Derma Needling also referred to as Micro Needling is a relatively novel therapeutic modality introduced in the 1990’s where small fine needles are used to create micro-punctures in the superficial skin. It is a minimally invasive and safe procedure used for various dermatologic conditions. Research has shown the benefits of derma-needling in stimulating new hair growth in both men and women with androgenetic alopecia.
The exact mechanism of derma-needling monotherapy action is yet to be determined, with theories of increased blood flow and the release of native growth factors to the affected area involving the would healing-healing cascade. The net result is the increase of hair growth and facial rejuvenation secondary to collagen production. Furthermore, the micro-punctures allow for the deeper penetration and transportation of pharmaceutical and bio-ingredients reaching the hair follicle.
Derma Needling is an adjuvant treatment modality that is used synergistically pharmaceutical ingredients ex. minoxidil and bio-active ingredients example Growth Factors and Exosomes. Research studies have shown that combining derma-needling with ingredients such as minoxidil 5% had a superior outcome in hair density than using minoxidil 5% on its own topically. the stem cells to repair and restore damaged hair follicles, stimulate hair growth, allowing for increased density, diameter, and strength of the hair and promotes enhanced vitality and shine. Multiple sessions are required to achieve optimum results and you will start to notice these results at approximately 4 months’ time.
