IS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION A PAINFUL PROCEDURE?
Due to the use of our needle free dermojet pre anaesthesia tool we can say that a Hair Transplant is a painless process. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic so you can enjoy the treatment pain free while listening to your favourite music while our medical team is restoring your hair back. Even after the procedure once the local anaesthetic has lost its effect you won’t feel any pain due to our optimized treatment protocol with A class medicines.

You can go back to your daily activities as soon as 48 hours after the procedure, however, rest is recommended for 5-7 days after the surgery.
WHEN CAN I START HAVING SEX AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
It is individual for each patient, there is no specific rule, but we recommend to wait for at least 2-3 days after the operation.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
The tiny hair that is transplanted during surgery normally falls out within one week. After this, the hair will grow normally from the root and you will begin to see noticeable results from approximately 12 weeks after treatment. If the surgeon is transplanting into a thinning area, this can occasionally cause temporary shedding of some existing nearby hair shafts – but these will regrow. You might notice that the transplanted hair is slightly frizzy in texture, but the follicles should settle down and start making better quality hair fibre after about 14 months.
