An alternative to the traditional microneedle roller. The AO SkinStamp provides a less painful experience, as its needle penetration occurs in a more uniform matter over a larger area of skin. Traditional rollers also tend to become entangled with medium to long hair if one is not careful with its use. The AO SkinStamp avoids this problem as there are no moving parts.

Microneedling has been reported to be a promising, effective and a safe treatment modality in the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia (male/female pattern hair loss). Its use with Minoxidil solutions has been shown to be superior than just using Minoxidil alone.

Microneedling induces hair regrowth via the following:

  • Release of platelet-derived growth factor and epidermal growth factors are increased through platelet activation and skin wound regeneration mechanism.
  • Activation of stem cells in the hair bulge area under wound healing conditions.
  • Increases skin permeability allowing for increased penetration of active ingredients such as Minoxidil, maximising its effectiveness.
