Can I Drink Alcohol after Scalp Micropigmentation?
Your guide to Scalp Micropigmentation aftercare
Scalp Micropigmentation replicates the natural appearance of real hair follicles by depositing pigment into the skin with a micro needle.
We ask you not to consume any alcohol or blood thinners 48h before and 24h after the treatment. , Also caffeine and stimulants should also be avoided for 4 hours as they can stimulate the blood flow.
After the treatment just no alcohol for 24 h but you can have your coffee!
Drinking alcohol after scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is generally allowed, but it's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by El. While alcohol itself may not have a direct negative impact on the SMP procedure, excessive alcohol consumption can affect your body's healing process and potentially compromise the final outcome of the treatment.
Alcohol can act as a blood thinner, which may increase the risk of bleeding and interfere with the healing of the micropigmented areas. It can also cause dehydration, which is generally not recommended during the healing phase. Additionally, alcohol can affect your immune system and overall health, potentially slowing down the healing process.
To ensure the best results and minimize any potential complications, it's advisable to abstain from consuming alcohol, particularly in excess, during the initial healing period following scalp micropigmentation. This period usually lasts for a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the individual and the specific instructions given by your SMP practitioner.
Always consult with El for specific post-treatment care guidelines and recommendations. She will provide you with the most accurate information based on your unique situation and the specifics of your SMP procedure.
