Why Does My SMP Keep Fading?

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Scalp micropigmentation is a permanent procedure. However, there are several factors that can cause fading of the pigment. Unless you are aware of those factors and practice scalp aftercare tips, your pigmentation is at a high risk of fading. Choosing an unskilled scalp practitioner, spending hours in the sun, and using harmful, abrasive aftercare products are some of the factors that make your scalp pigment prone to fading. In normal conditions, the pigment fades away slowly over a period of time and requires touch-up sessions after a few years.

How Does SMP Look in the Sun?

Scalp micropigmentation looks the same everywhere. But if you spend a lot of time in the sun, it can be harmful to your skin and speed up fading of the pigment. Ultraviolet rays of the sun can cause sunburn and fading.

When it comes to SMP treatment, investing in a good scalp aftercare kit should be the right choice. This kit should include moisturizer, sunscreen, and anti-shine, besides you should cover your head with a hat to protect it from the sun. SMP lasts a few years before it shows signs of fading.

Stay away from the sun for at least 10 days as this is the time when the skin is irritated and needs time to heal. The goal is to avoid excessive sweating. Microorganisms can infect healing. You should also avoid using alcohol-containing products on your pigmented head, which can adversely affect the pigments. You may also want to avoid scrubbing the head. If you scrub the scalp after SMP, it can cause fading of the pigment.

Moisturizing the scalp is one of the best ways to keep the skin looking healthy. If you reach out to water-based moisturizes, they are a great addition to your scalp aftercare regime that will reduce shine. Dry skin will make the hairline look flaky. It would help to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated to keep your skin elastic.
