Microneedling induces wound healing cascade with minimal damage to the epidermis, which, allows enhanced absorption of topical medicines across the thick stratum corneum. Microneedling as novel, simple, well-tolerated and cost-effective treatment is increasingly popular among the dermatologists. The procedure also allows cosmetic and therapeutic benefits for the topical delivery of medications in the treatment of atrophic scars, alopecia, actinic keratoses, photoaging, and disorders of pigmentation such as melasma. Hence, it can be used to treat localized diseases of inflammation, dyschromia, and photodamage by using as adjunctive therapy for enhanced drug delivery.
While varying dermarollers with different needle length are freely available in market and online, a dermatologist’s expertise is needed:
- To understand whether the condition would benefit from dermaroller or some other procedure is required.
- The technique is tough to perform on your own face and scalp so need expert handling as inefficient use can potentially lead to scarring or inadequate coverage of the area to be treated.
- Self-application of pressure is always inhibited due to pain sensation experienced while dermarolling.
At Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions, we have hundreds of treated patients who have benefited immensely from Dermaroller treatment for hair loss and scars. The experienced staff takes the utmost care to deliver treatment following scientific methodology, safely and hygienically.
