FUE Maintenance

What to do after your hair loss cure procedure – how to maintain results

Maintain Hair Transplant Results

You’re one step closer to a hair loss cure when choosing an FUE hair transplant in New Jersey.

This procedure can transform your appearance and bring back your confidence along with a youthful, revitalized look. The cost of a hair transplant is well worth the long term, permanent results achieved, but you want to do everything you can to hold on to your optimal hair loss cure results and boost your new hair growth. We want to help you protect this investment and see the best possible results you can as well; read on to find out how.

What should you do to ensure an excellent ‘take rate’ immediately post hair transplant?

After a New Jersey hair transplant procedure, patients will be provided with post-operative instructions regarding careful handling of incisions, scalp washing and activities to avoid. Unlike the old strip graft hair transplants of the past which left patients with a long, linear incision and painful wound after surgery, today’s micro-surgery FUE techniques do not involve painful incisions, stitches, staples or scars. You will have tiny hair graft sites to care for, however, and preventing damage or infection is key in the crucial 7-10 immediate post-procedure healing phase. Shortly after your transplant, you may shower with gentle water pressure as instructed by your surgeon. Direct pressure on the scalp, rubbing, forceful water pressure or shampooing needs to wait until after that delicate first phase. During the most crucial time for newly transplanted follicles to take root and thrive, you don’t want to disturb them in any way. Don’t worry, before long you will certainly be able to wash, style and run your fingers through your real, healthy hair.

Minor swelling of the scalp and sensitivity are expected within the first few days after a hair transplant surgery. If you happen to have very sensitive skin or a history of skin allergies, keep a close eye out for rashes or increased skin sensitivity and redness and then let your surgeon know right away if you have any concerns.

Though your micro-incisions are tiny and hard to see, until they are totally healed they still provide a window for potential infection. For this reason, as well, we advise against swimming, hot tubs and baths since submersion in dirty water poses a high infection risk. Your hair loss surgeon will let you know when it’s safe to go back in the water!

Post-procedure products – what to put on

Topical camouflaging agents such as Toppik fibres can be applied 2 to 3 weeks post-procedure if you wish. Avoid applying anything product-wise except for the medical-grade, approved scalp care products provided by The New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic, because harsh ingredients applied to inflamed or open skin can cause big issues and jeopardize your healing.

An individual’s age, their gender, their pattern of hair loss and the cause for their hair loss are key pieces of information that a skilled and experienced hair loss specialist will need to properly evaluate before recommending a solution. If your surgeon does not spend time physically examining your scalp and assessing your existing hair, this is a red flag that they may not have the in-depth knowledge you want.

You will want to take care of hygiene in the days and weeks following your procedure, without damaging the hair or irritating your scalp. The Copper K aftercare package includes 3 high-quality hair and scalp care products specially designed to soothe and nourish the scalp after a hair transplant procedure. Your specialized hair care kit includes a Calming scalp spray to manage itching, a safe and sensitive spray-on shampoo designed for hair transplant healing and a nourishing scalp cream to safely accelerate shedding of scalp scabs and keep the area moist. The very best scalp and hair care products prevent further hair loss, encourage new hair growth and help the scalp to heal.

Supplements

Can I count on my hair transplant results to be permanent?

We hope you’ve been taking care of your overall health, diet and exercise to keep your body in great shape and your vitamin/nutrient levels where they should be. Today’s advanced, effective FUE hair transplant techniques can provide longer-lasting success rates than ever before, but you can ensure optimal results through your daily habits.

The SmartGraft® and NeoGraft® hair transplant devices are designed to preserve and transfer more viable grafts than previously possible and deliver an impressive take rate of 90% or higher. While some hair thinning over a long period of time is realistic to expect, your results are considered to be permanent and after full thickness grows in at the 1-year mark, you can enjoy your hair for many years.

