After Hair Transplant Care

after hair transplant The vulnerable recipient area, that is, the transplanted area, should be protected from the sun and shampooing can be started 2 days after the application.

However, we recommend that you always pay attention to the statements of the transplanting doctor and follow the recommendations of the care products after the hair transplant.

The first shampooing after hair transplantation is extremely important for shaping the hair area and cleaning the tissue residues. For this reason, it is very important that the first shampooing after the hair transplant is done by the hair transplant team at the transplant center.

After an average of 1 week, the wounds begin to crust over and most of the time, the crusts adhere to the hair shaft. If you move, scratch, or rub this crusting on your hair during this period, you may damage the newly transplanted hair and cause the hair transplant to fail.

For this reason, we recommend that you do not touch your hair during the crusting period and that you get through this process, which will take a few days, calmly. In this process, it will be healthy in all respects to lie on your back in a position supported by a pillow.

Recovery After Hair Transplant

After two or three months, you will observe that new hair follicles are formed and begin to grow. After this process, your hair enters its normal course of growth. Your hair will grow normally within 8 months.

This condition, known as "shock shedding", is usually temporary and common. Fifty to 100 strands of hair a day can be shed during this process. It is extremely common to even result in a patchy appearance that looks bald.

After this process, which we come after hair transplantation, only the hair that has not been transplanted, that is, in its area, is shedding.

All subsequent hair loss is likely to occur in untreated areas. To deal with this possibility and delay such losses, you can try PRP and similar applications.

Complications such as swelling and edema can be observed in areas such as the scalp or forehead after hair transplantation. After the application, the hairband, which is worn towards the forehead, is applied to alleviate this situation.

If this becomes irritating, you can consult your doctor about medication supplementation after hair transplantation.

It is useful to remind again, while the hair follicles are growing in the area where they came from, they may itch. Rubbing and scratching destructively can damage the transferred roots.

Using some hair transplant care products can relieve your itching. You can get product advice from your hair transplant doctor.
