Using SMP for Scar Repair

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

SMP is a hair restoration option. The procedure is non-surgical and works well for both men and women with advanced hair loss, thinning hair, scars, pattern baldness, and a receding hairline. People that have undergone a transplant previously might also need SMP for scar repair.

Does SMP Work for Scars?

When you undergo a FUT hair transplant, there is a likelihood of a linear scar. If you choose follicular unit extraction, there is a chance of visible white dots. Scars look bad and unsightly. Luckily, SMP works for scar repair and blends scars with surrounding hair to create a natural look. While scalp micropigmentation works well in covering all types of scars, you may still want to look for an alternative. DermMicro has come up with an innovative solution in the form of scar pigment to camouflage tough scars. This specialized pigment is tough on the toughest scars and keeps them covered for a lifetime. The scar pigment is tough to remove and stays there forever.

Repairing Scars

If you are looking for an option to repair scars and spots, top SMP professionals use spot remover to undo a previously done bad SMP.

Ideally, scar tissue behaves slightly differently from a normal skin tissue. They do not easily accept pigment. But scar pigment is formulated to stay on scars without fading. The best-quality HD pigments may not be as effective on covering scars as the specially formulated scar pigment.

Scar camouflage is performed using permanent scar pigments that are gently tattooed into the skin. SMP for scars is particularly effective in disguising light-colored scars of all sorts.

Tiny dots of colored pigment are deposited using a specially designed SMP pen that safely and securely holds a microneedle, which moves up and down to implant ink into the skin. The goal of the treatment is to cover scars by creating a natural effect with scar pigment. The scalp artist tries to match the ink with the skin tone so that the treatment looks natural and produces realistic looking results. an expert SMP practitioner is well-versed in creating tiny natural details, including skin texture and freckles during the scar camouflage treatment.

Although it is a non-invasive procedure, you may experience slight skin irritation. There are scalp numbing creams available to numb the area before the treatment.

People with a raised scar after a previous SMP or surgery may first discuss their keloiding problems with the scalp technician to see if they are the right candidates for the treatment.

Factors that affect results of scar camouflage

  • Medication
  • Smoking and alcohol
  • Natural skin tones
  • Skin characteristics
  • Exposure to sun
  • Individual healing ability
  • PH balance of the skin
  • Illness

All in all, for clients with scar problems, it is better to use scar pigment as a solution for scar camouflage. It is a proven way to cover or hide transplant, surgery, or injury scars.
