Microneedling for Hair Loss

Microneedling for Hair Loss

Hair is one of the first things both sexes notice during their initial encounter and those who care about their appearance are particular about maintaining the health and sheen of their hair.

An estimated 40% of men in the United States will experience noticeable hair loss by the age of 35. Approximately 35 million Americans are living with hair loss everyday and those with a chronic condition are losing an average of 100 hairs each day.

According to Scalp Aesthetics, about 811,000 people in the United States are currently undergoing professional treatments for hair growth.

If you have been losing hair quickly and bald patches have started to emerge, consider microneedle therapy.

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is a solution for a variety of skin conditions including hair loss. The use of epidermal growth factors with skin needling will stimulate the blood flow to the hair root.

How Does Microneedling Act on Hair Loss?

Hair growth is dependent on genes that trigger the development of new hair cells. This hair cell production is initiated by a number of chemicals one of which is the human growth factor (HGF).

The mechanical action of microneedling creates micro-wounds in the scalp which release HGF. This effect is enhanced by the use of PRP (platlet rich plasma) which includes your own growth factors.  The result is hair regrowth that will cover thinning and balding areas.

Clinical Trials on Microneedling for Hair Loss

A study on the effect of microneedling on male-pattern baldness found increased regrowth of hair in people who had microneedling. Those who had microneedling in conjunction with the use of Minoxidil hair count was (91.4 hairs) compared to those who used only Minoxidil (22.2 hairs).

The findings were also corroborated in another study of women with hair loss conditions such as telogen effluvium and alopecia areata. Researchers concluded that a combination of microneedling and a topical treatment can stimulate better hair growth than the topical lotion alone.

Topical treatments are effective only if the active ingredients can penetrate through the exterior layer of the scalp known as stratum corneum. Miicro needling creates thousands of micro-perforations through the stratum corneum, allowing the topical solution to deeply penetrate the scalp, and delivers better results.
