Does anybody know of any studies that go past the 6 month mark?
This guy from tressless grew on completely bald areas using dermarolling and finasteride. Here are the pics day 1 to month 3 to month 6.
No such studies so far but you have to consider that Follica is placing all their bets on wounding and topical. So, long term must be safe.
So is (only) microneedling a valid maintenance therapy?
It appears to be the case, as it provides an 18 month period of maintenance.
Got the A9 derma pen . anyone having an issue keeping the needles locked in ?
Just had my first microneedling session with the device that the reddit guy uses.
At 2mm/full speed. Only did like 2 minutes over overall scalp, was uncomfortable on vertex area (also area that's worst hairloss wise with me). Overall it's not that bad. Did not bleed at all too.
How long do you guys microneedle and at what depth/speed?
Wasn’t really thinking about the safety, more results but that’s a good point
I think alls follica are doing is trying to make a derma pen look more sophisticated so people don’t just see their device and think well I can just buy a derma pen
I do exactly the same 2mm with the same pen as that
I’s say I spend about 5-7 minutes overall, I go over the same spot about 15-20 times with the pen at full speed
So what I mean is i’ll chose a spot and go over and over it in different directions and then move onto another spot go over and over that and then back to the previous spot, and go back over, all in all about 15 brushes over with the pen
I think we can see that this is at very least maintance for most people...going off both of the studies and progress that some of us are already having with some really good pics
That is it’s self is HUGE and if full heads who are prone to male pattern baldness start rolling it could be the end of baldness maybe? Or maybe it helps the people that have male pattern baldness for a certain reason and not where blood flow is not the only problem that is causing male pattern baldness
Okay, I only went over the same spot 3-4 times max. I'll cover it more next time.
That is just what I do mate, not a clue if it’s correct, but my hair is getting better so it does seem to be working, I just wanted to make sure it is well covered and everywhere is wounded
Well considering no one in either study lost ground then yes you can consider it a pretty powerful therapy but I still think they might need conventional therapy like finasteride that deals with dht.
I am going to try Zix until I know what's going on with the Brotion, but will never touch finasteride. That's for sure.
Result from MyThinningConfidence. He's getting even better results now. I believe he will end up at NW1.5
This is f*****g amazing!
How long untill the pain/irritation of the needling session subdues?
And without Minoxidil or Finasteride... God to the f*****g damn.
Most people trying this are not on finastride tho and it still seems to be working, finastride is such a sh*t option, and not even an option in my book, even if you don’t have sides that you notice anyway, doesnt mean you wont get them later down the line
My first session was the worst, just felt like my head was pulsing for about a couple of hours, nothing unbarable tho, my sessions started getting easier and less painful, although the pain doesn’t matter to me because of what it’s acheiving so maybe thats a factor
how long has he been doing it for? Ive started to see these new black hairs on my hair line to....im 8 weeks in.
