I get this question so frequently that sometimes people make their decision on it as to whether or not they qualify for Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP).
I’ll go into more detail about this after describing the scalp micropigmentation healing procedure.
So scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic hair follicle replication tattoo. It’s thousands of tiny dots all over your head that can make your hair look thicker, and denser, or reconstruct your hairline. It can be used in a variety of scenarios involving hair loss. But any type of reconstruction is a truly great service for those who are using it particularly.
There Is No Recovery Period After The Scalp Micropigmentation Session
That is one of the key advantages of scalp micropigmentation. No one will be able to tell that you had it done if you leave the studio right away. No one is required to take time off from work. It requires very little maintenance, and the full healing time is only about seven days.
I have to remind my gym clients and exercise enthusiasts that they must refrain from perspiring for four days after the procedure. It means that you shouldn’t sweat excessively. Tiny scabs form after getting a tattoo, and they’re quite delicate. This means that the pigment beneath your skin, which is where these scabs are actually linked, is settling. Layering is crucial to the realism of scalp micropigmentation, therefore we want to ensure that it heals in place.
Therefore, if you want to achieve the best outcomes, you must ensure that the scab falls off naturally, which usually occurs between days 5 and 7.
It is crucial to treat your head gently for the first four days and avoid being too rough with the towel or letting perspiration or any other type of friction wipe off the scabs because they need to stay in place.
In other words, you can resume exercising after four days. However, it’s better to wait seven days for your health to return to normal before starting another intense workout routine. Nevertheless, if you wait for the first four days, everything will be fine.
After My SMP Has Fully Healed, Can I Sweat?
The point of scalp micropigmentation is that it is low maintenance and suitable for people who are active, busy, or simply don’t want to worry about a lot of hair loss applications, so I think it’s also important to note that after your scalp micropigmentation is completely healed, you never have to worry about this again. Therefore, with many issues, such as hair loss medications or the expense and recovery time of surgical remedies like hair transplants.
Should I Wait Four Days After Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Before Exercising?
Thus, a scalp micropigmentation operation requires 2 to 3 consultations in total. There is a seven-day healing period following each consultation, and in order to achieve the best outcomes during this time, you must follow a number of rules. In order to allow your scalp micropigmentation to settle beneath your skin, you do need to wait four days after each treatment to preserve the extremely delicate scabs that are growing.
Your SMP is safe once your scalp has recovered. To ensure that you get the result you want, it is your duty to take really good care of it for those first four days. Therefore, how this will actually work is that after your initial appointment, if you go four days without significant perspiration, you can stroll outside and engage in other activities.
Scalp Micropigmentation Aftercare
Basically, you only need to watch out for yourself during the first 4 to 12 total days of exercise and try not to sweat excessively. Then, exercise as much as you like runs a marathon, or do whatever else you like because the whole purpose of getting something this minimal maintenance is to ensure that you may resume living the lifestyle you desire as soon as your wounds have healed.
