What You Need to Know

Unlike microneedling for the skin that increases collagen production, microneedling for hair loss aims to trigger your scalp to produce the stem cells that cause your hair to grow. Even better, this treatment can help your hair and scalp absorb other hair growth products you might use, like products containing minoxidil. This ingredient is a corticosteroid that soothes inflammation at the hair follicle, a symptom of alopecia areata.

During the microneedling treatment, your practitioner will apply a device filled with very tiny needles, about 0.25 to 3 millimeters long, to your scalp to create tiny wounds. The micro-needles will reach the middle layer of skin on your scalp, deep enough to make your skin cells heal the wounds by increasing collagen production.

It helps strengthen your hair follicles, leaving you with a much fuller and more robust head of hair. While needles sound utterly painful, don’t worry—your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to your scalp before beginning the treatment so you won’t feel a thing. Based on how big the area of hair loss is on your scalp, the treatment of microneedling for hair loss can take just half an hour. When you’re all set, your practitioner can apply an alleviating serum or balm that will soothe the inflammation from the needles.
