This hair loss question was answered by Dr. Robert True of New York, NY who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians. His professional answer is below.
I had a hair transplant 2 weeks ago and my scalp is still red. Is this normal?
For hair loss patients with medium to darker complexions, pinkness or redness of the scalp following hair restoration suture removal is rarely an issue. However for fair complexion patients, a visible pinkness may persist for 3 to 6 weeks and for a small percentage of these patients, even 2 -4 months.
Hypoallergenic flesh toner concealer cosmetic can be used to safely hide the pinkness. The doctor may also prescribe a cortisone cream to speed resolution.
