Hair transplant into scar
In areas where scalp skin has been damage and repaired, the natural hair follicles located in that area were permanently damaged and can no longer grow hair. No medication or topical therapy will help in that area.
Hair transplant can be a good option for the area although less reliable than in places such as the temple or crown. A consultation with a hair surgeon could help you review your options.

Yes hair will usually grow in burn scars. Depending on the density of hair desired, it may take 2 transplants to achieve the desired result. It hasn't been mentioned here as of yet however there has been evidence recently that has shown that in certain situations (burns), the first transplant yield may be lower than if transplanting an unaffected area. But the good news is that we have seen that a second transplant almost always has a higher yield. We believe this may be from the initial transplant causing blood vessels and growth factors to increase into the scarred area.As far as a scalp micropigmentation, please do your research because there are a number of positive/negative outcomes when it comes to this procedure.
It is best to consult with a doctor for treatment options. Both Scalp MicroPigmentation and Hair Transplant surgery are options
