SMP Treatment for

Disguising Scars

Scalp Micropigmentation for Scars

Scalp Micropigmentation can effectively conceal scars

Hair loss is a very common occurrence and can have significant self esteem and confidence issues for sufferers.

Hair Transplant Scars

Many people suffering hair loss now opt to receive a hair transplant to restore their lost hair. Gone are the old ‘plug’ style hair transplants which are now replaced by the FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction) transplant procedures, which involve removing a large section of the scalp from the back of the head and implanting sections to the top and front of the scalp, with the intention that they grow again. Whilst these advanced techniques cause less scarring than previous methods, there is commonly still a scar on the back of the head which can be difficult to hide if the hair continues to thin.

How can scalp micropigmentation help disguising scalp scars?

Scalp micropigmentation, also known as SMP, was originally developed to cover scars and has since developed to cover the whole scalp or just smaller areas as necessary. SMP scar camouflage works to blend the scar tissue with the surrounding area. In many cases the scar is concealed up to 90% although this depends on the type of scar and the way any remaining hair is worn.

Can SMP be used for disguising scalp scars of all kinds?

SMP can be used on the majority of scars, but there are factors to be considered prior to treatment, including the age, texture, colour and integrity of the skin. We assess and approach each scar differently, but generally the scars that we can work on are:

  • FUT scars – commonly called ‘strip scars’, these are usually a single line at the back of the head.
  • FUE scars – common called ‘dot scars’, these are clusters of small scars usually at the back of the head, and sometimes behind the ears.
  • ‘Plug’ and ‘Cobblestone’ scars – these are the result of older hair transplant methods, poor technique or inadequate healing.
  • Scars from neurosurgery or other head trauma.
