What you experience is very common to this period of time, you have nothing to worry about.
one thing I noticed from my procedure,the less you think and worried about it, the better.
Some patients heal fast and some slower,3 weeks is still to early to completely heal,give it some more time,if after 2-4 month the redness will still occur,then you will have to give us a call.

actually, you want any transplanted hairs that are not growing to come out.

after grafting the hairs appear to grow for a short period of time. then they stop this elongation process an simply stay on the top of the skin. these are now foreign bodies. you want to remove these. if they stay in place, they will eventually form a cyst. this cyst will become red, tender, and need to be popped. it is better to remove the non-growing hair filaments than pop cysts.

these can also be removed by gentlely pinching them between your finger and thumb and then applying upward pressure to pluck them out. if they come easily, they are not growing and need to come out. if they do not come out easily, simply release your grip and let the hair stay. it is a growing hair.

the redness is uncommon in the donor area, but very common in the recipient area. it will fade in about 3 months. you can apply a topical makeup such as foundation or a tanning spray to conceal it if you like. redness is due to increased blood flow to help the area heal. it is more likely that the area is pink rather than red.

only about 10% of the hair usually stays after a transplant. most temporarily falls out. lets hope you are one of the lucky ones who retains more than 10%. some keep almost 100%. wouldn't that be great.
