SCAR CAMOUFLAGE

Scalp scarring is common and usually caused by accident on surgery such as hair transplants. Some people strongly dislike the look of scarring, possibly because it may be a reminder of a negative past experience, or makes it obvious to others you have had a transplant, There are few options for scar camouflage, but scalp micropigmentation is a great solution.

FUE & FUT TRANSPLANTS

Most of our clients in need of scar camouflage have usually undergone a hair transplant. There are two types of transplants FUT and FUE.

FUT (follicular unit transplantation) scars are caused by a large section of the donor area (side or back of the head where follicles are still active) being removed so they can extract the grafts to transplant them into the areas of the scalp with no hair. Due to the large amount removed, this can leave a rather sizeable linear scar in various lengths, based on the size of the strip extracted.

FUE (follicular unit extraction) is the more modern technique used today. Slightly different from FUT, instead of removing a large strip to get the grafts, they remove the grafts straight from the scalp individually. FUE then leaves numerous small circular scars in the donor area. This scarring can also be visible.

If you’ve had a hair transplant and are unhappy with the visibility of your surgical scars, scalp micropigmentation can be an excellent treatment to help conceal scars. Several scalp micropigmentation clients seek the treatment to help diminish scarring associated with prior hair transplants as these can be very visible and limit hairstyle options for the individual.

It is not guaranteed, however, when depositing the pigment into the scar, the needle helps your skin draw collagen to the surface, which could help restore health to the injured skin.
