We Correct Hair Transplant Scars and More!
If you have a bad hair transplant scar from another clinic, we have multiple ways to correct it, both surgically and non-surgically.
If you are a candidate, we can also camouflage other types of scalp scars, burns or birth defects with hair restoration or micropigmentation.
How to Avoid a Hair Transplant Scar
It’s highly unlikely that you’ll get a bad hair transplant scar if you go to a reputable hair transplant clinic. If you don’t have any unusual medical conditions, and you follow the aftercare instructions, your scar should be hard to find.
We Use the Finest Surgeons
At PAI Medical Group, we use the finest hair transplant surgeons in the industry. They have decades of surgical experience and are all members of ISHRS. We also offer two types of surgery, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and our trademarked Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ (MUHG) which is renowned for minimal scarring.
During our MUHG procedure, surgeons are careful to take scalp elasticity and incision length into consideration as they create a suture line. They use what’s called a Trichophytjc closure, which minimizes the scar’s appearance by allowing hair to grow back through the fine line, further hiding the scar.
Camouflage with Hair
Restoring Hair Loss Due to an Injury, Burn or Birth Defect
Injuries or burns can be devastating, especially when it results in scars and permanent hair loss. When the scalp is scarred due to an accident, a burn, or an injury, the blood supply beneath the surface of the skin can sometimes be compromised.
This can be enough to impact the normal growth and health of delicate hair follicles. Without adequate blood supply, vital nutrients can’t be delivered, causing permanent hair loss in that area. For young children this can be devistating as you will see in this video.
Our patient Alyssa came back to visit with PAI years after her hair restoration. She experienced an injury during birth and had to live with a terrible scar for the first 16 years of her life. Watch as Alyssa reminisces about her experience at PAI when she got a hair transplant.
Four Ways to Correct Your Hair Transplant Scar
Do You Have Questions About Micro-Pigmentation?
Yes. Unlike a tatoo that goes through several layers, micro-pigmentation is done only in the first layer which makes it easier to remove.
Most patients find that it is not uncomfortable because the pigment is not being embedded deeply into the skin.
No. The range of colors in tattoo ink are not as varied. We use a vegan friendly, salt based dermal pigment.
It is extremely difficult to distinguish between a real hair and a virtual one.
Micro-pigmentation is permanent but will start to fade after 10 years or more. We use high quality pigment and the process is repeated more than once.
Do You Have Questions About FUE?
Yes, most patients get 50-80% growth in the scar which is enough to adequately camouflage the scar’s appearance.
Not everyone is a candidate for this type of procedure. If the scar is not vascular, hair follicles will not survive due to diminished blood supply beneath the surface of the skin. The scar may be too wide and deep for hair restoration to be successful. A consultation is the only way to determine whether or not this type of scar correction is right for you.
Unlike a regular hair transplant, an FUE scar correction is relatively short taking approximately one hour.
Do You Have Questions About Surgical Removal?
In rare cases where there is no improvement in the scar’s appearance, we can use FUE to harvest the hair, eliminating a linear scar altogether, and implant harvested hair follicles directly into the scar. This alternative procedure would be done at a discount.
