Did you know that it is possible to regrow hair that fell less than 5 years ago?

In this article, learn about the causes of hair loss and the best way to regrow it with microneedling treatment.

Causes of hair loss

There are many causes of hair loss, here are the main ones:

  • Hormonal disturbances : increased levels of androgens (male sex hormones), especially in women
  • Genetic predisposition : determines the high activity of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase in the skin, which converts inactive testosterone into an active derivative. This leads to progressive thinning of the hair, mainly in the parietal region (in men also in the frontotemporal region), until the complete death of the hair follicle.
  • Diseases of the thyroid gland
  • Gastrointestinal illnesses
  • Infectious and inflammatory diseases of the scalp (seborrheic dermatitis, etc.)
  • Long-term use of drugs causing hair loss (antiepileptics, some immunomodulators), chemotherapy
  • Impact of aggressive environmental factors
  • Conditions of acute and chronic stress
  • Deficiency or excess of micro- or macro-elements
  • Autoimmune diseases

Most often, significant hair loss is the result of simultaneous exposure to more than one of these causes.

Treatments for hair loss

Trichology is a branch of dermatology that focuses on the science of hair. It offers various treatments to fight against hair loss, including:

  • Microneedling
  • Mesotherapy and plasma therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • The scalp massages
  • Applying medical cosmetics to hair and skin

Hair regrowth thanks to microneedling

Trichologists widely use microneedling (micro-needle therapy) which is effective not only for combating hair loss, but especially for stimulate new hair regrowth.

Microneedling makes it possible to treat:

  • Hair loss in the telogen phase
  • Androgenetic alopecia (AAG)
  • Oily and dry seborrhea
  • Dandruff, flaking and itchy scalp
  • Hair damaged after dyeing and / or perms
  • Fine, dry hair that has lost its shine

How does the microneedling treatment work?

Microneedling is a procedure that involves introducing a meso cocktail enriched with vitamins, microelements, amino acids, peptides, into the scalp. These elements will nourish the hair follicles and thus stimulate hair growth.

The device used will perform micro-perforations on the surface of the scalp in order to improve the penetration of the meso cocktail. However, there is no risk of permanent skin changes.

Due to the deterioration of the skin by the micro-perforations, the regeneration processes are activated and the fibroblasts migrate to the damaged cells. This leads to an increase in the synthesis of collagens, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

The scalp's microcirculation and lymphatic drainage are improved, which will significantly increase the oxygen supply to the hair follicles. The most visible effects will be as follows:

  • Acceleration of hair growth
  • Normalization of hair loss
  • Prevention of early gray hair
  • Restoration of natural shine
  • Hair strengthening

Number of sessions needed

A series of procedures will help to achieve a lasting result and supporting procedures will consolidate the result obtained over a long period of time.

The number of sessions required depends on multiple factors and there are contraindications (for example in case of diabetes) for microneedling treatments.
