After the procedure is over, fresh skin will develop over the top layer, which is what gives the result the most realistic appearance imaginable.

  • Try not to sweating too much.
  • Avoid picking, scratching, or itching your scalp.

The 10th day typically signifies that you have recovered enough to resume your regular routine, depending on how rapidly you recover from injuries. Your next appointment time will be set based on how quickly your healing has advanced thus far.

Similar to the prior appointment, the practitioner will advise you to have a haircut and give your head a good wash, this time with shampoo or another product that is suitable for your skin. You should be aware that overexposure to the sun may cause your scalp to itch. Additionally, after the first session, the scalp tattoo will have slightly faded, so don’t be concerned by this. This is very standard fare.
