Scalp Injections Post OP

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I'm about 9 months post op, would scalp injections i.e. PRP, corticosteroid or thymosin beta 4 harm the grafts, even though they've long since been secure?

Other than PRP, why are you considering having these other injections?

Echoing Gill, what is your rationale for these additional shots? Have you been advised to try this?

I've been considering TB-500 because I got great results from it before I ventured into a hair transplant, and I think it'd help with maintenance and even bolster the results nicely

 

I'd appreciate an answer to my question though: Would scalp injections of something other than PRP harm the grafts 9 months op?

 

Dr. Charles: Do you mean to say that although you don't necessarily advise it, 12 - 15 months post OP there's no risk of harming the grafts with something other than PRP injections?
