Did you recently get your Scalp Micropigmentation done? Congratulations! We’re glad you found the best treatment for hair loss. To ensure sustenance, and that your new hair looks as good as it can, there are a few aftercare tips you should follow. Following these simple procedures will help to guarantee that your scalp heals properly and your pigment is long-lasting following a session of micropigmentation on your head. Aside from that, your specialist will also share these suggestions with you.
To begin with:
As soon as you have undergone SMP treatment, you should treat your scalp as if it were an open wound in order to reduce the likelihood of infection. You shouldn’t wash your scalp, but you should make sure it is kept clean. You must refrain from utilising chlorinated pools, saunas, steam rooms, or tanning beds for a period of 30 days following the completion of your final treatment. This way, a high-quality and long-lasting outcome can be guaranteed.
During the first 4 Days:
One of the most crucial rules for keeping your scalp healthy at this time is to avoid washing your hair. After SMP procedures, you could find that washing your hair suddenly seems quite appealing. But don’t do it. It’s okay to use water to clean your scalp for the first four days because your scalp is still tender. But make sure you avoid shampoos and other irritants for the first 4 days. Additionally, avoid hair removal and contact with the treated region.
During Day 5 to Day 7:
From day 5 to day 7, you should avoid heavy sweating, scrubbing, exposure to sunlight, and touching with bare hands. Take your recommended medication for the first seven days, and make sure you’re drinking lots of water. To keep your scalp clean, you can gently rinse your head with lukewarm water and a mild soap, use a soft, damp towel to clean the region. Donning a bald cap today would allow you to shave your head afterwards. Electric foil shavers are necessary. Minimize any scabs that may still be visible on your head when you are shaving your head. Just wet your hair well and apply little amounts of water to your scalp. If you can, please take a fast, lukewarm shower and keep away from sulphate shampoos at this time.
During Day 8 to Day 14:
Your head should be getting better and healing during days 8 to 14 after the treatment. It is still healing, but will take time. Following a pleasant aftercare routine will help. Carefully shave or cut your hair if it becomes required. You can gently wash the treated area with water and soap once it has been treated. When applied sparingly, moisturiser will also help to accelerate the healing process during this time period. However, make certain that it is fragrance-free.
Day 15 onwards:
If your scalp has recovered enough, you can return to your normal routine after 15 days. After 15 days, you will have your next therapy appointment scheduled for you. You will be instructed to shampoo your hair and shave your head prior to your next follow-up session.
It is necessary to execute a number of actions and steps when providing long-term care.
– Avoid chlorinated pools, saunas, and steam rooms for the first month of your treatment.
– UV rays are hazardous; always use sunscreen on your skin before going outside to avoid being sunburned or burned. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 will help to keep you safe from the elements. For the first month after treatment, avoid tanning the treated region completely.
– During the first month, if you want to wash your hair, use a fragrance-free, antibacterial soap to avoid irritating your scalp.
– After washing and before night, massage a moisturiser into your scalp to help keep it nourished.
– Avoid applying AHA-containing products in the treatment region if you want to keep the pigment’s colour from fading too quickly.
– If you intend to consume alcoholic beverages, stay away from items with a high alcohol concentration.
By following these simple aftercare tips, you can ensure you’re getting the best out of your scalp micropigmentation treatment.
