The majority of you guys going at a depth of 2mm or deeper? 2mm causes redness and occasional blood dots for me, but nothing close to some of these butchering blood photos I’m seeing of some of your scalps.

I have noticable redness that lasts 72 hours after every session. However, do I need to go deeper and shred my scalp even more to get even better results? 2mm at this point does not hurt much anymore. It’s just uncomfortable, but tolerable.

I could go deeper, but curious if anyone getting results is in fact doing 2.5mm or even higher.

I use 1.5mm and i have results. You just need to press a bit harder. I don't butcher my scalp but it's hard enough where red dots appear as i roll.

I'm not trying to knock your results or demean or anything like that I'm just genuinely asking....what the heck do you do after a rolling session like that when your head is just covered in blood? How do you go grab a bite to eat or go to work the next morning? If this really works with diffuse thinners and minoxidil users I may have to give it a real go but it seems highly impractical to be walking around with what equates to a massive, open wound on top of the head.
It is well known that head wounds bleed profusely, but heal quickly. Just like a wound inside the mouth heals faster than one on your arm. This may have something to do with hair growth. Exaggerated healing to protect the scalp due to wounding. Growth factors rush to the wound for quick healing and regeneration of tissue.

I don't hear nobody in this thread talking about iodine. In the indian study they put betadine(a iodine form) on the scalp. I think this is a underrated point. If u remember 2young2retire also use betadine.
But there is more. In a 2005 case study they investigate about topical iodine(lugol) on wound regeneration and they discover the possibility of hair rigeneration.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.re..._A_case_report_An_interim_35_year_summary/amp

". Not all, but most important results are presented. Topical iodine induces hair growth in and around scars."

Also Cotsarelis in one of the follica's patent talk about apply some topical on induced wound. In the list of this topical he includes iodine ond others similar element like lithium.

Resuming : i think we must consider iodine and his derivates (betadine, lugol) not only like disinfectant, but also for their active role in hair regrowth.
Anyone else using betadine after needling? Also I don't bleed much on top of my head 2.5 months in but I do a lot now on my temples. I just don't understand the bloody scalp photos, it just doesn't happen with my derminator.

I think st this point, it’s safe to say that the infrequency of results from different users only adds to the argument of there being many different causes to hairloss. I have been needling + minoxidil for over 4 mos now, and have only gotten worse. I only had slight thinning in my hairline. When I started it was almost unnoticeable. Now, 4 mos in, its much more noticeable. Yet, diffuse thinners, or people with more severe loss have gotten some great results. Yet again we are seeing that hairloss continues to not allow us a one size fits all solution.

Before and now image or it didn’t happen.

For all we know you could be having a bad day. In two weeks you might wake up thinking daaaaaaaang I’m handsome look at my new hair.

Dude, don't post bloody pictures this thread will be locked like the previous one because of it.

I think it’s a legit photo. It looks a lot worse on the thumbnail. When you click on it it just looks like lots of red blood dots.

I think it contributes to our research. I’d hopecthe admis do too now.

New case of 8 sessions with Dermaroller once a week at 1.5mm. After 15 minutes Minoxidil is applied.

Wow if I were this guy I'd be crying of happiness. There are completely slick bald areas that got such good regrowth anybody who knows him would surely ask wtf happened. Noticeable results in 8 sessions is absolutely awesome and (probably) rare at the same time.

It may be different, but here’s the problem..... I haven’t even gotten that. And it seems that others on here have experienced the same thing. I set out on this for Maintenance, primarily, since I hat quit finasteride. If I got regrowth, fantastic... that’s a bonus. I haven’t gotten either, and it’s only gotten worse. Again, this has clearly worked for some people, but why there is there such an unpredictability as to whom it will work for?.....That is the big question.
If you're only rolling then even 4 months is still too early to conclude anything imo. And maybe your shedding weaker hair so healthier hair can grow back, more shedding isn't automatically a bad thing. Don't give up.

I was looking for dermapen on amazon and I came across this:

Is this true?

I’m not only rolling. Been using minoxidil the whole time.

How is that possible? Did he stop rolling or something?

We need to give needling MINIMUM a 1 year trial

I have gotten such good results at 9 weeks of microneedling that I am confident I will continue to improve.

I am thinking of lowering my dose of finasteride from 1 mg to .5 mg. I have been on finasteride for 6 years and in the last two I think my libido/erections have taken a hit. While I cant be certain it was finasteride, because I was side effect free before, more DHT wouldnt hurt. Anyone succesfully lowered their finasteride dosage or even come off it? What was the effect on your hair?

thats kinda discouraging, especially after it was reported that a guy here maintained most of his gains for 2 years. is it all in vain then?

The type of numbers also indicated that he had lost about amonth and a half.

Done with my first dermastamp 2.0 session. I was done in almost 5 mins. Covered all area. It hurts a lot but manageable. No blood. Some redness. Will apply rosemary oil mixed in water tomorrow morning after shower. It's night time here now. Goodnight fellas wish me luck.
