Scalp micropigmentation is a permanent cosmetic scalp tattoo technique. SMP is a non-invasive treatment in which very thin micro blades are used to deposit pigment into the scalp to create an illusion of fuller hair.
Usually, SMP lasts for 5 to 6 years. But after that time, pigments begin to fade. Scalp micropigmentation is an ideal option for those who are suffering from excessive hair loss problems or baldness.
Things you should take care of or keep in mind after the SMP treatments.
The first and most important thing is to avoid going directly to the sunlight for a few days. Too much exposure to the sun can harm your scalp and cause infection. Wear a cap/hat or some headgear to cover your scalp for better protection.
Avoid contact with water for a few weeks. After the treatment, the scalp areas get irritation because of swelling. To heal treated are fast, protect the scalp from the water is a very important part of aftercare. You can avoid swimming, bathing, or even exercise or going to the gym because after any physical activity, getting sweat is very natural. Keep your treated scalp dry as much you can.
To protect or heal fast your treated areas, avoid using hair care products. Haircare products contain harsh and toxic chemicals like paraben and sulfate that can damage your scalp badly and may cause side effects. Getting inflammation or rashes after the treatment is obvious but to heal scalp fast, only use hygiene lotion or creams.
