Pre & Post-SMP Care Tips

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Scalp micropigmentation is growing in popularity as a hair restoration solution for pattern baldness. The solution is meant for people looking for a less invasive procedure to have a full head of hair. While SMP has a faster recovery time than surgical procedures, it does require some care and maintenance and reduce the chances of any complications. Here are some pre-and post-SMP care tips.

SMP Care and Preparation

Now that you have decided to go for scalp micropigmentation, you should not touch alcohol for at least two days before the procedure. Remember, alcohol is a blood thinner and can result in excessive bleeding during the procedure. Besides, your scalp artist will advise you to avoid ibuprofen and aspirin, which are believed to prevent blood clotting, thus increasing the chances of bleeding.

One Night Before

Sound sleep is crucial to preparing for the procedure. You want to go to the SMP clinic with a stress-free mind. Additionally, stay hydrated before the procedure. This should help the scalp tolerate the pigment better. One pre-SMP care tip is to exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells a day before the procedure.

The D-Day

Wash your scalp well as you won’t be able to do so after the procedure as a post-SMP care tip. Eat a balanced breakfast and avoid adding any oily products on your scalp. Excess oil must be avoided at any cost as it might prevent the pigment retention.

Post-SMP Care Tips

After the procedure, don’t be surprised to feel an extra sensitive scalp. These symptoms will remain for a few days only and disappear on their own. However, you want to avoid exposing your head to water. So any activities that could expose it to water must be avoided for a few days after scalp micropigmentation.

You want your scalp to heal faster so focusing on SMP aftercare will help. Most scalp artists use ointments to avoid pigment absorption in the client’s hair following the procedure. Pigment absorption can be a cause for concern for longer hair.  But the products on the market use thicker substances that are difficult to remove. Luckily, DermMicro has come up with Scalp Oil to create a protective barrier around the client’s hair and scalp. Little itching is natural as your skin heals so you need not worry about it. However, you should avoid the temptation to scratch it. It needs some time for the scalp to heal and prevent bacterial infection.

The goal is to avoid infection while ensuring that the pigment stays. Scalp Oil works like a charm to prevent skin infection, thanks to its antibacterial properties. The product washes away easily with any soap water mixture.

What’s So Special About Scalp Oil

DermMicro has specially formulated Scalp Oil with ingredients similar to the widely popular A&D Ointment. Their product is also composed of essential oils that are well-known for their antibacterial properties.

Scalp Oil is an effective formulation for post-SMP care as well. It works on clients with thinning hair and bald patches. The thinned formulation makes it easier to use and clean up equally quickly. Harness the power of Scalp Oil to help with the scalp healing process and ensure the pigment remains intact.
