From experience, our clients with Androgenetic Alopecia achieve visible results usually within the first 3-4 months. The process of follicular miniaturisation occurs over the course of many years, thus rejuvenation of the follicles is not a quick process. Furthermore, existing catagen and telogen hairs (hair in the rest phase) will need to shed first before new healthier anagen hairs (hair in growth phase) grow.
How quickly you attain results will depend on a few factors such as age, severity, genetic predisposition to hair loss, treatment dosage, scalp condition and other external factors. Generally, the earlier treatment is begun, the faster and more effective the results are*. New hair growth is seen in almost all cases of pattern hair loss, but the extent of satisfaction will also depend on the individual. There are some individuals who respond well – and then there are those who don’t respond as well and may need additional treatment. We recommend that you come in for a consultation at one of our clinics to assess your scalp and hair condition, and discuss your chances of hair regrowth.
For other forms of non-scarring alopecia, the results may vary depending on the circumstance and how soon the causative factor is dealt with. However, hair regrowth will not occur in places where there are no viable follicles, i.e. in people with forms of scarring alopecia (e.g. burns to the scalp, surgical scars).
