    Who knows if it deals with grey hairs as well. But.... After going thru the nightmare of baldness, I wouldn't care at all about greying hair. I'd actually like it. I envy those dudes complaining about their greying manes, having a full hair of freaking hair...

    Yeh the grey hair definitely takes a back seat after baldning but it would be amazing if needling sorts out both at once..

    I didn't get any worse and my hair got noticeably darker within a few weeks too.

    I responded really well initially to finasteride+min and was above baseline for ~6+yrs. I lost ground the last few years but i'm probably right around baseline now.

    How often is ok to do the face at 1 mm? Every week or two weeks?

    Did you return to baseline after losing the gains of finas+minoxidil? Or you even went below baseline, and then went up to baseline again thanks to needling?

    Has anyone noticed, the longer it gets after needling the itch starts to come back?

    Maybe the itch is a sign that our follicles are started to be attacked

    Your crown is definitely closing in, and as wounding research shows us, this is exactly how a bald spot is supposed to close in because of how growth factors are released.

    Man I didn't realize the redness lasted two days. I wet shave my head and so the redness is right there for all to see not to mention the face needling I did. Does the redness period get shorter as you continue?

    Maybe medium speed instead? lol

    I purchased an Dr Pen Ultima A9. W/ 12 pin carthage @$129. Shipping took 2 weeks because it came from China. I live in US.

    Used it for the first time today and holy crap! Feels very good. I tested the waters cautiously and couldnt go over 1mm. however my scalp feel like its on fire.
    I strongly recommend anyone serious about hairloss to get an eletronic stamper.
    I tried a dermaroller @ 1.25 mm before and a dermarstamp. Those dont compare.

    Minoxidil in its oral form is a blood pressure medication, the risk of using more is that it gets absorbed into your system and starts acting like the pill rather than the topical. Just watch out for the sides that might indicate that you're reacting to it getting absorbed into your system. I pasted some info for the pill below:

    Minoxidil Side Effects Center

    Common side effects of Minoxidil include:
    • dizziness,
    • drowsiness,
    • tiredness, and
    • temporary edema (swelling) while taking this medication, especially during the first few weeks as your body adjusts to the lower blood pressure. This is normal.
    If these side effects of Minoxidil persist or worsen, tell your doctor promptly. Other side effects of Minoxidil include:
    • nausea,
    • vomiting,
    • breast pain or tenderness, or
    • changes in the color, length, or thickness of body or facial hair
    Patient Information (Source:Multum)
    Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

    Call your doctor at once if you have:
    • new or worsening chest pain;
    • chest pain spreading to your jaw or shoulder;
    • fast or pounding heartbeats;
    • swelling in your legs, ankles, or feet;
    • rapid weight gain, especially in your face and midsection;
    • shortness of breath;
    • a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out;
    • fluid build-up in the lungs--pain when you breathe, feeling short of breath while lying down, wheezing, gasping for breath, cough with foamy mucus; or
    • severe skin reaction--fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling.
    Common side effects may include:
    • changes in color, length, or thickness of body or facial hair;
    • nausea, vomiting;
    • rash; or
    • breast pain or tenderness.
    This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur.

    So growth factors are more active around the edges of a bald spot closing it in gradually towards the center? Interesting. do you have a source by chance?
