After a hair transplant, we recommend taking care of your skin according to our tips. To make the process easier, below is a video with all the relevant information on post-operative care.

Postoperative instructions:

  • Spray the hair with sterile saline every 30 minutes for 3 days after treatment. 
  • The day after the procedure, remove the dressing and wash the area from which the hair was taken. Remember to wash your head gently with your fingertips.
  • Wash your head with gauze soaked in saline for two days after treatment.
  • On the fourth day after treatment, you can wash your entire head as instructed.
  • Avoid directing a strong jet of water directly at the head.
  • On the tenth day after the treatment, you can return to your regular routine and wash your head as you did before the treatment.
  • After shampooing, apply Minoxidil 5% to the entire upper scalp 2x daily for at least one year after treatment.


  • You may not be able to feel your scalp on the day of the procedure due to the local anaesthetic.
  • Be careful when getting in and out of the car to avoid hitting your head on the frame.
  • Instead of garments that are tucked in over the head, choose fastened garments.
