Hair transplants in a scar
“A young man came to us 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, that place was clearly visible to others and he was therefore 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 needs.
Scar tissue is often stiffer, whiter and structures have disappeared, including hair follicles. When one has a scar on a hairy head, it is often a place where no hair follicle can be found anymore. Because of this, such a place often stands out. This also has to do with the color of the skin that is usually whiter than elsewhere.
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 extra vulnerable to damage.

Hair transplant in a scar, how does eClinic do it?

These two things determines which technique will have to be applied in the scar. The cause of the scar will also be asked. This is necessary to prepare a good treatment plan for you.
Sometimes it is necessary to provide the scar with phased hair. This is because scar tissue contains fewer blood vessels than normal tissue.
