Understanding MMP Scalp Microinfusion

MMP®, short for Micro-Medical Pigmentation, is a procedure involving the delivery of a blend of micronutrients directly to the hair follicles using a device with minuscule needles. These compounds generally include growth factors, vitamins, enzyme blockers, and amino acids. The specifics of the treatment are determined by a specialist and vary based on individual needs.

MMP Scalp Microinfusion can treat several hair loss conditions like androgenetic alopecia, female pattern hair loss, hair thinning and damage resulting from chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Unlike many scalp treatments that only address the symptoms, MMP delves into the underlying causes of hair loss.

The procedure, normally performed in a doctor’s office or medical spa, takes about an hour with no downtime required.

Tools and Techniques Used in MMP Scalp Microinfusion

MMP® Scalp Microinfusion is a type of scalp microinfusion that uses a proprietary device called the MMP® Dermapen.

MMP® Dermapen is a medical device that uses microneedling to deliver nutrients and medications to the skin. It is a handheld device with a pen-like shape. The device has a range of microneedles that create tiny punctures in the skin. These punctures allow for the delivery of nutrients and medications to the deeper layers of the skin.

Micronutrients Used in MMP Scalp Microinfusion

The micronutrients that are typically used in MMP Scalp Microinfusion include:

  • Adenosine triphosphate (ATP): ATP is the body’s main source of energy. It is essential for cell function and growth.

These micronutrients work together to promote hair growth by providing the hair follicles with the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. They also help to protect the scalp from damage and inflammation, which can contribute to hair loss.

Benefits of MMP Scalp Microinfusion

MMP Scalp Microinfusion is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting medications, nutrients, and growth factors into the scalp. It is a newer hair loss treatment that has been shown to be effective in stimulating hair growth.

MMP Scalp Microinfusion comes with several benefits:

  • Enhanced hair density and thickness
  • Minimized hair loss and thinning
  • Improved scalp health and circulation
  • Boosted confidence and self-esteem
  • Minimal invasiveness with little downtime and no scarring
  • Few side effects, indicating a safe procedure

Disadvantages of MMP Scalp Microinfusion

Here are some of the disadvantages of MMP Scalp Microinfusion:

  • It is a more expensive hair loss treatment than some other options.
  • It requires multiple treatments to see results.
  • The results of the treatment may not last forever.

Overall, MMP Scalp Microinfusion is a safe and effective hair loss treatment that can be used to treat a variety of hair loss conditions. This treatment is often used post-operatively for those who have undergone hair transplantation.

MMP Scalp Microinfusion vs Hair Transplantation

1. Procedure:

MMP Scalp Microinfusion leverages a microneedling technique to infuse a blend of growth factors, vitamins, enzyme blockers, and amino acids directly into the scalp, targeting the underlying causes of hair loss. On the contrary, hair transplantation involves moving hair follicles from one part of the scalp (donor site) to the area where hair is thinning or lost (recipient site).

2. Invasiveness:

MMP Scalp Microinfusion is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that usually takes about an hour to complete with no downtime. Hair transplantation, however, is a surgical procedure and while it can yield significant results, it requires a healing period and the potential for minor scarring.

3. Pain and Comfort:

While MMP Scalp Microinfusion involves microneedles, it tends to cause minimal discomfort and often is practically pain-free. Hair transplantation, although conducted under local anesthesia, is a surgical procedure and may involve some discomfort, both during and after the procedure.

4. Recovery Time:

One of the significant advantages of MMP Scalp Microinfusion is the quick recovery time. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Hair transplantation, however, often requires a few days of recovery, during which strenuous activities should be avoided.

5. Effectiveness and Results:

Both procedures have proven effective in treating hair loss, but the results can vary. Hair transplantation has the advantage of being a one-time procedure with lasting results. However, not all transplanted hair follicles survive the process, and subsequent treatments may be necessary. MMP Scalp Microinfusion, on the other hand, promotes natural hair growth by boosting scalp health, but it requires multiple treatments and the results may take time to become noticeable.

6. Cost:

Hair transplantation is generally more expensive than MMP Scalp Microinfusion due to its surgical nature and the need for skilled surgical professionals. The cost for MMP Scalp Microinfusion may vary depending on the number of sessions required but is usually more affordable when compared to hair transplantation.

In conclusion, while both MMP Scalp Microinfusion and hair transplantation can be effective, they cater to different needs and circumstances. It’s important for prospective patients to consider their specific case.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for MMP Scalp Microinfusion?

MMP is an effective treatment for hair thinning or complete baldness. It can be used before or after a hair transplant procedure. Men and women of all ages are eligible, but a medical diagnosis is required. People with blood clotting disorders should not receive this treatment.

  • Individuals with thinning hair or hair loss
  • People looking for a non-surgical solution
  • People who have undergone hair transplantation

The best hair loss treatment for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Talk to your doctor to discuss the different options available and find the one that is right for you.

Preparing for the MMP Scalp Microinfusion Procedure

Here are some preparations and tips to help ensure a successful MMP Scalp Microinfusion procedure:

  • Talk to your doctor about your expectations for the procedure. Make sure you understand the risks and benefits of MMP Scalp Microinfusion before you decide to have the procedure done.
  • Stop taking any medications that can thin your blood, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for at least two weeks before the procedure. These medications can increase the risk of bleeding during the procedure.
  • Wash your hair the night before the procedure. This will help to remove any dirt or oil from your scalp that could interfere with the procedure.

