I had a strip procedure done almost 3 months ago. My scalp is still a bit pink. I was wondering two things. How long can it take for the pinkness to go away? And is it alright for me to go to a tanning salon or sun bathing?
Pinkness in the recipient area is often gone by 3 months. You and your doctor may want to treat this area with some limited steroids topically, but it should be done under the control of your doctor. Tanning with the pinkness present is probably not a good idea at this time.
