Recipient area smoothness

by this point, if you have scarring, you will likely have it long term. You should have follow up with other surgeons in the area, but be very cautious about doing laser treatments to the area, as it can affect the hair bulb and affect your transplant results as well.

Hair transplant microblade scars. How can I retrieve the smoothness of the recipient area?

Thanks for your query. They are very tiny scars and come as normal side effect of hair transplant. There are very little options available for it. You can try out resurfacing laser for the scar and scar revision for the big scar. It is best to leave it as such. Hope it helps.

At 15 months following hair transplant and you now have scars in the recipient area, there is little you can do at this stage
