There is no scar cream after FUE surgery. You will always have a scar after any surgery.
There is no special scar cream after FUE surgery. You will always have a scar after any surgery. Scar creams are generally marketed to flatten scars but they don't always work as advertised.
Scar cream to use after FUE to minimize scars
What we recommend and provide our patients to use after their FUE procedures is a topical antibiotic ointment like bacitracin. But the secret to invisible scars is really the punch size employed. With punches smaller or equal to .9 mm the healed scars should not be visible to the naked eye.
All the best,

Scarring from FUEU
Unfortunately, the scarring from 4200 FUE grafts can not be changed. No cream that I know of will help reduce this scarring.
