Scar Camouflage

Scalp Prodigy offers expert scar camouflage using Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) techniques. Many people aren’t aware that hair transplants leave behind visible surgical scars, but SMP is ideal for obscuring these scars to create a more natural appearance by allowing the areas with transplanted hair to blend in with your natural hair. In fact, many hair transplant surgeons refer their clients to Scalp Prodigy after their transplant procedures to hide the resulting scarring. 

Other surgeries and injuries can also leave behind unsightly scars. These, too, can be camouflaged with Scalp Micropigmentation. Even facial scars can benefit from micropigmentation treatments.

Our team at Scalp Prodigy is internationally recognized for our exceptional work and attention to detail, including precise gradient scales, natural hairlines, and following standard protocols for realism.

Camouflaging Hair Transplant Scars With Scalp Micropigmentation

Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is a type of hair transplant surgery that creates linear scars that are very apparent, but difficult to camouflage for inexperienced SMP technicians. At Scalp Prodigy, we have the right equipment and the skilled professionals to make even the most difficult scars virtually undetectable.

Many people choose the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method of hair transplantation, as it is often referred to as a scarless procedure. While it may not leave behind the same type of scarring as other hair transplant surgeries, it does cause small, pin-prick size white dots at the locations where hair follicles were harvested. To correct the patchy appearance this creates, we use SMP on these white dots, allowing them to blend in with your hair for the illusion of thickness.

Scar camouflage with Scalp Micropigmentation involves inserting microdots of ink into the scalp and scar to make it blend in with the rest of your hair. This can be used to mimic the look of a freshly shaved head, or it can simply create the appearance of more density. Since scars don’t absorb ink the same way that healthy skin does, it is absolutely crucial that you get SMP scar camouflage from someone who has extensive experience and knowledge.

Frequently Asked Questions About Scar Camouflage

Yes, SMP works on scars, but it’s important to understand that it works differently on scarred tissue than how it works on healthy skin. The ink can take longer to settle and treating scarred areas requires a different technique. At Scalp Prodigy, we have the experience to get your scar camouflage done right.

SMP can camouflage hypertrophic scars, and hypotrophic scars. Keloid scars must be reduced with steroids from a licensed physician. The technique for each is slightly different based on how the scar healed. Microneedling these areas may be needed to flatten the scar before getting started with treatment.

Most of our scar camouflage clients need at least four sessions, but this can vary depending on the extent of your scarring.

Because scar tissue can react to inks differently, results may vary. For most of our clients, scar camouflage lasts between three to five years, and then it begins to fade. We’ll provide you with tips to extend the life of your SMP treatment. Scars can only be covered up to 80% to ensure the scar is not oversaturated.

The only way to know how much scar camouflage costs for you is to schedule an appointment for a consultation. The cost range is normally $1000-$2000 to correct a scar.
