SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION TREATMENT
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
Scar Camouflage is one of the big advantages of Scalp Micropigmentation. The scars that we very often treat could have originated from transplant treatments (FUT or FUE), burns or other trauma. The process of treating / camouflaging a scar with Scalp Micropigmentation will always have to start with a good consultation with the client. During this step the practitioner will also analyse what type of scar it is and look at the tissue of the scar.During the consultation you will be advised about the possible results that we can achieve. Not all scars can be treated with Scalp Micropigmentation but most can.
IMPROVING YOUR SCARS
When we are dealing with a nice flat scar we can almost get 100% results. However if we are dealing with hyperthropic scars we can only get a result of around 80% due to the skin tissue of the scar. In cases of atrophic or sunken scars we can sometimes a result of 50% Unfortunately when we are dealing with Keloid scars we would never conduct the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment and with irregular scars we will first advise you to book a scar reduction or relaxtion treatment to improve the skin tissue of the scar. The Scalp Micropigmentation sessions that we will carry out on the scar will depend on the characteristics of the scar. The most common process is to conduct the treatment in three sessions. In session 1, we should be able to achieve the desired effect as soon as we finish the session. However, due to the fact that the scar tissue is not comparable to the rest of the scalp tissue, more sessions of treatment will be needed.
The follow up sessions must be carried out after 30 and 60 days following the first session. A final session may be needed after 90 days, which depends on how well the pigment has taken in the scar tissue. In the cases of Atrophic or sunken and irregular scars, we will usually do a small area first and let it heal for 30 days before we start the complete treatment. This is neccessary because scar tissue, especially in atrophic scars, can be unpredictable.
