Dermaroller for Hair Loss – Does It Work?

POSTED: 06 August 2013

Worried about hair loss? Whether you’re currently experiencing hair loss problems or you’re simply worried about hair loss problems coming about down the road, you’re likely looking into the options available to help treat this unwanted condition.
One such treatment method is the Dermaroller, which is starting to catch the eye of many.
But, is it the right treatment for you? Is it going to be a wise choice to help you maintain your full head of hair and keep looking your best? Let’s go over a few things to know and consider.


What The Dermaroller Is


The Dermaroller is essentially a plastic roller that’s about 3 cm wide and has rows of needles that are around 2-3 mm in length total.
When using this piece of hair loss equipment, you simply roll the roller over the skin, which gently punctures the outer layers. The result of this is that there will be very minor damage caused to the skin, which then will encourage the skin to begin regenerating itself and healing, which then increases the chances that more hair grows back in place of the old damaged hair follicles.
If this process is done often enough, hair re-growth can possibly be seen.
In addition to that, the puncturing and rolling action on the skin will also enhance your overall level of blood circulation as well and this can help to reduce the DHT levels in the scalp, which is what’s responsible for hair loss in the first place.


Does It Work


So now that you know the theory behind the dermaroller, does it actually produce the desired results that you’re after?
For the most part, the dermaroller has shown some significant benefits to those who have used it regularly for a period of time. However, keep in mind that this technique is not as intensive and researched as full hair replacement therapy is, so while you may see some improvement, it’s not a permanent or solid form of treatment option like hair transplants would be.


If you’re not someone who has the money or willingness to undergo that procedure however, using this may be worth some consideration. Just don’t expect miraculous results overnight – further research does still need to be done to establish the full validity of this as a treatment protocol.
