    I've just started to use a dermaroller and Dr Lee's 12.5% minoxidil on my temples, getting a bit worried after reading this.

    Oh, there was already an old thread about this. Since this is a relevant and legitimate concern, I'll bump it.

    Well this sucks, I have such good results after only 3 months of fake derma roller and Lipogaine (minox 5%).

    The micro wounds from dermarolling close between 20 minutes and an hour after wounding depending on depth and severity. If you wait 12-24hrs after dermarolling before your next minoxidil application you will have zero chance of the minox going systemic.

    The derma roller wounds might close after one hour, but if I dermaroll again after 12 hours, it hurts too much. I must mention, I dermaroll gently, I almost never bleed, but still deep enough to feel some pain. I will try dermarolling 2-3 times a week only, with no minoxidil right after.

    1,5 mm and it's not the original one. I paid only 9 euro on Amazon, but I guess is pretty effective. The needles are still very sharp after almost 4 months.
