Ho-ly duck f*** man.
I do 2 mm and I get small blood dots and redness after 3-4 passes, but that's it. I don't know how that much blood at HALF that length is possible.
And as @Pephair said, the first needling thread was locked because of pics like this.
What does your procedure look like? You...
Indeed. While this is good to hear, it sounds like it is indeed a couple or years or more away from materializing, if it does materialize at all. Let's hope it does, along with RCH-01... some could have a chance at giving the ultimate cockslap to this hair loss bullshit with those two!
It's already considered wounding at that depth. However, if you want to see if 2 mm provides results then go right ahead.
We're still discovering this whole thing so, after a certain point, whether more depth means better results it's still unknown. Supposedly, Follica is bringing a device with...
The general consensus is that wounding is ONLY achieved at depths between 1.5 and 2 mm (or even 2.5 mm). We reached this conclusion because this is how the studies do it.
Try 1 mm and see how you fare. Then slowly increase the depth as you get comfortable.
You can always use some...
I'm wondering about that as well. There were 2 trials if I recall correctly; I guess one for women and the other for men. I'm not entirely sure though.
Either way, I'm glad this is coming out. Hope it goes beyond the papers and proves to be a good alternative to f*****g Stone Age Minoxidil.
That's pretty interesting then. If you were going for mild erythema for 2.5 years and now you get better results by going harder then that could be solid proof of something.
I use a pen, so that also wounds pretty effectively. Also, I don't think my temples are coming back with this (been gone...
Have you, or any of the hard rollers, tried rolling till mild erythema with absolutely no results prior to this? If so, you might have solid evidence for it. And congrats on your results! What Norwood, if I may ask?
I can tell you; I use 2 mm and I lift and press down for that same reason. Redness stays for a day too.
As sports said, we all have different scalps. Some guys are already fucked up with 1.5 mm. Others such as myself don't get that red when pressing hard with 2 mm. I do have a lot...
By the way, we don't know how true this whole "draw blood for the follicle god if you want results" thing is, but... Friendly reminder yet again! Chinese study did 4 passes max on each patient. No mention of blood; only reddish skin.
Obviously we're still scratching the surface with...
Ah, yes. That Helga person who chimed in to say something like: "You really believe in this microneedling bullshit? No wonder people fall for right-wing idiots like Trump". Good times.
But yeah, whole lotta assholes 'round here.
