Hygiene and SMP

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Does hygiene matter as far as scalp micropigmentation is concerned? Hygiene is extremely important for SMP. If you have just started a career in scalp micropigmentation, make sure you practice proper hygiene at all times so the client is safe. This is crucial to ensure the maximum level of safety for SMP artists as well as clients. Hygiene and safety go hand in hand.

The Needles

No doubt, the SMP needles are the most important part of the micropigmentation project. Gone are the days when needles would be boiled in hot water and sharpened before reuse. Yes, that’s how they were sanitized. These days, the best SMP needles are for single use so there is no risk of infection. These needles come sterilized at the processing plant. SMP DM needles have a stamp of quality.

It is important to choose a trusted brand when it comes to investing in scalp micropigmentation needles for your SMP project.

Disinfecting SMP Equipment

Another most important part of SMP project is to use sterile pen jackets that cover the tattoo machine and prevent it from infection. The barrier film or jackets are wrapped around the machine to protect secretions, such as blood, lymph, or ink, from entering the pen. It makes a protective barrier around the machine. A trained and skilled scalp artist understands the need for a sterile scalp pen cover that is wrapped around the machine to kill any viruses or infection.

DermMicro sterile pen cover promotes a sterile environment for SMP.  These jackets are designed to fit snugly around the pen.  Unlike other similar products on the market that are loose and wide and leave tattoo pen exposed at places, these sterile pen covers complement the pen and fit it tightly. The tip is smaller than the needle opening. This is done so that the sterile cover is locked in place.  These pen covers are sterile so you do not have to worry about any parts of the DM pen being exposed to contaminants.

Power supply

The machine requires frequent contact with the scalp artist who may need to turn it on and off to adjust the speed every now and then. A barrier film is tied around the power supply as a protective barrier to germs.

What’s more, since a power supply uses electricity, it must be wrapped in a protective film sterilized with an antiseptic solution. Once the barrier film is removed, the SMP practitioner must wipe clean the tattoo machine and power supply with disinfecting wipes.

It is better to be safe than sorry. If you are looking for the best quality sterile pen covers, get them at the DermMicro store. This jacket fits your SMP HD pen snugly so there is no risk of any spills or infection. You can order the best sterile barrier grip covers on the DM online store. The disposable clear PE plastic medical sleeves add an extra layer of safety to the SMP environment.
