Redness ins recipient area at one month
When I see a patient with redness ins recipient area at one month, I may prescribe a topical steroid. Ask your doctor about it
Residual redness following FUE
Redness in the recipient zone following a hair transplant procedure will generally resolve in 10-14 days. Persistent redness may be due to normal post-surgical healing, but may also represent an inflammatory process such as seborrheic dermatitis or acne and occasional an infection. I would recommend to follow up with your physician for an evaluation. Sometimes a topical steroid or an antibiotic may be indicated.

Time, my friend. The steroids will probably help the most. Skip the witch hazel. For some patients the redness lasts months - it just depends on the patient's skin type. It will go away with time, though.Good Luck!
Redness after hair transplant
Reducing redness after FUE
Great question. Looks like you had a good session with fair bit of dense packing, which is leading to your troubles. Microneedling with platelet rich plasma at the time of surgery as well as between 4-6 weeks out has been demonstrated in the literature to decrease the amount of redness you have on your recipient area. Its not a miracle cure - but it does improve how quickly you get back up on your feet. Remember, everyone is a little different in their healing. And while techniques in implantation vary, some people just take longer than others in completely healing. Best of luck.
