Hello Ive noticed that after looking at dozens of FUE donor scars that Beard FUE scars have significantly less hypopigmentations that scalp FUE scars?
Is there a reason for this? Thanks
That’s a good question. Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer for sure.
On the scalp, I have seen patients with great (practically unnoticeable) FUE scars, as well as some not-so-great FUE scars. Of the few patients I’ve seen that had follicular unit extraction using beard hair, I’d agree that the FUE scars have been less detectable by way of discoloration when the graft is removed from the beard. I think the degree of scarring is based on the individual and their healing potential.
