Life After Scalp Micropigmentation
So, you’ve taken the plunge and decided to get scalp micropigmentation. It is a transformative and exciting procedure, but you may still have reservations concerning a couple of factors. What is the recovery period for a process like this? What will my friends and family think? Will it be noticeable that I’ve undergone this procedure? A talk with one of Hairline Ink’s specialists will give you a more unobstructed view of the process, but there are some common questions that we can answer in this post to put your mind at ease. Scalp micropigmentation is a life-changing procedure and is definitely worth the time and money spent.
After the procedure is complete, your friends and family (who you might not have told about your procedure) may initially be confused. Scalp micropigmentation is so realistic that it will look like you’ve regrown a full head of hair! The organic pigments that Hairline Ink uses, in combination with our sophisticated shallow application process produce a very realistic hairline. Your friends, family, and acquaintances will have no idea that you’ve undergone the pigmentation process and many of them may even recommend that you grow your hair out!
Another question that the experts at Hairline Ink hear a lot is what kind of recovery period should be expected for this procedure, and what sort of aftercare is involved? There is a recovery period, but it’s extremely short compared to the extended recovery period of something like a hair transplant, which can sideline you for weeks.
Immediately after the first procedure you will take a period of three days to allow your scalp to heal. You should avoid sweating, and the use of water and soaps on your head to let the pigment set in. After ten days, you should begin using light soaps to wash your scalp regularly. This helps to eliminate any buildup of dead skin. You can also use an anti-shine moisturizer to achieve this effect, but we still recommend waiting for at least a week before beginning this treatment.
After the procedure, we also recommend shaving your head regularly to make your pigmented scalp match up visually with the rest of your head. These small maintenance procedures are all you need to do to make sure that your scalp remains as natural-looking as possible.
