Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) for Hair Transplant Scars

For every wound, there is a scar, and every scar tells a story. But sometimes, we don’t want to share that story. When scars remain after a hair transplant, plugs, or scalp reduction, many feel self-conscious and don’t want to be reminded of them every time someone asks—and that’s okay.

If you have a scar on your scalp following a hair transplant or an accident, we can help you conceal it with Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) so that the finished product appears seamless surrounding the existing hair.

Types of Hair Transplants

Even though hair transplant surgery has come a long way in recent years, there is always the possibility of visible scarring after the procedure. However, there are treatments to reduce the scarring effect.

Obviously, the type and severity of the scarring will differ depending on the clinic’s skill and the sort of hair transplant procedure performed. FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (follicular unit transplantation) are the two most frequent hair transplant procedures.

How SMP Can Help Cover Surgical Scars on Scalps

Many hair transplant surgeons and clinics now recommend scalp micropigmentation for their patients (SMP). SMP helps to produce the illusion of natural hair follicles by implanting organic ink into the scalp.

SMP results will last about 3–5 years before requiring a touch-up. It’s a relatively painless surgery with a natural-looking effect that will help you regain your confidence.

For those who prefer a shorter cut, it helps balance out the appearance of hair follicles at the back of the head. But SMP can also give dense coverage to those with longer hair. This conceals the scar’s bareness, assisting in the concealment of evidence that the person underwent any operation. Whether the person has FUT or FUE, the result is the same.

The scar area will not be the only thing addressed. SMP treatment will also be done on the portions on either side in order to achieve a blended natural look.

The Best Alternative to FUT and FUE Scars

FUT and FUE scars, as well as hair loss in general, can be treated using scalp micropigmentation. Micropigmentation has the following benefits:


  • Cost: SMP is extremely inexpensive when compared to other forms of hair loss treatment. And once it’s done, it’s done.
  • Safety: Because SMP does not require medications or incisions, there are no side effects and a considerably decreased risk of infection. It’s a painless treatment that’s similar to having a scalp tattoo!
  • Concealment: SMP is excellent for concealing hair transplant scars, as well as hair thinning and balding.
