What Type of SMP Treatment Do You Think You’ll Need? Full or Partial Scalp?

Or, Density Filler Treatment Area That Has Hair?

SMP Full or Partial Scalp Treatment

Before and After Care Instructions

On the day of your first SMP (scalp micropigmentation procedure)

Please be sure to avoid getting a sunburn on your head before each SMP session. Start using a sunblock 7 days before. Do not wet shave 24 hours before. Cut hair down to zero guard if you are not having a “Density only” treatment. Be sure to stay hydrated, use a mild exfoliating gentle scrub, for about 5 days before and follow by applying a moisturizer 2-3 times a day prior.re)

I highly recommend eating a meal prior to the session. Also clients are encouraged to bring a snack and a beverage. You will be with me for about 3-4 hours on this first session. I will work up a demo hairline as a preview to be sure we are on the same page. You are welcome to bring in photos that appeal to you.

Signs and symptoms of infection:

SWELLING: A slight amount of swelling and redness is typical for a fresh tattoo. This should subside within 24 to 48 hours. If swelling becomes excessive, uncomfortable and you feel the pain radiating beyond the site of the tattoo, then this is a sign of infection.

FEVER: Fever is a symptom of an underlying condition, which is most often an infection. Please contact a medical provider if you think you may have a possible infection.
