Microneedling for Hair Restoration

As with the skin, the microneedling device can be used for the scalp too. It contains lots of tiny needles which can be used alongside minoxidil. Serums can also be placed on the scalp and needled into the skin to aid regrowth.

The key is diagnosis, because, as mentioned, if you have damaged the hair follicle, then there is not treatment that will help this. A hair transplant can obviously be of use, but not the types of treatment we offer at London & Surrey Aesthetics.

  • Microneedling treatment course of 3 £600.00 (£200.00 per session)
  • Microneedling treatment course of 6 £1,080.00 (£180.00 per session)
  • Maintenance 2 sessions twice yearly £400.00 per 2 sessions

If there are vitamin or hormone imbalances, sexually transmitted diseases or infections, then these underlying causes need to be dealt with first. Again, involving your GP or dermatologist may be the best option. Scalp biopsy and blood tests may be necessary and are not done in our clinic.

If there are no medically related underlying causes of hair loss, then we come on to the hair loss that can regrow on its own. 

For example if you have recently:

  • Recovered from a major illness
  • Had surgery
  • Had a baby
  • Underwent cancer treatment
  • Lost 10kg or more
  • Have got rid of the psoriasis on your scalp
  • Stopped pulling your hair back and putting stress on the hair
  • Sopped using damaging products on your hair

Although hair can regrow on its own, having treatment may speed up the regrowth and help thicken the hair.

Minoxidil

One of the most common at home treatment of hair loss is Minoxidil, which is a liquid that you apply to the scalp usually one to twice per day. This can prevent further hair loss and also stimulate hair growth. However, it is a slow process and can take 6 months or more to see much hair growth. When you stop applying it, the hair loss returns. Minoxidil can only help early hair loss.

Laser caps, bands and combs

There are quite a few devices on the market involving at home use of laser. This can be in the form of caps, bands or combs. However only a few studies have reviewed their effectiveness. Certainly, more research is needed to review their effectiveness. Not everyone sees regrowth of hair. 

Medical treatments by dermatologists

Dermatologist (specialist skin doctors) can also use other injectable substances and clinical laser therapy to improve hair growth. There are also prescription drugs that can help with regrowth and again this can take 4 months or so to notice improvement. Please discuss with your GP if you would like to consider these treatments.

AnteAGE MD targets the power of growth factors to reactivate the skin’s natural regenerative properties. Cytosignals mimic our body’s own growth factors which restore youthful skin and boost hair growth.

We have all heard of stem cells within our skin, which contain hundreds of different growth factors and cytokines which manage the skins’ healing and regeneration. In younger skin, these naturally occurring stem cells are more robust and responsive and therefore the skin is smooth, elastic and radiant. As we age, the number of these stem cells reduce and therefore it is more difficult for our skin to repair, this can result in poorer skin health.

Essentially the scientists at AnteAGE MD have managed to culture body identical growth factors and Cytosignals to improve skin repair and rejuvenation as well as stimulate the hair follicle. These growth factors are derived from human bone marrow stem cells. These are packaged into skincare products and home hair care products as well as in clinic treatment serums that can be used with microneedling for example.

All products are cruelty-free, paraben, and dye free. A nanoliposome delivery system is used to ensure proper penetration of the skin. The formulations are stable and don’t require refrigeration. Most people see a noticeable difference within 30 days in terms of skin. With hair this can take longer but generally within 3 months there should be a difference. 

AnteAGE MD Home Hair Care Kit:

This kit consists of hair serum, microchannel stamp, thickening brush and sanitizer vial. So, it provides all the tools needed to stimulate hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth. The serum contains WNT1 growth factors that specifically signal to the dormant stem cells inside the hair follicles to regenerate and return to normal growth patterns. There are multiple botanicals that simulate circulation and blood flow whilst also being anti-inflammatory.

The serum is applied 5 nights per week using the thickening brush or fingertips. Then the stamp is used 1-2 times per week to gently create microchannels in the scalp so that the growth factors are delivered more deeply within the follicle.

