Which method is worst for scaring?

Normally the two commonly used methods for hair transplantation are FUT hair transplant and FUE hair transplant. Both have their own pros and cons but which is the worst method when it comes to scaring.

FUT hair transplant

In FUT hair transplant, a strip is extracted from the back and sides of the scalp. Grafts are extracted from the strip and implanted on the recipient’s area. It results in a linear scar at the donor area. To further worsen the situation in this particular scenario, poor closure and healing of the strip can result in scar widening. The most effective method to treat this scar is via scalp micro pigmentation treatment.  Scalp micropigmentation treatment in Dubai will form the appearance of micro hairs on the scar, concealing it along with making your hair appear fuller.

FUE hair transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair transplant involves extracting hair grafts individually from the donor site via a punching tool. Grafts are then prepared for transplantation and then implanted on the recipient’s area. This hair transplant technique does not cause a big linear scar. The small dot like scars appears at the donor areas which are usually visible once the hair is shaved. Scalp micropigmentation treatment is used to conceal these scars. Scars due to FUE hair transplant can be completely concealed by SMP treatment. For more information.
