Micro needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), involves using a derma roller onto the skin or scalp. The micro needling derma roller has tiny needles that make little holes in the top layers of the skin. The procedure is painless. It allows moisturizers and serums to penetrate and absorb more deeply into the layers of skin.
When used on the scalp, a micro needling roller can help promote hair growth by allowing hair care products to penetrate more deeply into the skin. Moreover, it can stimulate collagen production in the scalp just like it does on the face. It also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair growth.
As a matter of fact a study has shown great results from patients with micro needling. Hundred cases of mild to moderate (III vertex or IV) androgenetic alopecia (AGA) were recruited into 2 groups. The first group was treated with Minoxidil and micro needling, the second with Minoxidil only. In the micro needling group, 41 (82%) patients reported more than 50% improvement versus only 2 (4.5%) patients in the Minoxidil group. Unsatisfied patients to conventional therapy for AGA got good response with the micro needling treatment.
As a result, the skin regenerates itself for a plumper, smoother and firmer skin. Moreover, using a micro needling roller can also help fade scars and stretch marks.
Micro needling may help conditions such as acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
The biggest benefit of at-home rolling is simple: The deeper a product can get into the skin, the more effective it can be. Many aestheticians swear by the efficacy of short needles.
In fact, Kerry Benjamin a Hollywood aesthetician, calls at-home micro needling one of the “most powerful and effective ways to stop early signs of aging. It is especially efficient in preventing new fine lines and wrinkles from occurring”.