The system can be used on its own however, it is best to be used with microneedling the professional hair serum in clinic. This serum is 10 times stronger than the home kit.

Ultimately the serums reduce the rate of hair loss, promote new growth, increase fullness and density of the hair, simulate the stem cells in the hair follicle, and can be used post hair transplant, when pregnant or breast feeding and if having cancer treatment (applies to the home kit only as microneedling is contraindicated).

 

AnteAGE MD hair serum for in clinic treatment:

The Hair growth serum includes 9 bioidentical recombinant growth factors responsible for hair follicle replication and regeneration. Formulated with a hyaluronic acid base, making it non-toxic, and there have been several clinical trials to prove its effectiveness.

Hair Loss

Hair loss, a concern that affects millions worldwide, isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s deeply intertwined with an individual’s self-esteem and confidence. While there are myriad treatments available, not all offer the same efficacy or natural results.

Microneedling is a revolutionary technique that aids to rejuvenate the scalp and stimulate hair growth.

At London & Surrey Aesthetics, we offer microneedling to provide a solution that’s both effective and minimally invasive.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, often referred to as collagen induction therapy or dermarolling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin or scalp, and address various dermatological concerns. The procedure involves the use of a specialized device equipped with numerous tiny, sterile needles. These needles create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural wound healing process.

Benefits of Microneedling for Hair Restoration

Microneedling, a minimally invasive procedure, has gained significant attention in the realm of hair restoration. By creating micro-injuries to the scalp, it stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. Here are the key benefits of opting for microneedling for hair restoration:

Stimulation of Natural Hair Growth

Microneedling activates the scalp’s stem cells and promotes the growth of hair follicles. This can lead to the regeneration of new hair strands and the strengthening of existing ones.

Enhancement of Product Absorption

The tiny channels created by microneedling allow for better absorption of topical hair growth products, such as AntiAge MD and other hair growth serums. This can amplify the effectiveness of these treatments, leading to faster and more pronounced results.

Improvement in Scalp Circulation

The procedure boosts blood flow to the scalp, ensuring that hair follicles receive an ample supply of nutrients and oxygen. Enhanced circulation can invigorate dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the growth phase.

Reduction in DHT Production

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone linked to hair thinning and loss. Microneedling can help reduce the production of DHT, thereby slowing down hair loss and promoting a fuller scalp.

Safe for Most Individuals

Microneedling is suitable for both men and women and can be used on all hair types. It’s a safer alternative to surgical procedures, with minimal side effects and downtime.

Cost-Effective

Compared to surgical hair transplantation and other invasive treatments, microneedling is relatively affordable. It offers a balance between efficacy and cost, making it accessible to a wider range of individuals.

Minimal Downtime

Post-procedure, patients can typically resume their daily activities quickly. While slight redness or swelling might occur, these symptoms usually subside within a day or two.

Natural Results

Unlike some treatments that can give an artificial appearance, microneedling promotes natural hair growth, ensuring that the results blend seamlessly with the existing hair.

Microneedling for hair restoration, therefore, is a promising technique that harnesses the body’s innate healing mechanisms to combat hair loss. By choosing this procedure, individuals can look forward to a rejuvenated scalp and a boost in self-confidence.

The Microneedling Procedure at London & Surrey Aesthetics

At London & Surrey Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on offering state-of-the-art treatments that prioritise patient safety and satisfaction. Our microneedling procedure for hair restoration is no exception. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect during your visit:

Initial Consultation:

Before any treatment begins, you’ll have a one-on-one consultation with one of our trained professionals. This session is crucial for understanding your hair loss concerns, medical history, and desired outcomes. It also provides an opportunity to address any questions or concerns you might have. There are many different reasons for hair loss, and it is important that all the correct tests have been performed to establish the cause, prior to any treatment. Any vitamin deficiency for example, needs to be addressed as this can reverse hair loss in some patients.

