How does the dermaroller help in hair loss?
The scalp is a thick tissue, and most of the hair stimulating molecules need to be delivered to the hair follicles base which is about 0.5 mm deep.

The treatment also increases the blood circulation of the scalp, this brings more nutrition to the hair roots.
5. Stemcell Therapy
What is Stem Cell?
Stem cells are progeny cells which later on differentiate and mature into different tissue cell lines (such as epidermal cells, hair follicle cells ).in hair these stem cells are present in the hair bulge area which can get stimulated to produce new hair follicles.
In cases of hair loss or androgenetic alopecia these stem cells are unable to produce thicker terminal hair or are lost resulting in hair loss.

These cells help in growing new hair follicle. The hair follicles are enriched with stem cells which has growth factor .this is introduced on the scalp with derma rollers and derma pen which helps in orienting and developing the follicle togrow hair.
While aging the follicles tends to shrink and stop responding to the chemical signals given to it this hinders the process of hair growth. The follicles of stem cells send signals to shrunken follicles which in turn help in regenerating and growing healthy hair.
