Caring For Your SMP Treatment
Once your scalp micropigmentation is complete, you should think about how to maintain it. Our website provides a pre-treatment and aftercare guide to help you get started. This guide covers what you should avoid doing immediately after treatment and while your head is healing.
All of Skalp® practitioners have all had the procedure done themselves. They understand everything you need to know to keep your new hairline looking great for years to come. To make things even easier, they have picked out four top products you should be using to continue caring for your SMP and keep your head tattoo looking perfect.
Post Tattoo Calming Moisturiser
We advise that for four days after each treatment you do not use any moisturiser on your scalp. This is to allow the skin to heal and avoid any sensitivity issues the cream may create. Once this period has passed, we recommend that you use Eucerin DermoCapillaire CALMING UREA SC moisturiser.
This particular moisturiser is for people with a dry and itchy scalp. It contains a non-sticky leave-in formula which is insensitive and perfect for those who have just had the treatment. The ingredients help to restore hydration levels which is important when caring for your SMP. It will relieve the skin from any dryness that can lead to itching.
Anti Shine Gel
A major concern for clients who have had SMP is dealing with a shiny scalp. Most people do not want the light to reflect off their head to make them feel they are standing out even more. The MONISTAT product is highly recommended as it helps men combat oily looking skin.
It doesn’t contain any scent and creates a smooth barrier over the scalp. MONISTAT also helps reduce any redness after shaving and leaves the skin looking in great condition. The added benefit is after rubbing into the scalp it also makes SMP look even more like real hair.
Suncream For Bald Heads
Our practitioners recommend this sunscreen for use during the hot summer months. Your scalp is prone to sunburn without hair as protection. It is easy to forget about it during the day only to realise after several hours you have skin damage from for too much unprotected exposure to the sun.
This is a non-sticky and non-oily product that doesn’t leave any white marks on the skin. Apply it at least 30 minutes before exposure. If you perspire frequently, towel your scalp or come into contact with water, apply once more to protect the skin.
On the Go Mattifying
Sometimes you need an easy-to-use product when you’re on the go. If you’re at work, going out for the evening, or travelling, moisturisers and creams aren’t always practical to carry around. That’s why we advise using Boots Skin Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets which are really easy to apply.
The oil-absorbing sheets remove excess oil and with it any shine on the skin. They are soft to the touch and easily disposed of after use. You simply blot over the scalp and go. The sheets have also been dermatologically tested so will not cause any adverse reactions on the skin.
