How Can I Help My Hair Transplant Donor Scar to Heal?

11/12/2010 5:11:10 AM

Question:

Is is okay to apply Mederma scar cream on the donor area after a hair transplant? Will it affect the surrounding hairs? What other creams do you suggest are good to aid healing and fade the pink scar?

Answer:

Mederma is perfectly safe for use on your donor area and will not negatively affect surrounding hairs. Many experts also recommend vitamin E oil. Witch hazel is also said to help reduce redness.
