The process:

  • Your hair will start growing from very 1 st day of procedure and a little bit growth can be seen up-to 10 th Day post-procedure, a sign of successful transplant.
  • After 10 th Day your implanted hair may start falling which is called shedding phase (telogen effluvium) which is quite normal and this shedding will continue up-to completion of 2 nd month. All hair will not fall suddenly. You may lose few hair every day. You may return in pre procedure position but still need not to worry, it’s a good sign. All the implanted hair will start growing after 2 nd month.
  • Growth of the implanted hair remains very slow in 1 st year of transplantation. So, to see the results you have to wait at-least for minimum 6 months. Growth will not stop here and you can see further improvement up-to completion of 1 year. Results after 1 year will be final results.
