SMP PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Do Your Part!
Please follow the scalp micropigmentation instructions below.
For longer appointments, please eat a meal before arriving.
Do Not take Fish Oil or Aspirin 1 week before unless prescribed by a doctor.
Do Not tan. Avoid direct sunlight to avoid burning and peeling of the skin.
Do Not drink alcohol or consume drugs 48 hours before your procedure.
Do Not wear any hair pieces the week before.

SMP Pre-care Instructions for LONG HAIR:

No hair dye 3 weeks minimum before your appointment.
Shampoo your hair the night before your appointment.

Please follow the Pre-care instructions to prepare your scalp for optimal results for SHORT HAIR/BALD/SHAVED:

Hair Preparation –
One week before your initial appointment, moisturize your scalp 3 to 4 times a day in the areas that will be pigmented. This will ensure your scalp is in the best possible condition and hydrated which will allow the pigment to be properly absorbed. If your skin is oily then do not moisturize. Too much oil in the skin is just as bad as the skin being too dry.
One week before change to a gentle, non-abrasive shampoo.
Shave your head with a razor blade 2 or 3 days before your procedure or If you use clippers choose a size #0 guard the day of your procedure. Do Not use a razor on your scalp within 24 hours of the scheduled procedure. It is critical that we see all natural hair in order to properly blend the hair follicles.
Do Not tan. Avoid direct sunlight to avoid burning and peeling of the skin.

If any of the following apply, you are not a good candidate for SMP. The discontinuation of any drug or supplement is NOT suggested or implied and any desire to do so must be discussed with your prescribing physician or medical professional. No exceptions! Please notify your artist of any change in medications or health since your last visit. Questions or concerns must be e-mailed to rebelaesthetic.info@gmail.com For the safety of your health and outcome, we will NOT perform treatments on anyone with the following contraindications. If you show up without notifying your artist of any of these, you risk losing your deposit:

SMP AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

To ensure that you get the best possible outcome from your SMP treatments we advise that you follow these recommendations.

SMP Aftercare Instructions:

No hair dye for 3 weeks after.
Redness and irritation are normal for 1 to 3 days.

A tiny wound is created in the skin when each microdot of pigment is applied. A scab heals over the wound, and eventually falls away. The scabbing process typically is 5 to 7 days, but for some it can last up to 14 days.

Do Not peel or pick at scabs. Let it fall off by itself. Do Not wet the scab to help it come off. Picking and pulling off skin that is not ready to be removed or come off will cause pigment loss and can pull out deeper tissue.

Do Not touch or rub the procedure area. Bacteria lives on the surface of your skin and can enter into your bloodstream and cause a bacterial infection. Keep It Clean!

Do Not expose the area to full pressure of the shower for at least 10 days. You do not want the water to beat on the pigmented area. The water will cause swelling and moisture and remove the scabs.

Do Not expose the procedure to direct sunlight. It can have an impact on the color and size of the replicated hair follicles.

Do Not apply styling products for at least 10 days.

Do Not use anything on your scalp that contains alcohol 10 days.

Do Not do any strenuous activity for a minimum of 10 days. You want to avoid sweating and swelling at all costs. Increased blood pressure and dilated blood vessels increases swelling and oozing. Sweat will expand your pores and this swells the tissues and allows the body to absorb more of the ink pigment. If you exercise and or sweat you can expect your results to fade significantly. Swelling and sweat fades ink!

Day 1-4
You may wear a hat outside, but it must be clean and loose-fitting. If you do wear a hat in the healing process you must allow the scalp to breathe properly so remove the hat every 30 minutes for the first 3 days.

Do Not use shampoo, water or soap.

Do Not sweat! No gym, No weight lifting, No cardio, No running.

Do Not shave the head

Day 5-6
You can take a light shower, light water pressure, and gently shampoo your scalp. Pat dry, do not rub.

You can sweat lightly. No gym, No weight lifting, No cardio, No running.

Do Not shave the head.

Day 7-9
There still may be scabs on your scalp. Apply moisturizer 2+ daily to prevent dryness and flaky skin. If you have oily skin then skip this step.

You can sweat lightly. No gym, No weight lifting, No cardio, No running.

Do Not shave the head.

Day 10+
This is the time you are probably considering shaving your head. Be careful of any scabs that might still be on your scalp. Only use an electric razor. You should wait 30 days before using a razor blade.

Note: Return to your normal regiment with the exceptions below:

Avoid direct sun exposure for 14 days.
Avoid saunas, chlorine pools, beach or salt water for 30 days.
Avoid swimming in fresh, salt, or chlorinated water for 30 days.
Aftercare Instructions (Long Term)
Do use sunscreen. Look for a water resistant, broad-spectrum coverage with an SPF of at least 30 on a daily basis to help preserve your color. The ultraviolet rays from the sun may damage the SMP pigments if no sunscreen is used over the course of many months or years. The end result would be fading and the need for a touch up.

Do Not use tanning beds. They can fade your SMP.

Infections
It is very unlikely that you will have an adverse reaction to SMP. Excessive redness, excessive swelling, purulent drainage and or pain is radiating beyond the site of the tattoo, then it can be a sign of infection.

If you experience any itching, swelling, blistering or any other complications post procedure. Please contact a medical provider first, and the call us, if you think you may have a possible infection.

-Protect yourself & your investment with proper aftercare. Better aftercare means better results!

– NEVER TOUCH YOUR FRESH TATTOO OR YOU RISK GIVING YOURSELF AN INFECTION!

– Never use Vaseline, Neosporin, or anything other than what Rebel Permanent Makeup suggests or you liable if anything goes wrong during your healing process.

– How your body heals your permanent makeup is out of the control of the technician. This is 100% your body’s job. Even when following the aftercare fading, blurring or poor retention can still happen depending on your skin, products used and lifestyle. Results are 1/4 pre-care, 1/4 how well color was implanted, 1/4 after-care, 1/4 how your body heals.

– IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW, YOU MAY RUIN THE RESULTS. IT IS UP TO THE TECHNICIAN’S DISCRETION IF SHE FEELS IT IS NO LONGER PRODUCTIVE TO DO ANY FUTURE SERVICES IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW PROPER AFTERCARE AND CAN RELEASE YOU AT ANY TIME. (To be followed for all new tattoo and touch-up sessions.)

– If you have any questions or in the rare event you suspect an infection, please email rebelaesthetic.info@gmail.com right away.
