Preparation for hair transplantation with the ARTAS robot
Beforehand, we discuss with you which areas your donor hairs should be removed from. To ensure the best possible hair transplantation, the hairs in this area must have a length of one millimeter. Your hair should already be shortened in the days leading up to the procedure.
After the treatment, we will, of course, support you with all the information you need on the topics of care, restricted sports activities, and hairstyling.
Even a local anesthetic can affect your driving ability. For safety reasons, we recommend that you have someone to drive you after the treatment.
Hair care in the first week after the hair transplantation
The care of your scalp begins on the second day after the treatment. On the second and third day, carefully wash your head with lukewarm water.
In the first three days, you should be very careful when touching the transplanted area with your fingertips and fingernails.
On the fourth day, wash your hair with a medicinal shampoo.
For the fifth day, a rinse with lukewarm water will suffice.
From the sixth day, you can wash your hair with a neutral shampoo. For this, use an hazelnut-sized amount of shampoo and gently apply this with circular movements. Additionally, you can begin with the use of argan oil. This is softly dabbed on with the fingertips and promotes the healing process.
You should avoid using a hair dryer, hair straightener, and styling products in the first days. Let your hair air dry.
When combing, you should avoid going anywhere near the transplanted hair.
The use of styling products, heat effects or chemical treatments is again possible after agreement with your doctor.
Tips for home
In the case of pain, you may take an Ibuprofen 600mg tablet every four hours.
To keep the pressure on your head as low as possible, you should pay attention to the following:
Try to keep your head as upright as possible.
Please do not bend over.
Be careful when climbing into cars.
Do not tip your head downwards.
You should not scream or cough severely.
Only lightly blow your nose.
Avoid any sport.
Do not undertake any heavy physical labor.
Choose articles of clothing which do not have to be pulled over your head. You should not wear a hat or beanie in the first seven days.
Try to sleep on your back and keep your head slightly raised. In order to avoid contact with the treated area, we recommend using a neck roll cushion.
You can, of course, shower after the treatment. However, please avoid putting your head under the water and do not shower too long under water that is too hot.
The gentle cleansing of your scalp is first allowed on the second day.
Swelling can occur in the first days. To alleviate this, apply cool packs to the affected area. These cool packs should only be cooled in the fridge and never in the freezer.
A reddening or even a painful, hot feeling are clear signs of inflammation. If you notice this, contact us as quickly as possible.
Scabs can form in the first days after the procedure. These usually fall off by themselves. If hairs should also fall out with these, this is no cause for alarm. All hairs grow back within five months.
This can arise within the first days in the donor and transplantation areas. This is part of the healing process and is completely normal. However, please avoid scratching the healing area.
Alcohol and smoking
Both should be avoided as far as possible.
