For the uninitiated, Microneedling might not sound like an entirely appealing treatment process. Furthermore, given the youth and mystique around Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) stem cell treatments, the combination of the two might sound like a hard sell. This is understandable, but the reality of using these two treatments together can result in a very promising outcome.
The combination of these two separate forms of hair loss treatment can completely rejuvenate previously foregone bald spots, prompting unprecedented growth and revitalisation of scalp health.

What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that utilises a mechanical microneedle pen to perforate the skin, on and around the scalp, multiple times. This process creates a number of controlled, minor wounds which stimulate the bodies growth processes which in turn produces collagen. Collagen then begins to repair the tissue around hair follicles.
This treatment stimulates hair regrowth by stimulating the regeneration of skin tissue, providing a healthier environment for hair follicles to grow.
What are PRP Treatments?
To understand how platelet rich plasma treatments assist in hair growth, it is necessary to understand the role of stem cells. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells which can be used to target and address a number of issues. Stem cells are useful because they can be developed into a variety of cell types, and importantly, they can be developed into cells that support the growth of hair.
Some of the world’s largest medical authorities have only recently approved PRP treatment. Therefore, research data is not currently comprehensive. However, it has been effectively used to treat some of the following debilitating diseases:
- Spinal Injuries
- Ligament damage
- Muscle tears
A PRP injection comprises a concentrated dose of platelets which are directed to areas with poor blood flow. The platelets then form clots and release signalling molecules, called growth factors, which direct the body to spend energy and resources in repairing the affected area.
What this means for anyone suffering from hair loss is a ‘kickstart’ to the bodies repair mechanisms which then regenerate tissue at a much faster rate. The process also has the added bonus of flushing out inflammation and disease that may have caused balding in the first instance.
Whilst these two treatments are moderately effective individually, they really shine when applied together. Microneedling stimulates the release of growth factors in and around the scalp, essentially priming the platelets and the stem cells in the plasma to perform faster.
While growth factors are released naturally, having more in abundance nearby the target areas for cellular regeneration can help to increase the rate at which healing occurs and also speeds recovery.
These treatments are suitable for treating a whole range of hair loss types. Even when combined, these treatments are low-risk, relatively non-invasive and painless (as topical anaesthetics are applied beforehand). The advantages are enormous, as skin is completely revitalised thereby giving hair follicles a fighting chance to do their job.
