Types of Hair Transplant Scars Scalp Micropigmentation Can Fix

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

SMP can be a perfect solution for hiding hair transplant scars. Different types of transplants can leave scars, but luckily, scalp micropigmentation has a solution.

FUE & FUT Scar

Scarring is natural when someone undergoes a surgical procedure. This is true of hair transplants. In Some cases, scarring is more obvious and affects one’s self-esteem and personality.

SNP Scar

Since this procedure involves extracting a strip of skin or a large section of hair follicles on the scalp, it is known as a strip method. During the procedure, a surgeon makes a horizontal incision on the back and side of the head. The strip is usually 20cm long. The surgeon then divides the strip into smaller grafts with each having 1-6 healthy hair follicles.

The procedure results in a strip scar that appears as a result of extraction of the skin. Any hair loss hereafter results in a wider scar.

Scalp micropigmentation can be extremely useful as a camouflage technique that applies pigment to the HT scar tissue as well as the surrounding skin in order to hide it.

FUE Scar

During SMP, the practitioner matches the pigment with the skin color, so there is no visible evidence. It may take 2-3 sessions for the practitioner to fix FUE scar, depending on the gravity of the transplant scar.

Linear Scars

SMP blends linear scars into the surrounding hair to create a uniform appearance and an illusion of fullness. SMP adds density to the scar site, thus drawing attention away from the scar.

Another way to hide scalp scars is to recontour the hairline, as scars become more noticeable with receding hairlines. SMP can be used to shift the hairline slightly, with a goal to minimize scar visibility and frame the face.

Another type of scars that SMP can hide are keloids, which is a form of raised scar tissue. SMP can be used to blend keloid scars with the scalp.

Why SMP for Hair Transplant Scars?

The benefits of SMP for hair transplant scars are aplenty. As an SMP professional, you can help clients overcome the taboo associated with transplant scars.

Since SMP is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure, it is one of the most effective in hiding scalp scars without using stitches, scalpels. The procedure involves injecting pigment deposits into the scalp for faster recovery, low maintenance, and minimal downtime.

The procedure creates natural-looking results that can make scars literally invisible. Besides, SMP creates an undetectable illusion of real hair growth. However, the quality of products used matters a lot in scalp micropigmentation.

Unless you have the best quality pigments and tools available, you cannot create the results clients expect from you. When you dream of restoring their self-esteem and confidence, invest in top-quality products that promise to create natural-looking realistic results, giving them freedom from scars.

DermMicro has some of the best-quality SMP tools available. Choose DM SMP pigments for long-lasting results that do not migrate, blur, or get discolored.
