Beard roller: Is it true that it stimulates beard growth?

The beard roller is undoubtedly one of the trending methods aimed at achieving a thicker and denser beard. This innovative instrument promises beard growth in those areas where there is no facial hair, but, Is it true that this famous roller makes your beard grow?

En Hospital Capilar, experts in beard grafting in Madrid, Murcia and Pontevedra, we tell you how this instrument works and if it really benefits facial hair growth.

What does the beard roller consist of?

The beard roller is a device that incorporates microneedles in the movable head. It is made of stainless steel and simulates a kind of brush, it has an elongated handle that facilitates its application on the face.

This instrument is applied to the beard area by rolling it, and the needles contained in the head create channels in the dermis. This microneedling method is usually accompanied by creams aimed at beard care.

It is a technique that stimulates the fibroblast improving blood circulation and skin elasticity. But does it make new beard hair grow?

The beard roller makes the beard grow: Truth or myth?

The beard roller is beneficial for the condition of the skin since, as we mentioned before, it improves its elasticity. But, as indicated by our medical equipment, In no case does the beard roller cause hair to grow in those areas where it does not grow naturally. Therefore, in cases where there is no facial hair, the expected results will not be obtained. Although it is true that it could help in men with the presence of fine hair in the beard, in these cases it can improve the appearance of the beard that already exists naturally.

In short, the beard roller does not grow facial hair as we think. It improves the health of the skin in the area by stimulating blood circulation and promoting elasticity, but it will not cause hair to grow in areas where there is none.

How to recover the density of the beard?  

Currently the only way to get a thick beard and treat the bald beard It is through transplantation. Beard grafting offers permanent and natural results, since it is the patient's own hair that is implanted in the area to be treated.

It is an intervention that is increasingly in demand today. In Hospital Capilar, hair clinic in Madrid, Murcia and Pontevedra, we carry out the beard transplant with FUE technique as it leaves no visible scars. The procedure consists of several phases carried out by our expert medical team, since we must not forget that, although ambulatory, it is a surgery that requires qualified personnel.

beard design

The first thing that is carried out is the design of the beard. To do this, the doctor sets the limits respecting the patient's physiognomy, as well as their tastes and expectations of the results.

Furthermore, in the previous capillary analysis, the medical team determines how many follicular units need to be implanted.

Application of local anesthesia

Beard grafting does not require general anesthesia, only local anesthesia in the beard area and in the lower area of ​​the neck, where the follicular units will be extracted. This is usually the only part that can cause discomfort and for this reason, in Hospital Capilar We have pre-anesthesia with which we managed to considerably reduce the pain of the anesthesia itself.

Follicular unit extraction

Once the area is asleep, the team proceeds to extract the follicular units. This is done with a punch with micromotor, which allows the follicles to be extracted individually without damaging the area excessively. As they are extracted, they are placed in Petri dishes for better conservation.

Making the incisions in the recipient area

Once all the necessary follicular units have been extracted, the surgeon doctor makes the incisions in the beard using a sapphire scalpel. This supposes an exercise of precision on the part of the medical team that will determine the quality of the results. For this reason it is crucial to put yourself in the hands of experienced medical professionals.

Implantation of follicular units

The last phase with which the beard implant surgery is concluded is the implantation of the follicular units in the channels previously opened by the surgeon. Once finished, the patient can return home normally, beginning the beard graft postoperative.
