    The thickness of scalp is diferent among us, then the suitable lenght of the pen is related to the thickness of our scalp dermis.

    Microneedling is not a life treatment, only used when we want the growth of new hairs, constanly wounding our scalp is not aceptable

    I remember comments from people who had hair growth when they suffered a continuous stimulus, like those who worked carrying ice bars on their shoulders. Sadly, all these cases refer to body hair.

    I am with you

    Interesting, maybe oxidized sebum?

    Oh I guess I didn't read OPs entire post.
    Well that's good then hopefully this is a new therapy people can start including in their hair treatment.
    OPs result are just really intense, hopefully others can duplicate.

    Figured I'd share these pics with you guys. This is from earlier this year end of Janury to end of May on finasteride, minoxidil, and dermarolling. First two pics are from January. First is wet hair second is dry. Up until this point I'd only been using finasteride for about 9 months. Maintained very well but got very little regrowth. End of January(when these pics were taken) is when I added minoxidil. Started dermarolling about a month later, every week 1.5 mm with a Dr. Pen. Didn't apply minoxidil for 24 hours after. The last two pics are end of May. Third pic is wet and last is dry. Def made huge gains primarily from minoxidil and dermarolling

    I used the pen once, then decided to invest in the derminator.
    It definitely feels a lot better using the derminator.

    From what I’ve read the pens are powered by a battery similar to what’s used in something like an electric toothbrush. You can notice the power difference in the derminator battery and it seems more precise .

    If it works it will be worth the cash. It is recommended by the majority of people on the acne/skin forums who switched over from pens.

    I used it at 2.25mm and I was bearable, after using an electronic device I would never consider using one of them cheap sh*t rollers again, I had a 1.5mm roller and it was brutal, I can see why some say it shreds the scalp.

    How is the pain with a derminator compared to a pen? Do you feel like you can more thoroughly wound with the derminator?

    Yes, you can feel the pen drag a little and the derminator seems to wound more accurately, you can also set the speed you want.

    Pain is minimal.


    I thought it was all maybe marketing BS, but it's a quality piece of equipment.

    Been like 17 days since I started. I started it with a buzzcut , but it kind of feels like it's gotten thicker. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it grows out more.

    Btw are you guys planning to take a break after the 3 months?

    I used the Derminator last night at 1.5mm. It was les painful to me than my dermaroller. However, at one point, I think I pushed down too hard and it stuck in my scalp for a second leaving a red patch in that spot as I moved it away. But it didn't seem to ooze blood like you can get with my 1mm dermaroller. I find needling the back of crown to be quite painless but increases noticeably from the vertex to the frontal area. Next, I'll apply topical min, finasteride, aa, tretinoin, hydrocortisone, bimatoprost topical (aka Promox) in 24 hrs.

    Anybody noticing their skin peeling or flaking 4-7 days after using the dermapen? My temple areas are definitely shedding skin since this was the area I was pretty aggressive on when dermarolling. I assume it’s just healing. Not sure if this has happened to anybody else.

    Holy hell, I just did my first session this really hurts bad especially around the hairline. I used 1.5mm to start and it was too much, so I put it down to 1mm and it was better. My head feels like I have moderate sunburn not too bad. Will start using minoxidil tomorrow, I’ll check back in in 3 months.

    Definitely hurt me as well even at 1.5mm. Bit hard on a towel when I upped it to 2mm. The redness almost instantly comes up at 2mm for me, but I have to take small pauses because it’s painful.

    Thanks for sharing your progress, bro. Sorry to hear you didn't get the desired regrowth. This kind of concerns me given that I was hoping that most people would get noticeable regrowth but as I suspected there are extremely good responders (such as the OP) and also moderate to non-responders. You got some regrowth tho, perhaps you can give it some more time to keep getting coverage.
    I have a question, you say that your regrowth was due to minoxidil and dermarolling, yet you started all three (incl. finasteride) simultaneously. How do you know finasteride wasn't the cause of your success ?

    Oh I'm not complaining. I got pretty great regrowth. My friends all commented how much better my hair was. I didn't start all three at the same time. I had started finasteride in April 2017 about 9 months before the first picture was taken. That's why I'm pretty sure my results were mostly from minoxidil and dermarolling

    I did my first session last Saturday and now my skin is kind of flaking at the needled parts. Like when you had a sunburn and the skin peels.

    Do you have that also?
