People who struggle with hair loss, hair shedding, hair thinning or balding know the horror of going out in public without some kind of hair cover. It could be a cap during summer, a bandana when you want to show your hair, hair pieces for formal events, and wigs when the problem gets absolutely out of hand.
Luckily, scalp micropigmentation can make all your hair problems magically disappear. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on our page offer more than hope; they’re a window into a more fulfilling life.
All you need to do is call in and book an appointment. But wait! If you want to make the most of this treatment, here are five things you should do before coming in.
Understand your goals
Even though clients have never walked away from our clinic disappointed, we still recommend that you do some prep.
It’s important to know your expectations from the treatment and evaluate them. Make sure you don’t have irrational expectations, as you’ll just be disappointed in that case.
For instance, expecting scalp micropigmentation to boost hair growth, add length, or improve hair quality will dishearten you. The treatment will only make your scalp look fuller and denser.
Stop using topical products
Before you walk in for your appointment, it’s important you follow a few precautionary measures.
Avoid using any moisturizers or other topical products at least 48 hours before your treatment. This is essential so your scalp is cleansed before treatment and makes it easier for the practitioner to work on it.
Cut your hair
During your consultation, you’ll be told what hairstyles will suit your hair post-treatment. If the professional tells you that short hair makes most sense (it also helps with treatment), it’s best to cut your hair before coming in. This not only saves time, but also helps you get used to the new hair length.
Wash your scalp
It’s important that you wash your scalp thoroughly before the treatment. This is even more important for the post-treatment period, because you won’t be allowed to wash your scalp for a few days. It’s best to schedule your wash day exactly one day before the treatment or as close to the appointment as possible.
Make sure you eat beforehand
Before skipping past this point, take a look at the time duration of the treatment. It can take up to a few hours and it won’t be possible to stop for food breaks in between.
So it’s best if you’re well-fed and hydrated throughout.
