How long can one expect to have red skin the recipient area (hairline) after a FUE? What is your experiences ?

Thanks in advance for sharing

It will depend.  If you are fair-skinned, it will take a bit longer because of the contrast.  Even after 3 months I've seen it linger.  Most patients, however, 4-6 weeks post op.  One thing to remember, you can put some foundation after 10 days or just let it be.

Usually redness dissipates around a month post-op. However, I have seen redness take up to 4-5 months. Generally, fair skinned individuals have lingering redness.


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

I still have slight pinkness and I am just past 5 months.  Hoping it will be completely gone by month 6.
