What Is Scalp MicroNeedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure. The process of getting microneedling uses a special device that contains small, fine, needles that puncture the top layer of the scalp. Doing so creates a controlled skin injury that triggers the wound healing response on the scalp. As a result, the growth factors and proteins within the hair follicles are activated and often lead to new hair growth.

Who Should Get MicroNeedling?
Microneedling works best on younger individuals that are in the beginning stages of balding.

Using MicroNeeding Alongside Topical Hair Growth Treatments
If using a topical hair growth treatment, microneedling can help with its absorption rate by 5% or more. The .75mm depth, tiny openings that are made in the scalp with microneedling, allow the medication to pass through the outer layer of the scalp that typically blocks the absorption of topical products.

Microneedling Combined with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Microneedling is also great to use in combination with platelet-rich plasma treatments. PRP is derived from your own blood and applied to your scalp either by injection or topically.  Doing so promotes wound healing, tissue repair, and hair growth. Using PRP along with microneedling makes for better results, and also decreases the duration of redness and swelling that takes place after microneedling.
