eClinic hair transplant clinic and scars

“A young man came to eClinic hair transplant clinic because of a fairly large scar on his head. This place was a remnant of a treatment he had undergone for skin cancer.
With this person, the area was clearly visible to others and he felt very insecure. When we saw him again after a year, it was clear that he had become much more confident. That is incredibly beautiful to experience.”

 

The difference between normal skin and scar tissue

Normal skin is soft, pink and contains all the structures that the skin normally requires. Scar tissue is often stiffer, whiter and the structures have disappeared, including hair follicles. When one has a scar on a hairy head, it is often at a place where no hair follicle can be found. Because of this, the area often stands out. This also has to do with the color of the skin that is usually whiter than anywhere else. It may also be that scar tissue is very thin, in which case there are often blood vessels visible just below the skin. This area is more vulnerable to damage.

 

Have a hair transplant for a scar by a specialist

Because scar tissue can be so different in composition, thick and stiff or thin and fragile, it is important to have a hair transplant for a scar carried out by a specialist in this field. The technique involved in the hair transplantation for a thick and stiff scar is completely different for a scar that is thin and vulnerable.

 

Which places / scars are possible?

When hair is transplanted for a scar, most people may think of a place on the hairy head that was caused by an accident. But other locations and causes are possible where a hair transplant of a scar can also take place.

For example, consider a place on a hairy head that is caused by skin cancer. Or a scar on an eyebrow caused by whatever cause.

 

Hair transplantation to a scar, how does eClinic do it?

At eClinic the doctor will examine the scar tissue. The structure of the scar tissue but also the thickness of the skin is examined. These two things determines which technique will have to be applied to the scar. The cause of the scar will also be asked. This is important to prepare the proper treatment for you.

Sometimes it is necessary to provide the scar area with phased hair. This is because scar tissue contains fewer blood vessels than normal tissue. The hairs that are replaced during the first treatment must be provided with sufficient energy to be able to grow well again. The skin must also be able to recover normally. It is better to achieve a nice end result with two treatments.
