FUE heat. Any suggestions?

I have to work in Arizona where the heat is up to 110°. Would this be a problem for healing from an FEU and could this level of heat harm the grafts

FUE heat. Any suggestions?

Thank you for posting your question. After a FUE procedure, you want to make sure your scalp is nice and clean and avoid any unnnesesary sweating since you will not be able to use your fingers to clean your grafted sites. After 2 or 3 weeks, once you resume your normal activities and washes, your grafts will be completely safe. Just make sure you clean your scalp after a long warm day. Hope this helps.

Hot climate

Once you are fully healed and there are no crusts on your recipient area, the heat should not be a problem other than from your comfort point of view
