The secrets of hair density after hair transplant
There are a lot of things you can do to get denser results, however, here are the few secrets that all hair transplant surgeons swear by:
Proper aftercare – There may not be anything that contributes to achieving good hair density as much as proper aftercare does. Therefore, to achieve a good hair density you have to follow the aftercare instructions very seriously. The better you would take care of your recently treated area, the faster it would heal, and the more hair grafts would survive and the better the chances of it leading to better hair density.
The hair transplant aftercare is simple, you would be asked to spray saline on the recently treated area a few hours after the surgery, show up for clean up on the suggested time, avoid shampooing for a few hours to one or two days, and take part in sweat-producing activities. There can be a bunch more aftercare instructions as well. Whatever the aftercare instructions are, be consistent in following them to get dense hair.
Medication – Some medicines such as minoxidil are quite helpful in giving the desired outcome. It is usually not necessary to take any medication after a hair transplant. However, if you want to get more dense results, it becomes mandatory to stimulate hair growth this way.
It is generally not recommended to start consuming minoxidil immediately after hair transplant surgery. The best time to begin the minoxidil journey is 2 weeks after the hair transplant and it should be continued until the desired results are achieved. Minoxidil can also be taken to maintain the results as well. If you plan on taking the said medicine to maintain the recently achieved results, reduce the dosage a little.
PRP or platelet-rich plasma is an all-natural remedy that has been proven to accelerate hair growth. It is also one sure way to improve and maintain hair density after a hair transplant as well. The said all-natural therapy assists by improving follicle vascularization and inhibiting apoptosis. PRP takes a while to show results, usually one to four months. However, it never disappoints the person getting it to grow denser hair after a hair transplant.
Healthy diet – One can not emphasize enough the importance of a healthy diet in producing denser results. The more vitamins and minerals you consume, the easier it would get to achieve the goal. Make sure what you eat is rich in iron, biotin, zinc, and vitamins C, A, and B. Avoid junk food, add more meat, beans, nuts, seeds, eggs, leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits to your diet. The results would surely amaze you.
Stress management – The first few months after the hair transplant are crucial as the hair needs to grow. It’s a well-known fact that stress causes hair loss and decreases the hair density. Therefore, it’s the need of the hour to manage stress to get the desired outcome.
Scalp massage – It is not proven yet whether scalp massage truly helps with achieving hair density after a hair transplant or not. However, there is no harm in trying it at all. This practice improves blood circulation, and provides nutrients and oxygen the hair needs for growth. Once the scalp is properly healed, you should get a scalp massage two times a day. If by doing the scalp massage desired hair density is not achieved, it would speed up the hair growth process.
To achieve hair density after a hair transplant, you have to follow the aftercare seriously, use medication such as minoxidil, get PRP therapy, eat healthy, manage stress, and do the scalp massage twice a day.
