Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation is a quick non-surgical hair loss solution for men and women.
SMP involves the use of specialized equipment (needles, machines and pigments) along with special techniques to implement the pigment at the epidermal layer of the scalp replicating hair follicles and creating the appearance of greater hair density. The procedure is ideal for men and women in early stages of thinning to advanced hair loss as well as for scar camouflage. 
All services are personalized to the individual needs of each and every client.


 

Before Your Treatment

  • The scalp should be washed with a non-abrasive shampoo each day for one week before the procedure.

  • After washing it, the scalp should be moisturized. Any all-natural skin moisturizer should be enough to keep the scalp hydrated before the treatment. By doing so, the pigment will easily penetrate the skin.

  • Refrain from tanning or any burning that peel off the skin of the scalp. Over exposure to ultra violet rays can cause skin damage and will require the skin to heal prior to conducting this session.

  • The client needs to be relaxed, gets a good night’s sleep, and eats hearty meal before the procedure, as this is a very timely procedure.

  • If the client suffers from any skin condition, he or she should consult with their physicians before entering the process.

  • Although it’s not mandatory, the client may bring a hat that can loosely cover his or her head after the treatment. The scalp needs to be able to breath but at the same time be protected from UV rays.

  • If the client wears a hairpiece, he or she has to stop wearing it 10-14 days before the scheduled procedure. Hair systems reduce oxygen flow in the scalp and alter the ink’s absorption.

  • The client must avoid using a razor on the scalp within 24 hours before the procedure.

After Treatment

Redness is completely normal after the procedure for the following 3-5 days.

For 7 days following application of your scalp micropigmentation treatment:

  • Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.

  • Apply your Skin Candy Balm 3-5 times daily until the treated area has healed. Always use clean disposable gloves to prevent bacteria infecting the treated area.

  • No make-up, sun, soap, sauna, jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the recreational bodies of water, contact with animals, gardening for 7-10 days (until area is completely healed), post procedure and after all touch-ups.

  • Before bathing, gently apply light coating of Skin Candy Balm on the treated area using gloves. Repeat these steps for the next 30 days.

  • Do not rub or scratch the treated area while it is healing (pigment may be removed along with the dry tissue).

  • Use a Sun Block after the treated area has healed when standing directly under the sun.

  • Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the treated area (for example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids). Products containing these ingredients will extract or fade your pigment.
