Can Scalp Micropigmentation and Hair Transplants Work Together?

Scalp Micropigmentation and Hair Transplants

If you’re planning on getting a hair transplantScalp Micropigmentation (SMP) can become nearly a necessity. Whereas scalp micropigmentation is a great procedure to get done on its own, there are many reasons you may need scalp micropigmentation before and after getting hair transplants done, even in the best of cases.

The most popular procedure utilized by people getting hair transplants is called strip excision harvesting. It’s a highly invasive treatment where a surgeon will take a strip of your scalp from the back of your head, find the active and healthy follicles, and then re-implant them where you do not have active hair growth. The section of your scalp that is removed is about three to four inches and will be stitched shut during the procedure.

For some people, this procedure will be successful and hair will begin to grow in those areas for a natural, full look. The downside: this growth, if any, will not occur for a staggering six-to-nine months after the procedure and only about a MAX of 60% of all the transplanted follicles will begin to grow.

Receiving scalp micropigmentation before this procedure can ensure that you don’t go a single day further without the look of having a full head of hair. The procedure is noninvasive and results are immediate, permanent, and undeniably realistic!

For the many whom transplants will not work, receiving scalp micropigmentation is a great course of action. For those who experience great results from their hair transplants, one side effect of the procedure is an unsightly scar that runs the entire length of the back of the head.

Scalp micropigmentation can be used to cover up these scars, ensuring that it looks like there is still hair growth occurring over the affected area, as scar tissue cannot grow hair.

Hair transplants may be a good option for some, but because they can cost tens of thousands of dollars and often do not work at all, scalp micropigmentation is a wonderful cost-effective alternative with permanent results.
