I had a trichophytic closure performed on a scar just over a year ago. I think it is healing well but the area is still red not pink and some hairs have grown through accordingly but not nearly as much or what I was expecting especially after a year. Is it normal for the area to still be red? If the area is still pretty thin or still has bald areas can it still be improved? Thank you for your feedback.
Some patients have persistent redness at the donor scar area, even after one year. Follow up with your doctor and get a formal opinion. Sometimes the redness may subside over time (1-2 years).
