Everybody is different, so I cannot insure for the period. Someone experience effectiveness in a week when the pores are not closed.
4 treatments per year of problem
Thank you for your question. Every "body" is unique and different. Its hard to say how long it will take for your hair to grow back. It depends on a variety of factors. The physician who is treating you, may be able to give you an idea of time frame to see a difference. Usually, the body is the only thing that can tell what it will do with the treatment you receive. Its hard to tell what your body will do. Good Luck with your hair growth.
Sincerely, Yours in Health!
Acupuncture may help promote blood flow and stimulate hair follicles, which can lead to improved hair growth. However, it is important to note that hair growth is a slow process and it may take several months or longer to see noticeable improvements. Furthermore, hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, stress, and nutritional deficiencies, among others. The effectiveness of acupuncture may also depend on addressing the underlying cause of the hair loss.
I would need to do a comprehensive intake and determine cause of hair loss to answer this question with any accuracy.
Hairloss can be attributed to several conditions and depending on that condition can determine the prognosis. I had a professor once compare the herbal topical formula to rogain saying the efficacy is roughly the same.
It depends on the underlying reason the hair loss is present. Combining Chinese herbs and dietary advice can speed up the process! Harmonizing Healthcare * <>* (928) 856-0656
Acupuncture for hair loss: it depends on the root cause of your hair loss. That would require a consultation for me to best assist your personal case. Generally speaking, Id recommends herbal formulas to assist in stopping hair loss and salves for regrowth. Most patients who have taken my tinctures have reported hair loss ceasing within 4 days.
This is entirely individual. I would need to know the health history, age, would take pulses and look at the tongue, and other diagnostic tools/ questions might be used.
Research suggests regrowth with acupuncture can begin in as little as 3 months. I perform complete intakes on my own patients at their visit to ID possible root causes (e.g. genetics, hormones, stress, traction) and establish a care plan/set of visits. If the research suggests 3 months, I would ID patient goals and checkpoints at the 3-month and 6-month point. Chinese herbal medicine is also heavily supported by research to promote blood flow to the scalp and regulate body functions, allowing hair follicles to thrive; herbs also help patients that prefer telehealth/cannot visit the office as often. My patients receive maintenance treatments to counter relapse.
It depends on the condition, the length of time you've had the condition and your level of commitment to remedying the condition. Typically, patients I have treated have used a combination of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs and have gotten good results.
It depends what kind of hair loss . Some patients got treated in 4-5 sessions and some takes up to 6 months to have more hair grow
It varies. I have had cases where after a number of sessions of acupuncture and herbs, and sometimes massage, I've seen the growth of new hair, usually after 3-4 weeks.
it depend. probably about 6 months to 2 years of regular treatments
Acupuncture can help to regrow hair that has recently been lost, but hair that was lost more than a few months ago will most likely not grow back, due to skin cells growing over the follicle. Also, hair loss can be due to many different factors, such as hormonal changes, stress, sleep loss, etc. all of which Acupuncture can also alleviate.
This is Very Very difficult to treat. You must take Herbs! The success rate is not the best in my professional opinion of 20plus years. Find someone who specializes in this. Good Luck
For my view, it might take as long as 5 weeks for acupuncture to work for hair loss.
I'm sorry but I don't know, I've never treated someone for hair loss. You might want to check with acupuncturists near you to see if any of them have.
It is extremely difficult to predict how long it might take acupuncture to work for any health issue. There are a lot of variables to the 'how long' question, and many of them are impossible to know up front. Hair grows very slowly, so I suspect you'd be looking at a month or two at least before you could even tell a difference.
