A derma roller can be safely used for the facial hair area and it should result in thicker growth of beard through stimulation of blood circulation.
Some brands have recently started selling similar products for men but in an effort to sound more masculine, they have decided to rename them to Beard Rollers.
The mechanism of action is simple:
The small needles of the beard roller puncture the skin.
The body recognizes this damage and begins the healing process.
Circulation improves, nutrient & hormone-rich blood rushes to the beard area.
Since collagen and keratin are both necessary components of the actual facial hair that stems from the follicles, and the androgenic hormones (testosterone and DHT) fuel the growth.
It would make logical sense that this could result in an increased rate of natural beard growth; making your mane thicker over time.
Micro-needling combined with few other beard growth hacks, belongs to the top methods of fixing a patchy beard.
Dermarolling for beard growth is not difficult at all. You just take the roller and go through your facial hair skin a few times per week.
You should always let your skin rest and repair itself before you puncture it again with the Derma Roller, and ideally, you should be micro needling every three days for best results.
Of course, the size of the needles is a big factor in how often you can use the Derma Roller. If it’s a 0.3mm needle kind, you can Derma Roll daily.
Frequently Asked Questions
