Losing one’s hair is difficult enough, and having scars from a hair transplant doesn’t make it any easier. Hair transplantation is the most effective hair loss treatment available today, and it is the closest to having your old hair back. Unfortunately, hair transplant surgical methods like FUT or FUE frequently result in a variety of side effects, including the formation of scar tissue as a result of the procedure. With the FUE process, some people have noticed that the scars appear to be white dots, according to their observations. It is vital to remember that the experience and ability of the surgeon who conducts the surgery will have a significant impact on the appearance of your scarring.
What are the many types of hair transplantation methods available?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
In FUE, hair follicles are extracted from the sides and back of the patient’s head and transplanted into the balding region of the scalp.. Each follicular transplant is extracted with the use of a micro-punch. The scarring left behind by this surgery is extremely small and spherical, measuring up to a millimeter in diameter. The punch instrument, which is used to harvest hair follicles, can leave hundreds or thousands of scars on the skin. After healing, little white patches may appear on the skin.
FUT (Follicular Unit TransplantationExtraction)
This process involves removing a strip section of the scalp from the patient, from which thousands of hair follicles will be harvested and transplanted onto the patient’s bald spot. Using sutures, the surgeon puts the wound back together once the strip has been removed. After the wound has healed, patients will generally be left with a more visible strip scar.
What methods may we use to conceal hair transplant scars?
A relatively recent treatment, scalp micropigmentation, has been shown to be beneficial in addressing the cosmetic difficulties associated with hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation is a method similar to tattooing that imitates hair follicles by depositing thousands of tiny pigment dots into the scalp’s epidermis. In recent years, scalp micropigmentation has gained popularity as a more socially acceptable and preferrable hair loss solution. Scalp pigmentation imitates the appearance of natural hair follicles while simultaneously reinforcing and densifying thinning areas of the scalp, all without the need for invasive surgery, creams, medications, or consistent maintenance.
At Scalp Designs, we have a process.
Our goal is to assist you in achieving seamless results from your hair transplant procedures by providing a SMP scar camoflage procedure that compliments FUE and FUT hair transplants. . Scalp Micropigmentation makes it possible to disguise and conceal scars with pinpoint accuracy, making it appear as if you’d never lost your hai in the first place.
To ensure best results, our scalp camoflage procedure is divided into multiple sessions, until the desired density is acquired. Usually, this process takes 2-3 sessions. By the end of the second session, a significant percentage of the visible scar tissue is much less noticeable and it begins to blend in with the surrounding hair.
