The below question was asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums and answered by “California”, patient advisor for recommended hair restoration surgeon Dr.Tejinder Bhatti:
Has anybody used aloe vera and applied it on the hair transplant recipient area during the recovery period post-op? I was wondering particularly if using aloe vera (gel or spray?) would help with the scabbing and redness on the recipient area (and to a lesser extent the donor area)?
Yes, aloe vera is known to have a soothing effect in the recipient area. Dr. Tejinder Bhatti recommends it to his hair transplant patients. Please see the post-op instruction video below for more information.
