Any moment is good to have your hair back and stop hair loss. Many patients come to ilahy worried because they want to have capillary micro-graft but they are told in summer you can’t have it and you have to wait till winter.
The intervention is quick, so the patient can go back home on the same day. It is recommended to come always with someone because of the administration of drugs that can cause sleepiness.
It takes between 3 and 5 hours and a half and it is only used local anaesthetics. The capillary implant hair doesn’t need any special care. You should treat it in a natural way, as the rest of your hair.
Spring and summer can be perfect seasons to perform the capillary transplant if you follow the correct indications. In only one month you can enjoy summer in a normal way and showing the hair that you always desired that will give you security and confidence.
Which indications do I have to follow in summer?
- You have to protect your hair from the sun. Avoid the sun directly in your hair. The best way to protect it is to use a cap, a hat or a light scarf from the third week on. Avoid central hours of the day, when is hotter and very sunny.
- Avoid swimming in the pool or the sea. The salt and chlorine can have counterproductive effects so the first month you have to forget about dipping, so the micro-graft has the optimal effect.
- You should reduce as much as possible alcohol and smoking. After the capillary surgery you have to moderate the intake of these products because it doesn’t have to influence on the healing process of the implants. Also it is recommended to not take alcohol or stimulating drinks from 3 days before the intervention.
- To not make pressure on the head, , during the first 15 days we don’t advice the use of helmets..
