A scalp roller is an essential part of any hair growth regime. It utilises titanium micro-needles to enhance growth treatment penetration for optimised hair growth.
A scalp roller has 3 innovative modes of action to enhance any hair treatment regimen:
1. Increases Absorption of Topical Products
Scalp roller pre-treatment has been shown to increase absorption of topical treatments such by 5 times or more.
With a Scalp roller pre-treatment, lower 2% concentrations of hair loss solutions may give concentrations in the scalp higher than when using 5% solutions on untreated skin. Similarly, 5% solutions could produce higher concentrations in the scalp than 12.5% solutions or suspensions used on untreated skin.
Frontal scalp areas are notoriously difficult to treat topically, most probably due to lack of absorption. As a result topical hair loss treatments are only really effective in treating vertex hair loss. Using a scalp roller can dramatically increase absorption in these regions, opening up new potential areas for topical treatments to act on.
2. Heals Donor Scars
Hair transplant surgery commonly leaves scars in the donor region; A scalp roller can fade and reduce the appearance of these scars by breaking up scar tissue structures and formations. Plus there is evidence in animal models to show that new hair may grow to conceal the donor area after scalp roller treatment.
3. Encourages New Hair Growth
A scalp roller treatment increases treatment efficacy and may independently promote new hair growth.
Most dermatological rollers are designed for use on facial skin and are made from stainless steel, which can blunt easily with daily use on the tougher scalp skin.
At first, a scalp roller users are advised to only roll the in one direction, following the direction of hair growth. This ensures the amount of penetration is controlled and any tangling of the roller in longer hair is avoided. However, with experience rolling in multiple directions may be preferred by the individual user.
How To Use The Scalp Roller
For best results cleanse the scalp, removing oil, dirt, sebum & flakes.
Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
At first, use a constant, gentle rolling motion in one direction only, from the crown toward the front or the sides. Rolling in one direction produces a controlled amount of penetration and avoids tangling the roller in longer hair. With experience, individual users may prefer to roll in multiple directions.
Apply your topical solution as per the product instructions, then gently massage into the scalp. Use the roller at night as many topical solutions require time to absorb fully.
Ensure the roller is cleansed thoroughly after each use, run under hot water and allow to dry before returning it to the case. Always allow the roller to cool before using.
