    Hair restoration treatment results

    People often ask how beneficial it is to undergo an FUE hair transplant and for how long the results last. There are many hair restoration treatments out there but not all of them can give desirable results like FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

    While undergoing the hair restoration treatment whether it is FUE or FUT, the donor hair follicles play an essential part, and it needs to be healthy. When you hire an experienced and skilled hair surgeon he will get a proper diagnosis and then only help you to determine which treatment plan will work the best for you.

    After undergoing the FUE treatment, you need to make sure that you are taking proper care and following the instructions given by the surgeon. The results of the treatment are going to last for a lifetime. Just make sure, to keep your expectations realistic.

    How much time is needed to see the desired results?

    After undergoing the surgery, you are going to see the results within 8 to 12 months of the treatment. Additionally, the results will be different for every person & how well you are taking care of your hair.

    During the treatment, patient hair follicles are used that take time to settle in and get attached to the cells which are present around them. Once, it is done it is going to start growing on its own. 10 to 12 months is not a long time.

    At the beginning of the treatment, you will notice hair shedding within the first few days of getting FUE that is normal. The transplanted hair follicles are going to stay in the desired place, and then they are ready for hair growth.

    What is the procedure for an FUE hair transplant?

    During the FUE procedure, the hair follicles are removed one by one from the back of the scalp (donor area) and then transplanted to where hair growth is less, or the person has bald spots. The reason for taking hair follicles from these spots is because they do not get affected by DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

    DHT hormone occurs naturally in the human body and one of the main reasons for hair loss. The body produces androgen hormone, and it is referred to as the male hormone that is present in men & women. It means taking hair follicles from the side & back of the scalp will stop the androgen hormone from resulting in hair loss.

    With this procedure, a patient’s natural hair is used that will regrow on its own. When you get to see the final results it is going to tell you how effective the treatment is.
