Why Winter May Be the Best Time for a Hair Transplant

Nov 29, 2022

If you want a fuller head of hair by next summer, consider gifting yourself state-of-the-art hair restoration surgery with an ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, this season. While there are pros and cons to getting a hair transplant during any time of year, winter offers several unique benefits, like discreet recovery during the holiday season, and little risk of sunburn or sweat causing infection to the surgical site. Since hair thickness and fullness are noticeably improved after just six months following a transplant, your hair will be at its best in time for summer events, gatherings, and vacations if you act now.

The Benefits of Winter Hair Transplants

As with any hair transplant, ARTAS is a surgery that does require a few days of recovery. The wintertime and holiday season allow patients to discreetly recover from their transplant by remaining at home during the holidays or by wearing a hat when out of the house. Without the summer sun, there is little worry about sweat or sunburn leading to infection at the transplant site, which means a smoother recovery for the patient.

Typically, the results of a hair transplant are noticeable at six months and fully improved after a year. If you time your transplant effectively, you can reap the benefits of this surgery by summer or fall— just in time for wedding season, vacations, and other events where you want to look your best. Since your hair will have full results after a year, you are also protecting against next year’s fall and winter hair loss, two of the heaviest seasons of shedding.

Winter Hair Transplant


If you are considering a hair transplant this winter, gift yourself a state-of-the-art surgical experience through an ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant. ARTAS utilizes FUE (follicular unit extraction) through an advanced robotic technology that provides natural-looking results through a minimally invasive surgery. Because FUE transplants do not leave a linear scar, hair can be worn short and look completely natural. By using robotic technology, results also do not risk the factor of human error and fatigue that is typical of other hair transplants. ARTAS’ unique technology minimizes the length of recovery and discomfort, while also providing fast, effective, and natural looking results that continue to improve over time.

By choosing an ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant this winter, you can grow your best head of hair and look incredible in as little as six months. Winter is the perfect season to discreetly and safely undergo a transplant so you can feel like your most confident self by summer.
