Hair Transplant Results After 1 Month
One month after your hair transplant, you will notice your scalp has gone through quite a few changes since your hair restoration journey began. Here we will explain exactly what recovery your scalp has gone through, what your hair looks like and what to expect at this stage.

Hair growth 1 Month after Hair Transplant
During the first month after your hair transplant, the transplanted hair follicles will be healing. Your body will be producing fibrin, which is what will hold the grafts in place.
The first week after your hair transplant is the most important. A nurse will examine your scalp, checking that there are no signs of infection and that everything looks good. The nurse will then wash your hair at the clinic, teaching you how to do it. The first week is when you will experience the worst of any pain or swelling you may suffer.
The recipient area will have significantly healed by Day 10 and the scabs will have started to fall off. Your hair will be experiencing “shock loss” and the transplanted hair will be falling out. Each hair follicle is unique, causing loss and regrowth at different times. This may create a “patchy” look.
By Week 3, scabbing has now gone and the majority of the traumatised transplanted hair has now fallen out while the hair follicles have rested. You are now in the telogen resting phase. During this phase, the hair follicle is completely at rest and the club hair is forming. Club hairs are the final product of hair growth and have a keratin (protein) bulb at the root tip of each strand.
The hair restoration process is a long one, and you will have experienced the most traumatic and stressful stage of the journey in the first month. Your scalp can now tolerate some light sunlight. It is recommended that you refrain from engaging in strenuous physical activity for at least four weeks after your operation. You should avoid gym work, swimming, cycling, tennis, golf, any heavy lifting or strenuous hill walking during this period. It is critical that you continue using the products to gently wash your hair and to follow your medical team’s advice to successfully achieve the desired results.
Effects from the surgery
Any pain and swelling that you may have experienced have now gone, and your scalp can now tolerate some sunlight. You may still experience some numbness as the nerve cells are still regenerating following the surgery.
At IdealofMeD, we use the Sapphire FUE and DHI techniques to do the hair transplant. Because of the sapphire bade used, you will experience less scarring than other methods used elsewhere and a lower chance of infection.
The factors influencing your hair transplant results after 1 month
The success of hair transplantation is determined by a number of factors. Although some of these factors are beyond your control, it is critical that they be taken into account when evaluating the success of your hair transplant after a month. The factors influencing your results at this point in the recovery process include:
- Consistent and quality aftercare.
- Additional treatments are designed to boost hair growth and recovery after the hair transplant.
- The quality and density of the donor hair before the hair transplantation procedure
- Your natural hair growth cycle.
- Your genetics, or traits that run through your family.
When you look in the mirror
Hairs are unique structures, and while some lose all contact with the follicles and fall out first, others may retain some thin connections and fall out later. Due to this, your hair may appear patchy in the recipient area as it has fallen out at different times. Hair shedding is normal and does not indicate that the scalp is rejecting the implanted hairs. The donor area will now see some growth.
If you had the Sapphire FUE method at IdealofMeD, your scalp has suffered less trauma than it would have using alternative transplant methods. Any redness you may have experienced in the recipient area has calmed down, and there is minimal redness in the area now. The hair which is being formed and almost ready to grow will do so at its natural angle.
Your healing would have been sped up thanks to the hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This could be up to 70% quicker than without it. If you opted for Mesotherapy, your scalp has received a boost of all the nutrients and vitamins necessary to encourage recovery. Mesotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts into the skin to rejuvenate it.
