Dr. Ron Shapiro-Chemical Burn Scar Result-2 Sessions over 2 yrs - Final Result


Recommended Posts

At Shapiro Medical, we often get referrals for some of the lesser known causes of hair loss. In this post we present the use of hair transplants in chemical burns. This is not uncommon and there are a fair number of females who will accidently suffer a 3rd degree chemical burn of the scalp during hair lightening. Because the blood supply is poorer in this type of scar, we have to usually plan on two sessions. The first one adds some hair but also converts the scar tissue into more normal dermal tissue with a better blood supply. The hair transplants also act as small skin grafts that will attract a better blood supply and the tissue becomes healthier. The second transplant can be done more densely. If one is too aggressive the first time around you can get necrosis and poor growth. It is very rewarding to do these type of patients.
