Hey dr. How are you on this fine day ?
i was just wondering on your opinion on using toppik to camouflage a transplant scar so buzzing hair down to a number 1 would be an option with the addition of the use of a trichophytic closure. would this be a viable route for someone who appreciates short hair?
I am fine. Thank you for asking.
Some people use Toppik, DermMatch, black marker, or even permanent tattooing with reasonable results. I am not sure if you already have a linear scar or are thinking of having a hair transplant and worried about a scar, but really, successfully camouflaging a scar on the scalp all depends on the scar itself. If the scar is wide (despite a trichophytic closure) a number 1 clipper haircut may still show it somewhat.