Long term maintenance

Down the road, some patients will return to our clinic for additional “touch up” hairline filling or overall refreshing of their hair transplant results. You can probably expect to undergo a second procedure at some point in your life, especially if you are on the younger side when you choose to undergo your first hair loss cure procedure. Genetic hair loss can be unpredictable. Though the newly transplanted hair will grow continually if it is genetically programmed to grow, the natural growth cycle of hairs and variance between individuals means that each transplanted hair, once established, should continue to grow for a lifetime with no limit, but the non-transplanted, native hairs surrounding the graft may continue to thin and shed over time. In order to prevent uneven hair growth after a hair transplant, many hair transplant specialists will advise using topical hair loss prevention medication such as Minoxidil or oral Finasteride. These hair loss solutions help to stop hair loss in original hairs.

At the New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic, we want to set you up for success, so we will offer you everything you need to be informed about options and choose a customized, effective plan that suits you. Our approach is to not only see you get your confidence back with a new hairline, but help you keep it and enjoy it for many years to come. Contact us today and get started.

After Hair Loss Cure – Do’s & Don’t s

We do know that certain nutrients, vitamins and an overall healthy body help support glowing, supple hair and skin as well, so there are a few smart steps you can take to keep that hair growing thick and shiny for many years to come.

  • Don’t smoke. Please don’t. Aside from all the other destructive chemicals cigarettes contain, nicotine has a huge effect on your circulation because it shrinks blood vessels and strangles blood flow to key areas like the scalp and hair follicles. Not only is it important that you avoid nicotine in the early post-hair transplant phase, but in the long run, good circulation will carry oxygen and nutrients to all the right places in your body if you don’t impair the process using nicotine. Talk to your primary care provider about safe, nicotine-free ways to quit. Now is the best time to complete your youthful transformation by feeling as great again on the inside as you look on the outside!
  • Washing. You can also ensure longevity for hair grafts and prevent excessive hair shedding by washing, styling and managing your hair carefully. The transplanted hair will retain the genetic characteristics that the donor site provided such as resistance to DHT and hair fallout, but you may want to take extra steps such as replacing your brush with a wide-tooth comb to prevent any unnecessary hair breakage or pulling. If possible, avoid the use of heat styling such as hot blow-dryers which can damage and dry out skin on the scalp. Gently towel hair off and air dry it. We recommend that you continue to select high-quality shampoo and conditioner for your new head of hair and this means avoiding sulfates, silicone, and parabens which can strip essential oils, clog pores and wreak havoc on hair cuticles. Talk to your hair restoration specialist at The New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic about fabulous, nourishing hair growth products and specialized cleaning products we recommend.
  • Vitamins. Our hair restoration specialists recommend that you eat foods rich in vitamin A, B, C, and E, as well as iron, omega-3 fatty acids and zinc. Commonly, anemia leads to poor hair quality and growth, and other key nutrients can be missing if an individual follows a restricted diet or otherwise avoids certain key nutrients. A lack of protein can also negatively affect hair growth and dehydration not only means your skin won’t look its best, but lots of fresh water is required to flush toxins from your body. There are some herbal and mineral supplements which have proven beneficial for circulation and hair growth but talk to your primary care physician about safe options for you to ensure that you are doing what is best for your overall health and beware of mystery pills that claim to be a hair loss cure.
  • De-stress! Self-care is key. Did you know that stress is a major contributing factor in some types of hair loss? Telogen effluvium describes a temporary condition involving gradual or sudden hair loss due to various health factors- including stress. A traumatic emotional event, physical stress experiences such as illness or surgery, and constant, chronic stress can all negatively affect the hair on your head. A complex cascade of hormonal changes results from stress reactions and the effects are far more physical than people realize. The great news about telogen effluvium type hair loss is that it is typically temporary. You will want to do everything you can to protect your beautiful new head of hair though- of course you don’t want to lose any hairs to stress! Taking time to unwind, meditate and exercise can be difficult for busy professionals living a fast-paced life and working in high-stress career environments, but for the sake of your health, learning how to de-stress more often is not only going to improve how you feel and think, but improve your appearance too.
