Why does Dermal Needling Work?
Scientists suggest that the dermal needling works by triggering the production of human growth factor. When the scalp is needled, it causes minor surface wounds to the tissue. The body must then work to repair the skin in the area of the wound and releases the human growth hormone and other chemicals to assist with this process. Supporters of dermal needling believe that when these chemicals are released they also stimulate the growth of hair in the affected area, which can help begin regrowth in areas of thinning.
The Dermal Needling Study
The study that triggered the use of micro needling for hair loss treatment was conducted by a team at the Department of Dermatology at L.T.M. Medical College and General Hospital in Sion, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. In the study, 100 men who were currently using 5 percent minoxidil were divided into two groups. One group continued using only minoxidil for hair loss treatment, while the other group underwent a micro needling treatment once per week and used minoxidil the other 6 days. At the end of the 12-week study, the men who only used minoxidil had an average of 17 more hairs, while those treated with dermal needling had an average of 91 more hairs. Neither group reported any adverse effects.
Subsequently there have been numerous studies done on the subject and we encourage you to research these studies.
