    If you saw this guy's latest video update, you can see he's regrown quite a lot of hair. He used to be slick bald. Ao that's quite impressive. Apart from dermarolling, he also rinses his hair with apple cider vinega before. And, he uses topical DHT blockers.

    Saying that, I did my second dermastamping session yesterday. It was intense. I drew some blood. It hurt like a bitch. I applied rosemary oil after 2 hours. So this is how I'll go about it, I reckon.

    Wow, he doesn't even use Minoxidil right? And only does 0.5 mm, interesting...

    Nope. But he uses topical dht that contains pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto, nettle roots etc. I took nettle tea for a month following that I had a horrible hair loss. It is different for each people. What works for one person may not work for another. But one thing is constant that if you microneedle, then there's huge possibility that you will have some sort of success

    With dermarolling, if you discontinue using it, will you lose what you've gained like you would with minoxidil or finastride?

    I started it about 4.5 month's ago, along with the other two, so I can't say which one has worked for me but I absolutely hate dermarolling! I'd like to stop using it but the results I've had so far are fantastic so I'm contemplating whether or not I want to do it. It's time consuming, painful, and it leaves my hair looking like crap for about 3 days afterwards.

    You have "fantastic results" Why not continue but on a lower frequency. Microneedle once/two weeks or if you really hate it once/month OR get some pain numbing product.

    Edit: Saw your pictures, yup those are great results indeed!

    This is still a bit of an unknown, as far as I am aware. There is some anecdotal evidence that you keep your gains but I think that was only one guy's experience. Maybe others know more but we're still in the early days of trialling this.

    I usually do it once per week but perhaps you're right. Pushing it to every 2-3 would make it feel like less of a chore.

    Straight into the deep end. There's no time wasting when it comes to balding!

    Do it once a month for maintenance. I don't think stopping it altogether is a good idea

    Well guys, I think in a couple of months, i'll join the dermarrolling team :) it's not easy for me because I live with my family and I don't want them to find out. My question to you is, as a Norwood 2.5 Who just wants some of his temples back, would you just dermarroll that area or the whole scalp? Also, you think in such a soft case is better the regular approach or the Chen way?

    Do think that you need more than just needling if you want to regrow your temples.

    Im also on finasteride since 2017 (i was norwood 2) in last months what's left of my temples is getting diffuse. Also I'm a Minoxidil non responder. Another option is adding dutas but I'm scared

    That’s how I feel about all of this, no time to waste trialing things separately, bring out all the heavy weaponry you can manage and go full out assault mode. I’m happy with the results I’ve had so far but I’m constantly researching and ordering more drugs/compounds I can add topically. I have a feeling my results are going to explode when I add Cilostazol, Equol and Procyanidin to the mix.

    Don’t be a Guinea pig, just go all out fellas

    You should try Minoxidil again with microneedling to see if you improve.

    I'm on a similar situation and I do my whole head. I'd say, if you can take it then do the whole scalp. If you really can't or just don't see how it could improve then do the temples.
    You can always go hard on the temples and a bit softer on the rest of your head. Kinda middle ground there.
    Chen's approach carries a higher risk of cancer (this is why the dermarolling people recommend monthly sessions, there are also a couple of studies about it; see the FAQs thread), so consider that one at your own risk.
    And as BigOl' said, try Minoxidil again. Numbers was also a non responder to Minoxidil and look at him now.
    Good luck and welcome to the team. Stab it back to life!

    Hmm, so is the verdict that it's pretty much pointless to do this unless you want to be a on finasteride or min?

    The verdict is that it's too soon for a verdict.
