Written By West Georgia Medicine on March 18, 2021

Microneedling for hair lossWith over 250 genes contributing to male-pattern baldness, there’s clearly a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to hair loss. You may be losing hair due to your genetics, aging, stress, or an underlying medical condition. Whatever the cause is, you can opt for microneedling to help you thicken your hair and increase its growth without resorting to surgery. 

What is Microneedling for Hair Loss?

Microneedling is a popular procedure in which a device full of tiny needles is used to create micro-injuries in your area of interest. It is important to note that the needles are only 1mm to a few millimeters in length and the minuscule lesions they create do not cause any harm to your body. 

How Does Microneedling Help Your Hair Grow Back?

Microneedling restores your hair growth through:

  • Increasing your ability to absorb essential hair-growth products (such as topical steroids and platelet-rich plasma)
  • Enhancing collagen production in your scalp to regenerate hair follicles
  • Promoting hair growth through stimulation

Microneedling is typically used on the skin to smooth it out; however, it is now showing promising results when used on the scalp for hair restoration.

Is Hair Restoration Microneedling with PRP More Effective?

Hair restoration microneedling with PRP is effective at treating hair loss. This procedure involves a regular microneedling session, however, with the addition of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The stem cells that increase collagen production and cell growth in your body are called PRP.

PRP is obtained from your own body by drawing a small blood sample and then centrifuging it until the blood is separated into components. Natural Biologics such as Exosomes may be used in addition to the PRP. Exosomes have been shown to be key mediators of cell to cell communication, delivering a distinct cargo of lipids, proteins and nucleic acids that reflects their cell of origin. Once the PRP is divided, your medical practitioner will apply it to the area of your scalp where the microneedling was done. The PRP goes deep into your skin and helps regenerate hair growth and revive dead hair follicles. The entire process will take around an hour and you may need several sessions over a period of six months to get the results you desire.
