Laser cap use after hair transplant
Once all the crusts have been removed and the swelling /inflammation have receded, I would expect at 2 weeks time you are safe to use the laser cap. To reduce shock loss, it is advisable to start finasteride or minoxidil or both post procedure.
Using a Laser Cap after Hair Transplant
Excellent question! As you know, the focused, red-spectrum light used in laser cap devices increases the energy production around the hair follicles, waking cells from dormancy into an active growth phase, but Red Light Therapy has actually been shown to aid in general wound healing as well, by reducing inflammation and accelerating metabolic activity. I frequently recommend that patients use a laser cap device as an adjunct to topical and oral medications or immediately after a hair transplantation procedure to help speed their recovery. Using your laser cap as soon after your procedure as is comfortably possible will most likely be advantageous and help you achieve optimal results.
