Scarring negatively affects a person’s self image. Advancements in cosmetic procedures surgical and non-surgical provide alternatives in revising hair transplant scars or scars in other areas of the body that have hair.
FUE and SMP Transplant for Scalp Scar Revision
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) allows a hair transplant surgeon to individually remove donor grafts without a measure incision in the patient’s scalp. This means a small number of grafts can be used and placed within recipient sits within a scar. This means scars in other places that have hair (eyebrows, pubis etc…) can be treated by transplanting of a small number of follicular units into the scar and on its margins to blend it to the surrounding area.
Scalp Micro-pigmentation is used to simulate stubble hair making it also good for obscuring scars.
SMP for Scar Revision
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) is a non surgical cosmetic procedure that can be used in scar revision. It can works well with scalp scars. Special pigments are injected into the scar. The appearance is like stubble hair. It is injected into the scalp in a manner to obscure the scar or make it blend into the surrounding area.
These more recent advances in cosmetic procedures; FUE and SMP are performed in Los Angeles hair transplant centers like US Hair Restoration.
Enhancing your appearance with scar revision surgery
Several people are unhappy of having scars. Facial scarring is the most affected source of self-consciousness, even though scars may be disturbing anywhere in the body for a person. Facial scar revision is taken in consideration after any cosmetic procedure. Scar revision is a surgical procedure which may greatly improve the appearance of scars and increase one’s self-confidence.
Scar revision techniques vary. Finding the best technique for the right person would depend on the type of your skin, the individuality of the scar and other factors. Scar revision does not completely remove a scar but minimizes the appearance of it as much as possible.
Scars are visible markings, the formation or the discoloration on the skin is shown after the complete healing process of a wound. They are unavoidable consequences of minor traumatic injury or surgery. The development of a scar cannot be predictable. Poor healing may cause scars to be obvious, unsightly and have some sort of disfiguration. A wound that heals well can still result in a scar that adversely affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, may also differ in color or texture from the surrounding healthy tissue or particularly be noticeable due to the size, shape and location.
Based on the degree of the scar and the scar classification the treatments can vary. Treatments may include:
• Over the counter topical treatments
• Prescribed topical treatments
• Minimally invasive dermatological procedures
• Cosmetic surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure
The one purpose of scar revision surgery is to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture; basically to reduce the scars visibility. Scar revision provides a more pleasing cosmetic result to improve scar that has healed poorly. However, they may not be erased completely.
