Taking Care of Yourself After Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure

However long it took you, your session has now come to a close of the business that was your scalp micropigmentation procedure. Even if you have yet to undertake the process, you would like to know more about what happens after the process. That should be commended.

The scalp micropigmentation process is quite similar to that of getting a tattoo. In essence, you are getting a tattoo on your scalp, but with a different target and outcome in this case.

After the process is completed, you will grow new skin over the top layer, and this is what makes the outcome of the process look as natural as possible.

After the treatment is completed, life will take a little bit of a rest by the side of the road before continuing on your usual path. This is what you will need to do over the next few days.


The first five days after the procedure.


The process of scalp micropigmentation is generally puncturing the skin of your scalp in thousands of places. When put together, these all act like an open wound, and they should be treated as such.

What that means is you will not be going anywhere near chlorinated pools or any kind of spas for at least a month after treatment. In the first fie days, you will have to avoid activities that cause you to sweat. Also avoid any form of grooming on your head. It is also safe to say that avoiding sunlight is in your best interests.

The next five days.


Your head should be healing up nicely by this point. The emphasis on the previous statement should be healing. You still have a way to go before you are completely healed.

As with the previous five days, any form of grooming is still not quite safe, maybe some light shaving and cleaning lightly a damp cloth. No matter how dirty you may feel, no soap or shampoo, no matter how mild, should touch your head.

At this point, as with tattoos, some skin may begin to peel or even some scabs may form. It would be best to resist the urge to peel these off. Don’t even attempt to use some scrubbing technique to deal with the issue.

From day 10 to infinity.


Depending on how quickly you heal from injuries, the 10th day will usually mean that you have sufficiently healed enough to return to your daily grind. How your healing has progressed thus far will determine how soon you will be scheduled for your next appointment.

As is the case with the previous session, the practitioner will ask you to give your head a good wash, this time with shampoo or something that works for your skin, and to also get a haircut. You should note that spending too much time under the sun is likely to irritate your scalp. Also, don’t be alarmed to notice that the scalp tattoo will have faded a little bit after the first session. This is quite par for the course.
