Normal activities may be resumed immediately following the procedure. There will be slight tenderness, swelling and redness to the treated area which will generally subside within 24 hours.
The intensity of the colour may appear darker immediately following the procedure. This will reduce and soften during the healing process to deliver a more subtle, natural look.
The healing duration will take approximately 5 – 10 days following each treatment. During the first 5 days the treated area will need to be kept dry. Some fine crusting may occur which will naturally flake away during the healing period. It is crucial to the final results of the medical enhancement that the aftercare guidelines provided are adhered to for sufficient healing and to avoid any post treatment complications.
Full aftercare instructions will be provided both verbally and in hard copy following the procedure.
The longevity of scalp micro-pigmentation is variable from person to person based upon factors such as skin type, age and general lifestyle. Generally results will last from 4 – 6 years. During this period the enhancement will begin to slowly soften and lighten, at which point a touch-up may be required by means of a colour-boost to freshen the look and style.
