Microneedling was originally used to prevent skin aging, but it is increasingly recommended in cases of pathological hair loss. It improves blood circulation in the scalp and promotes hair growth.
The advantages of microneedling
- Promotes hair growth by stimulating fibroblast synthesis
- Suitable for both men and women
- Seasonal hair loss
- Diffuse hair loss
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique that stimulates the scalp’s tissues.
The doctor makes micro-perforations in different parts of the scalp. The objective is to provoke a germinal stimulation of the bulb. In practice, microneedling improves blood circulation in the scalp, but also increases the production of proteins in the cells of the capillary dermis and stimulates the synthesis of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for the renewal of collagen in the tissue.
This is what allows the development of new hair follicles. The patient may notice a normalization of hair loss between the 2nd and 4th session.
For which patients?
Microneedling can be done on both men and women. It is particularly recommended in the following cases:
- premature hair loss
- dryness of the stems (due to fatigue or stress)
- decreased hair growth
