Frequently asked questions about Micro Hair Pigmentation treatment aftercare

What does the aftercare of my MHP look like?

After Micro Hair Pigmentation treatment, pigmentation will be darker than the final result. During the healing process, you should treat gently and carefully the pigmented skin. During the first four days, do not wet the pigmentation. We strongly recommend to postpone showering, washing, swimming, sauna or otherwise. Take care not to scratch and do not expose skin to UV light (sunlight or tanning bed). Furthermore, during the first 4 days after the treatment no overexertion; no sports or other things that make you perspire. Only the special White Vaseline can be applied to the pigmentation. All this is to ensure that the pigmentation heals as quickly as possible. Here, the goal to achieve is that as much pigment as possible is retained in the skin. Inflammation or other skin problems during the healing period of the treated area are not common. After about a week, the pigmentation will suddenly seem less visible. This is due to the fact that the healing skin sometimes will not be transparent at first. This however will restore itself quickly enough, after which the pigmentation will be visible again. After a week following the treatment, you are allowed to wash the hair with a gentle shampoo.

What will the skin look like directly after the MHP treatment?

Immediately after the MHP treatment the scalp will look slightly red and irritated as if it has been sunburned. This especially applies to patients with light to very light skin. After several days, the redness will be reduced to a minimum. It is normal for irritation to last for about 2 to 3 days.

Is the treatment painful?

Some clients may experience a little discomfort or mild irritation during treatment. However, most of the customers do not experience this as problematic.

How long does the MHP treatment take?

The common duration of a first treatment is 8 hours spread over 2 consecutive days 4 weeks later. The following up treatment only occurs if the area treated has healed sufficiently. Thereafter, the 2nd treatment will be carried out in which the specialist will apply a new layer over the previously treated area. This is done to obtain even greater density. Usually 1 x small touch up after the treatment will be enough to keep the end result for many years to come.

Should a client take time off after the treatment?

You can choose whether or not you want to take time off after the treatment. The treated area will be rather red after the treatment. This may last for several days.

Are there disadvantages to MHP?

As a rule, there are no disadvantages to MHP. However, just as with a tattoo or permanent make-up it cannot be predicted beforehand how your skin will react to the pigmentation treatment. There is always a slight possibility that the introduced pigments encapsulate unevenly especially, if you do not follow the aftercare instructions thoroughly. This can of course be corrected during subsequent treatment but is nevertheless undesirable. Therefore, it is extremely important that you follow the instructions for aftercare ensuring that the maximum amount of pigment will remain in the skin. Use of certain medications can also cause dissolution of pigment.

Can I do an allergy test piece treatment?

If you have a history of allergic reactions or if you are unsure whether this treatment is right for you, we would recommend doing a test treatment.

Are there any contradictions to MHP?

Unless you are allergic to the dyes, there are no indications against the MHP treatment. Of course, there are certain medications that can negatively influence the pigments insertion into the skin as for example the blood thinners. It is also strongly recommended to not drink any alcohol or use drugs the day before treatment and to get a full night’s sleep. You are also required to report all use of medications before starting the treatment. In case if you have used noticeable amounts of alcohol or drugs the day before treatment, our specialists reserve the right to discontinue the treatment immediately. In this event, the situation must be treated as a late cancellation and you can be charged with the amount that has to be paid in case of a late cancellation.

What precautions should I take for my MHP treatment?

You can positively influence the course and outcome of the treatment by following these precautions. It’s allowed to take 1000 mg paracetamol on the day before the treatment to aid pain relief. If you are taking other medications or supplements you need to report this well in advance of the first treatment in case of any contraindications. It is important that you try and get enough sleep the night before the treatment so that you are fully rested. Alcohol and drugs are definitely not recommended as of 24 hours before treatment starts. Make sure to not schedule any events on the day of the appointment or make any other arrangements where it is important for you to look your best. The treated area will be red and irritated.

What happens after the appointment for treatment is set up?

It’s important that you are on time on the day of treatment. If you arrive later this can result in a shortened treatment time. Also you need to have any and all papers filled out, after which the treatment will begin. First we discuss the expectations and possibilities. Then draw the new hair line in full agreement with a client. We will then discuss the preferred colour. Usually the basic pigmentation is done with a slightly lighter tone than your hair because it gives a better end result. At the end of the treatment client decides whether he or she likes the results and requests adjustments if needed. Finally we inform a client about aftercare for optimal result.
