1. MICRO-NEEDLING: INTRODUCTION
Micro-needling is a simple technique with no side effects that can cause real improvement to hair loss in both men and women.
It makes micro-perforations at different levels of the skin and stimulates the synthesis of fibroblasts (cells responsible for the renewal of collagen in tissues). The technique can also improve blood circulation in the scalp and stimulate the hair bulb.
2. MICRO-NEEDLING: INDICATIONS
A digital trichoscopy (Tricholab®) is necessary to measure the effectiveness of the treatment.
3. MICRO-NEEDLING: PROCEDURE
The operation is painless, it is performed using a Dermaroller (a micropuncture device), either only on the bald areas or on the entire scalp. Skin cells then respond to stimulation which leads to higher collagen production.
4. THE PROS OF MICRONEEDLING
Treatment is minimally invasive and painless with local anesthesia.
5. THE CONS OF MICRONEEDLING
A digitized trichoscopy (TricholabⓇ) must be performed before treatment begins.
May cause redness at the treatment site for 2 to 6 hours and, on rare occasions, small edema may occur.
Each session lasts 30 minutes
6 sessions in total: One session per week for 6 weeks.
Results may generally be visible beginning after the 4th to the 6th session. A series of maintenance sessions once or twice each year is recommended in order to maintain results.
The preliminary diagnosis costs 100 euros.
Each micro-needling session costs 100 euros.
A digital trichoscopy (TricholabⓇ) is required before performing this procedure.
Reductions in hair loss are generally noted after the 4th to the 6th session, although a slight increase in hair loss may sometimes be noted at the beginning of the treatment. The texture of the hair can also improve from the 3rd month.
