As a "bonus", this technique often gives a certain pigmentation around the inhaled hair-skin grafts. The reason is also that the graft is not subjected to compression, and in addition we push the grafts a little deeper so that they are level with the skin surface. Then the conditions are good for some of the pigment-forming cells - melanocytes - in the skin part of the graft to survive.
Scars in the scalp can be for a variety of reasons, for example due to accidents or surgical treatments. Such scars can be treated in a traditional manner, that is with scar tissue, possibly preceded by balloon insertion to reduce tightness, thereby improving the prospect of a new, thinner scarring line. But our technique is not applied in public care. We have treated patients who have been referred to NHC from a plastic surgery clinic several times. It has been estimated that this in many cases is the cost-effective solution for patient and health care.
