How does a dermaroller work?
The tiny needles puncture the skin and create a controlled skin damage in the form of micro-channels. The puncture triggers the body’s healing process, which in turn activates growth factors and increases blood circulation.
The affected surface also begins to produce more collagen – a natural fibrous protein that provides structure, firmness and resistance to abrasion.
Research has found that skin and hair treated continuously can lead to a 400% increase in collagen production.
Treatment with skin rollers also improves the absorption of preparations such as Minoxidil(Rogaine and Recrea).
A skin roller is often used as a delivery system to maximise the effect of substances applied to the skin or scalp during treatment.
