If CTE resolves or slows, is regaining original density uncommon? Is there a point after which regaining density is unlikely?

Some say CTE never stops and even if it slows or subsides, hair density is never regained. Is it true that whether or not shedding slows, hair density remains at whatever new setpoint it reaches, regardless of how thin the hair becomes? Is there a timeframe - after X number of years- which one should NOT expect density to return after CTE? Are any treatments effective once shed has slowed but density has not returned?

CTE resolves

Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated. Women started to experience balding even more in the last 2 decades. It is getting more and more common also in women population. However it is also good to know that this problem is also treatable when it is present in women.

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.

Organic Hair Transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called “donor site” to bald or balding part of the body known as the “recipient site”. Grafts containing hair follicles that are obtained from genetically resistant to balding area transplanted to the bald scalp by latest minimally invasive technique. One of the most important reasons of the hair loss is the decreased quality of the scalp. Therefore to make the only transplantation would provide only a limited benefit without improving the quality of the scalp. In the “Organic Hair Transplantation”

Prognosis of CTE? Possibility of regaining density?

woodlander:

Thanks for the question. CTE has many different causes. The prognosis, degree of hair loss, and subsequent course depends on the etiology that cause the hair to undergo telogen effluvium. Would recommend that you see a hair loss specialist to undergo an evaluation.


All the best,

Help for Hair Loss Concerns

These are difficult to answer, because each person will be different case. I recommend getting a formal consultation with a hair loss expert. The best options are PRP and progesterone injections to the scalp and/or hair transplantation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
