Hair Transplant Scar Concealment & Density

It is common for hair transplants sometimes to leave scars. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and plug scars are perfectly suitable to be camouflaged using Scalp Micropigmentation. SMP scar camouflage is done by depositing microdots of pigment in and around the scarred area to replicate to hair follicles and camouflage the scar. Another positive to SMP Scar camouflage procedure is that the repetitive action of piercing the injured skin with a needle helps to produce collagen and can restore some health to the injured area.

Often, hair coverage post transplant, can be thinner than desired – particularly in areas such as the crown, where it is harder for transplanted hair to be accepted. Thinning where the transplanted hair has been extracted from is also very common. SMP is a fantastic complimentary procedure to enhance a hair transplant. It gives the illusion of thicker hair and will greatly improve the results.

We advise waiting a minimum of 6 months post transplant before undergoing SMP.

Scars & Burns

Scar camouflage is not only for hair transplant scars but is also good for camouflaging scars caused by accidents such as burns to the scalp or other medical procedures. The depth and severity of the burn and current skin condition will dictate whether you are suitable for treatment.

Scar camouflage for accident or medical procedures is exactly the same as concealing hair transplant scars, the pigment is implanted into the injured skin to conceal the scarring in amongst the existing hair follicles. Once the replicated follicles are deposited the scar should be almost complete camouflaged, this is called scalp micropigmentation.
