Stimulate new hair growth
Microneedling is a treatment to produce increased amounts of collagen, which is said to replenish hair growth by regenerating hair follicles and nourishing hair proteins.
Microneedling for hair loss is backed up by clinical studies and shows high effectiveness in stimulating follicles to produce new hair.
A Microneedling Pen which contains small surgical needles is used for the treatment. The needles pierce the skin and cause micro wounds, without bleeding, which helps produce more collagen and new skin cells as they heal, helping strengthen hair follicles.
By causing micro damage to the skin growth factors are released which have been clinically proven as a stand alone treatment to cause hair regrowth which is as effective as 2% minoxidil solution. By combining the two treatments a synergistic effect is achieved which produces more hairgrowth than either treatment alone. Please note to wait 24 hours after microneedling before applying minoxidil.
Microneedling for hair loss is now regarded as part of the big 4 by those fighting the fight against male pattern baldness. Alongside Minoxidil, Finasteride and Ketoconazole shampoo. The latter 2 working to prevent the accumulation of DHT in the scalp which is one of the hormones responsible for shrinking the hair follicle to a state where it can no longer produce healthy hair. However these treatments for a very small percentage of men can have adverse side effects. Microneedling can work as a stand alone treatment without the need for taking prescription medicine.
Used as part of a long-term hair loss treatment plan, microneedling can help to restore the scalp’s overall health and ability to support hair growth.
Microneedling helps our skin to heal and renew itself, by shedding the dead and dry old skin and promoting the growth of new skin cells. The treatment encourages blood circulation to the scalp, and helps the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which are important for healthy hair follicles and hair growth.
