In stage 4 the hairline recession is more severe and you experience balding at the crown/vertex. A band of hair connects the sides. Adding the appearance of hair density would not work in those areas.

 

At this point we suggest that you shave or buzz cut your hair. We fill in the crown and restore your hairline. This is the only way that hair micropigmentation will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your hair.

As SMP artists, our goal is to create a natural-looking result that blends seamlessly with our client’s existing hair. When camouflaging an FUE transplant scar with micro hair pigmentation, I start by analyzing the scar and surrounding hair to determine the best pigment color and placement. I use digital machine to carefully deposit small dots of pigment into the scar, creating the appearance of hair follicles.
 
I then work to blend the dots into the surrounding hair, carefully adjusting the density and placement to create a realistic result. The process is typically completed in multiple sessions, with each session building upon the previous one to create a seamless, natural-looking result.
 
With proper care and maintenance, the results of SMP for camouflaging an FUE transplant scar can last for several years, providing a long-term solution for improved hair appearance and confidence.

FUT Transplant Scar Repair Micropigmentation

Price per session: £75-150

Number of sessions: 1-2

Total SMP price: up to £300

 

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration technique that involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area and transplanting individual follicular units into the recipient area. The resulting scar is usually a thin, linear scar on the back of the scalp, which can be easily hidden by surrounding hair, but may become more visible in some cases due to poor healing or tension on the wound during the healing process.
 
SMP is the most effective method to camouflage FUT scars. It works regardless of your skin or hair colour, but bear in mind that the scar area might still be slightly visible even after micropigmentation.
