To Roll or not to Roll – that is the questionIf you are experiencing baldness, thinning hair or hair loss, the derma roller can help.
The derma roller causes micro-injury to the skin, which triggers a wound-healing response. That wound healing can stimulate the production of a protein that leads to hair generation, whilst inhibiting a protein that causes hair loss
What the Experts say…Research has shown that the derma roller is effective in helping to repair hair loss
A pilot research study published in July 2013 in the International Journal of Trichology compared the use of a derma roller plus minoxidil versus minoxidil only in promoting hair growth in 100 men.
Results showed that men who used the derma roller with minoxidil had significantly more hair growth than the men who used minoxidil on its own
However Minoxidil has a temporary effect on hair growth only. When you stop using it, it is likely that your hair will return to its original state.
The result of the pilot research study is correlated by the pioneering work published by Dr George Cotsarelis of Pennsylvania University, who found that stimulation of the Wnt protein by wounding leads to hair regeneration.
Wounding by microneedles/derma rollers would potentially start this Wnt protein mediated growth stimulation, and prevent synthesis of ‘TGF-?2’ a protein known to induce hair loss.
