Solution for Pattern Baldness
Scalp Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), has been used by beauty experts for years as a means of promoting a smoother and firmer complexion. More recently, however, Microneedling for hair growth has been growing in popularity as a viable solution for men and women suffering from pattern baldness.
Scalp Microneedling is a procedure in which small, pin-prick sized wounds are made in the skin to trigger the skin’s natural healing process. The body responds to the micro injuries caused by the microneedles by increasing collagen production that, in turn, results in new skin cells that generate new hair follicle growth.
At MAXiM Scalp Micropigmentation, our plastic surgeons and hair restoration nurses or technicians use a mechanical microneedling pen that allows for variation in needle depth, as well as a greater number of penetrations per second. Administered with a local anesthetic, the treatment is painless and usually requires four to six sessions that are performed every four weeks.
How it Works: Scalp Microneedling
During microneedling, At MAXIM Scalp Micropigmentation uses a roller with needles on it. The size of the needles we use, can range from less than 1 millimeter to a few millimeters in length. They’re all contained in a handheld device.
Also called a roller, the device is rolled along the treatment area, creating small injuries to trigger the skin’s natural healing process. Microneedling may provoke the release of factors that promote hair growth or perhaps directly stimulate hair growth as a result of the small injury caused.
At MAXIM Scalp Micropigmentation, we will apply a topical anesthetic to your scalp about 45 minutes prior to treatment. This helps to reduce any pain you may feel during the procedure.
The actual procedure time can vary based on the size of the treatment area, but it generally takes less/more than 10 minutes. After the microneedling is completed, MAXIM Scalp Micropigmentation will apply a topical balm to the area or perform an injection, depending on what the goal of the microneedling session is.
