    Microneedling Therapy for Hair Loss

    Tag Archives: Hair Loss

    According to recent estimates, over 50 million men and 30 million women in the US are affected by the condition of hair loss. A number of surgical as well as non-surgical treatments have emerged over the years to address the problems of hair loss and hair thinning. One of the latest cutting edge treatments that has attracted widespread attention of researchers and scientists focusing on hair regrowth solutions is micro needling therapy.
    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides state of the art non-invasive solutions for hair loss and other aesthetic conditions. M-Body receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.

    Encouraging Results

    Recent scientific studies to evaluate potential solutions for hair loss have focused on the innovative micro needling therapy for the scalp using unique derma roller devices. Results with this non-invasive therapy to fight back hair loss and hair thinning, and promoting the growth of new hair on the scalp have been very encouraging. Some of the clinical studies have also shown that a combination of micro needling therapy and minoxidil treatment on the scalp may produce highly effective outcomes.
    Microneedling therapy essentially involves gentle pricking into the layers of the skin of the scalp. This process is designed to open the pores for optimal absorption of treatments such as minoxidil or others. Sustained application of this treatment combination has revealed outstanding results in the scalp health and hair regrowth. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center provides this treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas.

    How does Microneedling Work?

    Natural hair growth is dependent on the genetic make-up of an individual to support the development of new hair cells. This cellular regeneration occurs within the hair follicles, which are the tiny openings that cover the scalp. A combination of chemicals is required to trigger the production of these cells, including a very important factor called the human growth factor.
    Microneedling therapy is designed to trigger the targeted production of this human growth factor. When the micro needles are pricked into the scalp, it causes superficial and minor wounds to the tissue surface. This prompts the body to set the mechanism in motion for skin regeneration in the area of the wound. Human growth hormone and related growth chemicals are released in this process.
    Scientists are using this principle to cause the stimulation of the growth of hair in the affected area of the scalp. Micro needling has already been extensively used in the area of skin care and aesthetic enhancement of the skin. Now researchers are increasingly supporting the use of the same treatment principle for hair regrowth.

    Minoxidil

    Experts recommend the use of proven hair loss interventions such as minoxidil in combination with micro needling therapy. Minoxidil is the leading physician-recommended topical treatment for hair loss and has been approved by the FDA.

    Hair Life Cycle

    The head of an average adult contains about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs. Hair loss is a natural phenomenon, and a person loses up to 100 hairs per day. At any given point of time, about 90 percent of the hair on the scalp is growing. Each hair follicle has its own lifecycle that is impacted due to heredity, disease, aging, and other factors. The three main phases of this lifecycle are as follows:

    • Anagen: This is the active stage of hair growth that may last for around two to six years.
    • Catagen: This is the transitional stage of hair growth that may last for about two to three weeks.
    • Telogen: This is the resting stage that will last for about two to three months.

    Once the Telogen phase ends, the hair is shed and becomes replaced by a new hair, and the growth cycle restarts. Aging, genetics, and other factors may cause the slowdown in the rate of hair growth. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center provides advanced hair transplant as well as non-invasive solutions for hair loss to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas.

    Types of Hair Loss

    Hair loss can be broadly classified into the following types:

    • Involutional Alopecia: This is a natural condition where hair thinning occurs with age. Hair follicles increasingly go into the resting stage, and the number of remaining hairs continues to reduce.
    • Androgenic Alopecia: This genetic condition may affect both men and women, and is also known as male and female pattern baldness. Men experience a receding hairline and gradual loss of hair from the frontal scalp and crown. Women experience a general thinning of hair across the scalp.
    • Alopecia Areata: This condition usually causes patchy loss of hair in children and young adults. In some cases, the condition may result in total baldness.
    • Alopecia Universalis: This condition may cause loss of all hair, including body hair.
    • Telogen Effluvium: Changes in the hair growth cycle may cause temporary hair thinning and this temporary hair thinning over the scalp occurs because of changes in the growth cycle of hair. A large number of hairs enter the resting phase at the same time, causing hair shedding and subsequent thinning.

    Hair Loss Causes

    Causes of hair loss may vary from one individual to another. Some of the common factors that may trigger hair loss in men and women include hormonal imbalances, genetic profile, stress, illness, childbirth, certain medications, autoimmune disease, unbalanced diet, and burns or injuries.
