....OK..on another note...
...has ANYONE ever applied MINOX to the donor area after a HT?? Talk about the ultimate in wounding --- especially with FUE...
...could this work?? squeeg'??
but just between you and me that's kind of a sissy roll
I really get in there.
Even my gf got in there and we were fighting earlier in the day so she was really being rough and that was still a limited bleed.

http://stopaga.com/topic/1945-2y2r-e...s-on-wounding/ detailed documentation of my regrowth
After having read all the positive feedback, I have decided to participate in the rollfest. I wonder though, how long after a hair transplant could you roll over the recipient area without causing any damage? (This in case I accidentally roll over this area when focussing on the area directly behind it)
By the way, did any of you guys read this email answered by one of the scientists responsible for the study? It was posted by an administrator from some Scandinavian forum.
Your name was cited in a recent Journal about a pilot study on Microneedling and the positive effects on Androgenic Alopecia.
Are you the correct person to contact regarding this study?
Please could you kindly contact me and comment whether you'd be willing to assist with some queries I have?
Many thanks for your assistance in this regard

Dear Mr. XXXXXXX
I am the right person, who is responsible for the study.
We routinely perform microneedling for patients with androgenetic alopecia including women, getting good results.
Dear Dr YYYYYY
Thank you very much for getting back to me and confirming you are indeed the correct person.
I have a few queries on the treatment which maybe you can shed some light on:
1. Do the results continue improving under the microneedling / Minoxidle regime or is there a limit to the regrowth patients can expect?
2. Have you treated any patients with this regime whilst they were on Finasteride? How do their results compare?
3. What level of pain and bleeding should patients expect and could there be potential damage to the hair follicles if the treatment is too vigorous?
4. Do you treat with Minoxidle immediately after the treatment or follow the studies method of rest for 24 hours? If so, why?
5 Do you use different length needles for different patients or is there a standard length?
Thank you very much for your time clarifying these queries. I look forward to hearing back from you.

1. There was further mild improvement after completion of treatment
2. Now I treat all my patients with finasteride + minoxidil+microneedling + platelet rich plasma. Results are v.good.
3. very mild pain, one or 2 bleeding spots occasionally.
4. We ask our patients not to apply minoxidil on the day of procedure
5. Standard length is 1.5mm for all patients.
The trouble on these hair loss forums is that people are emotionally involved, and often just want to `believe' that a particular thing offers `hope'. This is why it is often easy for real science to be overlooked in MPB, but in the long term it is only `real' science that will provide the answers! -SFoote
@squeegee... What do you think of this?
Since the dermaroller causes wounding and activates stem cells, we will need some ingredients to build these follicles, hair is made up of 91% amino acids! I found this supplement which is the only one I found containing all 22 amino acids and all fatty acids omega 3, 6, 9 http://www.montanaemuranch.com/vital...-10-oz-powder/
ive been doing a lot of research and I read a few times that you need all 22 amino acids to create cells or something, do you know anything about that as well?
