How to Take Care of And Maintain Your Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment?

One of the great things about SMP is it’s extremely easy to care for with low maintenance.

General SMP After Care Treatment

Making sure your SMP treatment last as long as possible and looks its best is our goal for all clients. Follow our SMP aftercare regimen!

4-5 Days After SMP Treatment Sessions:

Avoid the following:

  • Chlorinated pools, saunas, steam rooms, and tanning beds for one month after your final SMP treatment session.
  • Sweating (avoid intense exercise)
  • Rinsing, scrubbing, and/or shampooing the treated area
  • Shaving the treated area
  • Exposure to long periods in sunlight
  • Touching with hands
  • Things you can do after treatment:
  • Wear a hat, scarf, or skull cap
  • Lightly dab the area with a wet cloth (do not soak cloth)
  • Sleep any way you wish
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Take prescribed medicines

5-7 Days After SMP Treatment Sessions (until you return for follow up treatments):

Avoid the following:

  • Scratching the scalp or removing scabbing
  • Shampooing or exfoliating the treated
  • Use of tanners and/or any other skin irritants
  • Things you can do after treatment:
  • Carefully shave or cut your hair (we recommend you come to the salon for styling)
  • Lightly rinse with water
  • Apply fragrance-free moisturizer
  • Resume light exercise

Make sure to use a sunblock of SPF 30 or higher if you are going to have long days in the sun to ensure the longevity of your treatment and also wearing hats will do the trick as well.

For dry scalp, I do recommend to shampoo often with a sulfate-free shampoo and using a light organic moisturizer such as argan oil or shea butter.

To help with shiny and oily scalp, use sulfate-free shampoos and dust off with baby powder or a matt finish moisturizer of your choice!
