Scalp Micropigmentation: Can It Conceal Hair Transplant Scars

Scalp Micropigmentation: Can It Conceal Hair Transplant Scars

The procedure involves the transplantation of hair follicles from one side of the body, where the hair is growing naturally (the donor site), to the other side, where the hair is thin or non-existent (the recipient site).

Hair transplant surgery can be divided into two types:

  • FUT (follicle unit transplantation)
  • FUE (follicle unit excision)

Follicle Unit Transplantation:

FUT involves the surgeon removing a strip of scalp that is 3-4 inches in length from the area where the hair is still growing (the donor area). Several hundred to thousands of grafts are then cut from this strip. After implantation, these small grafts are inserted into the tiny slits on the scalp where hair has stopped growing (the recipient site). As a result of this surgery, a linear scar is left on that area after the surgeon uses a surgical blade for transplantation. There is a more obvious scar after this surgery than after FUE. Using advanced surgical techniques, the scar for this procedure can be reduced to only 1mm in thickness. If your hair is long, your scar will hide behind your hair, but if your hair is short, this scar will become visible and a linear line without hair will be visible.

Follicle Unit Excision:

In FUE, the hair is removed from the donor area in the form of round patches. Transplanting these hair follicles to the recipient side follows. Where the transplanted hair follicles are placed on the back of your head, they leave black dots like scars. Round patches instead of linear scars are easier to conceal since they are less obvious. These scars will also be visible for those who like a short haircut.

Thus, people choose Scalp Micropigmentation after undergoing hair transplant surgery. It allows you to keep that short hair look without revealing any signs of hair transplant surgery. You will appear to have short hair and fully conceal the scars from your hair transplant surgery.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Hair loss can be treated by scalp micropigmentation without surgery. The tattoo thickens a thin hairline. A bald person’s scalp is tattooed with microneedles during this treatment. The bald head appears fully shaved or buzz cut. Dermal pigments are applied.

When Scalp Micropigmentation is performed, pigments are injected on the upper layer of scar tissue to give the illusion of hair follicles. In order to fill in the scar, the physician adds replicated follicles. To give it a more natural look, he does the same to the nearby areas where the hair is thin. In this way, the scar will appear more even and natural. Three sessions are required for scalp micropigmentation Austin. We create the main hairline in the first session. Afterwards, I shape the hair as needed. A final touch is done in the third session and the whole scar is covered up, giving you the desired natural appearance.
