Maintaining and Sterilizing Scalp Micropigmentation Pens

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Scalp micropigmentation pens are the artist's instruments of choice, which are used to craft natural-looking hairlines and density. However, just like any delicate tool, proper maintenance and sterilization are crucial for optimal performance and client safety. This guide delves into the essential practices for keeping your SMP pens in peak condition and ensuring hygienic procedures.

Deep Cleaning

  • Perform a deep cleaning of the pen once a month if used heavily.
  • Consult the manufacturer's instructions for disassembling the pen for deep cleaning. Some pens may come with specific components with different cleaning protocols.
  • It’s important to use a manufacturer-recommended cleaning solution or a mild, alcohol-free disinfectant solution to clean the SMP pen. You want to avoid any harsh chemicals or abrasives that could damage the pen's delicate parts.
  • Use a soft brush to gently remove any debris or pigment buildup from the pen. Carefully clean the internal components.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean, distilled water and air dry completely before reassembling the pen.
  • You don’t want to use paper towels that could scratch or leave lint behind.
  • Apply a light coat of medical-grade lubricant to the moving parts once you are done with cleaning. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions at all times.


Sterilization is crucial for eliminating harmful microorganisms and preventing the transmission of infections. Many SMP pens undergo autoclaving for sterilization. As a result, an autoclave compatible with the pen is used. An autoclave is a pressurized steam sterilization chamber.

Chemical Sterilization is another technique if autoclaving isn't possible. However, please strictly adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions for dilution, immersion time, and rinsing procedures.

Safety First

SMP pen is critical to the procedure. Its proper maintenance and sterilization can prolong its life and ensure wellbeing of clients. By prioritizing hygiene and following these guidelines, you can ensure safe and effective SMP procedures, building trust and confidence among your clients.

Remember, investing time and effort into maintaining and sterilizing your SMP pens is an investment in your business and your clients' safety. By prioritizing meticulous care, you can ensure your pens deliver their best performance for years to come, contributing to a successful and ethical SMP practice.
