Things to Avoid After a Hair Transplant Procedure

We at Clinic Effect are delighted to provide hair transplantation services because we feel that individuals of all ages should be confident and proud of their appearance.

When you return home following your hair transplant treatment, you must be aware of what you need to avoid. Continue reading to learn all you need to know about appropriate post-treatment care after having a hair transplant operation performed on you.

Pain After a Hair Transplant

Mild discomfort may be experienced for several days after the hair transplant process. Some patients have reported trouble sleeping during the first few days after surgery.

After the procedure, it is usual to have greater discomfort in the donor region than in the recipient area. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be used to alleviate the discomfort associated with a hair transplant procedure. At the clinic, you will be given a package of them.

Itching After a Hair Restoration

Itching is a relatively frequent sensation experienced after having a hair transplant. It may appear all over the scalp 7-14 days following the procedure.

In most situations, the itching indicates that the tissue is regenerating. In difficult situations, an antihistamine tablet might be used to alleviate the symptoms of the reaction.

Swelling After Hair Restoration

Swelling is uncommon when hair transplantation is done with the Choi Implanter Pen. Larger hair transplant surgeries and transplants with a lot of treatment done to the hairline are more likely to experience this.

Swelling may affect the forehead and the region around the eyes, and it can continue anywhere from two to five days, with the fourth day being the most severe.
