You enjoy going into the sunlight. But prolonged exposure to UV rays is damaging to the skin. Sunscreens protect skin from the harmful effects of solar rays. The story is the same with those who have undergone scalp micropigmentation treatment. SMP is a hair restoration solution for those with pattern baldness. It involves the use of needles to insert pigment into the scalp to create a look of a shaved head. Ideally people with baldness, receding hairline, and thinning hair seek SMP help. A majority of SMP clients prefer a buzzed head look. But how does sunlight damage SMP?
Sun Damages SMP
Although scalp micropigmentation is a permanent treatment for hair loss, sun can seriously damage the pigment. SMP pigment can fade away if exposed to direct sunlight. One of the best ways to keep the pigment for long time is to avoid direct exposure to ultraviolet rays.
Directly exposing your scalp to US rays can accelerate pigment fading. If you want to protect your SMP from the damage of sun rays, investing in SPF-containing sunscreen can help preserve your new hairline for longer. Solar rays can cause accelerated fading of your scalp tattoo. By wearing a sunscreen with SPF of 30-50 that blocks 97% of UV-B radiation.
No doubt, wearing a hat can also shade your scalp. But not everyone is comfortable donning a cap or a hat for a long period of time. In that case, a high-quality sunscreen can shield your scalp and prevent solar rays from penetrating. Besides, it is important to moisturize the scalp to keep the skin healthy. Flaky and dry skin will cause your hairline to look uneven. Moisturizing it is a way to provide long-lasting hydration, keep the scalp healthy, and improve the skin’s elasticity.
How can Sunscreen help
