Everyone’s growth is different but everybody gets good results.
Many people will see growth by 6 months, however, 12 months is more likely. There is no technique or magical potion that speeds up hair growth – believe us, we would be the first to have it.
This is one of our patients before his FUE procedure. All the hair on the top of his head is very thin and does not cover his scalp even when it is fully grown.
You can still see most of the hairs we transferred at one month’s time. The treatment area looks like stubble with mild redness of the skin.
Most hairs have fallen out. Hair growth is a one-way cycle. Before hair grows back, it must shed. This is called telogen effluvium and this phase lasts 3-6 months.
We are starting to see growth of new hairs but they are few and thin. This is when good hair cuts can help blend your new hairs in.
Even more hair has grown and it is also thicker. Notice how this patient’s hair cut perfectly blends his early results in with the rest of his hair.
All your hairs have come in, however they can appear thin and curly. The hairs still have to grow to length.
Your hair will thicken, straighten and appear more moisturized, however it still has to grow to the length you want it. Expect your hair to grow one inch a month.
How long should I expect my hair’s regrowth and recovery process to take after my hair transplant procedure?
The time it takes for your hair to fully recover and return to its natural state varies from patient to patient. Depending on the nature of the procedure, some patients may experience a more rapid recovery than others. In general, though, you should begin to see results within a few weeks of your treatment.
How quickly should you expect visible results after my hair replacement procedure?
That depends on the type of procedure you’ve had and your own hair growth cycle. Some patients may see results as soon as the next day, while others will need up to a few months before they can see any change.
