    Those pics arent the best and my lights are dim in the bathroom, adding to the illusion of density. Im reality its thin, lifeless and diffusing all over. But thanks man. Yeah if this works we will have a threading party in Dallas!

    @ Jonnyyy im on foam minoxidil now but i may end up switching to liquid. Just dont want to skew the results by adding a new topical while evaluating this treatment, ya know.

    Thanks for sharing. You have similiar loss to mine, where hairline seems to be decent, but in fact hair is diffusing all over. Good luck.

    Thanks alot @champpy ! I would just encourage you to try to get some pics with better focus. You will want that too later on when you are trying to see if you have had any results or not. Try to get one from ”above” too. And some close ups. Just keep a steady hand on the iphone and you should be able to get better sharpness.

    Anyway, thanks again and good luck!

    PS: Shoot the picture directly at your head. Don’t use a mirror. Mirrors double the distance to the object you are shooting.

    Champy have u ever done 1.5mm dermarlolling ? Any results ? Hence want to see if this gives a better result. Also in tge study didnt they mention a slight pull on the skin ? I.e scalp lift of bald areas up to top of head ? I.e do u need barbed threads ? As this would decompress bald skin on top and help blood flow and growth ?

    I believe they used smooth threads only in that study. From what I understand they didn't lift the skin with the threads but they kind of pinch the skin together and then inserted the needles underneath. That's probably going to be the trickiest part of this whole procedure is the scalp skin is so tight they have to pinch it to get underneath it

    How are we going to know if this actually works when you have a dull head of hair?

    I wish him all the luck in the world, but I have to agree, unless you have pretty astonishing results, it's going to be very difficult to judge the results because you still have too much hair

    I'll be able to tell if I maintain or regrow. I'll try to get better pictures at some point but the ones I posted are a little tricky because my bathroom is dark and it makes my hair look darker and thicker. I didn't want to use a flash because that can be deceptive too.
    It may look full and thick in those pictures but trust me it's not.

    If it's in the area where he has little to no hair, then we should be able to see a response.

    I reckon you should take some photos that properly show where you're starting from. There can't be any room for ambiguity in the 'after' pictures like the bullshit we're usually treated to, it's gotta be same hair length & style, lighting and camera angle.

    I thought the the people who did the research were apart from Follica, but they're advisors, at least we know Follica will be effective.

    It was about 10 years ago. I was using Dr Lees high strength minoxidil I think it was 10% with asaic acid & finasteride it didn't do too much for the first 3 months then I added rolling with a 0.5 derma roller every day and it sprouted really well over the next 4 months(sorry I don't have pics).
    I went from a norward 4 to a 2, although it didn't do much for my crown were I have a large bad spot. Cr Lee got closed down so I went back to using a standard 5% minoxidil. I was about 44 at the time so I recon my scalp was probably thick and in bad condition so it really helped with the absorption of the minoxidil.
    Unfortunately I had to stop using finasteride as it caused depression and brain fog so I am now maintaining with RU & minoxidil although I still derma roll once a week with a 1.5 roller. Like most of us on here just keeping what I can and waiting for a miracle to come along.

    I don't have many posts on this forum but consider me a fan of the theory of causing "safe" damage to produce neogenesis and trigger repair mechanisms in order to increase hair count and density.

    I have faith on this. I have so much faith that if champpy pictures show some progress, I'll be next in line to ask dermatologists in my area about this procedure, and I'll do it. Money won't be a problem, and I promise I'll document as best as I can. But please champpy document this well man. Best of luck and thank you!
