Has anyone Used the HIS micro hair tattoo in the UK for scar camouflage only, not full scalp.

I've just had a consultation there and have been quoted ?1500 + vat for plug and strip scars all over the back of my head. This seems very expensive for about 5 hrs tattooing max.
Has anyone had scars only tattoed there? I am very interested in getting it done

Hi All,

I'm a new member to the Hair Restoration Network and this topic is exactly what I'm most interested in. I've looked into the tattooing procedure to conceal my HT scar, too. I'm concerned, as well, with the possibility of the scar being concealed if I wish to grow my hair out longer than say a #2 buzz. The results look great on all of the pictures I've seen, but I do have concerns like many of you. One of them is as we get older and grayer, the ink stays the same color, then what?

I've not been back to any physician since my last HT in 2006. As I've stated in my profile, both doctors have since passed away. I'm really distraught on what my next step should be and with whom. My HT didn't turn out like I envisioned. I've had 4 of them with a total of around 6500 transplants by way of the strip method. I am on the Norwood chart a 5 or 5A. I tell myself that I'm done with HT and keep hoping something magical will come out of the industry to help all of us.

At this point, I would settle for what I have (which isn't great by any stretch), but with a buzz cut, I don't think I would care. I just want to conceal my scar, but want to make the best choice like all of us in this situation. So, I'll be watching this site and will hope to find out what others know. If I hear or see anything, I'll be posting it, too.

Thanks everyone and Happy New Year!

kambojnav,

Thanks for your reply. I don't know if it's that simple...? I've read where sometimes the scar area doesn't take to the new implants.

Can you recommend a physician in the Indiana or surrounding states that I could contact? Would you know what the cost would be? I guess that second question would depend on the size of my scar.

Thanks

Hi,
we have many clients who had scar after strip surgery.and as far as growth on scar is concerned we have done grafting even on cicatricial alopecia . (after the remission of disease )and results are encouraging ,i mean 88 out of 100 grafts did survive . and that is a good ratio . sorry i have no idea about indiana . we have our centre in chandigarh india . ..pl feel free for any further discussion.

Milena Lardi made a revolution in concealing scars with SMP. What a great Job. The only down side is the time commitment as we have to do it over again which will require us (International patients) to fly all the way there. I hope they would export their technique to the middle east. We do have HIS hair clinic but I wont trust their technique as I trust Melina Lardi's :-)
