Covering Up Hair Transplant Scars with Scalp Micropigmentation

Using scalp micropigmentation scar coverage techniques, a scar can be flattened or diminished in appearance.

If you have a scar from an injury, surgery or a hair transplant, we have the techniques available to reduce its size and shape and/or camouflage it into the hairline to reduce its appearance up to 100%. SMC can flatten scars and/or reduce their appearance; however, it is imperative to understand what scars are and how they can be flattened.

How does a scar form?

In order to repair or replace lost or damaged skin, the body produces scars. Fibrous tissue is usually found in scars. A scar can form for a variety of reasons, including infection, surgery, injury, or inflammation of tissue. 

There are many types of scars. They may be flat, lumpy, sunken, colored, painful, or itchy, and they may appear anywhere on the body. A scar’s final appearance depends on many factors, including the type of skin and location on the body, the direction of the wound, the type of injury, the age of the person with the scar, and nutrition.

You can get a full head of hair with a hair transplant if you don’t want to go bald. Occasionally, you may need to cover up scars on your head.

Micropigmentation on the scalp can be very helpful in this scenario. Scalp micropigmentation looks like tiny tattoos on your head, strategically placed to resemble natural hair growth. Scalp micropigmentation can cover up visible scars left over after a hair transplant that you are not happy with.

The top of the head or back of the neck usually scars after a hair transplant of any kind. Scarring can ruin the appearance of a natural head of hair for those who wish for it to look natural.

How Scar Coverage Works

Micropigmentation of the scalp that looks like natural hair is required for scar coverage. In this process, existing follicles are replicated, so the scars appear to have hair growing out of them. Scars will appear in small areas after a hair transplant. It is possible to cover up these scars with micropigmentation techniques that reduce the linear appearance of the scar caused by the transplant process.

The look of white scar tissue can be achieved with scalp micropigmentation over several sessions. To make scalp micropigmentation appear like normal hair, it takes time and patience. Using a variety of techniques, a good technician will create a natural hairline and provide depth to the scar cover up. The patient must undergo several sessions to ensure that all scars have been properly covered up, and that scalp micropigmentation is successful in hiding visible scars they do not wish to be noticed.
