It is difficult to estimate the level of regrowth a person will experience before starting treatment but, following a normal initial shedding period, treatment should usually being to take effect by around 3 months. Sometimes it could however take up to 12 months. There are certain factors that will indicate how well one might respond to treatment, such as age and the length of time a person has been been losing their hair, but this is never conclusive and two people with a similar age may and levels of hair loss may have different experiences.
According to clinical data, most men will maintain or increase their hair count – some seeing moderate improvements and others noticing a significant increase in hair density. Others may see stabilisation and no regrowth, or minimal regrowth. After the first 12 months of treatment it is likely that regrowth will have plateaued and continuation of treatment will be aimed at maintaining the newly improved head of hair.
Our Hair Loss Success Stories gallery shows a wade variety of results. Some patients will experience considerable regrowth within the first three to six months whilst others may see less regrowth, or a more progressive improvement over the space of a year. It is not only the level of results that vary, but the time it takes for a person’s hair to improve. These Male Hair Loss Success Stories will give you a clearer idea of the type of the varying results that men can experience from treating their hair loss.
This Belgravia patient has experienced substantial regrowth over a 17 month period. His hair loss has stabilised and the top of his head, which, at month 1, was displaying clear signs of vertex thinning, was showing much thicker regrowth by month 17.
Whilst the hair at the front of his receding hairline has also thickened, the hair around the temples has not regrown. This could be because hair around the temples is the slowest to regrow, or, it could be because the client had no vellus hairs left in these areas. If the skin has taken on a shiny, bald appearance it is unlikely hair can ever be regrown in these areas.
