Second month, day one. No sign of hope?

Greetings. To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles

Hair growth after hair transplant

You are 2 months post surgery, you need to give it more time.  At 3-4 months, you will see the onset of hair growth but it is not until 10 months to a year that you will see full growth.

2 months...too early

I see this a lot with patients and I tell them the same thing. Patience! The hair transplant procedure is really not only a financial investment but also an investment in time. You typically wont see your new hair start to sprout until about 3 months. It isn't until about 6 months when you will see any drastic change and then you still have to wait for up to a year before you will see the full results. 

But be patient and when it is all done it will be worth the wait.

2 Months post op

Hair transplantation results mostly will start to be visible by the 5th-7th month but of course it is not the final result.To get a final result minimum 12 months you have to wait.
I believe there is nothing to worry on your side but be patient.

All the best

Second month, day one. No sign of hope?

Thank you for posting your question. Being 5 weeks post procedure is too early to judge. Growth doesn't start until your 3rd or 4th month mark. At 6 months you should have roughly around 50% growth, and can take up to 12 to 14 month to see 100% results. Hope this helps.

2 months after transplant

Patience is what you need. It will take 5-6 months to start growing and by the 8th month you will have 80% of the growth.
