Before Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), or trichopigmentation, is a simple skin procedure with minimal downtime or recovery. There are certain steps that have to be taken by a person receiving this treatment in order to ascertain that the procedure is a success as well as minimize any possible complications from the procedure.

Below are some simple instructions you need to follow before undergoing an SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation) procedure.

New Skin Condition:

You need to inform our doctors if you have any new skin conditions since your initial consultation. The SMP treatment may only be performed on healthy skin:

  • No dermatitis, folliculitis or skin inflammation
  • No scalp psoriasis
  • No skin cancers or non-healing ulcers

Topical Treatments:

  • Avoid minoxidil for 7 days prior to the treatment and 7 days post-treatment


  • For patients wishing to have a shaved effect, please shave scalp hair the day before SMP


  • You should take a shower before your SMP procedure and wash your scalp with regular shampoo only and avoid using conditioner.
