Scars after hair transplant – can scalp micropigmentation cover them?

Hair loss can be a difficult issue, however, hair transplant surgeries offer a way for people to regain a fuller head of hair. Unfortunately, transplant surgeries do leave scarring behind, and for those who like to keep their hair short, these scars can be obvious and unaesthetic, but there is a solution. 

There are 2 types of popular hair transplants in Chicago, Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT and Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE. In FUT, a strip of hair is removed from an area with abundant hair and the follicles are donated to the bald regions, while in FUE each graft is removed one by one and transplanted. Though there are benefits and downsides to each, which your doctor should help you to understand, both will leave some scarring. 

Luckily, there is a relatively non-invasive way to help cover up these scars using scalp micropigmentation. Many people have heard of other facial micropigmentation, such as microblading to increase the apparent thickness for eyebrows, but did you know there is also microblading for your scalp right here in Chicago? 

Scalp repigmentation is essentially a hair tattoo, or hairline tattoo in Chicago, that can help camouflage scars resulting from a hair transplant surgery. Hair micropigmentation is a careful process of adding small dots across your head in bald areas, and blending them into the hair that remains, in order to mimic the look of a closely shaved, yet full, head of hair. 

Though scalp hair micropigmentation does not completely erase the scar, it has had very successful results in patients, where 90-95% of the scar is totally camouflaged, and the rest is only noticeable at certain angles, and surely only to those who already know that you have recently gotten a hair tattoo! After normally 2 sessions (no less than 2!), the scalp has the appearance of a full head of hair with a close shave, and then people who have undergone hair micropigmentation can choose their favorite hair style with confidence. 

The even better news is that it is not very painful, even less than a normal tattoo, and also less than the hair transplant surgery itself.
