When applied correctly, SMP is a life-changing procedure for scar concealment.
Frequently I am asked about “SCARS FROM HAIR TRANSPLANTS”
Our results with FUT (strip scars) and FUE (circular plug scars) have both been excellent.
Performing SMP properly can significantly improve scars’ visual appeal.
Scars from FUE can also be problematic if they are large, plentiful, and surrounded by sparse hair.
Before booking an SMP clinic and expecting positive results, you should take into account some key aspects of the process.
SCARS FROM HAIR TRANSPLANTS COME IN DIFFERENT SHAPES AND COLOURS.
It is possible to conceal unsightly scars fully or partially with SMP. A scar can have varying degrees of success depending on the artist’s skill and experience. This is due to the colour and density of the surrounding hair, and finally, the scar’s shape, color, and condition.
Unlike regular healthy tissue, scar tissue behaves differently than normal healthy tissue, so it must be treated conservatively to avoid less than ideal results (in some cases, even worse than before).
A flat, thin, light scar might be ideal for easier FUT concealment. The scar is surrounded by dense dark hairs. For an experienced artist, this would be a relatively easy concealment.
The scar however may be quite tricky to treat if it is cratered, protruding, wide, and covered with sparse hair. Scars that are darker than the surrounding skin are also difficult to treat.
In some cases, scar tissue behaves differently from healthy tissue
The skin surrounding a scar can be thin and hollow or thick and dense. Either way, it will not absorb pigment as readily as the tissue surrounding the scar. In order to conceal scar tissue effectively, the SMP artist must be very conservative and cautious in his approach.
To ensure the most successful results, see above, seek the advice of a professional SMP artist with extensive and successful experience working with scar tissue. This is before embarking on SMP for scar concealment. Get a sample of their scar concealment work.
