Choose your new beardline
There are many different shapes when you look at facial hair growth, it is of course up to you how you will grow your new mustache/beard. After your beard transplant, everything is possible again!
The shape of the beard line is entirely up to you to decide. The doctor will of course share his expertise in this with you. A natural beard line often has no straight or sharp lines, you can always achieve this by shaving. The placement of the beard line and the shape are very important, because this together ensures the shape of your face.
Some opt for a straight beard line, while others prefer the line higher and rounder. This is done so that one has the ability to shave a straight line while maintaining the ability to get a more natural look.
When will I see results?
In the first period after the beard transplant, something unnatural will happen to you, your transplanted hair may fall out. This is nothing to worry about and has absolutely no impact on the final result. It doesn’t have to happen to you, but the chances are high. The hair loss, also called shock fall, starts approximately from day 15 after treatment until the end of the second month.
In the third month after your beard transplant, nothing much happens. From the end of the third month, new hairs begin to grow every day. At the end of month seven after your beard transplant you will see about 85 to 90% of the result. Then, in the eighth to twelfth month, the hair continues to grow and new hairs are added all the time. After 12 to 14 months you will actually see your results, it was worth the wait!
However, it is important that you keep in mind that the description above is an example, not everyone is the same, so not everyone will have the same process. This is nothing to worry about, but if in doubt you can always contact us.

Hair follicles can be implanted directly by means of the DHI implanter. No incisions are made in the receiving area. For this reason, there is hardly any bleeding during the implantation, the damage to the skin is minimized, you have less chance of swelling and the recovery period is shorter. A higher graft density per square centimeter can also be achieved with this hair transplant method and the implanter guarantees full control and safety over the direction, angle and depth of the implanted grafts.

When can I shave my beard again?
It is important that you do not shave your transplanted hair for the first 6 months after the treatment. During this time, you can trim the transplanted hairs with scissors.

Can I go out in the sun after my beard transplant?
Protect your receiving area from sunlight for 10 days. For example, you can use an umbrella for protection. It is imperative that your receiving area does not burn.
