SMP for Scarring
The scalp is home to the thickest skin on the body. Evolution has ensured that our heads are the most protected parts of our body. At the same time, the scalp is also home to the largest number of blood vessels, not to mention hair follicles.
When the scalp is injured it will bleed more because of the density of blood circulation. Due to this incredible amount of activity, thanks to millions of cells and blood vessels, following an injury, it is more common than not for a scar to form.
Sometimes it is a surgery, or a head injury that can result in troublesome scars where hair will no longer grow. Sometimes it is a burn, which presents as a different type of scar. The hair will often no longer grow at the location of the scar due to the damage to the hair follicle.
How can it
Scalp micropigmentation, done expertly to address scar tissue, will disguise the hypopigmented area of the scar (scars are often whitish or pink) yielding the perception of hair follicles at the treated area.
The density of the follicles will depend on the nature and size of the scar itself. Furthermore, if hair loss is expected to progress, the scalp artist will plan and apply specific techniques for this eventuality.
A little-known secret about scalp micropigmentation for scalp scars is that the treatment can also help reduce the appearance of the scar. Your artist will explain how this can occur in some cases.
A thorough consultation will review a treatment plan for disguising scalp scars. The scar itself is thicker and denser and will require an advanced specialist to assess and plan an appropriate treatment so that those scars need not be a bother any longer.
