Aftercare for Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) [Back to Aftercare Menu]

What to expect after procedure

​ 

  • There will be some swelling, itching and scabbing for 2 weeks. Aloe Vera Gel will help soothe the scalp and allow the area to heal faster. To ease discomfort you may take a pain killer. These symptoms will subside within 1 to 2 weeks, depending on how sensitive your skin is.

 

  • Over the initial few days the pigmented area of skin will form a crust/scab. This will last for 14-21 days until healing takes place.

 

  • Colors may appear dark straight after the procedure. Do NOT be alarmed as the darkness will lighten after 2 weeks once all of the scabs have fallen off.

 

  • It is important that the healing process takes its natural course. Pigment will be lost if the crusts/scabs are removed or knocked off prematurely.

 

After Care Instructions

 

  • The following instructions must be carefully followed for at least two weeks post procedure to ensure pigment retention, prevention of infection and successful results:

 

  • To prevent infection, try not touch the pigmented area with your fingers until it is completely healed.

 

  • Avoid applying any hair products to hair and scalp until areas are fully healed.

 

  • Be cautious when sleeping at night as excessive rubbing can make the area sore.

 

  • Apply Aloe Vera Gel with a Q-tip on small areas or use freshly washed clean hands/fingers for larger areas to avoid infection.  Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands.

 

  • Do not scrub, scratch, rub or pick at the crust/scab that forms.  Allow it to flake off by itself.  If it is removed before it is completely healed, the pigment underneath can be pulled out.

 

  • Avoid salty foods, alcohol and coffee during the recovery period as it slows down the healing process. Smoking can also cause infections so avoid if possible.

 

  • Do not wash your head in any way for at least 3 days following a treatment.

 

  • You may wash your hair/ scalp gently with a mild shampoo or a facial  cleansing gel after a week.

 

  • Avoid the gym and saunas until the area is fully healed. Swimming should be avoided if possible as the chemicals in the pool will fade the pigments.

 

  • Wear proper sun protection each time you are in the sun to preserve the pigments (sun block, cap, hats) .
