Thank you for your question.

To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles.

Organic Hair Transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called “donor site” to bald or balding part of the body known as the “recipient site”. Grafts containing hair follicles that are obtained from genetically resistant to balding area transplanted to the bald scalp by latest minimally invasive technique. One of the most important reasons of the hair loss is the decreased quality of the scalp. Therefore to make the only transplantation would provide only a limited benefit without improving the quality of the scalp. In the “Organic Hair Transplantation”

Redness post hair transplant

You are probably noticing what is called shock loss of your native hair.  This is considered normal.  As for the redness, it is normal to experience this.  Over time, this will resolve.  Avoid sun exposure and consult your hair transplant physician should the redness not improve over the next 2 months.

Thank you for posting your question. 17 days post procedure, redness is very normal. Depending on the density used, some patients get some redness, others a bit more severe, and some not at all. There isn't much you can do at this point, and hopefully the redness subsides sooner than later. Try contacting your clinic that performed the procedure, to see if they can prescribe you a topical steroid lotion/cream. Hope this helps.

17 days after hair transplantation

It is normal to have a little redness and have hair fall out a few weeks after a hair transplantation. The actual follicle is still alive gaining a blood supply but the hair falls out. I let my patients trim their hair after 2 weeks but only your physician knows the right thing for you with your hair and the procedure YOU had done. After spending so much time and money, you don't want to risk any problems for a haircut. Best wishes!

1 month

seems like a lot but every clinic is a little different so you should follow what your doctor says. Things will vary if it is FUT vs FUE and neograft vs ARTAS.
