FUE Post-Op Redness and The Use of Minoxidil

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I recently had a FUE procedure done in Ankara, Turkey. I am 45 days post-op now and am still experiencing some slight redness on my scalp. The scabs and swelling are gone now. The post-op instructions said to begin Minoxidil Foam after 30 days of the procedure. I am wondering if it is okay to use the Minoxidil while my scalp is still slightly pinkish? Wondering if anyone else has used Minoxidil while the scalp is still has discoloration?

If it were me, I would wait until the redness dissipated...minoxidil products have many alcohol based derivates added and they can potentially make the recipient areas even more red.
