What is the Process After Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?
The experts performing the operation inform the patient about what kind of process to expect and how to care for his hair. The more you follow the advice given by experts, the faster the recovery process will be after the procedure. When the procedure is completed, the patient is dressed with special dressing materials and the transplanted area is bandaged if the experts deem it necessary. The transplanted area of the patient remains in a bandage for approximately two days. It is important to avoid contact with water for two weeks after the procedure. When FUE is performed by expert teams, the success rate in terms of hair transplantation results is quite high.
In the FUE technique, the channels opened are opened towards the direction of the hair growth. These channels, which are opened with a special tool resembling a steel-tipped pen, are very small micro channels. After the procedure, crusting may occur in these channels. This crusting and shedding period heals almost completely within a week or ten days. Within 1-2 months after the procedure, the patient experiences a phase in which hair begins to fall out rapidly, also known as the shock shedding phase. Sometimes patients who experience the shock shedding phase may worry that the procedure will have a negative outcome. However, this situation is temporary, the shedding slows down over time and stops completely over time.
After this stage, it is seen that the hair starts to grow again. In the sixth month, new hair will grow to a large extent. Hair growth is almost complete within 1 year after the procedure. After the procedure, the patient is advised to use anti-hair loss and caring shampoos. In addition, the patient is advised to use vitamins and minerals that nourish the scalp.
