How long after a hair transplant until I can use a steam room / sauna? And how about a tanning salon? Thanks
You should address any post operative questions with your doctor, as each doctor has their own recommendations. In general, most patients can resume normal activities in two to three weeks after a hair transplant surgery — including a sauna.
Tanning salons are not generally recommended for health benefits and high dose UV rays can potentially discolor skin during the healing process, which can take up to 6 months. This does not mean you have to keep out of the sun, just use a sun blocker.
