun protection on your face and scalp.
  • Steer clear of products containing active ingredients like AHA’s or Glycolic Acid for scalp care.
  • Limit alcohol consumption, as high alcohol concentrations in products can contribute to pigment fading.

 

We trust you’re delighted with your results, and for any queries or guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to your dedicated SMP Artist. Your satisfaction is our priority.
