Derma Roller - Scalp
Derma roller is an instrument that consists of a handle and a roller which is studded with very fine needles. The length of these needles varies from 0.5 mm to 2.5mm. The Derma roller is rolled across the affected area with a minimal pressure. The needles penetrate the skin creating tiny punctures of varying depths depending on the length of needles. The process is done till fine bleeding points are seen.
The physical damage done by puncturing the Epidermis and Dermis causes an inflammatory tissue reaction to repair the damage. The inflammatory reaction stimulates the Dermal Fibroblasts to activate follicles. Derma rollers on the scalp help stimulate reactivation of hair growth cycle resulting in better hair growth and facilitate hair fall reduction.
It is highly recommended to take repeat sessions in a gap of 20-30 days for best results.
- Protection from Sun is a must. Avoid stepping out as much as possible during the treatment period.
- Do not rub the treated area with a coarse towel. Instead just dab the area to dry it after washing.
- Swimming, steam and sauna may be done only after 7 days, post the treatment.
- Salon services must be avoided in the treated area for at least 15 days post Derma roller.
Mild redness is not of concern. If there is slight irritation you may wash the treated area with cold water without any soap and can apply REVITAL MANTRA Moisturizing Cream. If you experience severe redness lasting for over a day, itching or oozing, immediately report to the Centre and consult the Doctor.
