    One of the published studies one the other thread looked at microneedling without and showed some regrowth. Think it was carried out in Brazil.
    Anyway it does help just not as much as combined with minoxidil.
    The hairlicoisly guy did a results video with before and after pictures on his YouTube channel (might be easier than trawling through pages upon pages), some of those were microneedling alone.

    Can we point to a ton of total non responders to micro needling? And if so what % would anyone estimate? Ive been doing 1mm about every 10 days and a .3-.5 with minor for about 6 months and haven't seen tremendous results, though I may be seeing some new healthy hairs lately. I have been doing aggressive massaging for about 3 weeks so that may be helping. Im considering buying up to a 1.5 however..

    I live in Brazil and had the first MMP session last monday. You are correct, the doctor did the microneedling using minoxidil and growth factors. | didn´t want to put finasteride in the mix because i stopped it one year ago, after 22 years of usage. My second session will be in 30 days and the last one will be on december. It was very painful, but no blood,

    After these three sessions, i will keep the treatment at home with a dermapen.

    Btw, the photos i saw at her clinic were impressive. That´s why i decided to give it a chance. If i see results, i will post the pictures here at this great thread.

    Oh, about the minoxidil, she asked to do not use for two days. Today i restarted.

    @kiwipilu I am looking for a spray with methyl vanillate. I couldn't find one though. What do you use?

    Is the same true if you needle 1.5mm HARD on recipient area from hair transplant?

    Thank you!

    1.5mm? Dermastamp?

    Do you go hard as in you see blood?

    I went hard as hell with 1.5mm for 3 months.

    There's a spot on my left side hairline that took a hit, but I'm just hoping it's maybe some weird shock loss or something and will come back to normal...

    My Doctor says its impossible to cause damage to recipient area with 1.5mm

    **EDIT**

    I noticed this in mid FEB 2020.

    It's now April 27, I think It's recovering slowly.... I wonder if I caused shock loss perhaps and/or chopped a bunch of hairs with how aggressively I was going at it?

    Forgive me if this belongs in the other microneedling thread but what’s the consensus on longer hair and being most efficient? I got have a dr pen and tried to maneuver around handfuls but I either go over the same area twice or so or feel like I’m not getting enough penetration without separating the hair. Thanks in advance

    Hi guys, a question about the procedure. I have a Dr Pen A6, just started yesterday on 1.25mm, do you press hard on your scalp as you do it? Obviously it hurts more and goes further in, but I wonder if the 1.25mm setting means that just by placing it normally on your head it’s 1.25mm or you have to press it down hard for it to be 1.25mm.

    hopefully that wasn’t too confusing and wordy. Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks dude!

    I had mine 3 yrs before needling.

    Your experience made me feel a lot better, thank you.

    Dermarolling is helping the recipient area?

    Did you notice recipient area quality declining after a while pre-needling?

    I'm curious why you think there might be a problem? After your hair transplant has healed donor hairs are just like native hairs except DHT resistant.

    Ok so here's the deal.

    I was using dermastamping once week or 10 days... and I also started a T3/T4 thyroid medication at the same time.

    By 3 months, I noticed my left side was getting messed up. I dropped the T3/T4 meds and the dermastamp. It could have been both and the T3/T4 caused an issue too...

    Worried that the transplanted hairs were damaged by my VIGOROUS dermastamping until bleeding always rountine.

    Seems to be improving now though.

    Were you dermastamping beyond 5mm? Because it would seem that's the only way to damage follicles.

    1.5mm dermastamp, 12 needles.... what if I did it really hard tho? I regularly had blood and scabbing that would take a few days to resolve.
