Microneedling Hair Loss Treatments
One of the reasons your hair begins to get thinner as you get older is unhealthy, weakened hair follicles. The hair follicles need collagen and nutrients to continue the hair growth cycle – if collagen wanes and circulation is decreased in the scalp, some hair follicles may stop producing hair. One of the ways to trigger new hair growth is through collagen induction and scalp stimulation with microneedling. At Elite Hair Transplant Center, we offer microneedling hair loss treatments as one of our hair restoration procedures in Beverly Hills, CA.
Loss of collagen as you get older has a dramatic impact on the skin, including the scalp. Collagen is vital for strong, healthy hair follicles. Starting in the 30s, most people begin producing less collagen, which affects skin firmness and elasticity. In the scalp, the hair follicles can shrink, creating thinner hair. Stimulating collagen in the scalp can increase collagen to repair and strengthen, which can be achieved with microneedling hair growth treatments.
Collagen-Induction Hair Growth Therapy
Microneedling uses tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin, creating micro injuries. The small pricks into the skin do not cause damage, but it does trigger a healing response. To repair the micro injuries, collagen is produced. This collagen-induction therapy is used to improve skin appearance and it can be used to stimulate repair of the hair follicles.
Microneedling for hair restoration can be performed in less than an hour. It is not painful, and there is no downtime needed after the procedure. The tiny perforations into the scalp can increase collagen and improve circulation to the hair follicles. Multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart are often required to achieve the hair growth results desired.
