Redness in beard transplant

The redness should slowly go away and be gone in one - two months. Some people get more red than others.

Everyone heals differently. If you feel your healing and redness is not normal you need to see your doctor as soon as possible

Everyone heals differently.  If you feel your healing and redness is not normal you need to see your doctor as soon as possible as it may be a sign of infection (which you cannot diagnose with photos).

Redness after a beard transplantation

Redness and  spots will improve  in upcoming weeks. Keep in mind that  healing period of the skin may differ from patient to patient.In my practice I advice Topical Steroids to slow down such redness.

Redness after Beard Transplant

The redness will go away. You live in a very sunny part of the world and need to stay out of the sun or use a sun blocker so the collagen healing under the skin is protected from the damaging rays from the sun. That applies for the next 11 months. See pictures of my beard transplant patients below.

Beard redness post transplant

The answer depends on your skin!  In some patients the redness resolves pretty quickly, within a few weeks.  Other patients have it last longer - several months.  In either case, it always resolves and if you are concerned it is lasting longer than expected, give your original surgeon a call.
Good luck!
