Sun screen after a hair surgery

Using sunscreens after hair transplant procedure or a strip surgery should be started after two weeks following the hair transplant. procedure. Prior to this point, the scalp is still in the process of healing. Once the wounds have closed, at around fourteen days, it would be relatively safe to start using sunscreen lotion of at least an SPF 30Sunscreen acts as a protective barrier to prevent further complications after a hair restoration procedure.  Using sunscreens after Fue  hair transplant should be done on a daily basis, it would also be best to cover the head with some type of hat for stronger protection.

All the best

I actually recommend the use of sunscreen after a hair transplant as the grafts can get damaged from UV light
