What is the recovery after an SMP procedure?
Scalp Micro-pigmentation is a non-invasive procedure and requires no downtime away from work, school, or other functions. Recovery times vary from person-to-person as you’d expect. A complete recovery averages between 7-10 days. A client should expect a little redness in the treated area for about 1-2 days.
Will Scalp micropigmentation change color over time like tattoos?
Absolutely not! Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics. Scalp Micro Pigmentation ink is different than traditional tattoo ink in which the pigment contains no additional colorants or additives and will only lighten over time, and not discolor like traditional tattoo ink.
Will I need a touch-up?
Eventually yes, the scalp micropigmentation process typically lasts about 5-6 years. After that time, a client may experience some slight fading which they can come back in for a quick touch-up.
Can I wear a hat directly following my scalp micro-pigmentation procedure?
The answer is yes; you can wear a hat or skull cap after your SMP procedure is complete. However, we encourage our clients to disregard most of their old hats, hold their heads up high, and walk with a little extra bounce in their step!
