Standard SMP Aftercare Instructions

  • Congratulations on completing your first Scalp Micro-pigmentation (SMP) treatment! We hope you're delighted with your new hairline. To ensure proper healing, follow these guidelines:

  • Apply the provided A and D ointment in the morning and night for the next two days.

  • After 48 hours, use the supplied 5PM Shadow Cleanse Soap to wash the treated area daily for optimal results.

  • Wait 72 hours before resuming light-weight exercises, avoiding intense cardio to minimize sweating and prevent the treatment from lightening.

  • Seven days post-procedure, incorporate the supplied 5PM Shadow Hydrate into your routine. Regular use between SMP treatments is crucial for hydrated skin, as dryness can complicate the process for your SMP technicians.

  • Refrain from direct, intense sunlight exposure for 28 days. Brief morning sun exposure is acceptable, but limit it to a maximum of 20 minutes per day.

  • Avoid activities causing excessive sweating for the first four days. Be mindful of hat usage, allowing the skin to breathe, especially within the initial 48 hours. If necessary, opt for a netted trucker-style snapback hat.

    These guidelines will contribute to the best results and a smooth SMP treatment process.
