Through my own experience; shaving my head after a hair transplant is extremely frustrating and can be crippling. I have spent years trying to reverse the scarring that I have sustained due to two FUT hair transplants.
Not only am I contending with the strip scar in the back of my head but I also had raised, red, spongy skin on the recipient site where the grafts were placed in my hairline.
I have exhausted all my viable options to help achieve the least amount of scarring to include, laser resurfacing, micro-needling, fibroblast, two scar revisions, FUE into the strip scar and I even took a tattoo pen and micro needled the hairline area with a dragging method.
I am fortunate that I have achieved pretty outstanding results.
Micro-needling, Fibroblast and even going so far as to drag a needle through the scared area with a tattoo pen are all inexpensive options you can do at home.
For the purpose of this article I want to touch on Fibroblast. This is an inexpensive device that you can purchase on Amazon Amazon.com: AMZGIRL Portable Beauty Equipment Skin Tag Remover pen,Multi Speed Level Adjustable Home Usage,skin tag removal device USB Charging -Gold : Beauty & Personal Care. Fibroblast devices are typically used by Estheticians to help build new collagen in the skin to help tighten and get rid of wrinkles. https://youtu.be/ot_2tuwRR2U
This at home option can take the place of expensive laser treatments. Be prepared to use a numbing cream as you are creating small burns on the surface of your skin.
