Hair Loss

Microchanneling is a versatile treatment and is used for more than cosmetic facial treatments. In some instances, microchanneling can be used for hair loss. Microchanneling is a fantastic option when it comes to the hair regrowth process.

Regarding hair restoration, however, hair loss can be quite a traumatic experience in some instances. Often, people don’t simply want to sit back and allow their hair to fall out. Intervention is often possible and is a route that’s frequently taken. Microchanneling is an accessible, effective option when it comes to the hair regrowth process.

Furthermore, a number of people appreciate the fact that microchanneling is a non-surgical process. This is favorable for a number of reasons, including the lack of a recovery time, as would be the case following a surgical procedure. After receiving a microchanneling treatment, you’re free to return to your life, without being temporarily sequestered to your bed, or other recovery concerns.

If you’re currently experiencing hair loss, then consider microchanneling of the scalp as a viable option.

The basics of microchanneling for nonsurgical hair restoration and the science behind it)

So, what exactly does microchanneling treatment do to promote hair growth?

There are a few factors involved in the process:

1. Microchanneling Helps Increase Collagen Production

The tiny needles used during a microchanneling procedure, whether on the face or on the scalp, are able to stimulate collagen production. But how does this benefit your scalp? How does it promote hair growth?

It’s important to note that nearly 80% of your skin is made up of collagen. As such, collagen is a vital component of strong, structurally sound skin. However, as we age, our collagen begins to decline. This process can begin as early as the mid-20s.

Collagen in your scalp provides the scaffolding for hair follicles. This allows follicles to remain healthy, allowing them to continue growing hair. When your scalp is suffering from a lack of collagen, you’re likely to see a slowing in hair growth — in extreme cases, your follicles may become dormant altogether.

2. Microchanneling Treatment Increases Blood Flow to Your Scalp

As many of us already know, blood flow is crucial to the overall health of our bodies. This includes hair follicles. When you have increased blood flow to the scalp, the area is being supplied with a greater amount of nutrients and oxygen. In this way, the hair follicles are receiving all the necessary supplies to grow healthy, strong hair.

When you undergo a microchanneling treatment for hair restoration, blood is immediately encouraged to surge to the scalp. This is because the needles involved in the treatment are opening blood vessels in the scalp, leading to blood rushing to the micro punctures.

3. The Treatment Stimulates Stem Cells

Perhaps unsurprisingly, microchanneling is fantastic for stimulating stem cells in your scalp. When the scalp receives a microchanneling treatment, stem cells found deep inside your hair follicles are stimulated. Thus, these stimulated stem cells trigger growth factor production within the area. This provides yet another boost to healthy hair growth.

4. Microchanneling Improves Absorption of Serums and Topical Medications

Maybe you’re already on a medicated hair regrowth regime, applying topical medications such as Finasteride or Minoxidil. If this is the case, following your microchanneling session, you can expect improved penetration of these medications. Hair follicles can be found around 1-2 millimeters beneath the surface of the scalp. When these follicles are opened up, thanks to micro punctures, medication will have easier, more direct access to the follicles. 

If you use other topical serums such as GrandeHAIR following your microchanneling session, you can expect improved penetration of this serum. When these follicles are opened up, thanks to micro punctures, serums will have easier, more direct access to the follicles. However, I recommend waiting to use your home care treatment until the next day. This allows the serum that was used in your treatment to work well over night before washing your hair, drying and applying the serum.


At Blush Lash & Nail Bar I use two different types of hair growth serums depending on the clients needs. Procell Pure Stem Cells and Fusion Mesotherapy: F Hair Men. However, the delivery method for both products is done with ProCell Therapies Multi-Tool Stamper. Benefits of microchanneling "stamping" vs microneedling are:

  • Extremely shortened down time - typically 60-90 minutes.

  • Linear stamping technique results in substantially decreased discomfort for clients.

  • Procedure times cut in half with variety of tip sizes for different size areas.

What is Fusion Mesotherapy

A highly concentrated serum of growth factors is infused directly into the cells using a technique called stamping. This produces tiny puncture wounds into the scalp allows the serum to penetrate. (see diagram above) F-HAIR MEN treats effectively alopecia with a blend of peptides, growth factors, organic silicium, panthenol and hyaluronic acid. It preserves hair follicle stem cell (HFSC) activity, modulates DHT via 5-alpha-reductase activity inhibition, stimulates ECM renewal, anchoring proteins synthesis and decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines. It also prevents inflammation which is a contributing factor in hair loss.


There is no downtime, although it is recommended that direct sun exposure be avoided.

