It will increase the duration of the growth phase of hair, reduce hair fall, and reverse thinning to an extent which ultimately helps in improving the scalp coverage by boosting natural hair regrowth. After the initial sessions, you will notice a reduction in hair fall. The result of treatment is evident after the third session as you will start noticing visible changes.

Depending on the grade of hair loss and degree of thinning of hair, your dermatologist will decide the number of sessions of Growth Factor you require; and maintenance sessions if any; along with the necessary medical treatment in the form of topical applicants and oral medications etc.
