The below question was asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums and answered by Janna, the lead medical technician for Coalition hair restoration surgeons Dr. Ron Shapiro and Dr. Paul Shapiro.
The growth rate seems more dependent upon an individual’s physiology than age in my opinion. Another factor may be the hair restoration clinic’s protocol and techniques, such as the type of holding solutions used and how quickly the follicular unit grafts are planted.
Regenerating therapies like ACell to help repair the follicles could also play a part in growth rates.
