Scars from hair transplants can be covered by scalp micropigmentation

Cosmetic tattoos such as scalp micropigmentation (SMP) conceal hair and scalp deformities. Cosmetic deformities of the scalp can be caused by hair restoration surgery or dermatologic diseases such as scarring alopecia or genetic alopecia. As well as concealing scars from neurosurgery or head trauma, SMP can also cover up scars that result from head trauma.

Scars from hair transplants

Hair loss doesn’t discriminate based on age, race, or color. Self-esteem and self-confidence are two of the most common problems affected individuals experience. There are several methods available for covering thinning or balding areas. Many of these individuals turn to hair transplantation as a means of concealing their condition. 

During a hair transplant, hair is moved from areas of the scalp where it is still growing to areas where it has stopped growing. The individuals who have removed hair in this way eventually develop unsightly scarring. As a result of their scars, these individuals are anxious and distressed. They begin looking for ways to make the scar less noticeable in order to conceal it. It is possible to achieve this through micropigmentation.

Additionally, SMP can conceal scars from hair transplants, as well as hair and scalp deformities. Scarring can vary depending on whether the follicular units are extracted or transplanted. Scar concealment techniques vary depending on the type of scar and its challenges.

The technique

Pigments of various hues are injected into the upper dermis by tattoo needles. Colors of skin and hair, hair volume, scar thickness, and pigment properties influence how each treatment area should be treated. Scalp micropigmentation specialists determine the depth of the needle based on the thickness of the skin at the point of insertion. Before reaching the upper dermis, the needle must penetrate the epidermis.
