This is a topic that scalp micropigmentation specialists have been discussing for many years, but it was not until a few months ago that the possibility of combining scalp micropigmentation with a hair transplant became popular among those who are searching for a solution to their problems of hair loss or baldness. Many even affirm that combining both techniques correctly can bring the best aesthetic results.
Well, this combination is perfectly possible, and more and more successful cases are being seen in the portfolios that different clinics and studios show to their clients. To such a degree that many hair transplant clinics recommend performing both procedures on some of their clients if they believe this is the best option after evaluating each specific case. Some of them already provide this service and they themselves enlist the services of different scalp micropigmentation specialists.
At Aldemar Campos Micropigmentation we have received many patients referred by diverse hair transplant specialists who consider us a reference in our sector and put their trust in us to ensure their clients obtain the best possible results. Although we are not directly related to a particular clinic or surgeon, we often provide our services to people who have been referred to us by some of the most prestigious clinics in Europe and Turkey, and by reputed clinics in Spain.
In principle, scalp micropigmentation was the solution of choice for people who wanted to make their hair look thicker, which a previous hair transplant was unable to achieve because as is well known by all those of us who are experts in the matter, a hair transplant is limited to the donor area from which the hair follicles that are subsequently grafted in the recipient area are taken. In this way, many people have managed to improve the previous result.
From this point on, we professionals started to think about the best way to combine both techniques. We can say that in our case, the Aldemar Campos team considers that the best way to achieve this is as follows. The scalp micropigmentation procedure should be performed before the transplant, as the result will be much better if the specialist works on an intact scalp. But it is up to the surgeon to delimit the area on which to work. The surgeon must draw the front line according to the extension and degree of baldness of the patient, taking into account the capacity of the hair donor area. After performing the micropigmentation procedure, it will be necessary to wait a few weeks to ensure the pigment has set properly and then this will be the perfect time to perform the hair transplant.
On the basis of our experience, we at Aldemar Campos Micropigmentation firmly believe that if the client requires a shaved look, scalp micropigmentation is more than sufficient for their needs.
On the other hand, if the client’s intention is to let their hair grow, then the scalp micropigmentation-hair transplant combination is an excellent option, provided both treatments are performed by competent professionals.
