After getting scalp permanent makeup services, it's important to take proper care of the treated area to ensure the best possible results. Here are some aftercare instructions to follow:
Keep the area clean and dry: For the first 24-48 hours, avoid getting the treated area wet. This includes avoiding swimming, sweating, or washing the scalp with water. After that, gently wash the area with a mild, unscented cleanser and water twice a day.
Avoid picking or scratching: It's important not to pick or scratch the treated area as it can cause scarring or infection. Let the scabs fall off naturally, and don't apply any hair products to the area until the scabs have healed completely.
Avoid exposure to sunlight: Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least two weeks after the treatment. Wear a hat to protect your scalp from the sun.
Avoid strenuous activities: For the first week after the treatment, avoid strenuous exercise, sauna, or steam rooms, as the heat and sweat can affect the healing process.
Apply the provided aftercare cream: Your permanent makeup technician may provide an aftercare cream or ointment to apply to the treated area. Use this as directed to keep the area moisturized and promote healing.
Attend the follow-up appointment: Scalp permanent makeup typically requires a touch-up appointment 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment. Attend this appointment to ensure the best possible results and to address any concerns you may have.
Following these aftercare instructions will help ensure that your scalp permanent makeup heals properly and looks its best. If you experience any unusual swelling, redness, or pain, contact your technician or a healthcare professional immediately.
