Microneedle Therapy - Scalp Roller
What is Microneedle Therapy?
Microneedle Therapy is a recently presented therapeutic devise used for scalp treatment which increases topical treatment penetration and may independently promote new hair growth.
The cylindrical barrel with precision engineered stainless steel microneedles, are similar to the non invasive needles used in acupuncture. The microneedles penetrate the top layers of the scalp without causing damage. This non-intrusive penetration allows a much higher absorption of topical scalp treatment products commonly used to treat hair loss and re-grow hair. Microneedle Therapy pre-treatment has been shown to increase absorption of topical treatment by 5 times or more. Recent research also reports the Microneedle Therapy may also stimulate scalp healing and hair growth by itself as it can stimulate the scalp’s healing response.
The Microneedles penetrate the epidermis of the skin, which is the upper layer, where they encourage the skin’s own repair and hair growth mechanisms and also increase the effective penetration and absorption of topical hair loss treatment products.
How does Microneedle Therapy work?
Research and data shows stimulation of hair growth in response to Microneedle Therapy. Studies have shown that Microneedles of 0.75mm depth penetrate the skin enough to enable the absorption of topical applications. Microneedle Therapy enhances any topical scalp treatment regime and stimulates natural repair pathways to support skin and scalp healing and maintain healthy hair growth.
Scalp skin is comprised of several layers. The outside layer is called the stratum corneum, and is made from dead skin cells with a high concentration of oils and keratin protein. This scalp skin layer protects the outside of the body, and is very effective at preventing microbes and chemicals from passing through, entering the body.
Applying topical treatments is only useful if the active ingredients can penetrate through this layer. Actives that are small molecules can penetrate around the hair shaft and sebaceous glands, and some of the active will go through the stratum corneum. However a significant amount of actives will be blocked, especially larger molecules. This often means that only a fraction of the total active in the product reaches the target area and has an effect.
Using the Scalp roller creates thousands of quickly healing channels through the stratum corneum, bypassing the major barrier to treatment absorption.
The stratum corneum on the scalp is not very thick, and can be penetrated by 0.75mm microneedle. These channels allow more than 5 times more actives to penetrate the scalp.
Similar techniques are used to treat acne scars and wrinkles, and to increase the penetration of skin care products, however, the microneedle length is different for skin Microneedle Therapy.
Absolique Microneedle - Scalp Roller was specifically designed to assist hair loss treatment, by creating tiny microscopic channels on the surface of the scalp which significantly improve the penetration of therapeutic active ingredients to the target site, the hair bulb. Microneedle Therapy is suitable for both male and female hair loss and can be used as a standalone therapy or for best results should be employed in combination with Minoxidil or other topical hair growth products as prescribed by your Trichologist. Apply topical hair loss products as per product instructions.
Topical application products may include but are not limited to:
- Methode Regenerant
- Ergines Regenerant
- Ergines Actives

How to use your Microneedle?
Use your Microneedle BEFORE any scalp treatment product is applied for increased absorption, penetration and results.
For maximum results, combine Absolique Microneedle Therapy with Absolique Scalp regime as follows:
- Prepare your scalp with Scalp Brush Therapy
- Cleanse your scalp with Absolique Scalp Cleanser
- Treat your scalp with Absolique Scalp Tonique (scalp freeze),
- Towel dry hair and scalp
- Apply Absolique Microneedle
- Apply scalp treatment products
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.
At first, the Scalp roller is designed to be used no more than once daily, using more than once daily may be possible after time, depending on the individual. If used more than once a day initially the Scalproller may cause more irritation than is aimed for. Depending on your scalp treatment program, you may only need to use the Scalp Roller on the day’s you wash your scalp and hair prior to applying your scalp treatments.
When using the Scalp roller at first, use a single motion once over each area of scalp in the treatment area, rolling gently forward from the crown or back from forehead, hairline and sides. This produces a controlled amount of irritation and avoids tangling the roller in longer hair. After time, individual users should roll in multiple directions. Only a medium pressure should initially be applied. Scientific data is based on rolling 10-15 times in the same area in all directions.
In this case around 240 microinfiltration- pores per square centimeter are set. The pores close within minutes, locking in topical treatment nutrients and supporting skin renewal.
When used as directed, the Scalp roller will only cause small or no marks, any marks will fade in under a minute. Scalp roller treatment may cause a flush to your scalp that will fade in a few hours, but no long-lasting redness. The Scalp rollers made available for home use have sharp, durable stainless steel needles that do not cause appreciable pain or bleeding when used as directed.
If pain or bleeding is experienced, reduce the pressure when applying your Microneedle, or check the age of your Scalp Roller, it may need replacing. There will be no visible signs of the needle sharpness deteriorating, but if you notice any increase in pain or inflammation while using the Scalp Roller, it is a sign the needles are becoming less sharp, and you will need to replace it. After 180 uses, you should replace your scalp roller.
As the main aim of the Scalp roller is to help topical hair loss treatments penetrate, you should use the Scalp roller everywhere that you will apply your topical treatment. However using it elsewhere will certainly not do any harm. Follow the guidelines on your topical treatment products for their application. If you use more than 1 topical treatment, you should apply them the same as you did before you used the scalp roller. Additionally, Microneedle Therapy can be used to assist healing of donor scars after hair transplantation surgery.
To clean the Scalp Roller, use a sanitizing solution spray and allow drying for a few seconds before use. Ensure the roller is cleansed thoroughly after each use, run under hot water and allow drying before sterilizing and returning it to the case.
