How long does it take for hair to grow after a hair transplant?
The number one hair transplant clinic in Europe.
One of the most common questions when considering a hair transplant is how long it takes for the hair to grow. The desire to see oneself with hair can be a cause of anxiety, but everything requires its own time.
In addition to this very common question, there are others such as: Does it grow at the same rate for everyone? Does it depend on the type of hair? How can faster growth be promoted? These are all very natural questions and in today’s post, we are going to answer them.
What is the growth rate after a hair transplant?
After a hair transplant, the hair grows in a series of stages. The first stage is around the first month, in which part of the transplanted hair falls out, but there is no need to be alarmed, as this is a natural process. The hair will grow back, and between the third and sixth month, we will begin to notice visible results. In some people, it will be more noticeable than in others.
After one year, we’ll have a clearer picture. The hair will have grown fully, but with one caveat, it will take about 18 months for the hair to grow in full around the crown of the head. This is because this area is convex and somewhat irregular and so it takes longer for the final result to become apparent.
It’s worth noting that women’s hair grows faster on average than men’s.
The type of hair, whether it is wavy, straight, curly, etc. will not be a determining factor when it comes to faster hair growth. There is no scientific evidence in this regard. On the other hand, it is true that a person’s genetics can influence whether hair grows faster or slower.
How can I positively influence hair growth?
One of the best ways to promote hair growth is to undergo hair mesotherapy treatment. At Insparya we use a special formula that promotes hair quality and nourishes the scalp.
Another way to promote good hair growth is through nutrition. It’s important that we are not deficient in any minerals or vitamins, etc. Biotin is an example of a vitamin that’s very important for hair health.
Age: it should be noted that the older the body’s recovery systems are, the slower the hair growth is likely to be. On the other hand, if you are younger, recovery will be faster.
In addition, it will be of vital importance to follow the hair care recommended by hair specialists after the transplant.
What has a negative effect on hair growth?
Smoking causes hair to grow more slowly or not at all.
Certain medications can influence hair growth or cause hair loss, such as corticosteroids and isotretinoin (an acne medication that can cause hair loss).
Mood disorders, such as depression (mild), or stress (severe).
And also hormonal issues, such as menopause in women, due to a reduction in female hormones or thyroid alterations.
