The aim of this study was to identify the usefulness of micropigmentation as a technique for alopecia and scalp scar camouflage in Korean patients.
Micropigmentation was performed in 43 Korean patients from November 2011 to October 2012. There were 23 female patients with female pattern hair loss (FPHL), 14 male patients with male pattern baldness, and 6 patients with scalp scars.
The results for one patient with FPHL Ludwig stage I were satisfactory according to the physician’s assessment, but the patient was dissatisfied because she did not notice any remarkable changes after the procedure. The results for the other 42 patients were highly satisfactory and there were no adverse effects or complications.
Micropigmentation appears to be a good method for camouflaging hair loss and scalp scars.
