In the age of blowout bars, crazy dye jobs, and flatirons, you could be doing some serious damage to your hair. With all these extreme beauty regimes, your hair may be getting thinner, losing its elasticity. Age, diet and hormones can also affect the strength of your hair and its regrowth. Before you start feeling hopeless because you’d sooner sell your soul than give up your flat iron, consider that even wrecked hair can be revived with great new treatment!
Just like the skin on our face, the scalp also loses collagen as we age, resulting in slow hair growth and dormant hair follicles. While collagen is most well-known as the protein that helps keep your face firm and young-looking, it’s also essential for hair health. In fact, both collagen and hair follicles exist within the same layer of the skin — the dermis — and when collagen production slows down, this can affect the strength of your hair follicles.
Luckily, Ottawa Microneedling is a great way to rev up your natural production of the protein. Microneedles lead to tiny insults in the dermis, or micro-injuries causing a natural healing reaction. This prompts the skin to stimulate collagen production in response.
The theory being that “wounding” the skin with medical grade micro-needles stimulates a healing response and kick starts the production of collagen as part of the healing process, which leads to thicker, healthier hair.
Microneedling also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair. Microneedling is a safe and an upcoming treatment for rejuvenation, stimulation, and regrowth, and is effective to treat hair loss.
While microneedling was once used for skin rejuvenation only, today it proves useful in reducing hair loss and promoting hair growth.
