minoxidil Post Fue for hair growth?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm 9 days post op from having a fue to restore my frontal hair line. I've read different things that minoxidil can help hair growth in the transplanted area. If this is true what is the best type of minoxidil to use? I've never used it before. I believe it comes in drops or foam and which one would be best. 

Also since most of my scabs are now gone but there is pink / redness will minoxidil effect this?

Most minoxidil formulations have alcohol in them, which will inflame the scalp and could adversely affect your grafts.  I would stay away from it for a while.

Generally, most surgeons advise patients to stop minoxidil for a few weeks, until the grafts have shed. I would give it some more time before taking minoxidil.

Did your clinic provide you written post-op care instructions?

They should address everything from shampooing, protecting your grafts from sun exposure, removal of crusts, use of minoxidil, etc.
