Care before the treatment

The following instructions are for users of a hairpiece / wig. Although the quality of hairpieces is very good nowadays as they allow for good skin transpiration it still has to be taken into account that this skin can flake off or be excessively traumatised. Therefor we advise treatment of the skin prior tricopigmentation. Please speak with your dermatologist in order to get your skin ready for tricopigmentation.

In general the following recommendations apply:

  • Do not fix the prosthesis with glue during a month.
  • As the client wants to keep having the hairpiece during this period, they can have it on during the day according to the indications and take it off at night.
  • When the hairpiece is not worn, a pharmacological treatment recommended by your doctor should be applied. This treatment often involves an ointment with 1% cortisone content.

After a month of following these guidelines the skin will have regenerated and we can treat the area with Tricopigmentation.
