What is microneedling for hair restoration?

At Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics, microneedling is done with the SkinPen. This is the only FDA-approved device for microneedling, making use of disposable cartridges – meaning there is no danger of cross contamination between clients.

The SkinPen uses tiny, adjustable needles to make controlled punctures in the upper layer of the skin of your scalp. This sounds scarier than it really is; the needles only penetrate the very top layer of the skin, and numbing cream is used before the treatment to ensure as little discomfort as possible.

Microneedling is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time, however you are advised to take extra care of your sensitive skin for the first 24 hours to prevent the possibility of infection.

It’s very normal to experience some redness and swelling for a few days following the treatment, as well as occasional bruising, and patients are given a specially designed post-procedure kit to help you care for your skin immediately after treatment.

What are the benefits of microneedling for hair restoration?

Used as part of a long-term hair loss treatment plan, microneedling can help to restore the scalp’s overall health and ability to support hair growth.

Microneedling helps our skin to heal and renew itself, by shedding the dead and dry old skin and promoting the growth of new skin cells. The treatment encourages blood circulation to the scalp, and helps the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which are important for healthy hair follicles and hair growth.

I qualified as dentist in 2007 and have since gained a Level 7 qualification in injectable treatments (the highest possible), so you can trust that I have the skills and knowledge to deliver your treatment safely and successfully.

I completed a six-month mentorship programme with Dr Lee Walker (a leader in the industry), which has ensured I am working with the most evidenced-based research in aesthetics. I also recently took part in an ultrasound and cadaver course, which allows me to see where blood vessels are and reduce the risk of complications.

In addition, I am a senior clinical mentor, an international speaker and a key opinion leader for a dermal filler brand, demonstrating my extensive experience training other medical aesthetic practitioners.

My team and I are fully trained and equipped to manage any adverse events that may occur, thanks to my training and membership of the Complications in Medical Aesthetic Collaborative (CMAC). You can trust you are in safe hands when you undergo any treatment at my clinic.
