It is a stressful time when you start losing your hair. It’s even worse for the people who experience loss of hair when they are still relatively young. Men and women can lose hair to due to stress, thyroid disease, anemia, and poor diet, just to name a few. It’s important to establish the cause once you notice thinning or balding, as it’s best to tackle the problem at the root of the cause – and not just mask the symptoms with a pill or cream.

With that said, it’s completely normal to lose about 100 strands of hair each day due to natural shedding. During the hair’s natural growth cycle, those shed hairs are being replaced constantly. Should your hair be thinning more than the normal rate, a derma roller could be a great tool to improve your hairs’ growth cycle.

One of the favourite hair regrowth techniques that have yielded great results for countless individuals who had been previously battling hair loss – the dermaroller. The dermaroller stimulates the production of proteins that are responsible for the development of new hair follicles by increasing blood circulation & thereby promoting nutrients to flow more easily to your follicles, resulting in new hair growth.

This can potentially lead to significant improvements for people with male pattern baldness and alopecia. 

Dermaroller is a hand-held device with a cylindrical roller that is studded with tiny micro-needles usually made of titanium. The needles are used to make tiny pinpricks into the skin. The needles penetrate into the dermis deep enough to stimulate the production of new cells and boost circulation. As these are very tiny, they cause minimum skin damage or pain.

Research has proven that dermarolling is effective in treating hair loss and safe for your scalp and hair. It is also more effective when pairing with a natural hair growth tonic. Dermarollers help to preserve your existing hair and stem cells are produced in the skin, increasing the growth of your hair.

What is the mechanism behind micro-needling?

These are the main four points describing how dermarolling benefits your hair:

  • It triggers the body’s natural reaction to initiate the wound healing process.
  • Stem cells are triggered in the scalp’s hair follicles, and then they induce the hair growth process.
  • It increases blood supply to the scalp. That helps to distribute nutrients that your hair follicles require to have any substantial hair growth.
  • It assists the absorption of topical hair loss tonics.

0.5mm dermarollers boost the absorption of topical scalp tonics. Dermaroller with longer needles (1.5 mm), on the other hand, significantly boosts the production of endothelial growth factors for hair, as it reaches the hair bulge region. Such dermarollers for hair growth are the most effective.

Ideally, you should use it once every 3-4 weeks, not shorter than that. Especially when longer needles (1.5mm) are used, as you need time for cells to regenerate.

If the procedure is painful and makes you feel uncomfortable, it can be managed by applying slightly less pressure against the skin or using numbing cream.

When using a 1.5mm dermaroller you will probably experience pinprick bleeding which is completely normal as the needles penetrate the skin. Consider waiting at least 24 hours before applying your topical hair loss product as to not overwhelm the skin.
