Aesthetica badges

No one wants to face the signs of aging, but eventually, there comes a time when it’s necessary. For men, one of the top signs is hair loss. If you’re experiencing hair loss, you understand the frustration that comes with it. When the serums and shampoos don’t seem to be working, where do you go next? 

If this is you, it’s time to check out microneedling with PRP hair regrowth treatment and embrace healthy hair again with this breakthrough technique.

What Causes Hair Loss in Men?

Hair loss is a common issue for men. More than 50% of men experience hair loss when they age. In fact, by age 70, four out of every five men either have receding hair lines or bald spots if they are not bald. So why is male baldness so common?

There are several reasons why men struggle with hair loss. The two main reasons are hormones and genetic makeup. While hormones and genetic makeup are primary culprits in male hair loss, other factors such as stress, diet, and certain medications also play significant roles. Understanding these diverse causes can provide a more holistic view of the issue. 

In addition, men with poor diets or on certain medications may experience hair thinning from these. Several factors can contribute to hair loss, but none make the experience more pleasant.

Environmental Factors Contributing to Men's Hair Loss

One other factor that causes hair loss must be mentioned here. If you live in a stressful environment, this could be causing your hair loss. Stress is common today, but high-intensity or long-duration stress can cause negative reactions in your body, including hair loss.

Is Hair Loss The Same As Male Pattern Baldness

If you’ve researched baldness, you might be familiar with the term “male pattern baldness.” This technical-sounding term isn’t very complicated. It’s just one way to describe hair loss in men. Male pattern baldness is the most common reason for hair loss in men. So don’t be surprised to see it pop up all over Google searches about hair loss.

What is Microneedling?

So, you’re probably wondering how to stop your hair loss and rejuvenate your scalp and hair. One unanticipated answer is microneedling. 

Microneedling is a nonsurgical medical spa procedure that improves skin health and youthfulness. Often, people seek out microneedling to help correct signs of aging or symptoms of an unhealthy environment. One of the signs of aging is hair loss, which microneedling combats by stimulating blood flow and waking up your hair follicles. So let’s explore what happens in a microneelding session.

Step-by-Step: What Happens in a Microneedling Session?

Microneedling is a nonsurgical, low-impact procedure. There are three stages to microneedling, and we’ll walk you through each here. 

The first part is applying the numbing ointment, which will take about 30 minutes to activate. During this time, if you select to incorporate PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) into your treatment, the nurse will draw some blood from your arm and use a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood. 

During the second stage, the microneedling will happen. The nurse will roll a small handheld device with 12 fine needles over your scalp. These needles will create micro wounds and break down scar tissue.

The final stage is the application of the PRP. The nurse will apply it to the areas where it will have particularly effective penetration from the microneedling. Together, these two treatments allow the powerful PRP to help stimulate your body’s hair growth system. 

After your microneedling session, you should care for your scalp. It may feel sensitive or inflamed for a few days after treatment. Make sure you clean your skin, use moisturizer to hydrate it, and apply SPF when you go outside. 

Microneedling doesn’t need to be intimidating. With a few simple steps, you can revitalize your scalp.

How Does Microneedling Stimulate Hair Regrowth?

Pairing PRP with microneedling is a powerful way to help your hair regrow naturally. Microneedling can encourage hair growth because it increases circulation and helps hair follicles reopen. PRP has natural growth factors that encourage your body to grow healthy hair.

You should keep in mind that microneedling and PRP will only work for men with thinning areas or bald patches. Unfortunately, microneedling cannot combat total baldness. So, if you’re looking for a way to reverse the balding process, microneedling and PRP may be the answer.

Maintaining Hair Regrowth After Microneedling

You should continue nourishing your scalp to keep up your new and healthy hair, which includes completing a full treatment of microneedling and getting maintenance treatments afterward. Most men need 3-6 sessions of microneedling about 4-6 weeks apart to begin their hair regrowth journey.

After this, we recommend getting a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months to keep your scalp healthy.
