Hair Transplants, Scars and SMP

Hair Transplant can cause scars at the back of the scalp. There are two major modes of hair transplant. One is the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known as the strip method and the second is the comparatively newer method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both these methods can cause noticeable scars on the scalp.

As stated by Scalp Micro PT, scars caused by these hair transplant techniques can be effectively covered with the help of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). SMP is a tattooing based method which is most commonly used to hide scars on the scalp. Hair transplant may not produce the desired results and people feel stranded, unable to cut their hair due to visible scars and unable to grow enough hair to hide the scars. Living with visible scars in the scalp can be very difficult. It can cause anxiety and self esteem issues in many people. By using SMP you can camouflage as much as ninety percent of your scars.

SMP can also be used in conjunction with hair transplant. By using SMP with hair transplant less donor hair is required and the process becomes easier. SMP also takes care of any scarring caused due to transplantation of hair. SMP can be used to hide scars even when a long time has passed since hair transplant. To hide the scars, SMP process involves implanting of small pigment deposits to replicate hair follicles or strands.

Apart from hiding scars caused by hair transplant, SMP can also be used to give an illusion of higher density of hair. This is of great help for people with insufficient donor hair. SMP is non-invasive and provides an easy option to have a look of fuller hair. A successful use of SMP will give the look of a buzz cut. The scars tissue can be complex and may be located on an uneven area of the scalp. The texture of the scar tissue is an important factor to consider while performing SMP. So an experienced and well trained artist is required for effectively covering the scars.
