So you’ve booked your scalp micropigmentation treatment and are ready for your life-changing transformation.

You may be wondering what is the best way to prepare for your scalp pigmentation treatment? We’ve got you covered! Here are the 5 things that you need to do prior to your scalp micro pigmentation treatment.

#1: Understand Your Goals

What you want the end result to look like? Taking screenshots of before and after pictures of SMP treatments you like is a good way to prepare and set the right expectation for your practitioner. Your practitioner will help walk you through this on the day of your micro scalp treatment but if you have some of these goals outlined it will make it go smooth as gravy!

#2: Stop Using Rogaine, Toppik, and other Topical Products on the Scalp

You’ll want to cease using these products 48 hours before your treatment. This includes removing hair systems if you are wearing one. This will allow your scalp to become cleaner and clearer for your scalp pigmentation practitioner to work on.

#3: Cut Your Hair

If your scalp micro pigmentation plan requires you to keep your hair short then it’s not a bad idea to cut your hair short before coming in. This will get you acclimated with the new style and saves a bit of time on treatment day.

However, we understand you’ve maybe never cut your hair before or want to do it on the same day which is no problem. Our SMP practitioners are equipped to cut your hair in the office before your treatment day.

#4: Wash and Moisturize Scalp

Using non-irritating fragrance-free wash and moisturizer days if not weeks leading up to your treatment. Wash and moisturize your scalp at least once a day leading up to treatment. Remember your scalp is a canvas and the nicer the canvas the easier it is to create a work of art!

#5: EAT

This may sound silly but many clients come in without properly eating any food or hydrating before their session. The treatment takes anywhere from 1 – 3 hours and during that time you will be sitting and to make it easier on you it’s important to have something in your system.
