TRUST YOUR HAIR TO THE EXPERTS…
Micro-Needling is a new therapy that can be used for the treatment of hair loss. This process uses the Nanopore micro-needling device to precisely drive small fine needles into the skin layers. In response to these tiny puncture holes the body begins to produce chemical factors known to make your scalp and hair thrive.

What is Nanopore Micro-Needling For Hair Loss?
Nanopore Micro-Needling involves the application of medical grade topicals penetrated into the scalp tissue using controlled needling injury. These pinpricks are barely visible to the human eye.
The theory behind the micro-needling process is a controlled injury that encourages the production of collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body making it central to maintaining scalp health.
Q. Does nanopore micro-needling for hair loss work?
A. Does micro-needling truly work? The answer is yes, but this is dependent on the true cause of your hair loss. If your hair loss arises from medical conditions such as psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, or stress, you might want to reconsider addressing these underlying conditions first with your dermatologist or healthcare provider.
Individuals suffering from androgenic alopecia are best candidates for the Nanopore Micro-Needling procedure. Clinical studies have demonstrated how this procedure leads to denser and stronger scalp follicles. These follicles produce healthier hair, making micro-needling worth the effort.
As mentioned in studies highlighting micro-needling’s efficacy through strengthening the scalp follicles, other areas of research have discovered the chemical pathways behind its successfulness. A study published found that it activates the Wnt/B-catenin pathway, this signal-conducting pathway allows cells to work and communicate with each other. It also promotes expression of VEGF, which is a vascular growth factor. In other words, more development of blood vessels in the area allowing for better oxygen delivery and removal of toxins.
Q. Are there any conditions that could prevent me from undergoing nanopore micro-needling?
A. Just like other microneedling procedures, the Nanopore Micro-Needling procedure is not recommended for pregnant women. It is also not appropriate for patients with scarring or healing issues such as diabetes.
Patients taking blood thinners or other medications should disclose this information during their consultation.
Q. What can I expect during my consultation?
A. During your consultation, we will listen to your aesthetic goals and examine the extent of your hair loss. We will identify the cause of your hair loss to determine whether you will need to address the cause before undergoing the Nanopore Micro-Needling procedure.
We will also look over your medical history and ask questions about any lifestyle habits that could have led to your hair loss.
We will create a procedure plan, which will include the number of treatment sessions recommended to achieve your goals. We will also discuss aftercare instructions and the potential cost of the procedure. You can ask questions anytime.
Q. How many nanopore micro-needling treatments must I have?
A. As every patient is different in how they respond to micro-needling treatments, the average patient may require four to six treatments spaced every four to six weeks apart. It is important to note that the patient uses any topical home care products recommended by your practitioner.
Although the number of treatment sessions will be determined during your consultation, it may be increased or reduced depending on how your scalp reacts to each micro-needling treatment session.
Q. Does nanopore micro-needling for hair loss hurt?
A. Prior to the Nanopore micro-needling treatment, an anesthetic gel is gently applied over the target areas ensuring that patient will feel comfortable throughout the procedure. Several micro injuries are made on the skin penetrating the dermal layer of the skin. So, you might feel slight discomfort and its intensity depends on the sensitivity of your skin.
Q. Are there any side effects with nanopore micro-needling?
A. As with any treatment, some patients may experience some of the following: mild temporary redness in the area of treatment, fluid release from follicles, milia, or exacerbation of dermatological conditions.
Q. When will I begin to see results with nanopore micro-needling?
A. It can take up to nine months for micro-needling to reveal its effects on the skin. Studies have noted changes within three months of treatment, and more full effects after six months. The exact timeline will vary, using the prescribed topicals as directed will further assist in this process.
Q. How much does nanopore micro-needling cost?
A. The price of each Nanopore micro-needling treatment session for hair loss will depend on several factors. The total cost may be affected by the number of treatment sessions required to achieve your goals, along with the specific areas of the scalp that are targeted for treatment.
