The precare is customized for each client. Your provider will give you personalized pre-care instructions after the consultation if needed, to moisturize and prep the scalp for the first session. 


Day 0-5 

  • Avoid intense exercise or anything that would cause you to sweat heavily. 
  • For the first 3 days do not let your scalp get wet at all. After that keep the area clean by lightly rising with water or wet towel and blotting dry. Do NOT soak the scalp.
  • Do NOT touch your scalp with your hands. If you need to touch, wash your hands thoroughly first. 
  • Stay hydrated! Dehydration can lead to dry skin which can impede the healing process. 
  • Avoid UV light from the sun or tanning beds for 30 days. Cover the treated area with a loosely fitting hat when going outside. 
  • Do NOT scrub or shampoo the scalp. 
  • Do NOT swim in pools, lakes or any body of water for at least 30 days. Chlorine and salt can ruin the pigmentation, while bodies of water can increase your risk of infection. 
  • You will notice your micropigmentation starting to fade. This is a normal part of the healing process. 

If you would need to lightly shave or cut your hair do so after about day 4 and before any scabs start forming – ask your provider if it is okay.  Remember, everyone heals and peels on a different schedule. What may be day 5 for you may be day 8 for someone else. Read the aftercare instructions and decide which stage of the healing process you are in.

Day 6-10

Continue the aftercare from week 1 and consider the following:

  • Your scalp may begin to peel. Do NOT scratch or pick the scabs.
  • Use a moisturizer as suggested by your provider. 
  • You may use an unscented, alcohol-free shampoo if recommended by your provider. 
  • Avoid using self-tanners or any other products not suggested to you by your provider until the scalp is completely healed. 
  • Continue to avoid exfoliants or other harsh washing detergents on your scalp.
  • -You can start lightly exercising but do not sweat excessively. 

After Day 10-14

  • Your scalp should be almost healed and you can return to your normal routine! Contact your provider to schedule your next session or inquire about the healing process. 

Micropigmentation is a multi-session process normally requiring 2-3 sessions. Results cannot be determined until your final touch-up application is completed and healed.
