Micro-needling and Alopecia Treatment

Microneedling increases blood supply to the hair follicles, and the reciprocating action of the Pen stimulates the dermal papilla and stem cells.  This collagen induction has been shown to promote healthy hair growth and is the safest method of collagen induction therapy.

Microneedling leaves the epidermis (outer layers of the skin) undamaged and intact because it is non-intrusive; like Acupuncture.  Micro-needling uses common topical scalp treatment products usually used to treat hair loss, but the absorption is increased by 5 times or more.  After the procedure, the scalp will naturally heal itself.

Although treating Alopecia with Microneedling or INNOPen is relatively new, it has been proven effective on multiple clients.  It is suitable for hair loss in both men and women.
