Every day we lose 50-100 hair strands and these are replaced by new hair. However, when the hair fall become severe, there is a risk of baldness. Hence, it is advisable to find the root cause and get it treated at earliest. The commonest causes of hair fall are stress, scalp infections, thyroid issues, ovarian cysts, and iron deficiency. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.

The derma roller can also promote new hair growth without the use of minoxidil. For this method a derma roller is used to increase blood flow to the hair follicles and activate the skin's natural regeneration process. The derma roller causes micro-injury to the skin, which triggers a wound-healing response. Apply onion juice after that best needle size dermaroller 0.5 mm time to apply 0.5 mm needle size derma roller weekly 1.0 mm dermaroller monthly.

Hello. The scars and the pigmentation on the face are treatable. It's better to get it examined first so that we can identify the type of skin, scars and if they are hyper pigmented, atrophic or ice pick scars. The treatment are of various kind like ranging from simple scrubs and mild peels for the face to the major interventions such as laser therapy, dermaroller, subcision or peeling. These depend on the type of the scars and which kind you opt for. You can consult me online or text me with pictures for further details.

Hello, Dermaroller helps in areas where there is reduced hair density, not areas which are completely bald. You can try dermaroller and minoxidil for 6-8 sessions. The results are moderate.

Hello, Dermaroller can cause increased blood flow and provide growth factors for miniaturized hairs. It can work in areas of low hair density not in areas where its completely bald. You need to use 0.5 or 1 mm dermaroller for scalp.

Hello Dr. I have ice pick scars and boxcar scars on my face like nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead and my skin is very sensitive, I am afraid of using creams and laser treatments. So instead of taking laser, fractional/fraxel laser, fractional co2, TCA chemical peeling, IPL treatment can I go for microneedling/dermapen or can I use dermaroller for ice pick scars and boxcar scars? Will needling and dermaroller helps in preventing scars? Will scars do completely disappear and do they produce new collagen and improve skin texture? And if I go with needling/derma roller what kind of cream do I need to apply after I use roller or needling? Will they have any side effects? If you advice me to go with needling/derma roller, suggest me best dermaroller? And please help me and suggest the best treatment process. Thank you.

Hello, There are various treatments for acne scars which include creams, chemical peels, microdermaabrasion, microneedling, radiofrequency, surgery, fat fill, laser etc. TCA peels do help with ice pick scars, CO2 laser though is a good option it cannot be used in all skin type due to risk of hyperpigmentation. The redness following the laser may last upto 3 months and usually subside. Microneedling Radiofrequency therapy is a good option for collagen induction. Only microneedling gives moderate results and derma pen is better option than dermaroller. There are some skin repair creams with growth factors which help in collagen production after microneedling. What you need to understand is no therapy is perfect a combination of treatment give satisfactory results. Tretinoin creams in long term are also good option to improve the scars but needs to be stopped prior to any procedure. A photograph would help assess you better. Consult a dermatologist.
