Losing your hair is very personal, so people often search for ways to combat hair loss. Forget invasive surgeries or crazy looking wigs for hair loss. Microchanneling for hair is a way to help regrow your natural hair with no restrictions. It allows you to recapture your youth and your confidence by looking and feeling your very best. 

Recently, microchanneling has only been used to restore the youthful appearance of skin. Professionals found that it was not only extremely effective in that regard but when used in certain areas, it also promoted hair growth. Here are 5 common questions people have about microchanneling for hair growth. 

1. How is microchanneling different from microneedling?

Microneedling involves the use of a medical grade device to puncture the skin with multiple small needles. These thin needles create ‘micro injuries’ which promote healing, collagen production, and rejuvenation. Microchanneling involves wire-based filaments for deep exfoliation which is less abrasive and minimally invasive.

Microchanneling causes very little skin damage to produce similar or better results. The most basic difference between the two procedures is the device used. 

2. How does microchanneling for hair growth work?

Microchanneling for hair growth works similar to the way microneedling works for the skin. The gentle exfoliation with the wire-based filaments kickstarts your body’s healing response. The procedure is performed on the scalp in the area of hair loss. Part of the body’s natural healing response includes the production of hair growth factors which jumpstarts hair growth. 

3. Does the microchanneling process hurt?

No, it does not. Microchanneling is painless for most people. Even though the  process is non-invasive, each patient’s pain tolerance is different, and some may experience a bit of discomfort. However, a topical numbing solution can be applied to the treatment area if necessary to ensure each patient has a pleasurable experience. 

4. When can I expect to see results?

This is a common question as every patient is excited to see real results. Every patient is unique, and we recommend a minimum of 4 sessions. Some patients often see results after 2 sessions while other patients require more. Many environmental and personal components influence the time it takes to see results. Some patients begin to see their desired results sooner than others.  

5. Are Results Guaranteed?

There was a medical study performed with 100 random participants in 2013. All participants shaved their heads, and they were divided into 2 groups. One group used minoxidil twice daily and the other group had a weekly microchanneling for hair growth procedure. After 12 weeks it was painfully apparent that the group undergoing the microchanneling procedure experienced more hair growth.

Every participant in that group experienced more hair care that was stronger and thicker than the group using minoxidil only. While results are not 100 percent guaranteed for every patient, they have been scientifically proven and are extremely likely.
