Hair transplants are quite common these days as more and more people are benefiting from these surgical procedures. The hair once they grow out are permanent and do not undergo further loss. There are numerous transplant options that one can benefit from. Usually the main difference between them is the method of follicle extraction. Based on the hair transplant technique used, certain scars are left. In some cases, prominent scars can be left. To counter them, Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is an ideal scar revision procedure. Dubai Hair Club offers world’s best hair transplant with assured results. If you are looking for no scar hair restoration then contact the clinic today and book a free consultation.
Reason behind bad scars
Before discussing SMP for post hair transplant scars, let’s understand what causes scarring. Scars are a natural part of any surgical procedure, including hair transplantation. Small scars are usually covered by the hair. However, at times, these scars can take a turn for the worse and can become very prominent. These can be a result of not a good job by the surgeon or due to poor healing. It is not very common but the issue does exist. At times people look to keep very short hair and the normal scars become quite obvious in that case as well.
Types of scars
The two most common types of hair transplant scars are:
- Linear scars resulting from Strip Method Transplant (FUT)
- Tiny pinhole scars caused by a FUE Hair Transplantation.
The former are more prominent due to their big nature and are more likely to become prominent in case the wound does not heal properly.
What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation?
It is a process in which small spots of pigmentation are left on the skin where there is no hair. The procedure creates an illusion of hair with a small sharp haircut. It is used to cover bald patches as well as scars on the scalp. Some people actually get micro-pigmentation done on their scalp when they have large areas to cover, while others get it only to cover small surgical scars.
How does it help hair transplant scars?
The scars resulting from surgical hair restoration can at times become quite prominent. The micropigmentation treatment makes small marks on the skin which appear like small hair. The scar can be carefully covered with these marks. These are especially useful when it comes to linear scars which are generally most prominent. The micropigmentation can also help in case of light balding or progressive hair loss after a hair transplant as the marks appear hair like and can create an illusion of a buzz cut.
Why SMP is not an ideal solution?
If you want to correct a bad scar left by the hair transplant or simply want to cover some bald patches, SMP may be the answer to your worries. But there is a downside of SMP as well, and that is you cannot enjoy the perks of long hair or real feel. If you want natural hair, a hair transplant surgery for scar revision may be worth trying.
