WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET READY FOR SMP?
Start moisturizing your scalp. If you are shaving, shave the night before so the skin is not irritated right before the procedure. No alcohol for 48 hours before the procedure. If you have more questions, please contact us.LEARN MORE
HOW LONG DOES SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION TAKE?
Each session will take roughly 2-4 hours, depending on the area that has to be treated. The number of sessions differs from client to client as everyone’s scalp reacts differently to the ink and heals differently. To find out how many sessions you may require, feel free to contact us.LEARN MORE
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER SMP?
There will be redness for up to 48 hours after the treatment, depending on your skin type. The initial color will appear darker than the “cured”, healed result, which can take up to 3-4 weeks.GALLERY
MY JOB REQUIRES PHYSICAL LABOUR — WILL SWEATING INTERFERE WITH SMP HEALING?
We recommend that you avoid sweating until at least five days, then you can sweat lightly, and heavy sweating shouldn’t be a problem by day 10. Keep the treated area clean and dry.
WHAT CAN I DO IN THE FIRST THREE DAYS FOLLOWING AN SMP TREATMENT?
You must avoid physical activity as much as possible. Minimize sweating, no water or soap on the head, and no weightlifting or cardio activities. Moving around the house or office will not pose a risk to your procedure.
WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET WATER ON MY SCALP?
You can get your head wet by the third day after your session. At this point, however, we recommend you only splash your head lightly with cool water. Do not put your head directly under the shower for about 5-7 days as some areas of your scalp may still be healing and the pressure of the shower head might be too strong.
WHEN CAN I SHAVE MY HEAD AGAIN AFTER MY SMP TREATMENT?
You can shave by the fourth day with an electric shaver. You must be gentle while doing this in case the skin is still sensitive and irritated.
CAN I LIFT WEIGHTS AFTER SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
You can resume your weightlifting routine a week after the procedure, provided you don’t work up too much of a sweat.
CAN I DO CARDIO AFTER SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
You can resume your cardio routine a week after the procedure. To prolong the life of your micropigmentation we recommend that you use a minimum of SPF 30 sunblock or higher, or wear a hat when in the sun for longer periods of time.
