dermarolling / microneedling post hair transplant

Recommended Posts

Couldn't find any conclusive answers on when is it safe to dermaroll my scalp post hair. I had a transplant November 2019 and I dont want to risk damaging anything.

I personally wouldn't want to try it until at least 6 months, maybe even 8 months, because I wouldn't want to risk damaging any grafts that are trying to reconnect with blood vessels and start growing. I don't know if it would matter, but that's my feeling on it.

I do not think micro-needling would penetrate the skin deep enough to cause harm to the follicles. We often perform PRP or Exosome treatments post operatively and use micro needling  during that procedure and have no problems. You are over two months post-op . Should be good to go.

Would it matter if i use a .5mm or 1.5mm roller? I'm almost 4 months post transplant.

an hair follicle is 3-5mm long.
So, 1,5mm should not damage the follicles.

Great answer from @Dr. Glenn Charles. 👍🏻

Also, I have not seen any derma roller or stamps or pens that are more than 2.5mm so you likely won’t find 5mm but that’s not the proper depth, 1-1.5mm is more the typical depth used.
