Microneedling for hair loss

Microneedling is a type of Non Surgical cosmetic treatment Like PRP that addresses various effects of aging. It’s also nicknamed skin needling because of its effects on increasing collagen production in the skin.

Microneedling involves the use of a skin roller with small needles that causes minor skin injuries.

While used as an anti-aging skin treatment, microneedling may also be a method of treatment for hair loss. There’s even evidence that it can help a special type of hair loss known as alopecia areata.

The same process of creating wounds in the skin is also thought to regenerate the health of the hair follicles. It’s thought that this can result in new hair growth, or perhaps, it may thicken thinning hair as seen in androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness.

Dermaroller at-home treatment VS IHI CLINIC

To offset costs and time commitments, some people choose to purchase dermarollers to self-administer microneedling treatments at home.

There are significant downsides to at-home dermaroller treatments though. These include:

  1. not knowing the right size needles to use
  2. not being able to see certain parts of your own scalp, such as the back of your head
  3. not being able to target the desired areas as well as a professional
  4. not knowing how to use the roller properly
  5. not knowing when to stop
  6. not knowing how much pressure to use and how to properly roll the roller
  7. not having the adjuvant treatment available that providers may use to see results, such as platelet-rich plasma

These factors can make your hair loss treatment less effective compared to seeing a our Clinic professional.
