BEFORE AND AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS

At Replique we supply amazing hair fall treatments and services, we genuinely care about our clients and want the best long term baldness cures for them, but much of the success of the hair loss solution is actually out of our hands - it's the After Care that makes a huge difference in how well the treatment lasts. Below are some tips for our clients to read and consider before and after their treatments.

BEFORE CARE:

SMP is a form of cosmetic tattooing and as such it is important that the scalp is clean and healthy.

If you are worried about any skin conditions, or if you are on medications, you should discuss the treatment with your doctor prior to the treatment to ensure no adverse reactions.

If you use any type of hair fibre or hair product, please remove it prior to your appointment to avoid infection.

 

We gradually build your colour with several sessions. To achieve a thick density and realistic look, we recommend layering the SMP over several sessions. SMP is not designed to be completed in simply one or two hours unless it is for a very small area.

We use a pigment that is black based (in varying percentages to get a correct tone), although we use a black pigment, the colour may change if a client is on specific medications, diet or doesn't adhere to adequate After Care. 

If you are concerned about allergies or adverse reactions, we can do a Patch Test, this is $100 and only takes a few minutes. We recommend doing this several days prior to the treatment to fully assess if you will have adverse reactions.

AFTER CARE:

The SMP is only 0.5mm into the epidermis, it is very light and will appear as red, like slight sunburn, for a few hours after each treatment. it is a good idea to bring in a new or clean hat or cap for the treatment, especially if you are having a full day treatment, so you can wear the hat if you go for lunch. 

You wont need any kind of antiseptic cream like Bepanthum or moisturiser during the After Care period, just keep the scalp clean and sweat free.

We recommend avoiding sweating through the scalp for 4 to 10 days after each session, to avoid adverse reactions. 

We recommend not exposing the SMP to salt water or chlorinated water for up to 30 days after the treatment.

We recommend avoiding standing directly under the shower jet for 7 days after each treatment, but you can splash warm water on the scalp and allow to dry naturally.

Please use a clean or new pillowcase to avoid Infection.

If you purchase the Intro Package, you will receive 4 treatments to be used in the first 12 months of the initial treatment. This allows for comprehensive density. If you require more than the 4 treatments, then we charge an hourly rate of $350.

SMP can be quite intensive to the skin, in the majority of cases the skin will be red for a few hours and then settle down. Some of our clients have noticed that their skin has become waxy or flakey. This may remove some of the SMP, leaving the area slightly patchy. This can be alleviated by additional "touch up" session where we fill in the areas of SMP that has lightened in density.

If you have any concerns before or after your SMP treatment, please message or call 0498 988 131 as we are here to help.

BEFORE CARE:

Replique hairpieces are bonded to the scalp using Walkers and Pro Hair Labs adhesives, the World's leading hair piece adhesive suppliers.

If you are worried about any skin conditions, or if you are on medications, you should discuss the treatment with your doctor prior to the treatment to ensure no adverse reactions.

If you use any type of hair fibre or hair product, please remove it prior to your appointment to avoid infection.

If you are concerned about allergies or adverse reactions, we can do a Patch Test, this only takes a few minutes. We recommend doing this several days prior to the treatment to fully assess if you will have adverse reactions.

The hairpieces are bonded the scalp for up to several weeks. We will trim/clipper/shave any hair in the male pattern baldness area prior to placing the adhesive and hairpiece.

 

In our experience the adhesive and hairpiece does not effect the growth of the biological hair beneath the hairpiece but we hold no claim that each individual client's biological hair will not be effected by the bond and hair piece. 

 

AFTER CARE:

We recommend not sweating or washing the hairpiece in a shower for 24 hours after the bond to ensure maximum hold

We supply a wide tooth comb that is to be used to ensure gentle handling of the hair.

Our Thin Skin hairpieces are designed to last approximately 12 to 20 weeks. Most of our clients work with our team to get 6 to 12 months out of their hairpieces, by recommending a low maintenance haircut and a hair care regime that is gentle.

The hairpieces are 100% human (except for grey) and as such the hair can fade one or two tones, but it can be recoloured.

If you are ordering an Ultra Thin Skin please note that these may only last 4 to 8 weeks. We need at least 8 hours for the adhseive removal on an Ultra Thin Skin as it needs to soak in a solvent, most customers who purchase Ultra Thin Skin units will alternate between two units. 

We recommend regular rebonding, either in our clinic or at home to ensure the adhesive doesn't degrade and form a residue in the hair.

Please note that our hairdressers are very experienced at cutting hairpieces, and work with our clients closely to achieve an amazing haircut. it is vital that you discuss length and style with the hairdresser and communicate with them as the hair is being cut to ensure the correct length. We do not refund hairpieces because a client is dissatisfied with a haircut. 

The hairpieces are a medium density, we don't stock light or heavy density hairpieces.prior to cutting the hairpiece into the template we will ask you to review the density and hairline. Once the hairpiece or hair is cut we are unable to offer any refunds as it has been customised and therefore cant be re-sold. Once the hairpiece and hair is cut  and paid for, the hairpiece is deemed to belong to the client and is the clients responsibility.  

If you have any concerns before or after your Hair Piece treatment, please message or call 0498 988 131 as we are here to help.
