What is a Derma Roller?
A derma roller is a small handheld device that resembles a paint roller but it has a handle and a barrel covered in tiny needles. The needles are tiny about the size of a pin, and they’re used to make small punctures in the skin. The small punctures are used to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, including the production of collagen and new skin cells. Some people use derma rollers for various skin treatments like appearance of scars, wrinkles, and promoting hair growth by stimulating blood flow to the follicles.
How do Derma Rollers Work?
Derma rollers can stimulate hair growth and in this section, we will discuss how the tool works!
The small needles on a derma roller create minor injuries in the skin, including the scalp. As a result, the body’s response to these micro-injuries involves releasing growth properties and initiating a healing process. This healing process stimulate improved blood flow which means more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the hair follicles, which can stimulate growth.
Using a derma roller before applying topical treatments, such as hair growth serums or minoxidil, may enhance their absorption. The small holes or channels created by the needles allow these products to penetrate the scalp more effectively which can stimulate growth.
Stem Cell Activation
The derma rollers through the punctured holes activate the stem cells that stimulate the follicles which leads to hair growth.
Using Derma Rollers for Hair Growth
Different needle lengths are appropriate for various purposes. Shorter needles (0.25-0.5mm) are suitable for better absorption of topical products, while longer needles (0.5-1.5mm) can penetrate deeper into the skin to stimulate blood circulation, you will need to decide what is best for you. Before and after each use, make sure to clean the derma roller thoroughly with rubbing alcohol or a special disinfectant. You should ensure that your hands and the area you’re treating are clean to prevent infections.
Understand your skin type and condition before using a derma roller. If you have fragile skin or an existing skin condition, consult a dermatologist to determine the appropriate needle length and frequency of use to avoid irritation or worsening any skin issues. If you notice excessive redness or discomfort during or after using the derma roller, stop using it immediately. You might be doing some harm to your scalp if you continue.
Apply gentle and little pressure while rolling the derma roller over your scalp. Excessive pressure can cause unnecessary discomfort, damage the skin, or bend the needles. It’s better to be cautious and gradually increase pressure with later sessions as your skin becomes used to the roller. Keep in mind that the extent at which you use the derma roller depends on the needle length. Shorter needles can be used frequently like several times a week, while longer needles may require more time between sessions to allow the skin to heal properly. Over time, the needles on a derma roller can become dull or bent. Replace your derma roller regularly, typically after 10-15 uses, to ensure safety.
When using a derma roller, consider applying products, such as serums or oils immediately after rolling. The small punctured holes created by the needles will enhance absorption, making the products more effective. However, ensure that the products you use are safe and suitable for post-derma roller application. After using a derma roller, your skin is more sensitive to the sun. Try to stay away from the sun or protect your scalp if you have to go out.
Consult a Professional
The idea of the rollers sounds good but it is restricted. Avoid using the derma roller on sensitive areas of the skin, such as the eyelids, lips, and directly on active acne. These areas are delicate and can be easily irritated or injured. If you are not sure about how to use a derma roller or have specific concerns about your hair, consult a dermatologist or skincare professional for guidance.
Will Derma Rollers Work Quickly for Hair Growth?
Derma rollers are not a quick-fix solution for growth. Hair growth is a complex process that is influenced by various factors, including genetics, hormones, diet, lifestyle, and more. Derma rollers can help by stimulating blood circulation, activating stem cells, enhancing absorption of topical products. However, achieving visible and significant hair growth through derma rollers takes time and consistency.
