More About
FUT & FUE Hair Transplant
Scars Coverup

Scalp micropigmentation for scars is extremely common with men who have hair transplant scars. If you’ve had a hair transplant (FUE or FUT) these types of hair transplant scars can be very visible and limit hairstyle options. A large percentage of SMP clients seek the treatment to help camouflage FUE and FUT scarring associated with prior hair transplants. We can help hide these hair transplant scars for our clients. Scalp micropigmentation for scars will not just hide your scar, but the process can also help heal the injured skin.

The process of scalp micropigmentation for scars will generate more collagen in an effort to heal the small wounds. In theory, the needles from the SMP are producing new collagen that is formed which will help smooth out your scar’s appearance.

It is important to note that an individual seeking scalp micropigmentation for scars, either FUE or FUT hair transplant scars, will need to have the scar inspected to be sure there is no keloid or hypertrophic trauma.  These scars will have a lot of knots or tough collagen buildup in the scar, and they are generally raised and will feel quite bumpy.

It is very important that we first flatten and smooth the scar as best we can to give you the best result possible. If we were to try and insert pigment directly into one of these damaged scars, the pigment will most likely migrate, thus giving you a poor result.

We take great pride in making you look your best, and we will go over the best options and the best course of action to help camouflage and eliminate your hair transplant scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Scalp Micropigmentation for Scars

CLICK A QUESTION BELOW TO EXPAND THE ANSWER

What is scalp micropigmentation for scars (SMP for scars)?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a widely popular non-surgical hair loss solution whereby minuscule deposits of pigment simulate hair follicles on the scalp. SMP for men, however, is extremely intricate and not a mere “hair tattoo.” We use different pigments and needles to accurately simulate tiny hair follicles.

How long does scalp micropigmentation for scars last?

SMP for scars is permanent, however, the “dots” or injected pigment lessen in circumference very slightly over time. While this is not technically fading, the scalp will benefit from a touch-up session every 4-6 years. This nearly imperceptible decrease in circumference happens because macrophage cells in the human immune system will gradually break up and disperse pigment from any procedure, albeit extremely slowly.

What will my head look like immediately after treatment?

Expect some redness which will subside after a day or two.

Is SMP for scars painful?

Although each client’s pain sensitivity differs, SMP for scars is much less painful than a traditional tattoo. SMP needles are so thin, some customers say they feel almost nothing. When asked to rate their pain levels, most SMP clients report 1-3 on a scale of 1-10.

Can SMP for scars be removed?

Yes, SMP for scars can be removed with an electro-optic Q switched laser, which is used to heat and break up SMP pigmentation for easier absorption by phagocytes in the dermis. SMP is easy to remove because the pigment isn’t deposited as deep as traditional tattoo ink.

Does insurance cover scalp micropigmentation for scars?

No, sorry. Scalp micropigmentation for scars is a cosmetic procedure by nature, so it is rarely ever covered by medical insurance. It’s worth checking with your insurance provider about potential coverage since policies vary as do personal circumstances.

Is scalp micropigmentation for scars safe?

SMP for scars is a non-surgical solution to recreate hair follicles over your scar. Needles deposit pigment below the upper layer of the skin, similar to a body art tattoo. The procedure is a very safe remedy when performed by a professional.

How is SMP for scars different than a regular tattoo?

Unlike traditional tattooing, with SMP for scars the pigment is deposited near the epidermal layer rather than deep inside the dermal layer. SMP can be removed by laser much more easily than traditional tattoos.

Will I be able to go in the sun?

We recommend always using some sort of sunscreen to retain the ink its longest. Should you choose not to use sunscreen, for the first 30 days you must cover your head with sunscreen or a hat.

What is the treatment process and how long is one session?

Depending on the scar, the first treatment session generally takes 1-3 hours while the second and third sessions take 1-2 hours. Each session is performed 1-2 weeks apart with the average client receiving 3 sessions.

What should I be cautious of in the days following my treatment?

In the first 4 days following treatment, avoid shaving, showers, sweating, scrubbing, shampooing topicals and long term exposure to sunlight. It’s okay to lightly dab the area with wet cloths, but do not soak the head. After 4 days, it’s okay to shower (lightly), shave, and use fragrance free moisturizers. After 10 days, you can resume your normal activities, but it’s still best to avoid long term sunlight for 30 days.

How often will men need to shave their head where the scar was?

This is a personal preference, but most clients opt for a buzzed look where they shave that area with clippers every 3 days.

How much does scalp micropigmentation for scarring cost?

The cost of SMP for scars varies per client.  We base the cost on how much of the treatment needs to be applied and by how many sessions are needed per client, which is assessed based on each individual scar.  We offer FREE consultations for everyone. During the consultation, we will be able to assess your scalp and from there we can judge approximately how much treatment and how many sessions you will need.

Does scalp micropigmentation for scars look natural / real?

Scalp micropigmentation for scars looks incredibly real, as long as it is applied correctly. Many of our clients say their family, friends, and co-workers say something looks different about them, but no one ever knows what it is that has changed and that’s what we want when addressing a scar!

Does SMP stimulate hair growth or help grow my hair back?

No, sorry, scalp micropigmentation for scars will not grow your hair back. However, SMP for scars gives you the look of real hair where the scar was.
