Hair transplant procedures and scarring
A traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) procedure leaves a line shaped scar on the donor area at the back of the head. Patients need to wear their hair at a minimum length to hide the scar.
Even better, Micro Sapphire DHI leaves dot scars so small that they can be described as micro scars. This treatment offers minimal scarring and the most natural looking results on the market.
Hair transplantation procedures on already existing scars
When they are situated on the head, scars can be particularly upsetting. Hair can no longer grow from scar tissue under its own power and thus bald patches can form.
When is a hair transplant on a scar an option?
Can hair be transplanted onto any scar?
Generally, a hair transplant can be performed on any scar. However, the scar sometimes needs to be prepared. The excess tissue must first be removed if the scarring was accompanied by severe tissue growth.
What technique is best to transplant hair onto a scar?
The slit technique for particularly thin areas of skin
The Micro Holes Technique
How long does a hair transplant on scar tissue take?
The aftercare of a hair transplant is the same as a standard hair transplant without scars. Clear results are already visible after around 3 to 6 months. After about a year, you can enjoy a full, healthy-looking head of hair again.
