SMP For Scarring. Honolulu - Maui
Understanding Your how SMP can disuise your scar
Our hair is more than just hair—it’s a source of pride and self-assurance. We invest daily efforts into keeping it in tip-top shape because it significantly impacts our overall appearance. It can be emotionally overwhelming when hair loss takes an unexpected turn, altering our hairline or scalp. While the reasons behind hair loss can often be pinpointed by medical experts, finding effective solutions can be a challenge.
Hair transplantation comes in two common flavors: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT involves surgically removing a 6-10 inch strip of densely growing scalp hair, typically from the back of your head. On the other hand, FUE is a more intricate process where the surgeon meticulously extracts individual donor hair follicles, often starting by shaving the back of your head.
Concealing Surgical Scars with SMP
If you’re someone who prefers shorter hairstyles or needs to address surgical scars, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) might just be your game-changer. SMP can create the appearance of hair follicles, camouflaging surgical scars and delivering the illusion of full hair where it counts. The beauty of SMP lies in its ability to seamlessly blend with longer hair, effectively concealing any visible remnants of scars.
Keep in mind that surgical scars can be rather resilient and may not react to pigments like regular scalp skin. The typical SMP treatment course involves three to four sessions spanning one to six hours each. However, additional sessions might be required for scars, as we gauge how the area responds to the treatment.
