Micro-needling for Hair Loss

Microneedling for hair loss

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has gained popularity in recent years as a treatment for various skin concerns, including acne scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. However, micro-needling is also showing promise as a treatment for hair loss, particularly when combined with other therapies like red light therapy.

What is Micro-needling for Hair Loss?

Micro-needling for hair loss involves using a derma roller or a micro-needling device to create tiny punctures in the scalp. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing response, increasing blood flow to the scalp and promoting the production of collagen and other growth factors. This, in turn, can strengthen hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.

Benefits of Micro-needling for Hair Loss

  • Increased Blood Flow: Micro-needling increases blood flow to the scalp, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, which can help promote hair growth.
  • Stimulation of Hair Follicles: The micro-injuries created during micro-needling stimulate dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the active growth phase.
  • Improved Absorption of Topical Treatments: Micro-needling creates microchannels in the scalp, allowing topical treatments such as minoxidil to penetrate deeper and be more effective.

How Capillus Red Light Therapy Enhances Micro-needling Results

Capillus uses red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), a non-invasive treatment that uses red and near-infrared light to help stimulate hair follicles, help improve cellular metabolism, and help promote hair growth. When used in conjunction with micro-needling, Capillus with red light therapy can enhance the results of micro-needling in several ways:

  • Increased Effectiveness: Red light therapy can help enhance the effectiveness of micro-needling by further stimulating hair follicles and promoting hair growth.
  • Faster Healing: Red light therapy can help speed up the healing process after micro-needling, reducing downtime and allowing for quicker results.
  • Improved Hair Quality: Red light therapy can help improve the overall quality of the hair, making it thicker, stronger, and more resilient.


Micro-needling is a promising treatment for hair loss, with the potential to stimulate hair growth and improve hair quality. When combined with Capillus, the results can be even more impressive. If you're struggling with hair loss, consider exploring micro-needling and red light therapy with Capillus as a non-invasive and effective treatment option.