  • Eat a healthy meal before the procedure. This will give you the energy you need to get through the procedure.
  • Bring a hat or scarf to wear home from the procedure. Your scalp may be red and irritated after the procedure, so it is a good idea to cover it up.

Here are some additional tips for after your MMP Scalp Microinfusion procedure:

  • Avoid washing your hair for 24 hours after the procedure. After that, you can wash your hair as usual, but be gentle.
  • Avoid using any harsh shampoos or conditioners for the first few weeks after the procedure. These products can irritate your scalp.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner to help keep your hair hydrated.
  • Bring a hat or scarf to wear after the procedure to protect your scalp from the sun and wind.
  • Be patient. It takes time to see results from MMP Scalp Microinfusion. You may not see any noticeable results for several months.

Procedure: The procedure typically takes about an hour to complete. The doctor or technician will use the MMP® Dermapen to create tiny punctures in the scalp. The depth of the punctures will vary depending on the individual’s needs and goals.

Application of nutrients and medications: The doctor or technician will then apply a solution of nutrients and medications to the scalp. The solution will be customized to the individual’s needs.

If you have any questions or concerns about MMP Scalp Microinfusion, be sure to talk to your doctor.

Post-Procedure Care

After MMP Scalp Microinfusion, you may experience some redness, swelling, and bleeding. This is normal and should go away within a few days. Here are some tips on how to care for your scalp after the procedure:

  • Rest: It is important to rest after the procedure. Avoid strenuous activity for a few days.
  • Ice: Apply ice to your scalp for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. This will help to reduce swelling and pain.
  • Moisturize: Keep your scalp moisturized with a gentle lotion or cream. This will help to prevent itching and flaking.
  • Avoid washing your hair for 24 hours: This will help to keep the punctures in your scalp clean and protected.
  • Use a gentle shampoo: After 24 hours, you can start washing your hair with a gentle shampoo. Avoid using harsh shampoos or conditioners.

  • See your doctor if you have any concerns: If you have any concerns about your scalp after the procedure, be sure to see your doctor.

Potential discomfort and pain management

Bandage: You may need to wear a bandage on your scalp for a few days to protect the punctures.

Recovery: The recovery time for MMP Scalp Microinfusion is typically short. You may experience some redness, swelling, and bleeding after the procedure. This is normal and should go away within a few days. You should avoid strenuous activity for a few days after the procedure.

What To Expect After the Procedure?

The results of MMP Scalp Microinfusion typically start to appear after a few weeks and continue to improve for several months. The number of treatment sessions will vary depending on the individual’s needs and goals. Some people see significant hair growth, while others see only a slight improvement.

Follow-Up Appointments and Touch-Ups

Typically, you will need to have follow-up appointments after your MMP Scalp Microinfusion procedure. The number of follow-up appointments will vary depending on your individual needs, but most people need to have 3-6 appointments over the course of a year.

During your follow-up appointments, your doctor will assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. They may also recommend touch-up treatments, which are additional injections of medications, nutrients, and growth factors.

Touch-up treatments are typically done every 4-6 months. They can help to maintain the results of your MMP Scalp Microinfusion procedure and keep your hair looking healthy.

Possible MMP Scalp Microinfusion Contraindications

MMP Scalp Microinfusion is a generally safe procedure, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Here are some potential contraindications:

  • Skin Conditions: People with certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, or dermatitis on the scalp, may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. These conditions can make the skin more sensitive and more prone to damage or infection during the procedure.
  • Recent Hair Transplants: If you’ve recently had a hair transplant, your scalp may need time to heal before undergoing further treatments like MMP Scalp Microinfusion.
  • Pregnancy & Breastfeeding: MMP Scalp Microinfusion may not be recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women due to a lack of research on its effects in these particular cases.
  • Allergies: If you have known allergies to any of the micronutrients or medications used in the MMP Scalp Microinfusion treatment, you should discuss this with your dermatologist or doctor beforehand.
  • Blood Clotting Disorders: If you have a blood clotting disorder, MMP Scalp Microinfusion might not be suitable for you. As the procedure includes micro-needling, it could potentially cause issues with bleeding or bruising.
  • Immunosuppression: If you have a weakened immune system due to illness or medication (such as chemotherapy), you may be more prone to infection after the procedure.

It’s important to disclose your full medical history to your doctor or dermatologist before undergoing any procedure like MMP Scalp Microinfusion. They can provide you with personalized advice based on your health and medical history.

How Much Does an MMP® Scalp Microinfusion Session Cost?

The cost of an MMP session in Rio de Janeiro can range from R$800 to R$1000. This cost may vary depending on extent of hair loss, necessary medications, and the number of sessions needed. To get the most accurate cost, make an assessment with a specialist in hair loss treatment.

How Many MMP Sessions Are Needed?

Sessions last approximately 45 minutes and should be spaced at least 20-30 days apart.

What Is the Recovery Process Like After MMP Treatment?

Although MMP is a secure, low-risk procedure, after the procedure, it is important for the patient to take precautionary measures, such as:

  • Do not wash your hair before your session; for ongoing sessions, use your usual shampoo after the first day. 
  • Avoid direct sunlight for 2–3 days after the session.

Post treatment, some redness in the treated area is normal. This reaction is temporary and should fade in a short period of time. If any other reactions appear, seek medical advice right away.

How Long Until MMP Treatment Results Are Visible?

Evidence suggests MMP is effective, however, results can vary greatly between organisms and the time it takes to become visible. Starting treatment sooner is beneficial, as it will achieve better results in a shorter time frame.
