One of the most common applications of scalp micropigmentation techniques is the concealment of scars caused by hair transplant surgery.
Scalp scarring is a sensitive subject – no matter your social surrounding or community. Scarring, particularly when it’s located on the scalp, is extremely visual and also exceedingly difficult to disguise in an everyday world. Yet it’s not just about the visual scar – it also harbours deep routed wounds to the psychological well-being of the sufferer.
It goes without saying that scarring can be caused by a multitude of different reasons but a predominant one is often the result of hair transplant surgery. In days gone by, prior to technological leaps in the industry, hair plugs were commonplace. It was a process where strips of hair were taken from more abundant zones and then literally transplanted onto the donor sites where hair was needed. However, unfortunately hair loss is often an ongoing process which means that over time, the scarring resulting from surgery becomes more visible. Thankfully, hair transplants have evolved and new techniques come with less prominent scarring, yet the process of hair thinning hasn’t evolved. The result is that albeit the scarring is less pronounced, it’s not unusual for patients to discover that they are still the victims of visible scarring.
The solution – Scalp Micropigmentation
Scalp Micropigmentation is a series of treatments that use a technique that’s similar to tattooing. It works in the zones where hair loss has occurred using natural pigments at the dermal level, including the sites where scarring is most prominent. Effective on even the most aggressive of scarring or burning resulting from surgery it’s a permanent solution to the damaging effects that medical intervention can produce. The added advantage to SMP over surgery is that the risks are minimal, provided that you adhere to using a professional provider. Treatment is relatively rapid, spanning a period of three to four weeks and is also, albeit slightly uncomfortable, pain-free. See the results of scar camouflage treatments in our gallery.
It’s important to note that for a more effective treatment scarring must be, at minimum, at least six months old and that each process is detailed and bespoke to the client. An independent assessment is required in accordance with skin colour and scar severity. For a free and independent assessment in accordance with your own personal needs, contact us here today.
