Hair transplantation is a simple medical procedure as it does not involve any risk or complications that cause problems for the patient, but at the same time requires the efficiency and experience of the doctor. What a doctor does when doing a hair transplant is simply the transfer of hair follicles strong from the donor area and implanted in areas suffering from baldness. This causes the hair to change slightly, leading to immune reactions that sometimes cause blisters, redness and some other side effects that vary from patient to patient. These pimples are the most important side effects that occur temporarily after hair transplantation and vary in shape, type and how to treat depending on the nature of the patient’s body.
How do pimples exist after hair transplantation?
After the hair transplantation, the surface cells of the scalp undergo a regeneration stage until they become adapted with new implanted hair follicles, The immune system’s resistance to unusual new bodies (hair follicles) stimulates this regeneration process and the hair follicles at this stage are temporarily inactive until they are effectively attached to the scalp cells. In many cases, however, cell regeneration occurs excessively and superfluously, leading in some ways to the formation and spread of pimples in some cases.
The common causes of these pimples after hair transplantation can be summarized in 5 reasons:
1 – the reaction of the immune system because of the presence of unusual bodies
2 – The place of the operation did not clean well according to the doctor’s instructions, making the scalp vulnerable to infection.
3 – exposure to harmful weather factors such as dust, heat and humidity.
4- The growth of the implanted hair and subcutaneous it under the skin lead to the appearance of pimples.
5 – a temporary defect causes a continuous increase in the secretions of the sebaceous glands due to their closure around the hair follicles.
