Aftercare

  • Clean teeth twice a day as normal, rinse tooth paste off toothbrush and give the tongue a gentle wipe. – green blob is normal, it is a wet scar. 
  • Rinse mouth out after food, cigarettes and kissing for the first 2 weeks. 
  • Come back in 1-2 weeks for smaller bar. 


EATING – 

  • Slowly eat small bites of food.
    Avoid eating spicy, salty, acidic, or hot temperature foods or beverages for a few days.
  • Cold foods and beverages are soothing and help reduce swelling.
  • Foods like mashed potatoes and oatmeal are hard to eat because they stick to your mouth and jewellery.
  • For tongue piercing, try to keep your tongue level in your mouth as you eat because the jewellery can get between your teeth when your tongue turns. 
  • WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.
  • SALINE rinse as needed during healing. For certain placements it may be easier to apply using clean gauze/cotton bud with saline solution.
      A brief rinse afterward will remove any residue.
  • If your piercer suggests using soap, gently lather around the piercing and rinse as needed. Avoid using harsh soaps, or soaps with dyes, fragrances, or triclosan.
  • RINSE briefly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. It is NOT necessary to rotate the jewellery through the piercing.
  • DRY by gently patting with clean, disposable paper products because cloth towels can harbour bacteria and snag on jewellery, causing injury or a clean Cotton bud.
  • Maintain cleanliness of masks, telephones, headphones, eyeglasses, helmets, hats, and anything that contacts the pierced area.
  • Use caution when styling your hair and advise your stylist of a new or healing piercing.
  • Use a clean pillowcase if you have pets in your bed. 


New piercings can have some bruising or redness this is normal as it is an invasive treatment.

What is normal 

Swelling / tenderness / redness will appear over the first 1-3 weeks, you can ice your piercing to help reduce swelling (5 minutes on, 5 minutes off). Some minor bleeding / bruising / discolouration is normal for the first week or so and not necessarily a sign of complication. Your piercing may remain in this state for around 4-6 weeks.

New piercings can become infected this is why it is important to follow aftercare instructions.

Cleaning Solution- one spray (don’t saturate) onto piercing , clean any crusts off with cotton bud then dry with a clean cotton bud.

It is important that you take the proper steps in the aftercare regime before enjoying the outcome of your scalp pigmentation treatment. Failing to do so can minimise the effectiveness of your results.

For the first few days after the scalp pigmentation procedure, there are several steps you should take care in following. Ensure to avoid:

  • Touching your scalp (unless absolutely necessary);
  • Wearing a cap, hat, helmet, or any other article of headwear that could irritate and rub your scalp;
  • Exposing your head to any sunlight;
  • Excessive sweating, such as from exercise;
  • Washing your scalp;
  • Shaving your scalp;
  • Swimming

After this initial period of a few days, your scalp will have begun to heal and adjust to its new pigmentation.
However, there are still steps you must follow, in order to achieve proper aftercare of your scalp micropigmentation procedure.
For the next two weeks after your treatment, you should:

  • Wash your scalp daily, with water only;
  • Moisturise your scalp daily, with an alcohol-free moisturiser (we recommend Palmer’s Cocoa Butter);
  • Shave your head gently, with care not to be abrasive;
  • Apply sunscreen with at least SPF30 to your head, if you go into bright and direct sunlight;
  • Wear a swimming cap when you swim;
  • Avoid sweating excessively;
  • Do not itch, pick, or scratch your scalp.


After a fortnight has passed, you should:

  • Wash and moisturise your scalp daily;
  • Take care when shaving your scalp;
  • Apply sunscreen with at least SPF30 when you go into strong sunlight.

In the immediate aftermath of your treatment, the pigmentation of your treatment will appear darker,
While the pigmentation may appear paler at first after a wash, due to the healing. 

The true and final colour will appear one week after your final session.

WHAT IS SMP?

Scalp micro pigmentation Is a non surgical treatment for both men and women who have hair loss like baldness, thinning hair, scarring, patches or receding hairline. 

The process in which a needle is used to deposit pigment/ ink in tiny dots within the upper layers of skin of the scalp.

When combined with thousands of other dots and blended skilfully an illusion of hair is created.
