Many people experience temporary or permanent hair loss. However, for men and women alike, this can cause feelings of embarrassment and a significant decrease in self-esteem. Among its various causes are aging, stress, genetics, and hormonal changes. While some of these are natural and unavoidable, it does not make their effects any less impactful.
Fortunately, Reen Medical Group offers non-surgical treatment options that can help stimulate hair growth for those looking for a less invasive option than transplant surgery.

How is Microneedling Used as a Hair Loss Treatment?
As cosmetic procedures have advanced throughout the years, physicians have discovered new techniques to help with hair loss, including microneedling. Those familiar with microneedling might think it is only a treatment for wrinkles, acne scarring, or other concerns with skin texture and tone. SkinPen microneedling, however, is also a proven procedure for treating hair loss, with minimal side effects and short recovery times.
The microneedling technique used to treat hair loss in Tehachapi is similar to traditional microneedling treatments. A handheld device containing multiple tiny needles is passed over the surface of your skin to create micro-injuries in the area where hair should be growing. These micro-injuries cause your body to produce new skin cells to replace the damaged ones and boost collagen, the protein that promotes elasticity and hydration in the skin.
When used for hair loss, Dr. Reen will identify areas of hair thinning and target those areas with the SkinPen microneedling device. In response, your scalp produces new follicle cells and replaces damaged ones, leading to new hair growth. Creating micro-injuries also promotes deeper absorption of ointments and steroids by the scalp if other hair loss treatments are utilized alongside microneedling.
What to Expect During a Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatment
Typically, hair loss treatments in Tehachapi last approximately one hour. The aesthetic team will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area beforehand to reduce discomfort during the procedure. This will usually take 45 minutes to reach full effect, with the microneedling itself taking only ten minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Some mild skin irritation, redness, and swelling might occur but should resolve within five days to a week, and it is essential to avoid sun exposure during this time to ensure proper healing.
Most patients require multiple microneedling sessions to fully address their hair loss concerns. The number of sessions you need will depend on your body’s response to the microneedling and the extent of your hair loss, though you should anticipate anywhere from four to 12 sessions. The expected scope of treatment will be explained at length and customized to your individual needs and concerns during your initial comprehensive consultation.
