Scalp Micropigmentation Healing Process

Congratulations on your Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) at El Zorro Tattoo! As you embark on the journey to a revitalized look, it's crucial to understand the healing process for optimal results. Below is a comprehensive guide to guide you through the steps of post-SMP care.

Immediate Post-Procedure Care:

  1. Gentle Cleansing:

    • Clean the treated area gently with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser using a soft cloth. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the newly pigmented scalp.

  2. Application of Healing Ointment:

    • Apply the recommended healing ointment to the treated scalp immediately after the procedure. This aids in keeping the skin moisturized and promoting healing.

  3. Avoiding Sun Exposure:

    • Shield the treated area from direct sunlight. If you need to be outdoors, wear a hat or use sunscreen on the treated scalp.

First Week After SMP:

  1. Avoiding Water Exposure:

    • For the first week, avoid exposing the treated area to water as much as possible. Be cautious during showers, and avoid swimming or hot tubs.

  2. No Scratching or Picking:

    • Resist the urge to scratch or pick at the healing skin. Allow any scabs or dry skin to naturally fall off to prevent pigment loss or scarring.

  3. Wearing Comfortable Headwear:

    • Opt for loose-fitting hats or headwear to minimize friction and irritation on the treated scalp during the initial healing phase.

Weeks 2-4:

  1. Moisturizing Routine:

    • Continue applying the recommended moisturizer to the scalp to keep the skin hydrated. This helps maintain the vibrancy of the pigment.

  2. Limited Sun Exposure:

    • Even after the initial healing period, be mindful of sun exposure. Use sunscreen on the treated scalp if it will be exposed to sunlight.

  3. Gentle Physical Activity:

    • Avoid strenuous activities that may cause excessive sweating, as sweating can impact the healing process.

Follow-Up Appointment:

  1. Schedule Your Follow-Up:

    • Around 4-6 weeks post-procedure, schedule a follow-up appointment with us. This allows us to assess the healing progress, make any necessary adjustments, and ensure you're satisfied with the results.

If you have any concerns or questions during the healing process, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities.
