Thank you for your question. Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated, 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

your scalp is very red at this point it should have settled down. you will have lost the majority of the transplanted hairs as that is what normally happens from a transplant. I would not recommend using a combination of oils or anything to your scalp until you have been evaluated by a hair restoration surgeon near you if you are not able to get to the doctor who did your procedure, there is concern for infection just from the photos and you need to be evaluated.
