Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is used as a general treatment for baldness as well as for treating specific skin conditions. But most commonly, SMP is used to cover any visible scarring from previous hair transplant procedures.
Even though hair transplant surgery has advanced a lot over the past few years, there can still be visible scarring associated with hair transplant procedures. There are ways to minimize this scarring effect, however.
Obviously, the type and severity of the scarring will vary based on the competency and type of hair transplant surgery. The most common types of hair transplant surgeries are FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (strip method).
