Hair Restoration and Microneedling Treatments – Benefits for Your Skin and Hair
Have you noticed that your skin and hair are not as healthy as they used to be? Are you wondering if there is a way to improve their health and regain a more youthful appearance? You might want to consider hair restoration and Microneedling treatments. Used in conjunction with each other, they can provide benefits for both skin and hair.
What Hair Restoration and Microneedling?
Hair restoration is completed by drawing one or two vials of your own blood. It is then processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. It stimulates collagen and elastin production. Microneedling is a collagen induction technique typically performed with a dermaroller or Skinpen containing tiny needles. Those needles create micro-injuries in the outermost layer of your skin. As a healing response, collagen production and blood flow are increased. Existing cells are also stimulated which can accelerate cell division.
When used together, the microneedling is done first to create the micro-injuries. The results of both treatments are greatly enhanced when combined.
Microneedling gives your skin a more youthful appearance. The increased blood flow and collagen production stimulated by microneedling can increase the skin’s thickness and firmness. This helps to smooth out and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The collagen boost also helps improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.
Both men and women can experience emotional distress when faced with hair loss. Hair restoration treatments have been available for years – from topical solutions such as Minoxidil and Rogaine to more invasive procedures like hair plugs and transplants. Despite their displeasure over their hair loss, introducing chemicals into their system or undergoing a surgical procedure is something most people aren’t willing to endure.
Microneedling can aid in hair restoration while allowing you to avoid toxic or invasive procedures. Both harness the body’s natural healing abilities. The microneedling not only stimulates the body to repair and rejuvenate the skin but can also aid in the regeneration of your hair follicles. Performing microneedling first enables the body to better absorb the growth factors.
What to Expect
Hair restoration and microneedling are done right in your provider’s office and involve minimal discomfort. A topical numbing solution will be before a microneedling treatment. The procedure lasts only 30-60 minutes, depending on the type of skin condition and the size of the procedure area. For optimal results, multiple sessions may be recommended. Treatments should be given 4-6 weeks apart.
