Why you need minoxidil after your Hair Transplant

Why you need minoxidil after your Hair Transplant

A Hair Transplant is a hair loss treatment for those who are in the late stage of pattern baldness. This is the logical step for anyone who is at the stage where their follicles have been sealed shut. This happens only after you have thinning in that area for quite some time and your follicles did not get the help they need while they were shrinking. Because if you start treating hair loss in the first four stages you can use prescription medication like topical minoxidil, finasteride or natural DHT Blockers to fix it and reverse the hair thinning.  

So what happens in a hair transplant?

Hair transplant is a surgical or invasive procedure that involves taking hair follicles from a donor area and implanting them in an area where the follicles have died. Before the surgery donor area is trimmed and given local anaesthesia. Hair from the donor area is hair that is not affected by DHT and therefore healthy. So when it grows in the new site it looks like thick and natural hair which reduces scalp visibility. While hair transplants in the past looked unnatural due to the hair plus methods, these days the latest methodology is known as FUE. In this procedure units of one to four hair are extracted from the donor area using a medical device and then transplanted to the affected area. The advantage of this procedure is that it doesn't leave large a surgical scar. The other breakthrough method is FUT in which strips of hair from the back of the scalp are transplanted in the affected area. The advantage of this procedure is that the transplanted hair has a higher rate of survival.  

It is very important that your transplant is performed by a skilled surgeon to ensure there are no complications and a successful and natural-looking hair transplant. Hair transplant is not a miracle, it takes weeks for the surgical site to heal and months for the hair to grow. But they cannot grow on their own. 

What can I do to ensure that my hair transplant is successful and the hair that grows is thicker?

If you are genetically susceptible to pattern hair loss it means that DHT will keep affecting your hair follicles and will eventually cause them to shrink or fall. Therefore, it is important to use minoxidil to prevent hair loss and aid the growth of thick and healthy hair. Topical minoxidil and finasteride are both safe to be applied to the transplanted area. It is best to start using it a few weeks after any initial redness or inflammation after the surgery has gone down. Not only does using minoxidil prevent hair loss but it also ensures that the hair grows faster than it would on its own. Because minoxidil helps usher in and elongate the anagen or growth phase of your hair. If your hair loss has underlying causes it would be best to get them in control to ensure there is no increase in hair fall after transplant. You can take the Traya free hair diagnosis test to find out your internal triggers.
