A very common question that we get from a lot of patients is how they can treat the newly transplanted hairs that have started to grow in the once-balding area of the scalp.
When considering a hair loss treatment, one of the main motivating factors that a patient has in mind is to get back to a certain look. Most people enjoy trying out new hairstyles and being able to style their hair however they want after they have had a hair transplant.
After a hair transplant procedure with the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, patients are provided with post-op instructions that detail how they can take care of the transplant area for the first week post-op. For example, a patient should not rub the transplanted area for the initial 7 to 10 days because that is the most crucial time for the transplanted follicles to take hold. This includes making sure that you avoid any direct shower pressure to the area as well as combing or blow drying for the first week.
