Getting Rid of Scalp Scars for Men – Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
With the advancement of hair transplant surgery, many who were suffering from hair loss were eager to be treated and regain a piece of their youth and confidence.? Unfortunately, the early days of FUT harvesting of hairs involved losing a flap of skin from the back of your head and receiving the ?please hide me with long hair? transplant scar that runs from the back of one ear to the other.? But people didn?t have a choice, it was either deal with the level of baldness you have or deal with a scar that you have to cover up with longer hair on the back of your head. Then came Scalp Micropigmentation, giving post FUT transplant patients the option they needed. Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent and non-surgical solution for hair loss. Using pigment to simulate follicles, scalp micropigmentation artists can meticulously restore any area of balding with density. This includes, of course, that scar on the back of your head.
Scar tissue is one of the most difficult challenges an SMP artist tackles in his day today.? Many things have to be considered like the quality of the doctor’s stitches to minimize the scar, keloid, and the amount of time the scar has had to heal before moving forward. Due to the unpredictable nature of how scar tissue reacts to SMP, the process of covering up your FUT scar is going to take patience over multiple sessions.? FUT surgery is being phased out in favor of the more advanced FUE method which causes multiple small circular scars in the donor area that are less visible than FUT scars, but usually cover a wider area. Scalp micropigmentation is the perfect solution for either FUT or FUE, and excellent results can be achieved by the most skilled practitioners.
A master scalp micropigmentation artist can perfectly blend a scar so that it isn?t noticeable with any hairstyle, short or long. Using a very specific color theory make especially for SMP (scalp micropigmentation), we match our pigment to your hair color and Fitzpatrick scale number (a scale from 1-6 based on skin tone and eye color. 1 being very white almost albino with blonde hair, 6 being very dark-toned like Nigerians).? Our needles are also proprietary and specifically made ?microneedles? for scalp micropigmentation. Using a very conservative approach, your artist will slowly layer the scar with impressions until it is blended perfectly with the surrounding hair.
