Nanogen Titanium Microneedle Scalp Roller
Nanogen Titanium Microneedle Scalp Roller
Growth Treatment Enhancer
Nanogen’s Scalproller is the first specially designed roller to help treat thinning hair.
With unique titanium needles to precisely penetrate the skin with minimal irritation. Scalproller pre-treatment dramatically improves the effects of any topical treatment.
Titanium Microneedle Scalp Roller
- Safe for men & women
- Dramatically increases absorption of growth treatments
- Heals donor scars
- Encourages scalp repair & hair growth mechanisms
The genuine Scalproller by Nanogen has 3 innovative modes of action to enhance any hair treatment regimen:
1. Increases Minoxidil Absorption
Scalproller pre-treatment has been shown to increase absorption of topical treatments such as Minoxidil by 5 times or more.
With Scalproller pre-treatment, lower 2% concentrations of Minoxidil solution may give concentrations in the scalp higher than when using 5% solutions on untreated skin. Similarly, 5% solutions could produce higher concentrations in the scalp than 12.5% solutions or suspensions used on untreated skin.
Frontal scalp areas are notoriously difficult to treat topically, most probably due to lack of absorption. Therefore Minoxidil is only really effective in treating vertex hair loss. Using Nanogen’s Scalproller can dramatically increase absorption of Minoxidil in these regions, opening up new potential areas for topical treatments to act on.
2. Heals Donor Scars
Hair transplant surgery commonly leaves scars in the donor region; Nanogen’s Scalproller can fade and reduce the appearance of these scars by breaking up scar tissue structures and formations. Plus there is evidence in animal models to show that new hair may grow to conceal the donor area after Scalproller treatment.
3. Encourages New Hair Growth
The latest research by Intercytex, performed with Dr. Bessam Farjo as principal investigator, has shown that patients receiving superficial injections grow new hair, which may solely be a result of the controlled skin wounding itself.
This surprising result is correlated by the pioneering work published by Dr. George Cotsarelis of Pennsylvania University, who found that stimulation of the Wnt protein by wounding leads to hair regeneration. Wounding by microneedles would potentially start this Wnt protein mediated growth stimulation, and prevent synthesis of TGF-β2, a protein known to induce hair loss.
Most dermatological rollers are designed for use on facial skin and are made from stainless steel, which can blunt easily with daily use on the tougher scalp skin.
Nanogen’s Scalproller microneedles are engineered in Sweden from pure Titanium giving a finer and much more durable edge, eliminating excess irritation caused by ordinary steel needles.
Furthermore each individual Scalproller microneedle is Gold plated to maintain sterility.
Optimum Microneedle Length
Studies indicate Scalproller needles need to be a minimum of 0.5mm or longer for best results when used on thick hair. The genuine Scalproller by Nanogen uses either 0.275 or 0.5mm needles in the Hair Loss version, since longer needles can cause pain if not used by experts accompanied by topical anaesthetic creams.
For use on thicker hair choose the 0.5mm version, and for areas with less hair choose the 0.275mm Hair Loss version, for optimum results without appreciable pain or injury.
The Scalproller is available in several needle lengths. The 0.5mm for Hair Loss use is already in stock, 0.275mm Hair Loss use and 1 & 2mm clinical use versions will be in stock shortly.
Nanogen’s Scalproller is the specially designed microneedle roller to produce optimum results without appreciable pain or injury.
At first, Scalproller users are advised to only roll the Scalproller in one direction, following the direction of hair growth. This ensures the amount of penetration is controlled and any tangling of the roller in longer hair is avoided.
However, with experience rolling in multiple directions may be preferred by the individual user.
How To Use Nanogen’s Scalproller
For best results cleanse the scalp, removing oil, dirt, sebum & flakes using Onescalp.
Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Sterilise the Scalproller with the sterilising solution, and allow the
solution to evaporate until dry
At first, use a constant, gentle rolling motion in one direction only,
from the crown toward the front or the sides. Rolling in one direction produces a controlled amount of penetration and avoids tangling the roller in longer hair. With experience, individual users may prefer to roll in multiple directions.
Apply a topical solution like Nanogaine or Minoxidil as per the product instructions, then gently massage into the scalp. Use the roller at night as many topical solutions require time to absorb fully.
Ensure the roller is cleansed thoroughly after each use, run under hot water and allow to dry before returning it to the case. Always allow the roller to cool before using.
Suitable for Men & Women
Nanogen’s Scalproller is ideal for men and women as it is designed especially for hair loss, and to improve the penetration of topical hair growth products . It works perfectly with both Minoxidil (Rogaine®) and Nanogaine, both of which are also suitable for treating male and female hair loss.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Scalproller?
Nanogen’s Scalproller is similar to the more common Skin or Derma Roller, a treatment that used to only be available through Trichologists or Dermatologists now made available to use at Hair Loss.
It is a simple roller with 0.5mm titanium microneedles which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding.
This accurate and non-intrusive penetration allows much higher absorption of scalp treatments like Minoxidil, Nanogaine, and Nanoguard B. It may also stimulate scalp healing and hair growth by itself as it can stimulate the scalp’s healing response.
How will Nanogen’s Scalproller Work?
As you roll the roller over your scalp, it penetrates the upper layers of skin. By opening the skin in this way you dramatically increase the penetration of any topical growth product, increasing its efficacy.
These perforations also stimulate the scalp’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy scalp.
Can I use the Scalproller more than once a day?
No, the Scalproller is designed to be used daily, and is far more intensive than any skin roller, but using more than once a day may cause more irritation than is aimed for, and even cause damage.
When using the Scalproller do I roll over each part of my scalp only once?
At first, use a single motion over each area of scalp, rolling gently forward from the crown. This produces a controlled amount of irritation and avoids tangling the roller in longer hair.
Do I use Nanogen’s Scalproller over my whole scalp, or just the thinning area?
As the main aim of the Scalproller is to help topical hair loss treatments penetrate, you should use the Scalproller everywhere that you will apply your topical treatment.
Using it elsewhere will certainly not do any harm.
Is this the same as other Skin or Derma Rollers?
No. Other skin rollers have different needle lengths, and are designed to be used for different purposes.
Some claim they will work on Hair Loss, but Nanogen’s Scalproller is the first specially designed for use on the scalp and for use every day.
No other skin roller is made from unique titanium needles, so only the Scalproller can be reused intensively for 3-6 months.
I use more than one topical solution, which should I apply first?
The same as you did before you used the Scalproller, you should still follow the guidelines on your topical treatments for their application.
How long will the Scalproller last for?
Even when used daily, due to its unique durable titanium microneedles Nanogen’s scalproller can last up to 6 months.
Is Nanogen’s Scalproller Guaranteed to Work?
Like all Nanogen products, the Scalproller is covered by a 30 day returns policy, so whatever the reason you can simply return it for a refund in 30 days.
