When Will The New Hair Grow?
Whether using the FUT or FUE method, hair plugs will contain 1-3 follicles on average and a tiny portion of the surrounding scalp tissue. The supporting, living material that surrounds each follicle helps to ensure that it grows where it’s placed. Extra caution and delicate handling meanthat just the right amount of tissue comes with a graft and the bulb of the hair root is not damaged. Once implanted, angiogenesis triggers small blood vessels to connect and feed the root. Tissue heals,and the follicle begins growing in place. The hair inside, however, often falls out within the first few weeks. That can be an unexpected part of the process for many patients and leads to unnecessary concern.
When you’ve waited several weeks and even seen some of your new hair fall out again, it may be tempting to feel discouraged, but hang in there- you’re well on your way to restored locks. Your new follicle grafts should be firmly in place and healing by 10 days post-procedure,and the follicles will have already started producing newhairs deep inside. Folliclesentera dormant stagewhen disrupted or shocked, which is why sudden hair fallout is often called‘shock loss.’ Rest assured, after a brief resting phase, new hairs begin to grow in and show up around threemonths post-procedure. Because the hair grows at a rate of about 1 cm per month, the time between month 3 and 9 months is critical for thick, healthy hair to establish. If you’re ready to pack a little patience, you can have satisfying and dramatic hair restoration results just like so many of our happy clients.
