How does microneedling help with hair loss

How Does Microneedling Help with Hair Loss?

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling very first obtained its online reputation as an effective treatment for scars and pigmentation during the 1990s. Since then, it’s been studied as a potential option or adjunctive therapy for androgenic alopecia and alopecia areata as well as all forms of hair loss and pattern baldness.

Aside from collagen production in the skin, which is believed to underlie among the reasons it may be useful for acne scars and all skin conditions, it’s believed that microneedling can additionally help generate stem cells

Microneedling is also affordable and inexpensive, and combines well with other aesthetic procedures.

What about microneedling with a dermaroller?

Microneedling with a dermaroller involves rolling the tool across the skin with firm pressure This repeated, multidirectional rolling creates tiny bleeding pinpoints on the scalp, in the case of microneedling for hair loss. 

The purpose of microneedling in the case of loss of hair is to boost papilla, or the stem cells in hair roots and hair bulbs, to motivate hair growth or hair regrowth. The idea is that by creating micro injuries, the body’s all-natural defenses will urge wound healing, to allow hair re-growth and improvements in the baseline hair count, making this an ideal hair loss therapy. 

Generally, a microneedling pen works better than a derma roller for several reasons. The microneedling pen’s needle depth can be adjusted, so that it targets the scalp at the right depth. Also, the microneedling pen’s cartridge is disposable, and hence it will not cause any infection or any other risk of infection due to the accumulation of bacteria (which typically will happen for a dermaroller when derma rolling).

Is there evidence that microneedling can help with hair loss? 

There have been several studies on the effectiveness of microneedling treatment of androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern hair loss (in men and women) or male pattern baldness

For instance, a 12-week 2013 randomized blinded study of 100 men in Mumbai was the first to examine the hair growth results of microneedling in humans.  

Previously, researchers had seen promising results in mice. In this study, half of the participants were given minoxidil (a topical FDA-approved hair loss solution) and the other half underwent microneedling procedures once per week, with the topical treatment minoxidil.  

According to the researchers, participants who used microneedling in conjunction with minoxidil saw greater hair count changes and overall patient satisfaction. Eight months after the human studies, the participants still showed positive results as a response.  

Minoxidil works by raising blood flow to the hair follicles as well as boosts them to boost hair growth and also slow balding.

Why you should never do microneedling on your own

It may seem appealing to try DIY microneedling in the privacy of your own bathroom. Tools are deceptively cheap, and the procedure may seem as simple. But at-home microneedling is too risky and can paradoxically result in increased hair loss, rather than the hair growth you hope for.  

To prevent infection and ensure you’re achieving the correct needle depth to encourage new hair growth, you should see an expert with experience using microneedling for hair regeneration. While it will cost more than doing it at home ), the potential damage of DIY microneedling at home is far too risky.
