Minoxidil on the newly transplanted hair

Recommended Posts

hey, I had HT about 40 days ago.

I have started to use minoxidil on the transplanted area after 23 days.

had anyone done that and live to tell about it?

is it safe?

the doctor says it is ok. also online doctor says it is ok and can speed up the growth prosses. but i red a lot in the forum, that it can damage the HT hair.

any thoughts?

I started with oral minox for the first 3 months then switched to foam

alcohol and pg may bad on the hair graft which have not yet a strong blood supply that is why i used oral at first

I believe Minox helped me getting fast growth by month 4

Hi TempleRunner,

It is safe for you to use Minoxidil and it is recommended by surgeons worldwide to help give a boost to newly implanted hair grafts.

The recent discussion in the link below may be of some interest to you.

All the best

Thank you!

I read that sometimes minoxidil may cause shedding of the HT hair, is it based? 

My clinic did not instruct me to take minoxidil. the Dr said that if I want to use it, I can use the foam after 1 month and liquid after 6 months (because liquid has a higher chance to cause redness).

I started applying it at around 2.5 months. It's hard to say if its made any difference as hair is slowly regrowing anyway during this time.
