    TLDR Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma can improve different types of hair loss.
    In 2016, a study was conducted on three patients suffering from different types of alopecia: cicatricial alopecia, traction alopecia, and alopecia areata. The patients were treated with twenty sessions of automated microneedling combined with platelet-rich plasma, with sessions conducted every two weeks. The results showed marked clinical improvement in all three cases, with varying degrees of patient satisfaction. The study concluded that automated microneedling could potentially be a successful future procedure for treating these types of alopecia.
