Alopecia (abnormal hair loss) is a common disease in both males and females. Common causes of alopecia are primarily hormonal or infectious. Hormonal irregularities or infections can be ruled out by the treating Physician and treated accordingly.
Alopecia, is also triggered by stressors such as underlying chronic conditions, anxiety and depression which may decrease the nutrients through diminished blood supply to hair follicles, and ultimately hair loss.
Microneedling (Collagen P.I.N.) for alopecia is the new breakthrough in aesthetics medicine for the treatment of alopecia in both males and females. 36 microneedles are used to create micro-injuries in the scalp while using Rogaine (minoxidil) as a base over the area. This induces penetration of minoxidil into the scalp stimulating dermal papilla and stem cells while also increasing the blood supply to the hair follicles.
No anesthesia is required and there is no down time to the treatment or any side effects. 3 sessions are required with 3 weeks between each treatment sessions, results were noticed by the 3rd treatment session (9 weeks).
