About a week has passed since your first Scalp Micropigmentation visit, and since most clinics offer two sessions per treatment, you must be due for another. Luckily, the second and third times are the same song and dance as the first one. There should be no surprises, but depending on how the first session went, there may still be unanswered questions about the rest of the procedure.
You can start your second session faster, as most clinics require only a one-week gap. Once you’re in the room, your practitioner will examine to assess the progress of your scalp from the previous treatment. If the pigment has faded too much, this visit will correct it. As a side note, direct exposure to ultraviolet light may change the color.
In the second session, your practitioner will fill in the foundation from last time.” Your practitioner will darken the shade, allowing your look to come alive. Here, your practitioner blends the SMP and actual hairs for a seamless look. And as for the level of pain (no surprises here), it will be the similar to the first. This is also the time to ask for any adjustments. You may have changed your mind and wanted your hairline at a different level. Whatever your heart’s content, your practitioner will do all they can to ensure you’re satisfied.
The third treatment is optional, with a longer waiting time between sessions to let the scalp heal. This time is either for those wanting to go a shade darker or if your practitioner finds another session is needed to complete your look. However, most clients need two as long as they properly maintain their look.
