Just finished my first session with the DR pen A6. Did my entire scalp at 1.5mm and then my face for good measure.

Some quick notes:

1.) f*** sh*t DICK f*** sh*t f*** PISS HOLY GOD DAMN f*** THIS HURTS SO BAD

2.) lol my entire scalp is bloody? Should I wash it off?

3.) do I put minoxidil on? I feel like it would sting a lot and immediately all go systemic

I've been microneedling alone for 16 sessions now. But I haven't really had any results, hair continues to thin. I'm a diffuse Norwood 2.5

Remember that it took a couple people in the past a bit longer to see results without minoxidil. Stick with it a year. If you see something then you keep going hoping to compound things.


I went down to twice a month but then read the Chinese study. Now I'm back to weekly and applying minoxidil on the same day as needling.

I'm approaching 10 months of doing this and hope to be doing it for maintenance soon. I figured it was worth trying the Chinese study but I'm so happy with my hair as it is, that I don't actually care if I don't regrow more. I'll give it 2 months and if it's still the same I'll reduce my needling frequency, and it will be for maintenance of hair I've regrown.

Nice man... and I saw your most recent hairline photos starting to really fill in.It’s a good reminder for people to really stick with it. I def think we’ll be able to needle less frequently (not that the once a week really bothers me anyway)

I would love to see what you look like right now.

1. It gets easier

2. Yes, I always rinse with cold water after

3. I have started doing so. I thought it would sting but I didn't feel a thing. A Chinese study showed no increase in toxicity by applying directly after needling.

For numberman but also the others, is someone else not getting really bloody or even that red with a dermapen at 1.5-2.0mm?

Like yeah it gets a little red but I can barely see it. I think numberman is like me since in the video he barely gets red.

Ok thanks man. I put on minoxidil after 5 min, no pain, no side effects

Unfortunately didn’t take any pics but I sent a Snapchat of the aftermath to a female friend of mine who has trouble with acne and got back “pussy” so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I didn't really notice much redness until my wife pointed it out. It was more apparent to her than me. I only get the occasional pin prick of blood... nothing gory at all.

I noticed more blood in my earlier sessions (now about 7 sessions in). Now its more redness and i'm def going over it 4-5 times. If i do a heavier session (7-8 times) i notice more blood, but even then its more in spots. Only time needling gets uncomfortable now is if i pause a couple minutes between to "take a slight break". Then if i go back to needling on an irritated scalp theres a bit more pain.

I posted some post needling pics a few pages back, but I get super red/bloody with the Dr Pen A6 at 2mm. Looks like Edward scissor hands gave me a hair cut

Heres my update with pic below. I started needling dec 22nd, i have been on minoxidil for over a year and finasteride even longer. The pic is of my left temple. The yellow line indicates what i believe is growth from the year long usage of minoxidil. However, the bald spot, with the little hairs, i believe is from needling. The reason i believe this (and am prettty certain) is that i have been paying close attention to that area for a year, the most i have ever seen is peach fuzz, less than what you see here. So it could be a coincidence that after a year, minoxidil took it up a notch and decided to kick in, or min + needling really do work synergistically together.

I also feel that my crown is filling in a little bit, but i wont know for sure until i get a haircut because that will give a good comparison to my baseline picture, which illl post (assumming there is growth =P)

Here's new growth on my hairline. Unfortunately I don't know if it is the result of Minoxidil or the roller or both. 2 1/2 months Min and 1 month rolling.

Yea unfortunately, there is no way of knowing, but who cares, thats awesome! Six years when my hair lost started, i was a really good responder to minoxidil, i went from a nw3 (diffuse hair loss) back down to my original thickness.
