In the first few days after the treatment, scabs will form on the transplantation area. After about 7-10 days, these scabs should come off unaided, and often, hairs will detach with them. This is a natural process. The hair roots are weakened after the operation by a reduced oxygen supply, and the transplanted hairs which will fall out. Since the hair roots are only weakened but not damaged, they will produce strong hairs again, which will be visible after about 4 to 12 months. We point out that in some cases, in densification treatments, nearby hairs can fall out as well, and will also be visible after a similar period (postoperative Shockloss).
Please note – All scabs should be removed 2 weeks after the procedure!
In case they do not come off unaided, it is advisable to take a long shower to moisturize the scabs and to put a hydrating lotion (Aloe Vera or Bepanthen, Nivea-Lotion) on the recipient area, leave it to soak for half an hour, if possible under a plastic shower cap, and try to remove the scabs by firmly rubbing during the shampoo. Repeat this every day until all scabs are removed.
