    Based it on one study, I believe, was every 4-6 weeks. However, I've seen no gain at all so, I'm likely to be continuing at 2x/month going forward.

    First and foremost, hope everyone is doing well. I'm about 3 months in now myself and no growth to report. I sadly may be one of the non-responders. I think I'm going to keep going by scale back to twice a month or every ten days as every 7 seems like a lot. Also seems as though others have commented on this but I have a whole lot of flakes coming off at around days 4 through 7 after needling.

    Last thing, still no consensus on if applying minoxidil right after is superior or not? Seems like it might be a little dangerous to do with a vasodilator but I'm not completely sure.

    I did my most intense session a few days ago. The lymph nodes are enlarged again. I can confirm that if the session is intense enough, for me, then the lymph nodes become swollen.

    Orange 86: then we are in the same boat. No problems with the crown but hairline is thinner and temples are growing slowly.

    At the moment i dermapen once a week with 1.5mm and i use ket 2 a week. Thats is it but would like to add another item in order to make it my side effect big 3. Ideally, this is CB if I could only get hold of it.

    I will continue the weekly dermapen sessions the next couple of months and then do it only every two weeks over the summer. I am a beginner, just had two sessions.

    Any futher suggestions would be appreciated.

    I can relate to this. I generally eat an anti-inflammatory diet, eat a lot of pumpkin seeds and flax seeds every morning and frequently use turmeric and black pepper. I've been doing intense scalp massages for two years (albeit infrequently lately). My hair loss has halted and I haven't had any major shed or change for the worse in a long time.

    How much pumpkin seed oil do you consume? I generally try to avoid oil in my diet, but I consider reintroducing this one. From what I've read, sulforaphane also inhibits 5-AR (found in broccoli sprouts).

    An update to my micro needling progress:

    Last year I used a 1.5 dermaroller for about 3.5 months. I stopped using it in early January because it was getting worn-out. I also applied a mixture of rosemary oil and pumpkin seed oil, but not regularly. All in all, I had no visible progress.

    Since then, I've been wanting to get a derminator but ultimately couldn't afford it. Now I bought two dermastamps, 1.5 and 2.0 mm. I also bought a roll-on applicator to make the application of rosemary and pumpkin seed oil less annoying.

    Although I didn't see any real progress last time, I'm aware that this can take a long time, especially without the use of minoxidil. I'm committed to give this another try without any breaks for a year.

    I’m going to add Cilostazol to my regimen to partially make up for not using Minoxidil. I refuse to use minoxidil aswell mainly due to the collagen breakdown and skin aging issue.

    We need a summary of all topicals we can use in the microneedling FAQ.

    How do you get rid of sebum - KET shampoo is all that we need or are alternativ measures required?

    The itch between needling and daily Minoxidil is so annoying. Any tips regarding this?

    Haven't experienced this. Maybe something else going on?

    Also have flare ups of itch days after microneedling, suppose this is because of the healing process.
