What is capillary microneedling?
It is a minimally invasive procedure, in which multiple fine needles are applied that are applied in the stratum corneum, the most superficial layer of the skin, in this way microchannels are formed promoting the release of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), activation of stem cells in the hair bulb shaft, and the induction of hair growth factors associated with genes such as VEGF, β-catenin, Wnt3α and Wnt10β, forming collagen and neovascularization.
Capillary Microneedling facilitates the penetration of other therapies that promote hair growth.
Who is the capillary microneedling treatment for?
Capillary Microneedling is aimed at both men and women, who want to stop hair loss, with a loss of more than 200 hairs per day, weakened or thinning hair.
It is also effective in the preparation and maintenance of a hair graft.
hair microneedling benefits
- It improves the vascularization and deminiaturization of the hair follicles.
- Activation of PDGF platelet growth factors and IGF1 growth factors.
- Activation of stem cells in the stem of the hair bulb.
- Induction of hair growth factors associated with genes such as VEGF, β-catenin, Wnt3α and Wnt10β, forming collagen and neovascularization.
- Greater transport of nutrients and oxygen to the hair root.
- Birth of new hair.
What will i experience during hair microneedling treatment?
During Capillary Microneedling, microneedles are applied to the most superficial part of the skin, forming microchannels.
This can cause mild discomfort, as well as erythema or redness, resulting in activation of platelet growth factors (PDGF).
Once the microchannels are formed, vitamins such as arginine or zinc, caffeine and growth factors such as IGF-1 will be applied.
In this way, it will be possible to promote the birth of new hair.
After 10 minutes of treatment, the microchannels created by the microneedles close on their own.
Capillary Microneedling combined with the use of an LED light at 660 nm stimulates the proliferation of dermal papilla cells (hPDC) through the activation of the Wnt / β-catenin and ERK pathways.
The dermal papilla is a group of cells that are essential for the hair root, since they are responsible for transporting nutrients and oxygen necessary for hair growth.
How many hair microneedling sessions are necessary for an optimal result?
For optimal results, at least 1 session per week should be performed for 3 months and 1 session per month to maintain results.
In the case of a hair graft, it is recommended to apply Capillary Microneedling 2 months before the hair graft. 1 weekly session for 1 month, plus 1 month of rest prior to hair grafting.
In maintaining a hair graft, 1 session per month should be performed.
