Hair Transplant Aftercare Tips

Aftercare of your hair transplant is just as important to the success of your new hair growth as the actual transplant procedure itself. So, to help you on your way, here are some important tips to ensure the best aftercare for your hair transplant.

  1. Sleep with your head elevated – it is advisable to be cautious when it comes to sleeping. Of course, getting as much as possible is beneficial for the healing process, but make sure you avoid sleeping on your tummy or side as it could add stress to the transplant area. Keeping your head elevated will help reduce any swelling, too.
  1. Don’t drive for 24 hours after your hair transplant – if you’ve been sedated as part of your hair transplant procedure, you’ll need to let someone else do the driving so as to allow any residual sedatives to leave your body.
  1. Avoid strenuous exercise – you need to keep your heart rate and blood pressure low post treatment, so any rigorous exercise needs to be avoided. A brisk walk or a little yoga are great options for healthy exercise you can do during your hair transplant aftercare period.
  1. Abstain from alcohol for five days post-treatment – alcohol is dehydrating and can also raise your blood pressure levels so it’s important that you steer clear of it.
  1. Don’t wear a hat – during your FUE hair transplant aftercare, make sure not to wear any headgear. It could rub on the hair transplant area and cause unwanted stress to your new implants.
  1. Drink plenty of water – water is an essential part of your FUE hair transplant aftercare. Drink plenty pre-op and post-op and you’ll aid your recovery and ensure you are best placed for ensuring you get the best out of the whole process.
  1. Avoid the sun – one of the best aftercare for hair transplant tips there is, is to avoid the sun. The sun can penetrate to deep layers of your skin and epidermis, so it’s vital to avoid it while you’re healing. Two weeks post-treatment is a good amount of time to stay out of it, and when you are ready to get back in the sun, make sure you apply a high SPF sun cream to your scalp.
