Asking about when to start treatment to keep existing hair after FUE.
Doctor Answers 7
Every doctor's answer to that question will be slightly different, so you should just ask yours about it. But generally Biotin and Finasteride are fine to start taking again the day after (you don't usually even have to skip a day with them), and for Minoxidil wait 2+ weeks, when all scabs/crusts are gone.
It is best to ask your doctor for medication options and post operative care. There is no right answer and every doctor is diff

you can certainly start biotin immediately after FUE. I have found viviscal to give a better result than biotin personally, but ask your hair surgeon what their personal preference is as they may have better results with other supplements. In regards to minoxidil, I usually tell my patients to wait until the crusting is off from the recipient sites - this may be anywhere from 5 to 10 days after the procedure. In regards to finasteride the same. I suggest you contact your hair clinic's doc and see what their personal preferences are post operatively, as everyone has their own particular care which works best for them. I know I am very specific with how and when people are allowed to do certain things depending on what "milestones" they reach - but that is also how I manage to get the results that I want! Best of luck. I hope some of this helps.
