For many years now, we have transplanted hair from the neck to create a thicker and fuller beard. The principle is the same as with a regular hair transplant – we transfer hair from the neck using FUE technology. That is, we extract one hair at a time and plant it in the area where you want a denser beard.
In 3 to 4 months, the beard will have begun to grow and will appear denser. The maximum result is achieved after 12 months when the hair follicles have gained full growth speed and the hairs have reached full thickness.

Different beard lines and shapes
The beard line
The appearance of one’s beard line is entirely up to the individual to decide. A natural beard line often doesn’t have any straight or sharp lines; this is something you achieve through shaving. The shape of the beard and the placement of the beard line is very important as these together create the shape of your face.
Some choose to keep their beard line fairly straight, while others may place it slightly higher up with a softer shape. This is done so that one will have the option of shaving a straight line while maintaining the possibility of having a more natural look if one so chooses.
Things to consider when transplanting a beard
The hair at the back of the neck may sometimes have a different color than the beard; usually the beard is slightly darker.
In some cases, the shape of the hair may differ. For example, you may have a slightly curly beard while the hair on your head is straight. These differences must be reviewed before moving forward as this may have a major impact on the result. Therefore, we may need you to supply us with additional photos of your beard and donor area when you send your online consultation to us. If so, we will revert to you.
Once you’ve had your beard transplant, you cannot eat solid foods for 4 days. This is because the motion connected with chewing may damage the hair follicles.
PRP-aftertreatment to promote hair growth
PRP helps the hair follicle to start producing hair quicker after it’s been transferred from the neck and transplanted to the beard. It also stimulates the healing of the transplant area and makes the area heal faster. After a beard transplant, you can expect to see the end result after 12 months and PRP may speed up the process somewhat.
Frequently asked questions regarding beard transplants
Most men can go through a beard transplant. We will find out how many grafts (hair follicle groups) are needed during the consultation alongside with how large the area is to be covered and how much hair is already growing on the cheeks. We prefer taking hair from the back of the head but also from the chest if needed.
After a beard transplant, you can’t eat anything solid for the first four days. Instead, you get to drink soup through a straw. This is to avoid the newly transplanted hair follicles being damaged by the chewing you do when eating. After 4 days, the hair follicles have grown, and you can eat as usual again.
After 4 weeks you can start trimming the beard with a trimmer but no shorter than 3 mm. It is important that the trimmer has a plastic cover or a plastic comb on the razor. It is also important that you do not shave with a razor directly on the skin before 6 months have passed. Only after 6 months can you shave with a metal razor without risking damaging the transplanted hair follicles.
Since there are a lot of blood vessels, veins and other sensitive organs around that area, Nordic Hair Clinic does not perform these types of beard transplants. The risks involved are too high.
The hair transplanted from the back of the head does not grow back. The transplant itself means that the entire hair follicle from the back of the head is removed. When a transplant is well made, the difference between your normal hair and that which has been transplanted will not be very noticeable. You will not be completely hairless on the back of the head when you have done a hair transplant.
