Unlocking the Potential of Hair Growth: The Benefits of Using a Dermaroller

The Benefits of Using a Dermaroller with Personalised Hair Growth Serum and Low Laser Red Light Therapy

Hair loss can be a distressing experience, impacting self-esteem and overall well-being. With advancements in trichology, numerous treatments have emerged, and one promising approach combines the use of a Dermaroller, personalised hair growth serum, and low laser red light therapy. This synergistic trio not only stimulates hair growth but also enhances the absorption of the serum, maximising its effectiveness. In this blog, we delve into the benefits of this treatment and provide a comprehensive guide on its application, emphasising the importance of hygiene and maintenance.

Benefits of Using a Dermaroller for Hair Loss

A Dermaroller is a handheld device equipped with hundreds of tiny needles. When rolled over the scalp, these needles create micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing response. This process, known as micro-needling, stimulates the production of collagen and increases blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting hair growth.

1. Enhanced Serum Absorption:

The micro-channels created by the Dermaroller allow for deeper penetration of topical treatments. Applying a personalised hair growth serum after Dermarolling significantly improves its absorption, ensuring that the active ingredients reach the hair follicles more effectively.

2. Stimulation of Hair Follicles:

Micro-needling directly stimulates dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the anagen (growth) phase. This can lead to increased hair density and thickness over time.

3. Improved Scalp Health:

Regular use of a Dermaroller can enhance scalp health by promoting cell turnover and reducing scalp inflammation. A healthier scalp environment is crucial for optimal hair growth.

Enhancing Results with Low Laser Red Light Therapy

Low laser red light therapy, often delivered via a specialised cap, involves the use of low-level lasers to stimulate hair follicles. Using this therapy daily for 20 minutes can significantly boost hair growth results. The red light penetrates the scalp, promoting blood circulation and encouraging hair follicles to produce thicker, healthier hair.

How to Use a Dermaroller with Your Personalised Hair Growth Serum

To achieve the best results, follow this step-by-step guide:

1. Preparation:

  • Ensure your scalp is clean and free from any product build-up.

  • Disinfect the Dermaroller with isopropyl alcohol to eliminate any potential bacteria.

2. Dermarolling:

  • Gently roll the Dermaroller over your scalp, covering each area in four directions: vertically, horizontally, and diagonally in both directions.

  • Focus on areas with noticeable thinning or hair loss.

  • Avoid pressing too hard to prevent injury; a gentle yet firm pressure is sufficient.

3. Timing:

  • Allow a gap of one hour after Dermarolling before applying your personalised hair growth serum. This interval ensures that the micro-channels remain open, optimising serum absorption without causing irritation.

4. Serum Application:

  • Apply the serum to your scalp, concentrating on areas where Dermarolling was performed.

  • Massage the serum gently to enhance penetration and stimulate blood flow.

5. Post-Treatment Care:

  • Avoid washing your hair for at least 24 hours to allow the serum to be fully absorbed.

  • Protect your scalp from excessive sun exposure and refrain from using harsh hair products immediately after the treatment.

6. Low Laser Red Light Therapy:

  • Use the red light therapy cap daily for 20 minutes to further stimulate hair growth and enhance the effectiveness of the combined treatment.

By conducting a thorough assessment of your hair loss pattern, scalp condition, and overall health, I can formulate a serum with the right combination of active ingredients to target your specific concerns.

Moreover, I can provide guidance on selecting the appropriate Dermaroller for your scalp. The choice of needle length and density is crucial for ensuring effective treatment while minimising discomfort and potential side effects. By choosing a Dermaroller that suits your scalp condition, we can enhance the efficacy of the treatment and achieve better results.

Importance of Hygiene and Dermaroller Maintenance

Maintaining proper hygiene is crucial when using a Dermaroller to prevent infections and ensure effective treatment.

1. Cleaning the Dermaroller:

  • After each use, rinse the Dermaroller with warm water to remove any debris.

  • Soak it in a disinfectant solution, such as isopropyl alcohol, for at least 10 minutes.

  • Allow it to air dry on a clean surface before storing it in its protective case.

2. Replacing the Dermaroller:

  • The needles on a Dermaroller can become blunt after repeated use, diminishing its effectiveness and increasing the risk of scalp injury.

  • It is recommended to replace the Dermaroller after 10-12 uses to ensure optimal performance and safety.

Top Five Reasons to Use a Multilayered Treatment Approach

1. Maximised Absorption: Dermarolling opens micro-channels in the scalp, allowing the personalised serum to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

2. Enhanced Hair Follicle Stimulation: Combining micro-needling with red light therapy significantly boosts hair follicle stimulation, encouraging faster and denser hair growth.

3. Improved Scalp Health: The treatment regimen improves overall scalp health by increasing cell turnover and reducing inflammation, creating an optimal environment for hair growth.

4. Personalised Treatment: A serum tailored to your specific needs ensures that the active ingredients target your unique hair loss concerns, maximising results.

5. Comprehensive Care: This holistic approach addresses multiple aspects of hair loss, from follicle stimulation and enhanced serum absorption to overall scalp health, ensuring a thorough and effective treatment.


Integrating a Dermaroller, personalised hair growth serum, and low laser red light therapy into your hair care routine can significantly enhance hair growth and improve scalp health. The combined approach maximises serum absorption, stimulates hair follicles, and creates an optimal environment for hair growth. However, it is vital to adhere to proper usage guidelines, maintain hygiene, and replace the Dermaroller as needed to achieve the best results. With consistent use and care, this multifaceted treatment can help you regain thicker, healthier hair and boost your confidence.