Scalp Assessment

Our experts will examine your scalp to determine the extent of hair loss and the health of your hair follicles. This assessment helps in tailoring the microneedling procedure to your specific needs.

Pre-treatment Preparations

The treatment area will be cleaned thoroughly to prevent any infections. It is important that your hair is clean and has no product in it prior to treatment. Do not use Minoxidil on the day of the treatment and for 24 hours after treatment.

Microneedling Procedure

Using a specialized microneedling device, our trained professional will create tiny punctures in the scalp. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen production and rejuvenating hair follicles. When combined with hair growth serums, the microneedling process can enhance the absorption of these products, amplifying their effects.

Post-treatment Care

Once the procedure is complete, our experts will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery.

Follow-up Sessions

For the best results, multiple microneedling sessions are recommended. The number and frequency of these sessions will depend on the individual’s hair loss severity and desired outcomes. Regular follow-ups will also allow our team to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

At London & Surrey Aesthetics, we are committed to providing treatments that are both effective and safe. Our team’s expertise ensures that the microneedling procedure is conducted with the utmost precision, maximizing benefits while minimizing any potential risks. If you’re considering microneedling for hair restoration, we invite you to experience the difference at our clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Microneedling for Hair Restoration

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a device equipped with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the scalp. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, promoting increased blood flow and collagen production, which can aid in hair regrowth.

A typical microneedling session for hair restoration at London & Surrey Aesthetics lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

While you might feel some discomfort, the procedure is generally well-tolerated. The depths required to stimulate the scalp are not too deep and therefore most patients are comfortable throughout the procedure. For example, in one study reviewing androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss) the depth of 0.6mm was found to be more effective than the depth of 1.2mm (Faghihi et al. 2021). This is where being more gentle can be the answer.

The number of sessions varies depending on individual needs. On average, patients undergo 3 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Our specialists will provide a personalized treatment plan during your consultation. Depending on your hair loss, at home treatment may also be recommended.

Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn. These typically subside within a few days. It’s essential to follow aftercare instructions to minimize any potential side effects. Most studies have found no serious adverse events when microneedling has been studied (English et al. 2022). Transient pain, scalp irritation and mild redness were the most common reported (English et al. 2022).

Patients often notice an improvement in hair texture and volume within a few weeks. However, significant hair regrowth can take a few months as the scalp heals and responds to the treatment.

Yes, microneedling can be combined with other treatments like minoxidil or hair growth serums to enhance results. There have been studies comparing minoxidil and other treatments in isolation compared with those treatments plus microneedling and found the combined minoxidil and microneedling groups do better (Starace et al. 2020; Burns et al. 2021). Our experts will advise on the best combination based on your specific needs.

Microneedling is effective for various hair loss types, especially when the hair follicles are still active. However, it may not be suitable for all conditions. A thorough consultation will determine if microneedling is right for you.

Avoid direct sun exposure, rigorous exercise, and swimming for at least 48 hours post-treatment. It’s also recommended to use a gentle shampoo and avoid using hair products with harsh chemicals during the healing process.

London & Surrey Aesthetics boasts a team of trained professionals with years of experience in hair restoration treatments. Our clinic uses state-of-the-art equipment, ensuring safe and effective treatments tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Client Reviews

cropped London Surrey Aesthetics Site Icon
I had a really great experience with this clinic. I knew nothing about skin or what my skincare should have been and Marie was able to complete a really thorough consultation that was individual to my needs. I now have a proper skin routine that is focused on my combo skin and it’s never looked better!
Ambre McGee
I have had botox and cheek filler with Marie and am super happy with the result. Marie is very thorough and focused on ensuring the results looked natural and enhanced my natural look (i.e) how I looked 10 years ago! She also gave me great skin care advice which has really helped my confidence (and skin).
Clare
I've visited Marie for a couple of treatments recently, and would highly recommend her. She is knowledgeable and thorough in the consultation, and seems to know exactly what's needed to sort the areas that I'm not happy with. Marie has really sorted my jowls with filler so naturally, it has taken years off!
