Scalp micro pigmentation is a wonderful thing. It creates a massive confidence boost, it gives you the look of a full head of hair, and it also adds to the appearance of youthfulness. But there is more to it than that; it has another very special, totally unique benefit that many may not have considered before, but that could change your life completely for the better.
The SMP technique is also used to cover and conceal scars left by hair transplant surgery. Hair transplant surgery is another exceptionally good way of creating new hair growth on a previously bald or thinning scalp. But it is surgery, and it can leave scars. The scars fade, but sometimes they don’t fade as quickly, or as fully as might be hoped. Scars from hair transplant procedures today are not as obvious as those done in the past (pioneering techniques and experts in the field have meant huge improvements in this sector), but they are still there. They are inevitable. This is where having additional scalp micro pigmentation comes in.
Using scalp micro pigmentation to cover up hair transplant scars is the ideal way to do it. There are other methods such as scar revision (changing the direction of a scar), implanting hair directly into the scar tissue, and cortisone injections (to ‘flatten’ the scar tissue) along with dermal fillers. But SMP is becoming more and more popular as it not only covers the scar, but it also enhances the look of the scalp. And if laser treatment is carried out first, the final look is even better – it is smooth, attractive, and full of life. Exactly as you wanted it to be when you decided to have a hair transplant in the first place.
The options for SMP are either to have the entire scalp treated, or simply the scar itself. It depends on how you choose to wear your hair – if you want to have it longer, then it is likely that you will only need to have SMP where the scars will show. But what if you feel like a change or look? What if you want to shave your head, for example? The scars that were previously hidden will now be on show. This is why many people opt to have their entire scalp treated with SMP, even if they initially want longer hair. It means that they can change their hairstyle whenever they want, and it means that they can have the freedom they were looking for.
