Can Scalp Micropigmentation Cover a Head Scar?


Can Scalp Micropigmentation Cover a Head Scar?People end up with scars for all types of reasons. From surgery to accidents, scars often tell a story of their own, and many times, those are stories we'd prefer not to tell. Why is it that a scar seems to be an open invitation to the question, "What happened?" Not only is that scar unsightly and causing a bald spot in your hair, but it can lead to some uncomfortable conversations. Due to these reasons, many people prefer to cover up a scar using one of several methods, including expensive hair transplants.

Options for covering a head scar

The simplest way to cover a head scar is to wear a hat or other accessory that covers it up. But do you really want to wear a head or scarf every time you leave the house? Probably not. On top of that, there's going to be many scenarios in which you simply can't wear a hat. So what are you other options?

To cover a head scar some people elect to have hair transplant surgery, which are the same procedures used to reverse hair loss. There are two primary types of hair transplants, which are follicular unit strip surgery and follicular unit extraction. While this may be an option for some, the downside for most is the cost. You can expect to pay up to $15,000 dollars out of pocket for these types of surgeries. Are there any other options to camouflage a head scar? Yes!

SMP and head scars

A popular and permanent procedure that is used to provide the appearance of a full head of hair and reduce the visibility of scars is called scalp micropigmentation (SMP). The process is similar to tattooing, but uses special pigmented ink and unique tools to provide patients with a naturally appearing head of hair. Not only is SMP an effective method of covering head scars, but people often elect to use it to even out a hairline, reduce the appearance of thinning hair and even cover a fully bald head so they can have the look of a clean buzz cut.

SMP is much more affordable than surgery, and gives you a coverup that works around the clock, unlike a hat!
