Scalp micropigmentation

scalp micropigmentation is best done when the redness of the scar is gone.  Don't rush it and be patient.

Micropigmentation to hide scalp scar

If your goal of micropigmentation is to reduce redness of a new scalp scar, I would wait a year.  Typically, scars change in color and lighten over many months.  Give your body the necessary time to go through its natural changes.

Scalp Micropigmentation SMP does not affect transplanted hair or harm existing hairs.

Scalp Micropigmentation SMP does not affect transplanted hair or harm existing hairs.  You should generally wait until your donor scar has healed.  It is best to follow up with your doctor.
