There are several reasons why scars may occur on your scalp. Maybe you have undergone a hair transplant, an injury to your head, or experienced trauma to your skull, resulting in surgery.
Scars on a person’s head can have equally as much damage to their self-esteem as hair loss, therefore wanting to conceal the scarring.
Two types of hair transplant procedures would ultimately result in unwanted scars. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) will leave a strip across the back or side of the head and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) will leave small circular scars dotted across the head.
Scalp micropigmentation (also known as SMP or scalp tattoo) is the perfect treatment to camouflage the area.
A natural pigment is applied onto the scar tissue and will be blended in with the shaved look. To effectively blend with the surrounding hair, the treatment area will extend beyond the scar tissue, potentially 1-2cm above and below the scarred area. The needle used is small enough to replicate a single hair follicle, enabling us to create a full head of thicker-looking hair.
