Hair restoration products such as shampoos, sprays, and conditioners generally suit patients with mild hair loss. Nonetheless, they remain valuable treatments following hair transplantation procedures as they promote a high survival rate of hair grafts.
The Importance of Post-Transplant Hair Restoration Products
In the first ten days, it is a sacrosanct rule to avoid any friction or pressure on the transplanted site to promote a high survival rate of hair grafts. According to one study, a meticulously performed hair transplantation (combined with proper postop care) resulted in a 92 percent survivability rate.
Aside from promoting a high survival rate, specially formulated products can help relieve common post-op discomfort such as itching and inflammation. Some post-transplant products, meanwhile, work by gently removing the scabs, which further promote a high survival rate.
While getting rid of scabs provides auspicious benefits, never attempt to pick at them as you may inadvertently pull out a follicle. A good rule of thumb is to avoid or at least minimize physical contact with the transplanted site for about ten days or depending on our doctor’s instructions.
Hair Restoration Products for Mild Hair Loss
Meanwhile, people with mild hair loss may skip hair transplantation surgery altogether by using specially-formulated products that improve blood circulation and infuse the scalp with nutrients known to promote hair growth. The team at Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery recommends different products that you can use in the comfort of your home.
Hair Transplant for More Severe Hair Loss
Hair restoration techniques such as NeoGraft® and strip grafting are reserved for patients with more severe hair loss. In general, good candidates are healthy individuals with a viable donor site, which is typically the back of the head (for some reason, this area is highly resistant to male pattern baldness).
