More Than Moisture Control: The Vital Role of Oils in Scalp Tattooing

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

In scalp micropigmentation, also known as scalp tattooing, technicians utilize fine needles to implant thousands of microscopic pigment dots that replicate the look of shaved hair follicles in balding areas. Performed properly, the results create the illusion of a cropped haircut through artistic dot placement and density gradients that mimic natural patterns. 

Applying permanent camouflage pigmentation requires working carefully across the scalp while protecting existing hair from any color absorption. This is where protective barrier oils play a bigger role than simply regulating moisture. Special light scalp oils create a shield to prevent pigment transfer onto longer hair strands during dot application.

What are the benefits?

Without a liquid barrier coating each hair, microscopic permanent pigment particles could penetrate down the hair shaft by capillary action as needles deposit dots in surrounding skin. Even with thorough washing post-treatment, permanent discoloration remains difficult or impossible to fully remove from interior hair structure.

So quality scalp oils formulated specifically for micropigmentation serve the vital function of safeguarding hair color and condition while allowing smooth needle gliding at optimal angles. The oils also facilitate gentle cleansing after sessions compared to thick antibiotic creams. Far more than just lubrication, scalp barrier oils enable precise artistic implantation of permanent concealing dots without distressing pigment absorption into regrowing hair.

Careful application minimizes the risk of permanent coloring and damage – supporting the overall micropigmentation process.

What makes DermMicro Scalp Oil Unique

The scalp protection oil specially formulated for scalp micropigmentation procedures serves a crucial function - creating a temporary barrier to avoid permanent pigment from absorbing into growing hair follicles during treatment. Without a protective layer, hair can soak up SMP pigment particulates leading to discoloration that is extremely difficult to remove even with bleaching or coloring.

Micropigmentation technicians working on clients with longer hair especially encounter problems with tinting. Regular ointments like petroleum-based A&D are too thick and greasy to easily wash out later. The custom scalp oil solves this through an optimized light oil texture that spreads smoothly onto skin and hair using a foam applicator brush. 

Formulated with antibacterial essential oils like clove, thyme and tea tree, the oil also helps prevent infection which is vital for needle-based procedures that penetrate skin creating tiny wounds. The oil aid healing while avoiding excess moisture that breeds bacteria. An oily barrier allows technicians to glide needles smoothly across the scalp during dot application precision.

Made specifically for permanent makeup scalp work, the oil contains skin-nourishing vitamin E, mineral oil and lanolin analogous to A&D but with a thinner viscosity. Most importantly, it prevents any pigment absorption into growing hair strands during artistic application to conceal scarring or recreate the shaved hair look. Afterward the oil rinses clean with regular soap and water without greasy residue or clogged drains. 

Technicians report the specially designed scalp oil allows superior client comfort, improves hygiene and infection control, saves time over messy ointments, and critically ensures no discoloring of longer hair from permanent scalp micropigmentation dots. This makes application easier and optimal results achieved safely. It's rapidly become an essential SMP work tool.
