After Care

Itching is a sign of healing and it is completely normal to feel a few days after the operation. Do not scratch or pick at the cultivated area. Itching may continue for a week.
Numbness may occur for a short period of time after transplant operation. It returns to normal in three weeks but sometimes it can take 2 to 6 weeks. It takes some time to recover and get full sensation after your operation. The lack of sensation will decrease and go away over a period of time with the regeneration of the sensory nerves.
There can be a burning sensation in the recipient and the donor areas after hair transplant for 2-4 days which is quite tolerable.
While applying the instructions and suggestions given by your doctor after the hair transplant, don't forget that; what you eat also will help the healthy growth and strengthening of the new hair follicles. In this process, being careful about nutrition will increase the rate of cell regeneration and will help to shorten the recovery time after hair transplant.
A haircut with scissors is allowed after a month, but you should not use a razor at least for four months.
Finasteride (Propecia) both reduces the DHT level by about 70% and increases the testosterone level by 9%. It is recommended to use Finasteride (Propecia) for a year to protect and strengthen the existing hair after a hair transplant operation. Using specific medications for a successful hair transplant is critical to get a satisfactory result.
"How long should you wait to dye your hair after a hair transplant?” is a common question among patients. While it is possible to dye the hair after a hair transplant, it is important to wait several weeks because newly implanted hair follicles are sensitive. Harsh dyes can interfere with their growth during the recovery. It is recommended that patients wait at least four to six months, or until the scalp has completely healed, before dying the hair.
It is recommended that you put cold compress or ice after a hair transplant on the donor or the recipient areas. Keep the ice pack at least one inch away from the frontal hairline where grafts were placed. Begin using ice packs immediately after the surgery and continue for the next 5 days. Putting ice around the transplanted area, such as on the forehead or on the donor area, makes you feel better. The application of ice bags on the forehead area and face can reduce swelling. Be careful not to get too close to the implanted area while applying the ice pack.
At the end of the first 4 months, a razor can be used after hair transplant. 0 (zero) number head should be used as the scalp is still sensitive. A haircut with scissors is allowed after a month, but you should not use a razor at least for four months.
A burning sensation may occur, especially in the donor area, four days after the operation. In this case, it is recommended that you only apply the moisturizing lotion three or four times a day to your donor site and wait for it to be absorbed.
