Find out what the studies say!
Micro-needling is a revolutionary new style of hair rejuvenation which has been documented to provide fast, effective, and virtually painless results. An incredible 82% of patients in a recent study reported a more than 50% improvement in hair growth following treatment .
By combining this innovative treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), we aim to stimulate hair growth even faster. PRP is a nutrient-rich serum derived from your own blood that is thought to stimulate the development of new follicles. By exposing the micro-channels left in your skin by the micro-needling to the PRP serum, growth factors are released directly into the scalp as a way of encouraging your body’s natural repair process, providing much-needed nutrients and blood supply to the affected areas .
Most patients appreciate the:
+ Efficient treatment time (15-30 minutes)
+ Reduced side effects (minimal redness and tenderness)
+ Virtually no downtime
+ Enhanced comfort
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Hair Rejuvenation therapy may be of benefit to men and women of all ages that are experiencing a receding hairline or hair thinning.
What results can I expect?
Studies show that micro-needling is an effective way of creating thicker, fuller-looking hair, reducing the appearance of a receding hairline, balding patches or thinning hair [1); while early studies into PRP show promising results [3, 4].
What does the treatment involve?
The process involves the use of a small pen-like handheld device consisting of several tiny needles at the tip which gently make controlled punctures on the surface of the skin as it is run over your scalp. This initiates your body’s natural repair process, generating new skin cells and triggering the production of new hair .
A thin layer of topical gel is applied to your scalp. Next, the micro-needling device will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. PRP serum is then applied to the area for absorption into the skin.
Is the procedure painful?
The process involves making micro-injuries to your scalp so it may cause some discomfort.
Your doctor will apply a topical anaesthetic to your scalp about 45 minutes prior to treatment. This helps to reduce any pain you may feel.
How long does it take to work?
One treatment per month for up to three months is typically required for optimal results with results visible after 1 month . Results may be maintained with follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
What is platelet rich plasma?
The use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a relatively new procedure. Your body’s own plasma is used to stimulate the hair follicles and encourage new hair regrowth , and when used in conjunction with derma penning may improve the results.
Is there any downtime?
It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), and requires simple after-care.
