tricopigmentation on post transplant scar
This client underwent a hair transplant by a surgeon whose name we don’t want to reveal.
He wanted to keep his hair shaved and the surgeon did a strip to place the grafts only in the midscalp. The strategy he chose was wrong and besides this fact, the scar in the donor area widened and looks now in diastasis.
After a hair transplant, both FUE and Strip, it is necessary to be extremely careful.
First of all the surgeon should tell the patient to avoid any kind of effort (at the gym) and especially those movement that cause tension in the occipital area (e.g. crunch).

The treatment was not easy. However we managed to obtain a good result. The upper area of the scalp looks even and the grafts can be noticed only by looking at the scalp from a very close distance.
As far as the scar is concerned, it is important to remember that this tissue is peculiar (due to the absence of the epidermis) and that the hair in the donor area is very rich and there is therefore a strong dyscromia between the scar and the surrounding area. Therefore, despite the fact that scars are usually treated in 2 sessions, in this case coverage was not enough.
The patient will decide in the future if he wants to try to cover the scar even more using Tricopigmentation or maybe opt for another solution (for example a scar reduction or a FUE on scar).
These photos were taken after the second session.
The tissue around the scar still looks reddish.
It will be necessary to treat it again to make it look as even as possible.
There is still some pigment in the grafts.
Remember that for 24 hours after the treatment the patient MUSN’T wash his head (since there would be an excessive blood supply). What we can do is to cleanse the treated area.
