Surgical complications in hair transplant procedures can pose significant challenges. Following a one-year post-operation follow-up, various complications were identified, including post-operation edema, pruritus, numbness, paraesthesia, bleeding, a wide donor scar, and sterile folliculitis. Successful hair transplant outcomes with minimal complications rely on effective communication between the patient and surgeon, thorough clinical and lab assessments, and the implementation of precise surgical techniques by a trained surgical team.
Understanding the pH levels for optimal scalp and hair health is crucial. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, where anything between 0-7 is acidic, 7 is neutral, and 7-14 is basic. The ideal pH for the scalp and hair is 5.5, slightly acidic due to the presence of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands along the hair shaft.
The concept of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) or scalp art dates back to ancient times, where crude methods involved creating superficial injuries on the skin’s surface using sharp objects and applying pigments from organic sources. However, due to aesthetic limitations, this practice was not widely adopted.
