Where do I get microneedling treatment for hair restoration?
The main purpose for microneedling when it comes to hair loss, is used to stimulate the dermal papilla, or the stem cells in the hair follicles to help encourage growth factors.
This cosmetic treatment addresses hair loss due to stress, aging, and other various reasons. Microneedling is also known as skin needling, due to its effects on increasing the natural production of collagen within the skin.
Microneedling came to fame for its amazing benefits when it comes to anti-aging skin treatments; however, it has also many benefits when used to treat hair loss.
Just like how it would be used for the anti-aging benefits for the skin, this treatment creates wounds in the skin to regenerate the healthy growth of hair on the scalp. These wounds create new hair growth, and can even thicken thinning hair.
Microneedling uses a roller that has tiny microscopic needles attached to it, a trained professional healthcare provider uses the microneedling roller which has needles with differing lengths of 1 millimeter to a few millimeters. The healthcare provider will roll the microneedling roller along the area getting treated, thus creating the small wounds previously brought up that help to stimulate the natural collagen production and stimulate natural hair growth.
Prior to your treatment, you may be asked if you would like a topical anesthetic applied to the scalp to help reduce any pain that you may feel during treatment.
Depending on the size of the area, the treatment can take anywhere from 10 minutes or longer. Once the area getting treatment on the scalp has been completed, our healthcare provider may apply a balm to the area or an injectable topical, this will depend on what your specific goal is during your microneedling treatment.
There is no downtime after a microneedling treatment; however, some patients have noted they have had bruising, redness, slight pain, and swelling in the area in which they had been treated. There is no risk with microneedling, so the redness, inflammation, swelling, and pain will subside within a few days after the treatment.
Microneedling is seen as a cosmetic procedure, so many insurances will not cover the cost of such a treatment. It is best if you contact your insurance provider to ask if any part of the treatment can be covered, specifically if it is considered medically necessary. Out-of-pocket costs for a microneedling treatment for hair restoration can range from $200 a session to $700 a session. The larger the area that needs to be treated, the more expensive it can become.
Another factor for the cost of a microneedling treatment will depend on where the clinic is located. Prime locations often have to pay more for their space, which will reflect the cost of the treatment.
