The day of the intervention, we will give you all the exact instructions. If you have any doubts, please contact us and we will give you the instructions to follow.
Washing is important to avoid crusting around the hair shaft. The scabs adhere to the hair shaft and increase the risk of losing the hair follicles during the first 7 to 10 days after the intervention.
Approximately 45 minutes before washing the scalp, apply the moisturising and softening lotion on the recipient area. Afterwards, you can relax for 45 minutes in order for the moisturising lotion to penetrate the scalp. After 45 minutes, apply our neutral shampoo (without removing the moisturising lotion).
Moisturizing lotion: Bepanthol lotion or Excipial hydro lotion.
Neutral shampoo: Sebamed shampoo or any baby shampoo.
Both the lotion and the shampoo will be delivered to you the day of the operation, so you will not have to worry about anything.
After 7 or 10 days, no one will notice that you have gone through a hair transplant.
The result of the hair transplant is permanent. Any subsequent hair loss is likely to be only from the untreated areas. Some patients choose to use medications to delay the loss, while others plan another subsequent transplant to cope with this eventuality.
For certain patients, we can recommend using 5% Minoxidil lotion after the transplant to increase the result. If you already used this treatment before the transplant, you have to wait 10 days to resume the treatment after the intervention.
It may also be advisable, in some cases, to take Finasteride 1g / day if there is still enough native hair, in order to stop the fall. You will be able to resume this treatment 10 days after the operation.
The doctor will be the one to tell you if you need any of these treatments.
The hair transplant is a cosmetic surgery and requires a preparation before the intervention and also a post-operative treatment. That is why it is necessary to follow rigorously each and every one of the steps that the doctor prescribes before, but above all after carrying out the intervention.
However, beyond these priority recommendations, there are other tips that were recommended by some of the patients that have previously gone through the hair transplant experience and that we have gathered for you to consider.
Beyond these tips, the most important thing in any case is to listen to each and every one of the instructions given by the doctor.
