Skin Discoloration after Hair Transplant Surgery: How Long Does it Last?

4/18/2012 3:19:44 AM

Question:

Would anyone please tell me how long it will take for the red triangular forehead area of the surgery to take on the normal color of the skin?

Answer:

The pinkish hue in the hair transplant recipient area can last for a few weeks to a few months. This is influenced by factors like the skin color and healing characteristics of the individual patient.

Most of the time, this can be easily camouflaged by growing the hair a little longer. You can also use hair loss concealers like Toppik or DermMatch to help disguise the discoloration.
