Scalp micropigmentation is primarily used to treat hair loss such as bald spots or thinning hair. However, it is equally effective in hiding head scars. At International Hairlines, we understand how scarring can impact your appearance and confidence. The good news is that with our scalp micropigmentation procedure, we can cover head scars. To learn more about how we use scalp micropigmentation to conceal scars and why you should get this done at International Harlies, please continue reading.
Understanding Scalp Micro Pigmentation
A scar is usually composed of fibrous tissue. It is the natural way for the human body to heal and replace lost or damaged skin. The traditional methods of hiding scar tissue on the scalp are either ineffective, costly, or require major surgery such as follicular unit extraction.
With scalp micropigmentation, a trained practitioner will use tiny needles to deposit small amounts of pigments on the scalp to create the appearance of real hair follicles. This same procedure can be done on top of scars, hiding them behind an even layer of pigments that look like natural hair. With scalp micropigmentation, you don’t get hair growth on the scar, but you get a scar camouflage.
The results for scalp micropigmentation can last more than four years after which all you need is a touch-up session to restore the appearance of real hair follicles over the scar. The procedure is safe and has minimal or no downtime. This means you don’t need to take time off work, miss your workouts, or have any major discomfort after the procedure. You may be asked by the scalp micropigmentation practitioner to avoid using any water on the scalp for a couple of days and use sunscreen to keep the area protected from harmful UV light.
Scalp micropigmentation can be used to cover different types of head scars including surgical scars, medical procedure cars, burn scars, injury scars, or even hypertrophic or keloid scars. While anyone can enjoy the benefits of scalp micropigmentation, you need to choose your clinic wisely.

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation for Scars in Fort Lauderdale
The impact of scars goes beyond aesthetics. Living with scars can have a negative psychological impact. Not only can it reduce confidence, but it can also have an impact on your self-esteem. If the scar tissue is located on the scalp, it might not be easy to conceal it. In addition, the scar might have left a bald spot on the scalp, further worsening the appearance.
This is not a hair transplant procedure. With scalp micropigmentation, you have a way to camouflage the scar without surgery or using a hairpiece. Align with the realistic-looking appearance that you get with scalp micropigmentation, you also get a choice of different styles in terms of hairline shape and density. Most people choose to keep the scalp micropigmentation similar to their real hair color and style, however, you can also choose to go with a different approach.
Another key benefit of scalp micropigmentation for hair transplant surgery is that you get immediate results. With just one session you can conceal the scar that has been bothering you for all this time. With any other type of procedure, you will likely need multiple sessions or a long recovery period.

There are many reasons why women may experience hair loss stemming from genetic predispositions, alopecia, stress and even menopause. Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a permanent solution for women with thinning areas on the crown and top of their heads. SMP creates the illusion of a full head of hair by creating an under-layer. For women with alopecia, SMP eliminates having to handle consistent spot balding. SMP is also used in camouflaging scars with the blending of surgical scars and temples of the face. With repeated insertions of the needle into the dermal layer of the skin is known to stimulate, or bring back, the hair follicles. Every treatment is tailored specifically to each person’s needs. Although SMP was originally designed for men, women are now taking advantage of its benefits.
alopecia & scars
Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder, alopecia triggers the body to attack healthy hair follicles which often leads to hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentation is the only guaranteed and reliable solution for all types of alopecia—be it universlies (total body hair loss), areata (round patches/bald spots) or totalis alopecia (complete baldness).
SMP is also a very common procedure when concealing hair transplant scars. Ranging from FUT or FUE hair transplant scars to alopecia or accident scarring, we provide an impeccable scars-camouflaging service, making them nearly impossible to detect.
