Healthy scalp is vital to best looking scalp micropigmentation procedure. When skin is smooth and moisturized it is easier to tattoo it. It is less sensitive during the procedure and it absorbs and keeps ink better, also heals faster.
During summer days skin can get dry because of the exposure to the sun and wind, sometimes due to the chlorine in the pool or saltwater in pools or oceans.
In the winter months the changes in temperature between the inside and outside cause the skin to be more sensitive and drier. Warm air at home and furnaces and electric heating also dries out the skin. Many notice more flaking (almost like dandruff), itchiness and sensitivity.
During the consultation, I check the scalp for little imperfections and dryness or for oily skin. The BEFORE instructions are as important as AFTER instructions.
Let’s concentrate on DRY skin
. You can do a sugar scrub (half a teaspoon of coconut oil and half a teaspoon of sugar…. Mimix and massage into scalp for couple of minutes, then shower off. It is great on hands and face also ?) couple of times before your procedure. Then discuss the aftercare between the sessions with your technician. They will be able to advise you depending on your skin type.
. Moisturize daily (especially after shower). Many men moisturize their face and hands buy never moisturize their scalp. Coconut oil is all natural, absorbs quickly and moisturizes well. I also recommended Aveeno lotion, which is a great moisturizer and it also is a little mattifying leaving the scalp moisturized, but not oily looking.
. Try to avoid using hair fibers or concealers which get stuck in the pores and are difficult to clean properly before the procedure.
Also, NO ALCOHOL for 24-48 hours before your appointment (it is a blood thinner, and you may experience more bleeding and uneven healing.
Take care of your skin. The better the canvas… The better the masterpiece.
