Preparing for an FUE Hair Transplant with the Artas Robot or NeoGraft at Thrive Medspa and Wellness

At Thrive Medspa and Wellness in Downtown Honolulu, we specialize in providing individualized, customized treatments to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. If you’re considering an FUE hair transplant with advanced technologies like the Artas Robot or NeoGraft, proper preparation is essential for optimal results. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to prepare for your FUE hair transplant procedure.

Understanding FUE Hair Transplants

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair transplant technique that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor area and implanting them into areas experiencing hair thinning or loss. At Thrive Medspa and Wellness, we utilize state-of-the-art technologies such as the Artas Robot and NeoGraft to ensure precision, efficiency, and natural-looking results.

Why Choose the Artas Robot or NeoGraft?

Artas Robot: The Artas Robot uses advanced imaging and artificial intelligence to map the scalp, identify optimal donor follicles, and perform precise harvesting. This technology minimizes damage to surrounding tissues, reduces scarring, and accelerates the healing process. The Artas Robot is ideal for large cases of 1500 grafts or more. 

NeoGraft: NeoGraft combines automated technology with manual expertise to extract and implant hair follicles gently and efficiently. This technique ensures a high survival rate of transplanted follicles and promotes natural hair growth without leaving linear scars. The NeoGraft is perfect for smaller hair transplants or eyebrow transplants as well as the No Downtime Hair Transplant. 

Steps to Prepare for Your FUE Hair Transplant

1. Schedule a Consultation

The first step in preparing for your FUE hair transplant is to schedule a consultation with our experienced team at Thrive Medspa and Wellness. During this consultation, we will evaluate your hair loss, discuss your goals, and determine the best treatment plan for you.

2. Follow Pre-Procedure Guidelines

To ensure the best possible outcome, it’s important to follow these pre-procedure guidelines:

  • Avoid Blood Thinners: Refrain from taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, for at least a week before the procedure, as they can increase bleeding.
  • Stop Smoking and Alcohol Consumption: Smoking and alcohol can impair healing, so it’s recommended to avoid both for at least a week before and after the procedure.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your transplant to keep your body hydrated and promote optimal healing.
  • Avoid Hair Treatments: Do not use any hair treatments, such as coloring or perming, for at least two weeks before your procedure.

3. Plan for the Day of the Procedure

On the day of your FUE hair transplant, follow these steps to ensure a smooth experience:

  • Wear Comfortable Clothing: Opt for a button-down or loose-fitting shirt to avoid pulling clothing over your head after the procedure.
  • Eat a Healthy Breakfast: Have a light, healthy breakfast to maintain your energy levels during the procedure.
  • Arrange Transportation: Since you may receive a mild sedative during the procedure, arrange for someone to drive you home afterward.

4. Post-Procedure Care

After your FUE hair transplant, proper care is crucial for optimal healing and results. Follow these post-procedure guidelines:

  • Keep the Scalp Clean: Gently clean your scalp as instructed by your provider to prevent infection and promote healing.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activities: Refrain from vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for at least a week to avoid increased blood flow to the scalp.
  • Follow Medication Instructions: Take any prescribed medications, such as antibiotics or pain relievers, as directed to manage discomfort and prevent infection.
  • Attend Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments are essential to monitor your progress and address any concerns.
