During the 1990s, the scientists found that the causing micro-wounds to your outer most layer of skin induce collagen production. Derma roller is a roller in a small size that is covered in micro needles. The length of microneedles varies from 0.5 to 3mm. Though originally used for healing the scars produced by acne, later it is also used in the hair growth treatment.  When the dermarollers cause micro-wounds on the surface of your skin, it aids in the production of collagen and the skin also repairs itself on its own. Our skin is made up of collagen – the fibrous connective tissues which are an important building material. Let’s see here about how the derma rollers are useful in hair growth.

How collagen plays a major role in hair growth

First of all, one must understand how collagen is important in hair growth. Collagen is the main component of connective tissue. Collagen, the most abundant protein in mammals and found in the range of 25% to 35% of your entire body. The molecule of collagen consists of amino acids and forms triple-helices. You will find most of it in the fibrous tissues like tendons, ligaments, and skin.

You have seen the importance of collagen in the human body that too in the growth of your hair. Collagen is present in smaller quantities in the hair shaft. It is also present around the hair follicle bulb. It thickens the hair root during anagen, hair growth stage, and also supports the growth of new hair. During the hair shedding stage, the follicle loses some of the collagen.

Mechanics of derma rollers in hair growth

The wound will send out blood after the procedure. Hence, it becomes essential for applying a solution as advised by your dermatologist.

You can also mix this oil with some other oils like castor oil to get better results.
