Hair transplants require 3-4 sessions and it usually takes several months for each transplant to fully heal. These sessions leave you with scars in some areas of your head and it’s part of the process.
Yes, there are different types of treatment to cover those scars but Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is one of the best options for short or shaven hair.
Using SMP to Conceal Hair Transplant Scars
The treatment involves replicating hair follicles inside and outside the scar to cover areas where there are gaps in the hair. It’s a procedure similar to microblading which creates enhanced eyebrows.
Proper blending and concealment are applied to the scar using a specially designed device similar to the ones used for tattoos. The pigment is not driven as deeply, its deposited near the surface of the skin. SMP is less painful than a real tattoo and other invasive operations like hair transplants.
SMP is usually carried out in 3 stages, the time spent at the clinic visits depends on the area to cover. However the visual effect is immediate and you will see the difference even after 1 session.
Who will Benefit from SMP?
Scars on the scalp and other small imperfections always have slower hair growth. SMP treatment is beneficial for people experiencing all forms of hair loss:
- Thinning Hair
- Male and female pattern baldness
Yes, SMP has been proven to be effective but there are some things you need to keep in mind to get the best results for your scalp & how the procedure works.
- The whole treatment takes 3 sessions and they’re scheduled a few weeks apart.
- It’s best to take a shower first before the treatment. You won’t be able to wash your scalp for 4 days after each session.
- In the weeks between the treatment, avoid exposing your scalp to direct sunlight. If you need to go out, wear a hat. Less exposure gives you better long-term results.
- Make sure you’re with the most credible SMP practitioner.
