SMP For Scarring
Understanding Hair Loss
Causes, Treatments, and Limitations
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) can help you conceal scars left behind after a hair transplant treatment or an accident so that the final appearance blends in seamlessly with the surrounding hair.
Hair transplants are typically the most severe kind of hair repair considered by people suffering from hair loss. They are regarded as severe due to the invasive nature of the surgical treatment and the high cost associated with them.
Hair provides pride and confidence for us. We make day-to-day efforts to keep it in good condition since it is an important part of our overall look. It can be stunning when hair begins to shed in unusual quantities, and you notice a change in your hairline or scalp. Although the reasons for hair loss can often be detected by a medical professional, its treatments are regularly limited and not always efficient.
In hair transplant, there are two common approaches: Follicular System Transplantation (FUT), which includes the removal of a 6-10 inch strip of scalp where hair growth is plentiful and strong; and Follicular System Extraction (FUE), in which the cosmetic surgeon will shave the back of the patient’s head before beginning to pull out donor hair follicles one at a time.
An Alternative to Hair Transplant Surgery
Improving Confidence with Lasting Results
SMP will create the look of natural hair follicles by implanting natural black ink into the scalp. SMP outcomes can last approximately three to five years before they need to be retouched. The treatment is relatively painless and results in a natural-looking outcome that will improve self-confidence.
If you choose a shorter hairstyle, SMP will help develop the appearance of hair follicles at the back of the head in cases where there are surgical scars. SMP supplies the appearance of complete hair for those with longer hair. Subsequently, the scar won’t be visible because its bareness will be covered up.
The scar tissue can be rather thick and will not react to pigments the same way a typical scalp would. For normal treatments, you can expect three to four sessions lasting anywhere from one to six hours. Extra sessions might be necessary for surgical scar cases as we assess how the location has responded to the treatment.
In order to ensure that the injuries are completely healed both internally and externally, the FUT/FUE scar cover with SMP can only be performed at least 8 to 12 months after the surgery.
