    True, i guess we can consider my post a 150 page recap for now, people can build on it each time we reach another 50 pages.
    I don´t know if the threadstarter can edit his post but if so he could add the information there

    Imagine smearing minoxidil in _your f*****g face_ for beard growth.
    Beards are so lame if you have hair, just a nuisance. If it wasn't for my baldness I'd probably wish for no beard growth at all.

    We like to obsess over the things we don't have. It's a matter of perspective. I mean, I didn't care about my hair before I started losing it. I bet those people wouldn't care as much about their beards if they grew them naturally.
    There's this one middle aged dude with a thick NW1, I've been behind him a few times while I was waiting to get a cut. Every single one of those time he's complained about how much hair he has and how much he hates to go cut it every month. Now THAT'S one tomato *** motherfucker I'd tell to "just shave it".
    Then you have us. We're stabbing our heads to get our hair back. Kinda the same with those dudes and their beards.

    Talk about yourself. The idea of losing my hair mortifies me since I am six years old, not even joking.

    And yeah you take hair for granted when you have it, but most people realize that it would suck hard to lose it when confronted with the idea. The other half delusionally thinks they could be Jason Statham.

    Hey man, sorry if you've already answered this in earlier in the thread (I imagine you did), but when during your process did you start seeing actual aesthetic benefit? Like at 2 months did you notice you had some vellus hair going terminal? Thank you in advance!

    In the studies they used 1.5 uo to 2 mm so I would rdcomreco to use the same size.

    One proviso?

    With a pen you can be more certain you’ll get a more event spread of needles penetrating at whatever setting you use.

    The pen will always penetrate at X. Whereas I think with manual needling there is a chance of human error.

    I highly doubt the people in the studies did it themselves. They would have had the people working on the trial do it.

    So I do think there is value in the pens but maybe not 100% necessary.

    No I know how this device works, I want to know how to use it on your head, how often on which part of the head and so on.

    Personally I just do circular motions on the thinning areas at fastest setting. Vertically, horizontally and diagonally. 10-15 mins and I'm done.

    That's the one I ordered. Came quickly via Amazon. Probably not much different than other pens.

    Only 1 session in, but it worked great. Very simple to use... the cartridges are threaded for this one and screw on easily. The button will select one of half a dozen speeds... I just went for the fastest. Not much else to it... just clench your teeth, grin and tell yourself what you're doing is tooootally normal :)

    edit: as for technique ... that might vary from user to user depending on how much hair you have in the way. For me... I'm fairly thin on top so no need to part anything like numberman. I just tried to set up a mental grid as I went to ensure coverage. I didn't do circular motions as I went, just straight lines, but I can see how circular motions as you move might make sense too... I'll have to try that.

    So when you are going for 10 or 15 minutes, you treat every area on your head several times, right?

    Yup, but really I think you just need to achieve that clear redness

    Weekly or bi-weekly

    Some do it Somebody style.

    Just like hair the beard gains also vary wildly. Some cannot seem to convert those thin vellus hair into terminal for a year and then it turns around for them. Some get those gains in 9 months, 6 months and the fastest responders show great progress in just 3 months.

    I did a session some time ago by mistake using a 1mm session. I didn't feel that the outcome compared to a 1.5 mm dermaroller was the same. 1.5 mm is definitely more effective in wounding. But if you are get red and "bleeding" you are fine.
