FUE Hair Implants – results timeline

When you think of hair implants / transplants to restore your hairline, one of the most important things you need to know is, when can you expect to see results? This FUE hair replacement timeline will help break it down for you.

Our hair often plays an important role in our sense of identity, particularly given the emphasis society places on having a thick head of hair. In health and beauty-conscious New Jersey, hair loss can be a very concerning problem for men or women as young as 20, with 2 out of every 3 men reporting hair loss or baldness in their lifetime and up to 50% of women experiencing hair thinning as well. For men in particular, thick hair is associated with virility, health, youth, and success. As a result, male pattern baldness or thinning hair can negatively impact a man’s self-esteem and self-image, which in turn may affect his relationships and career prospects.

In the past, surgical treatment options promised a hair loss cure, but delivered disappointing and lackluster results which resulted in a long, linear scar at the back of the head where donor grafts were sourced. Previous hair implant / transplant surgery options also required a long recovery and discomfort during healing.

Finally, exciting advancements in hair transplant technology have led to the development of HARRTS – sophisticated Follicular Unit Extraction treatment options which delivers natural-looking and permanent hair restoration. At the New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic, we are proud to offer HARRTS, the hair loss industry’s most efficient, minimally invasive hair transplant procedure developed by physicians, medical scientists, and engineers. If you’re considering a FUE hair implant in New Jersey to help reverse hair loss and restore your confidence, you may be wondering how long it will take to see the fully restored hair growth and natural-looking head of hair you’ve been dreaming of.

How long does the New Jersey FUE hair replacement Procedure Take?

In most cases, the hair transplant procedure itself lasts between 5 to 6 hours while individual hair grafts are meticulously harvested using the Smart Handpiece. Donor follicles located at the back or sides of the head are typically resistant to DHT and will prove to have good staying power where they are grafted in. The patient will regrow thick, luscious locks in previously sparse areas but unfortunately, some patience is required. Due to the natural hair growth cycles which all hairs revolve through, an expected, “shock loss” phase in the first month will often be concerning for the patient but is completely normal and temporary.

The newest leading-edge technology utilized by the HARRTS means that hair implants / transplantation itself is now faster than ever and yields a higher, “take” rate due to careful handling of grafts during the procedure. Patients relax comfortably listening to music or watching television during the time it takes to painlessly transfer the hairs. Harvesting can now be completed 33% faster than with other, similar FUE devices. The speed of the device also ensures greater results, as the time the follicles await implantation is minimized considerably.

When is it appropriate to seek treatment?

Many clients suffering from male pattern baldness are curious about when the right time to seek treatment is. Because male hair loss is often a gradual process which can first appear as young as age 20, a hair transplant is often not the first solution that they will look to. Unfortunately, hair loss medications can have varying efficacy or lead to unwanted side effects, and many topical treatments or hair loss vitamins marketed as a balding cure, do not in fact, regrow hair. The truth is that in many cases, fees for an effective, safe and permanent hair restoration procedure will be money well spent on a long-term investment.

Whether you are just beginning to notice thinning hair, have a receding hairline, or bald spots, FUE is a safe hair transplant option for patients of all ages who are hoping to reverse hair loss and regrow hair. 25% of males experience thinning hair in their early twenties, while approximately two-thirds of men are bald or balding by the age of sixty. Thus, a hair transplant is a viable and popular procedure for men of all ages. HARRTS is particularly well-suited to individuals who wear their hair short and do not want to have physical limitations or hair style restrictions after the procedure. This is great news for men who are seeking a virtually scar-less hair transplant option. The best way to determine your candidacy for hair implants is to schedule a consultation with a member of our expert team.

How Long?

FUE Timeline

Day 1-2

The healing process begins immediately post-procedure. The following morning it is safe to remove the bandage from the donor area. Patients may experience some minor swelling, bleeding or scabbing during this time, however, this is expected and should not be a cause for concern. Extra care should be taken around the transplant areas and grafts to ensure that they are firmly planted, therefore, no direct pressure or friction is advised at that time.

Day 3-7

Approximately three days following your New Jersey hair replacement with FUE, swelling may still be present, however, patients can begin to wash their hair gently, or utilize a spray on shampoo, dry and style as usual. In most cases, by 5-7 seven days post-procedure, the swelling has completely dissipated.

Day 7-14

So that you can be sure the majority of your transplanted hair grafts successfully take, you will be advised to avoid applying direct pressure to the scalp and not disturb small scabs that may form. These are an expected part of the healing process and will slough off on their own over time as the hair is washed. Until the micro-incision sites are completely healed, your plastic surgeon will advise you to avoid swimming, hot tubs and other unnecessary exposure to bacteria.

Wk. 2-6

This procedure yields incredibly natural looking results; however, it is important to recognize that before the final outcome is visible, the transplanted hair must first cycle through the natural stages of hair growth. As a result, shedding is expected for the first two to six weeks following this hair restoration procedure. During this intermediate phase, hair roots begin to collapse, which can result in hair fall out, however, this is a natural and expected part of the recovery and not cause for alarm. The follicle will remain healthy and established as it awaits growth of a new hair. As the hair transitions from Catagen stage to the Telogen or resting phase, patients will continue to experience shedding for up to three months, but for some people, exciting new hair growth can be seen as early as three months after transplant!

3-6 Mths.

Approximately three months following the NJ hair transplant treatment, patients will begin to notice new hair growth, as they enter the Anagen phase of the hair cycle. New hairs will begin to appear in the transplant site and the outcome of the procedure will gradually become more evident. You may notice changes to hair texture or growth direction initially, but over time the thickness, pattern and style of the new hair will settle in. It is important to be patient throughout the process, as a thick head of hair cannot be achieved overnight.

9-14 Mths.

While new growth can be evident as soon as three months postoperative, in many cases, it can take nine to fourteen months to see full, final hair thickness. In most cases, the final outcome is visible after one year, however, each patient’s experience will differ and, of course, your healthy new hair will continue to grow.

Are hair implants / transplants results long lasting?

While it may take up to a year to see the final results, our satisfied clients find that the hair transplant results are well worth the wait.

Those who opt to undergo a HARRTS hair restoration procedure will achieve long-lasting results that look and feel natural. Because the transplanted hair maintains the genetic characteristics present at the donor site, in most cases it will not be susceptible to future hair loss, even when it is relocated to an area of the scalp with low density. Seeing real hair growth in areas which were bald or thinning, can dramatically improve a person’s appearance while simultaneously boosting their self-esteem. Any man who has watched his hair gradually thin out, knows the dramatic change to appearance that a head of hair can make. Now, you can have it back with a virtually scar-less, fast and effective hair implant / transplant surgery at the New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic.

Although genetic male pattern baldness is extremely common and not reversible through diet or lifestyle changes, you do not have to continue suffering just because it is in your DNA. At the New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic, we understand how troubling hair loss can be, which is why we have dedicated our practice to helping clients restore their own natural, thick and youthful-looking hair. During your private consultation, we will walk you through the HARRTS hair transplant process and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

How long should I wait before my next procedure?

For many people, one, effective hair loss session is enough. For optimal results, it is important to ensure that you allow yourself sufficient time to heal before undergoing a second procedure if you choose to do so. In most cases, it is recommended that you wait one year to add additional density to the same treatment area. Treatment of a different area, such as the frontal hairline after previously treating the crown, can be scheduled 4-6 months later.
