FUE hair transplant technique advantages
Five thousand grafts can be transplanted, thanks to the FUE hair transplant technique. With FUE, since each hair follicle is removed individually with a special medical device (micro motor), no incision is made on the scalp. Thus, there is no scarring and bleeding in the hair transplantation process. And after the operation, there is no scar on the scalp. Since no incision is made, the patient is not dressed.
If the FUE hair transplant is done correctly, barely noticeable white spots can be seen even with a short haircut. These white spots gradually begin to disappear. Since no incision is applied in the FUE hair transplant technique, the treated area for hair transplantation heals quickly. In addition, there is no scar in moustache, eyebrow and beard transplantation thanks to FUE.
When will the hair grow after FUE hair transplantation?
Itching and inflammation may occur in the first 15 days. Also, small crusts appear that can fall off spontaneously. These scabs are itchy, and you should never remove them with these crusts (If the crusting lasts longer, tell your doctor.) Some or all of the transplanted hair may fall out between the 3rd week and two months. This hair loss is normal; you don’t have to worry. After the third month, when the hair follicles adapt, new hair begins to grow (approximately 1 cm per month). After the 6th month, the hair continues to grow stronger. Within 12-18 months, a completely natural appearance is achieved.
What should be paid attention to in FUE hair transplantation?
The first day after hair transplantation is essential. After the hair transplant, you can wash your hair professionally in our clip. Washing your hair professionally will not harm your hair follicles. Drink plenty of fluids the day after hair transplantation and stay away from strenuous activities. And sleep on your back, use a small hard pillow.
Do not use detergent-containing shampoos after hair transplantation. These shampoos damage and kill your hair follicles. You can use shampoos containing natural oils instead of detergent-containing shampoos. Thus, you can nourish your hair follicles and make your hair grow more natural and lusher.
After the hair transplant, wash your hair with a gentle massage with your finger and palm. And you should wash your hair with lukewarm water. The most crucial point is that you should not wash your hair every day. It is best to wash your hair every two days.
Do not use a blow dryer to dry your hair after hair transplantation. You can dry your hair by using a soft towel instead of a blow dryer.
Avoid sweating, especially in the first week. Heavy sports can make your scalp sweat. If you make your scalp sweat, your hair follicles may be damaged, and your hair follicles may die.
After the hair transplant, you should keep your hair away from very hot and very cold environments. Such extreme weather conditions can damage your scalp. You can wear a hat to protect from sun rays.
Avoid irregular diet, which is one of the biggest causes of hair loss. Provide your vitamin balance by eating regularly. Just as our body needs vitamins, hair follicles need vitamins. You can support your hair follicles by eating regularly. You should maintain your vitamin balance by consuming foods containing especially A, B, C and D vitamins.
