Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as SMP , is a non-invasive hair loss solution that has become increasingly popular in recent years. The treatment involves depositing small dots of pigment on the scalp to create the illusion of a shaved head or to fill in areas of thinning hair. SMP Hair is an effective solution for those suffering from hair loss, balding, and thinning hair.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST SESSION OF SMP HAIR
Understand your goals for SMP Hair
Although clients have never left our clinic disappointed, we still recommend getting ready. It is important to know the expectations of the procedure and evaluate them. Make sure you don’t have irrational expectations because in that case you’ll just be disappointed. Consider what hairline style you want, whether you want it to be defined or soft/gentle. Have you already thought about what color intensity and density you are interested in?
Stop using certain products
Avoid the use of medicinal products, antibiotics or other products that may irritate the scalp at least 48 hours before the procedure. It is necessary for the scalp to be cleansed and soothed, which will make our work easier.
Take care of your scalp
You must have soft skin that will accept the micro-needle more easily. This will give you the best results. All you need is a dose of non-irritating moisturizer after washing your head thoroughly; twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, for a few days before the procedure.
Do not sunbathe or use a solarium for at least 7 days before the procedure.
Cut your hair the night before.
Use a trimmer to get your preferred hair style and length. You can also use a razor or a wet shaver, but do it the night before. If you do this in the morning of the procedure, chances are that the hair follicles will still be a little open and the skin will be irritated and red.
Wash your scalp
It is important to thoroughly wash and moisturize the scalp before the procedure. This is even more important in the post-treatment period, because you will not be able to wash your scalp for several days.
Avoid anything that can thin the blood.
Caffeine, aspirin, alcohol, drugs and energy drinks thin the blood, which can cause bleeding, poor healing and pigment migration. Avoid these products on the day of your procedure and you’ll be fine.
Eat a meal before the procedure
Look at the duration of the procedure. Eat so that you have enough energy, you will have a needle in your head thousands of times in a few hours and there will be no stopping for food breaks. Stay well fed and hydrated at all times.
