Scar Concealment

Prior to the existence of Scalp Micropigmentation, hair transplantation was the only proven method for permanent hair restoration. SMP can help cover the scarring naturally as though the scar never happened for both FUT and FUE transplants.

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure leaves clients with a strip scar in the back of the head where the donor tissue was taken from. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant done by taking individual hair follicles from your skin and moving them to another part of your body where hair’s thinner or absent.


FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)​

The procedure utilises follicle grafts from the donor areas (the sides and back of the head). For each follicle graft extraction, the surgeon uses a micro-punch tool. The hair transplant scarring for this procedure is tiny and round, up to a millimeter in diameter. It depends on how the extraction of hair follicles occurs; as many as hundreds or even thousands of scars appear from the punch tool. These puncture scars may look like tiny white dots post-healing. You should know each of these follicle scars contains one to four strands.

FUT (Follicular Unit Extraction)​

This procedure necessitates the extraction of a strip of scalp from the donor area. Typically, the donor area is on the occiput. Once the surgeon removes the strip, the proceed to suture the field together. The suturing leaves a linear scar of variable lengths, predicated on the extracted strip. There are instances where the scar tissue elongates from ear to ear. The hair follicle grafts came from the scalp strip and grafted onto the recipient areas where micro-incisions are there for each hair.
