To ensure you achieve the best possible results from your treatment, we recommend:
Before your appointment
- Avoid: Treating/dyeing hair one week prior to your treatment.
- Make sure your skin/scalp is not sunburnt.
- Wash your hair on the day of the treatment so the area is clean.
After your appointment
The treated area/hair will be damp nearest to the scalp from the use of the serums during the treatment and flushed red from the stimulation of the needling.
Day 0: The treatment area will be flushed red, your hair in the area will be slightly damp and the skin might feel taut.
Day 0 – 2: Do not wash your hair, or touch the scalp including with a hair brush.
Day 2: You may start the suggested homecare product; hair vitalizer by first showering (without using any shampoo or conditioner) make sure the area is towel dried and then massage the product in (do not rinse out)
Day 3: The minimum time to wait to wash your hair with product (ideally using Derma SR Sensitive Shampoo) is 48 hours, you may also start using a gentle hair brush (we recommend Tangle Teezer for fine hair)
Day 4: You will start noticing a dry scalp/flaking /increased dandruff while your skin is healing, this will subside after 7 days.
Day 10: Vellus hair (fine baby hair) will begin to form in the area, over the next 1-2 months these vellus hairs will fall out and be replaced with terminal hair (stronger, pigmented hair)
Instructions for the whole duration of your treatment series:
- No chemicals (hairspray, setting spray, dry shampoo, gel/wax)
- Avoid: heat styling tools near the scalp during the treatment series
- Protect from sunlight at all times
- Use home care Derma SR Hair Vitalization product once a daily, straight after your shower (dry scalp first)
Follow up sessions
We recommend a hair vitalisation professional treatment every 4-6 weeks for 4-10 sessions in total. Once the treatment cycle is complete, single follow up treatments are recommended every 6-12 months depending on the customer. The Derma SR Hair Vitalization product is recommended to use continuously even once treatment has ceased.
Derma SR Hair Vitalizer Essence (15ml), $140
Derma SR Sensitive Shampoo (200ml), $54
Even though the results have been highly successful, results are not a guarantee, if the results are not visible when you come for your third session after healing from 2 consecutive treatments (progress photos will be taken to compare), we recommend discontinuing treatment.
