After your Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) treatment, your confidence is restored, you look and feel great, and you haven’t smiled that much in years. Scalp micropigmentation is a revolutionary process that replicates the 3D look of natural hair follicles on the scalp, and the experts at Hairline Ink have refined the process to be completed after typically just two treatments. The results are impressive, and you want to keep them that way as long as possible. That’s why we recommend you take a few precautions and treat your scalp micropigmentation with a few aftercare products.
UV rays from the sun can fade your SMP treatment quickly. To achieve the longest-lasting results possible, we recommend SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. It’s important to remember that even if you can tan easily and do not usually experience a sunburn, the UV rays still damage the scalp micropigmentation’s coloration.
Sometimes, our clients notice a slight shine on their scalp and want to prevent this from happening. Milk of Magnesia is easy to find, relatively cheap, and an effective product for reducing any shine on the scalp. Max Anti-Shine Gel and HeadBlade HeadLube Matte Lotion also give the scalp a more consistent appearance with the rest of your skin.
A week after your treatment, start moisturizing your scalp again. Wait a week to moisturize, as your scalp is still healing. Some patients need help choosing the right moisturizer and its frequency of use. The important thing is that your scalp receives moisturizer a few times a week. Staying hydrated also helps prevent the scalp from drying out.
