    Gotten massive thickening on some areas. When I look back at a photo I took one month after I started needling, there is an area on the front of my my scalp that was basically super thin. Now I looked at a photo I took today and it's super thick and dark and that's just one area. There is clear progress.

    Top left picture (dry hair) from november 11, one month after my first needling session. Top right (oily hair) and bottom picture (dry hair) are from today. Obviously different lighting and hair length on both of these, but still. Look at the top front and top right. What do you think?

    That's mad regrowth in such a short period, guessing you started losing hair fairly recently? Possibly dermapens could have much more potential than shitty Chinese rollers

    8 years sh*t son, i always thought one mechanism of action behind minoxidil is it's ability to inhibit collagen formation. Most people consider this a bad thing, and it would be if it goes too systematic or spreads to the face, but if fibrosis is indeed made up of excess collagen then it may explain your rapid regrowth. Keep at it man

    Haha, I hope so man.

    Honestly though, really hope this works for all of us and for those of you who aren't or won't get any good results without min, no need to worry. Just try it with min eventually. At least you won't be poisoning yourself with finasteride.

    It's nothing on the skin shedding from chemical peels. I've found if it's really bad and you need to leave the house or see people without a hat on then mix a little coconut oil with water and massage your scalp with it, the moisture instantly hides away the flaking skin

    Awesome post man, and as everyone has said thank you for providing the insight. I think people don't realize even if they aren't seeing overall results within three months it doesn't necessarily mean they aren't getting them. I'm seeing alot of positives, thickening of existing hair, but one amazing thing is the vellus hairs you can see at the hairline under "only certain light". That means that this is working. I think patience is definitely key. One other cool thing is now when i apply minoxidil i used to lose 10 or so hairs maybe more. Now i literally lose 1-2.

    Lets just say we did all get good regrowth and achieved the results we wanted. Do you think we could then needle less frequently to maintain? Personally i don't care if i have to do it once a week the rest of my life it really hasn't bothered me. However i'm just wondering if it would be necessary at that point.

    On edit - I realized you said a couple posts back about you literally stopped for months and never lost ground. Just was wondering about your opinion overall.

    What I'm wondering is what happens if we drop minoxidil after we get the results we want. Wonder if needling alone will keep that hair.

    Well according to the couple anecdotes we have it seems like its definitely possible. I mean personally i can deal with minoxidil. I just would never touch finasteride again. Obviously if i could maintain at that point by wounding once a month heavily just on its own i'd be happy.

    That would be awesome. You save both money and a ton of time by doing this, and your face will most likely get to look a lot better even if you didn't get wrinkles. If a few users actually came out and say it worked, then I would consider it for sure.

    It would have to come from those who have been on min for years or a longer time though.

    Nobody knows the answer to those. My totally non-fact based opinion is that once desired coverage is achieved, less frequent wounding would be needed for maintenance (I’m personally doing it every 2 weeks and seeing good stuff).

    For minoxidil, I still suspect that stopping it will give you some sort of shedding, but with continued maintenance wounding the shed would be recovered.

    I use minoxidil with wounding to give it a boost and motivate myself more, but if I had enough hair I doubt I’d still apply it because it makes hair look really crappy.

    As usual: only one way to know these things. Just keep it up folks.

    Guys, we have a wealth of information in here by now, but over time it becomes difficult to track, to really get the "big picture", and to keep track of the developments of the various individuals trying this.

    What do you think about some kind of survey in a separate dermarolling survey thread, where each member can update/edit their survey post when they feel there's relevant new info (e.g. once a month)? That way, we could have everyone's results in one place in an ordered fashion and could keep the discussion here in this thread.

    What do you think?

    I suggest the following to start; please add more (useful) fields you can think of. If many members agree, we could start a result/survey thread:


    Nickname:
    Age:
    Hairloss started at:
    Current Norwood:
    Treatment history:
    • [treatment1] since [month/year] until [month/year]
    • [treatment2] since [month/year] until [month/year]
    • and so on
    Needling since: [specify date or month/year]
    Needling until: ["still needling"; otherwise specify date or month/year in case you stopped]
    Needling frequency (average): [daily/weekly/biweekly etc.]
    Needling, total number of sessions:
    Needling device: [roller/stamp/pen and brand]
    Needling depth/needle length: [specify mm]
    Needling intensity: [no redness / mild redness / redness / drawing few drops of blood / drawing lots of blood]
    Needling side effects: [please specify, e.g. redness for X days, flaking after Y days, etc.]
    Using minoxidil: [yes/no]
    Using other treatments at the same time: [please specify]
    Witnessing regrowth: [yes/no]
    Regrowth since: [please specify as month/year or from start of needling, in weeks and/or months]
    Pattern of regrowth: [please describe, i.e. only vellus or also terminal and in which areas]
    Photos showing own progress or lack thereof: [please add photos, preferrably with timestamp on photo]


    We could also start a Google Docs Survey to have a nice table afterwards.

    I agree that’s why the old thread was closed but maybe now there is more appetite to see the different lengths people goto.

    I honestly think if people are going to get upset over that “and snitch” then they deserve to be bald :p
