We recommend that you avoid swimming for at least 14 days after your procedure but this will depend on how strenuous your swimming activity will be, and the type of water that you will be swimming in. When swimming in salt water you should wait until any scabs have fully healed and of course, protect your scalp from excessive sun exposure. If you are swimming in chlorinated water then we recommend being a bit more cautious and waiting anywhere from 2 weeks to a month as the chlorine has the potential to damage any unhealed hair grafts so waiting until they are fully healed will reduce this risk
