View Full Version : photodamage

Hey, I have read that photodamaged skin can disrupt growth in transplanted hair. One year ago the top of my head and temples were burnt and were affected for a few months with blistering, mild puss and little bumps. Now my skin has repaired completely, with no signs of the damage, after using bio-oil for a few more months. Could this have any affect on the results at all if I were to get surgery in that area? Thanks

As long as the skin has completely healed and has returned to its normal pigmentation there should be no negetive effects on the transplanted follicles.
The only thing that can have long term effects in the recipient area is scarring, which can effect the blood supply to that area.
