Medication after your hair transplant

You will be given medication after your hair transplant to reduce the risk of swelling and infection.

It is important that you take the medication according to the instructions you received at your post-hair transplant consultation where we reviewed aftercare and medication.

Information sheet on medication
illustration-alvedon

Alvedon

Should you experience some headache after the procedure, you can take 1-2 Alvedon as needed for pain relief.

Avoid drugs such as Ipren, Treo or Aspirin for up to 48 hours after your hair transplant. They contain a substance called acetylsalicylic acid, which has a blood-thinning effect and increases the risk of bleeding.

If you have transplanted over an area that has no blood supply, such as a scar, we may instead give you Aspirin to stimulate the blood supply to that area to help the hair follicles to grow firmly.

Day 1: 1 pill in the clinic and 1 tablet in the evening
Day 2: 1 pill in the morning and evening
Day 3: 1 pill in the morning and evening

Frequently asked questions about medication

How long is the healing process after a hair transplant?

The most critical time is the first 2-3 days when the area is at its most sensitive. The first week you should be extra careful.

After 2 weeks it is okay to start practicing, but you should still be a little careful with the sun and be vigilant so that the transplanted hair is not scratched.

After 3 weeks, you can generally do most everyday things, but avoid things like kicking a football, wearing a helmet or shaving with a razor.

We are always on hand to answer questions about aftercare.

Which painkillers can I take after the procedure?

After your hair transplant, you can take 1-2 Alvedon for pain relief in case you feel any pain.

Avoid drugs such as Ipren, Treo or Aspirin for up to 48 hours after your hair transplant. They contain a substance called acetylsalicylic acid, which has a blood-thinning effect and increases the risk of bleeding. If you bleed too much after the procedure, the hair follicles have more difficulty growing back.

If you have transplanted over an area with no blood supply (e.g. a scar), we can give you Aspirin instead to stimulate the blood supply to that area and thus facilitate the hair follicles’ process of growing firmly.

Why should I take antibiotics after my transplant?

You will be given a low dose of antibiotics for the first 3 days after your hair transplant to reduce the risk of infection.

This is not a normal course of antibiotics and the dose is very low. A total of 4 pills are taken.
