I'm surprised to see so much informations around microneedling I searched for weeks before finding this community and this thread in particular so I thank everyone for their contributions... I have a question tho, in the first post the guy says to move the device in horizontal and vertical direction but when i bought the pen I thought moving it while keeping it on the skin could cause unwanted damage to the tissue (like a bruise and a post here seems to show exactly that) so what I've been doing these weeks is tapping the pen on the head instead of moving it, is it wrong? Should I get a derminator or can I do it like this? I don't think I can send it back even if I bought it on amazon and use just one head.
I have my face microneedled by a professional, and she always moves the device without lifting it. I also microneedle my scalp that way.

Like it actually matter lol. This follica is huge flop in my opnion. There whole startegy is to stimulate growth without keeping the folicels healthy, the problem is , that no matter how much hair you get its the same as minoxidil hair it would go away in 2 years mark

Not true.

A number of guys have created long-lasting new hairs from wounding/needling efforts. I mean lasting for a decade or more.

It's an occasional thing, just a few scattered hair shafts. Nothing remotely close to "cosmetically useful". But it does happen. Follica's original idea is very solid. Too bad they have failed to figure it out.

In a video I remember cotsarelis saying that follicle neo genesis will not take place in slick bald areas but in areas with vellus hair

Dermatologists have observed NEW follicles being created from dermabrasion, where there wasn't hair beforehand.

Derms doing dermabrasion. That means people who weren't even looking for new hairs, and saw them happening. These observations go back for decades.


The wounding->regrowth concept works, period.

No, Follica has not been able to figure it out & make good use of it.
No, I don't know if Follica ever will.
No, Cotsarelis cannot be taken without grains of salt.

But the wounding->regrowth concept still works. Period.

Did anyone ever discuss the needle diameter?

Maybe I'm wrong but we shouldn't be able to achieve 1600 wounds per cm² with existing devices.
A cm² offers the space of 100mm - If we take the Derminator2 which got a needle diameter of .15mm we can reach max. ~666 single wounds. So the needle diameter of follica's device would be max. around .06mm if the holes should be separately.

Follica completed an optimization trial, and a Phase 3 registration study in androgenetic alopecia is expected to begin in 2022.

As well as finding out about the magic elixir that is to be applied in conjunction. Or was that it established that is just minoxidil?