Hair restoration using Procell pure stem cells


What are the advantages ?

What is Procell? And how does it work, when used as a part of your stem cell microchanneling treatment for hair restoration? Procell pure stem cells are packed full of growth factors. So, they can do more to help encourage hair regrowth than undergoing a standard microchanneling treatment.

These growth factors include:

  • Cytokines

  • TGF-β3

  • Protective antioxidants

  • Potent peptides

Procell makes use of conditioned media, sourced from stem cells in human bone marrow culture. Specifically, these cells are known as BM-MSCs. These cells play a vital role in the body’s healing processes, throughout our lives. However, as we age, our production of BM-MSCs begins to decrease. The BM-MSCs found in Procell are sourced from young, healthy volunteers, who undergo heavy medical moderation, during the process. These stem cells are then kept in FDA-regulated facilities, where they can grow and be processed.

Essentially, the use of Procell pure stem cells ensures an even more powerful effect on hair growth, thanks to the additional growth factors.

What to expect during your microchanneling treatment

During your microchanneling session, your scalp will come into direct contact with wire filaments, which are attached to a gun/machine; it makes up the "stamper". These filaments are very small and very fine. The stamper is worked along the scalp, right at the site of the hair loss. The filaments will then create tiny injuries to the scalp area.

Do to the location of the treatment, a topical anesthetic cannot be used directly onto your scalp; the few hairs get in the way and block the product from getting onto the scalp and just get applied to stray hairs. This would be done to help reduce any pain, given the nature of the treatment. However, It is a very quick treatment and the pain is tolerable and the serum applied to the area does offer a soothing comfort. Depending on how large the treatment area is, the length of the treatment can vary. Still, stem cell microchanneling is generally a fast treatment — in most cases, it will take less than ten to fifteen minutes. After that, you’re done! It’s as simple and easy as that.

Following your microneedling treatment, you might see some bruising, redness, or swelling on the affected area of the scalp. There may also be a small amount of pain, following the procedure. However, most side effects of a microchanneling procedure will fade within around five days of the treatment. microchanneling is a non-invasive procedure, so there’s no need to pause your daily life in order to recover.

Top three advantages of hair restoration using microchanneling 

As a non-surgical treatment option for hair loss, microchanneling comes with a variety of advantages over surgical hair restoration treatments.

These include:

Hair regrowth results: What to expect

Like any hair restoration treatment, different people will see different outcomes. In some cases, the microchanneling treatment will be more effective than in others.

Also, as with any treatment of this nature, you probably won’t know how your body responds until you’ve tried it yourself. Still, when it comes to procedures with as much promise as microchanneling, your chances of a positive outcome are favorable.

Before      & After


How many treatments do I need?

Fusion: An initial course of 6 treatments held weekly is required, followed by 6 weeks off then reevaluate if another 6 future treatment course is needed. In the meantime a continual use of the home care kit; shampoo/conditioner and vitamins is recommended to maintain results. Additional treatments may be required yearly to stimulate the follicles if needed. 

Procell: Note that most therapies requires 5 treatments 2 weeks apart when first starting out. However, the actual number of treatments needed varies per client. As with Fusion after a 6 week break a re-evaluation of the scalp is needed to determine if additional treatments are needed. In the meantime a continual use of the home care kit; shampoo/conditioner and vitamins is recommended to maintain results. Additional treatments may be required yearly to stimulate the follicles if needed. 

The cost of microchanneling for hair loss recovery treatment

Compared to surgical hair restoration options, microchanneling is truly a bargain. For instance, if you’ve ever considered a hair transplant, you may have been disheartened during your research. After all, while this surgical procedure is popular and effective, it comes at a very high price. Depending on where you receive your hair transplant, you can expect to pay several thousand dollars. In some cases, you could expect to pay as much as $10,000 — and there are even $20,000 options out there.

For some people suffering from hair loss, whether minor or severe, the high cost of a surgical hair transplant may not be worth it. Maybe you’re bothered by your hair loss, but not to the extent that you’re willing to pay a large sum of money to correct the issue. Or maybe the cost is simply outside your budget, whether or not you’d be willing to hand over the money.

This is a fantastic reason to consider a more affordable (but still effective) procedure, such as microchanneling hair recovery procedures, in general, cost only a small fraction of what you’d pay for a surgical hair restoration procedure.

At Blush Lash & Nail Bar, you’ll pay just $1400 for 6 weekly microchanneling hair loss recovery treatments and your home care starter kit.

  • Six treatments (1 per week)
