Is my hair thinning? This is the last question you added to your inner quarantine monologue. Others include, “Is this a wrinkle?” And “Does all this time on the screen damage my skin?” With all this, I’m not sure if I’m actually experiencing these problems or just having a lot more time in front of the mirror than before the pandemic.
Anyway, the recent Q hair is stressing me out (which doesn’t help with hair loss, by the way) because while Botox can help with wrinkles, serums and makeup can do some magic to the skin, hair loss or thinning. hair doesn’t have a quick fix … or does it? Just when I was going to start looking for a trichologist for a complete scalp analysis (the privilege of being a beauty editor), I was referred to the BeautyBio GloPro Scalp Microneedling Tool. While the brand has microneedle devices for your face, body and even lips, this is their first haircut.
Dermatologists approve of dermaroling in support of hair loss.
“Microidling is a great tool that can help stimulate growth factors, the formation of new blood vessels and stem cells located in the bulge of the hair,” says Dr. Cherry Frey, a dermatologist in Maryland. The idea is that scalp microneedles stimulate blood flow to “wake up” hair follicles and encourage them to grow, as well as create micro channels in the skin that allow hair growth serum to penetrate deeper.
“Many dermatologists, myself included, have recommended that microneedle devices be used with prescription and over-the-counter serums such as Rogaine,” says Dr. Frey.
You need to dermarollate daily and pair it with serum for best results.
The BeautyBio system includes a dermaroller with 0.3 mm needles (no, they don’t hurt or draw blood), which has a pillow bent towards it like a razor so that it bends with your scalp, along with “healthy scalp serum” . The serum is a combination of soothing, strengthening and hydrating ingredients for both the scalp and the hair itself and includes Turkish delight leaves, camellia leaves, zinc and rose extract to name a few. However, if you already have a favorite scalp serum or one prescribed by your hairdresser or doctor, you can also pair it with a microneedle tool.
You can use the AM and PM system for even faster results, but I knew that one night it was more realistic for me to be able to stick to it. So, every night I turned over the microneedle device, where I felt my hair thinning – the front of my part, as well as my temples, and then I followed with a few drops of serum. Although the serum does not leave my strands greasy, it takes a while to dry, which is why I chose to apply it at night.
Dermarolling takes about six months to see full results, but you can see results earlier.
At first I was skeptical to check my progress, because as I write this, it’s only been four weeks since I started the two-tier system. But, works!! I just compared pictures before and after (see above) and my hair is definitely fuller on my temples and the little baby hair along my hairline grows.
The brand’s founder, Jamie O’Banion, says you won’t know the full scope of your results in about six months, but that their clinical trials show results in 30 days. “Each hair on our head is at a unique point in the hair growth cycle. Some hairs are just beginning to bloom in the anagen phase, while others are on their way to the catagen or telogen phase,” explains Jamie.
You need to keep using the dermaroller to keep up with the results.
Yes, you must continue to use the tool and serum to continue to benefit from hair growth. However, Jamie says that once you get to the point where you are happy, you can reduce it by using it only up to two to three times a week.
