The importance of using treatments following hair transplants

While a transplant can replace hair that you’ve lost already, it’s important to do as much as possible to maximise the aesthetic results from your transplant. That means considering treating your native/non-transplanted hair. Whilst transplanted hair is permanent and should not fall subject to male pattern hair loss, you can still lose your native hair so it’s important to protect what you have. 

The best way to approach looking after your native & transplanted hair, is by taking the traditional clinically proven hair loss treatments of Finasteride and Minoxidil. Ideally taken in tablet for Finasteride and topically for Minoxidil, there is a topical combination spray for those not suited to oral Finasteride. Taken together, these offer the best change of maintaining your hair. 

Oral Finasteride Tablet

If the spray might not be for you, then the oral finasteride tablet might be the answer. Whilst helping in a similar way to the spray in the fact that they both block the production the DHT hormone, the oral tablet might be seen as a simpler solution in comparison to the spray. Finasteride is an FDA-approved medication, so you can take this solution following your transplant safely.

Combination Spray

The combination spray at Sons gives your hair a healthy boost and ensures that your hair follicles are stronger than ever. The combination spray combines a DHT blocker and a minoxidil solution and is medically proven to slow down the loss of hair as well as restrengthen the hair follicles.


In addition, Biotin can be useful to encourage your transplanted hairs to grow faster. Coupled with Minoxidil which improves blood supply to the scalp and can help transplanted hairs bed in as well as possible, these will give your transplanted follicles the best chance to flourish and give you the best aesthetic outcome. 

Biotin is a vitamin that is more of a preventative hair loss treatment. Saying this, biotin is proven to help strengthen the protein Keratin, ensuring that hair gets stronger after taking this vitamin. It is useful to take this supplement following a transplant as it can help strengthen your new hair, doubling down on the effectiveness of your transplant. Biotin's main plus is that it is used to promote stronger hair and maintain hair growth, so it is a safe bet to take following a successful hair transplant.
