Question:

I am 5 days out from hair replacement surgery and would like to know at what point I can start using toppik to conceal my hair loss and surgery?

Answer:

Congratulations on your recent hair transplant surgery and for joining the "real hair club for men". Using toppik, Dermatch, Couvre, or other concealers are perfectly acceptable after the first 2 weeks of surgery. This will give your transplanted hair a good chance to become deeply rooted in the scalp and for the wounds to heal and scabs to fall off. I have also heard that these concealers can help camouflage the donor scar, so this might be worth considering as well.
