After care for Scalp Micropigmentation

There will be an epithelial crust that forms in the days following the procedure. This crust is a combination of dried pigment and plasma that forms externally. It is important that you do not pick it. Picking the crust will result in a loss of pigment. The crust will fall off naturally within a few days. For the first few days following the procedure, the area will feel similar to that of a sunburn. A topical ointment can help soothe the area. This will soothe the area, keeping it moist and helping it heal properly.

• Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
• Be cautious around the area (such as pulling clothing over your head)
• Apply your favorite antibiotic ointment or Vaseline 3-5 times daily until the procedure area has healed. Always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertips.

cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed.
• Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing (pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue).
• Use a “total sun block” after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of
pigment color.
• Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids. Always check your product labeling, it will fade your pigment color!
