Does derma roller work

Question : –

I’ve receding hairline around my temples and I’m just 21. Its genetic in my case. Can derma roller help me?


Hello, this is a most frequently asked question in my OPD. In my 30 years of practice, in recent time only many young boys are facing this problem , I won’t say only genetic predisposition plays role in it but its kind of synchronous outcome of many factors like hectic and stressful lifestyle, non-nutritious fast food consumption, disturbed cortisol levels due to many factors and of course hereditary factor is the most important factor which you are experiencing

Here is my video on male hair loss in all


Treating receding hairline is a quite tricky job to do due to many factors which have come up recently, like the low efficacy of minoxidil on receding hairline due to some still unknown factors ( P.S.- we are conducting clinical research on it ), in some patients, medical line of treatment gets a complete resistance and many more factors

Now the exact answer to your question

YES, derma roller does work in receding hairline and other types of hair loss excluding telogen and anagen effluvium. I will tell basic mechanism of action behind derma roller. as you know it punctures your scalp with the microporing mechanism which in turns increases the vascular ( i.e. blood flow) flow to the hair root. it also increases the flow of growth factors to the hair roots.

This is all theory now I will tell you my practical opinion. if you use the only dermaroller then it might not help you to get rid of your hair loss problem. so what should you do?

Here it is according to me, these are the treatment modalities you should go for

  1. PRP
  2. Mesotherapy
  3. Minoxidil
  4. Finasteride
  5. Dermaroller
  6. Multivitamins

But please remember this is not at all my prescription, I request you to visit a good dermatologist nearby you and get examined properly for the root cause of your hair loss and get a proper prescription from him or her.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
