Here below are the pictures of a density effect tricopigmentation treatment performed on hair long a couple of centimeters after several hair transplants. Tricopigmentation and hair transplant reconfirm themselves to be an excellent combination to make up for hair loss.
This user previously underwent a few hair transplants in order to reach a good coverage on the upper part of the scalp. The follicular units were mainly grafted in the area of the hairline and midscalp in order to rebuild the frontal area and create more density in middle of the head.
In which way can tricopigmentation help hair transplant? One may ask what benefits a tricopigmentation treatment can bring to someone who already underwent a hair transplant. If you think about the principle behind hair transplants the answer is easy to find. Hair transplants consist in the extraction of follicular units from the occipital area, the so-called “donor area”, and their grafting in the thinned out areas, or “recipient areas”. In short, some hair is taken from the back of the head and placed in the upper area of the head (or scalp).
The problem of this type of process is that the donor area might not be rich enough in follicular units to allow extracting and the covering of the whole recipient area which can be rather large. The richness level of the donor area and the dimension of the recipient one are substantial parameters used to assess whether or not someone is a good candidate for hair transplant.
Hair transplant and tricopigmentation
After a hair transplant the patient may find himself in a situation when the density achieved is not entirely satisfying and the discoloration between the skin and the hair is still too visible. It is at this point that tricopigmentation enters the game. If mathematically speaking, the amount of follicular units is not sufficient to fill in all the thinned out areas, tricopigmentation can be a way to add many more “follicular units” by adding pigment dots that perfectly simulate nascent hair. In this case, thanks to tricopigmentation, we succeeded in obtaining a visually thicker, more intense, and more natural result.
Moreover, tricopigmentation can complement hair transplants as far as the scars are concerned. The presence of scars, STRIP or FUE, in the donor area is one of the possible post-transplant discomforts. Thanks to tricopigmentation it is possible to noticeably reduce their visibility.
