An Intro... This thread is a compilation of results photos posted in the large microneedling thread as of Page ~391 (2019-03-04). That thread is so large and has grown so fast that results often get buried quickly and are difficult to keep track of. One thing to point out is that I've tried to include the source of the postings where possible. Some are external to HairLosstalk forums and so keeping a record of where they came from is important. It can be quite easy for someone's regimen details to be lost - despite having good progress photos. On the topic of regimens… everyone is generally doing a different combination of things that could influence their results. Everyone was obviously fairly enthused to see the results from @74775446 having used only a Dermaroller and a Dermapen in combination with Minoxidil. Though in the results I've compiled below you'll find people using finasteride, Dutasteride, Essential Oils, Sandalore, Minoxidil, Needling Only, etc. Or they could be using any of the various micro needling devices like a Derma Roller with 192 pins, or 500+ pins, or a cheap Chinese Derma Pen, or an expensive Derminator pen device or a manual stamp! It can also be difficult to know the true influence needling has had if people started needling at the same time as other topicals or drugs. Unfortunately you need to take their anecdotal opinion to heart - for how much they believe needling helped their situation versus other components of their regimen. There is a fair amount of people in that thread that feel some form of needling has been a real difference maker for them - no matter what other topicals/drugs they are on. The bottom line is - sadly the Internet community won't provide a rigid control based study with these results… but that is also an okay thing. Someone out there might be on Finasteride and not responding and want to know what other options they have. Perhaps adding Microneedling is of interest to them and therefore they want to see someone using a needling regimen along with Finasteride. Where possible I've tried to include the details of people's regimens or at least tried to include their source posting so you can follow up with them on here or the other large thread. Note - this is not meant to replace the concerted effort done by @benjt2 in the survey thread here. That thread has a terrific, detailed survey by forum users who volunteered to provide more info on their background, regimens, response to needling so far. Consider this thread a very candid version of that. It is also not meant to replace the FAQ thread done by @Bill_Russo - which is a great resource and answers so many questions and is a place to ask more questions. I suppose if this thread is to serve any purpose it is to be a collecting point for photos as they are posted in the large microneedling thread. If I have any information inaccurate below, just let me know - I can fix it up. If you want (your) photos removed - no problem… just let me know. Also - if I've missed your photos let me know where they're at and I can include them. Now… to the photos!
