FUE - How long will it take to see results?



Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUE) is an extremely effective and popular solution to hair loss but the results, whilst impressive, are not immediate. Clients who are interested in pursuing this treatment may wish to familiarise themselves with the stages that their hair will need to go through before the final effect is achieved.


Wait a minute! Your topic is about FUE & full form of FUE is Follicular Unit Extraction. You have mentioned Follicular Unit Transplantation which is abbreviated as FUT but not FUE. So I think you should correct it first before further discussion.

Month One: Grafted hair falls out and goes into a resting phase
Month Three: Regrowth of grafted hair starts 15-20% yield being common
Month Six: Overall improvement in the quality and amount of HT hair growing with 40-60%
Month Nine: 60-80% regrowth, in some cases higher

Usually, by month twelve all the expected hair has grown but the hair can continue to mature in quality. It is not uncommon that even up to 18 months changes occur to the hair quality and calibre.
On a virgin scalp and assuming no complications this is reasonable regardless if FUE or the FUT technique
