Scalp micropigmentation can be used to treat scarring

There are different ways to treat balding as it progresses. This can be remedied through the initial use of products to treat mild hair loss. The use of shampoos and concealers are the usual preliminary methods to cure it. Progression toward medication is made once the balding is more apparent. This is when hair growth needs to be encouraged and the thinning hair made to appear thicker. It can also be treated through hair transplants when the alopecia progresses. The condition should not be too advanced though that the donor area would be insufficient to cover the balding regions.

Hair transplants, whether it be follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE) methods, will always leave scarring. These marks will be very noticeable when hair is worn short. It could be rather unsightly especially if it did not heal well. There is a way however, to cover these scars.

Scar before and after scalp micropigmentation

A scalp micropigmentation procedure is designed to cover balding areas and make it look like it is covered with hair. The process is technical in nature and mimics the size, shape and color of the hair follicles of the patient. It does this well by blending in with the existing hair upon his scalp. This helps it complete the illusion of a full head of hair.

The application of SMP goes beyond providing the appearance of a “just-shaven” scalp. It can also be used to create the appearance of thicker hair in cases of diffuse thinning. Camouflaging the exposed areas and working with the longer hair strands can easily achieve this by making sure that the bald spots resemble hair. It can also help cover noticeable marks such as scars. An SMP can achieve this in the same way it does with its other hair treatments. The scar can easily be hidden by carefully placed pigment patterns, allowing it disappear under its layers. This can be done for an FUT, FUE and even trauma induced scarring.

It is important to remember that selecting the right SMP provider should be based on feedback and personal research. The price of the procedure should be among the least of the factors that influences a person’s decision. A prospective client would be safer paying for a more expensive SMP treatment than one that is offered at a bargain price. This is because of the added costs that go into creating a quality procedure. A patient should be careful when considering their provider because the treatment they are to receive is a permanent one. They can either end up with a solution to their very noticeable predicament or can make it stand out even more by getting a poorly made job.
