Improving Healing After Hair Transplant

Does Emu Oil Aid in Wound Healing After A Hair TransplantQ:

What do you think about applying Emu oil or distilled witch hazel to the healing areas to help soothe and speed up healing process; (apply from seven/eight days post-op). Distilled witch hazel helps with redness?

A:

There is no evidence to show emu oil, witch hazel or other commercially available oils can help healing after hair transplantation.  Using the shampoo that we recommend and provide for use after hair transplant is the best thing you can do to minimize the scabs maintaining a proper environment for the hair grafts to grow.
