Most people see the hair transplant procedures as the least and the safest procedures in the world. However, that is not true. A hair follicle is the smallest organ in the body and each of them should be harvested with the utmost care. Each of these hair follicles may react differently to the procedure, some may temporarily fall out, while some may even get infected. Infections are actually rare but there is always the chance of infection when it comes to getting an invasive aesthetic procedure. Since there are thousands of organs are involved in an invasive aesthetic procedure, the hair transplant healing may take longer than expected.
There are several factors that may affect hair transplant healing in terms of time and success. Most of these factors are generally associated with the aftercare taken by the hair transplant candidates. Some people can be extra careful during the recovery time while some are not. Most failure cases are associated with physical interferences to the transplanted hair before it has healed itself. Pulling the hair follicles, even touching them may cause some complications during the recovery.
What To Do During Hair Transplant Healing
The first two weeks after the hair transplant is the most important one when you need to be extra careful about certain things. For example, you should not have sex during the first two weeks of your recovery. You can not guarantee that you and your partner will not interfere with your hair follicles, so it is for your own best not to have sex during this time.
Consider your situation a quarantine, it is good for you not to go outside during the first two weeks because you may expose yourself to the sunlight which is very dangerous to your hair follicles. Sunlight may endanger the success of the hair transplant with the Xrays and ultraviolets included in it. If you are to go outside, you should wear a hat to prevent your scalp from any external damage like sunlight.
