Fact: Most people are not in a situation in which they can avoid being in public soon after their hair transplant procedure. A common question that we answer at PAI is what can someone due to mask the redness caused by their hair transplant. First and foremost, a little redness does not mean that there is an infection. Fortunately, people asking themselves this question have a plethora of options and we will discuss a few of them in this article.
The most often used way to conceal the redness is to use foundation to blend the redness into your skin color. Practically any woman alive can give you a hand with this technique and if the foundation is applied properly, it can be very difficult to detect. If you don’t want to ask for help, then take a look at the following websites for tips:
If you are interested in trying some other products to conceal the redness on the scalp after the procedure, you could use a tinted lotion compound like Couvre and/or you could use Toppik or Caboki to help fill in the hair around the area. These products do not hamper the ability of your hair transplants to grow.
Our last suggestion is to use a scarf or a hat, as long as they are very clean. As with any broken skin, you will want to avoid contact with anything that is full of germs in order to avoid an infection.
