You should not expect to see significant growth for at least 4-6 months and then by the 8th month you can expect to see 80% of the growth.

Some people may see significant results after 4 months, while others may not begin to see anything until 8 or maybe even 9 months. It is hard to predict if you're making good progress since everyone's results can vary drastically.

If you are worried about your progress, it is best to contact your doctor. In general it may take 6 to 12 months to see results
