Have you heard of scalp camouflaging products like Hair Fibers or Toppik?

Toronto hair transplant patients are often familiar with hair thickening products, special shampoos and hairpieces used to combat balding. These temporary hair fibre products are sold in hair transplant clinics and high-end salons. They’re designed to create the illusion of hair thickness and density while making the scalp less visible. Tiny fibres and pigmented material stick to the hair strands and scalp wherever they’re applied. The product can be washed out, so it must be reapplied for daily use.

If you’re planning a hair transplant with FUT or FUE in Toronto, you’ll need to know what’s safe and what’s not permitted in the immediate post-op phase. For clients who are accustomed to using hair thickening products regularly, it’s essential to be aware of their restriction post-op.

What happens during FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction surgery is minimally invasive, and less traumatic for the scalp than past FUT options. No long piece of the scalp will be excised to create grafts. Instead individual, tiny punch extractions containing hair follicles will be removed one-by-one. They’re harvested from naturally dense growth areas at the back and sides of the head. These small follicle units include between 1 to 5 hairs on average and will be strategically placed into shallow slits at the recipient site.

How fast will you heal?

Even though FUE in Toronto offers a rapid recovery and minimal risks, you’ll still have a few restrictions placed on activity and scalp contact while you heal. That means for roughly 7 to 10 days, regular washing must wait. You’ll be advised to carefully rinse the scalp with clean water, not to scrub, rub or shampoo as usual.

Because the application of styling products or topical fibres need to be washed out, they’re not permitted during the first weeks. Additionally, until the small incisions close, they’re prone to infection and irritation. Only clean water can be applied, and any medications your surgeon advises.

Luckily, the FUE openings often close fast- within a few days. Small scabs form and slough off between 5 to 7 days. You’ll attend follow up appointments for assessment after FUE in Toronto. When your surgeon tells you that your scalp is healed, you’ll be able to resume styling and applying your hair products again.

What can you do while healing?

We recommend that those who are self-conscious about hiding their scalp during healing take a couple of weeks off work or work from home. You can undoubtedly return much earlier, and many people resume daily work and social activities after only 3 to 5 days, but if total discretion is your aim, take as long as you can.

You may choose to wear a soft hat to hide and protect the delicate healing grafts for a couple of weeks.

We recommend cutting your hair quite short before your FUE treatment to reduce the contrast between treated and untreated areas. When your new hairs start to grow in at just 3 to 4 months, they’ll blend in well with hair that is short overall.

Because you’ve invested financial resources and time into your hair restoration, it’s critical that you follow all your instructions and take extra precautions in those first few weeks. Attend your post-operative appointments and ask lots of questions.

Patiently awaiting new hairs to grow in can be the most frustrating aspect of a hair transplant. FUE surgeons often recommend adjunctive treatments to improve healing and boost new hair growth. These include PRP and laser light therapies for hair.

Talk to the experts at the Hair Institute about what you can expect from your FUE recovery process, and how to make it as rewarding as possible.
