How To Prepare For Your Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure

You will be required to shower and shampoo your hair thoroughly prior to your procedure and do not apply any topical products.

If you’re having the “buzz cut” procedure, you will need to clip your hair not longer than 1/16” before coming to your appointment. Please do not blade shave your head.

If you’re having a “density” procedure, please leave your hair at its current length.

If you presently wear a hair system, you must stop wearing it for at least 10 days prior to your procedure date. This allows time for the scalp to breathe as well as sufficient time for any adhesive irritations to heal.

The Procedure

Procedures average 4-7 hours, depending on the level of hair loss. Although it’s ideal to complete your procedure in 1 session, occasionally, larger procedures may take 2 consecutive days.

Upon arrival for your procedure, you will meet with your SMP artist. You’ll need to complete all necessary forms. We encourage you to ask any questions you have prior to the commencement of your SMP procedure.

Before the application of SMP begins, your hairline (for buzz cuts), will be drawn to your satisfaction. This typically involves restoring your original hairline and keeping it age appropriate.

The pigment will be mixed, taking into account your skin tone and hair color to help create the best blend. We place follicle-sized points on your scalp with a specialized sterile and hermetically sealed one-time-use needle and a tattooing machine.

Creating an undetectable blend is an art form and is achieved through mastering blending techniques by varying follicle densities.

There is no recuperation time, and an aftercare kit will be provided with further instructions. The scalp will heal itself in a week. During the healing period, swimming, heavy sweating and sun exposure must be avoided.

Keeping the scalp clean is very important. Some areas of the scalp may be red from irritation for approximately 24-72 hours, and this is usually more pronounced on clients with lighter complexions.

After 1 month the applied pigment will cure to its final shade, approximately 20-30% lighter than initially applied. Wearing a hat or sunscreen during extended periods of sun exposure is your best protection in the long term.
