Have you been on minoxidil before?
I had no healing time for a big 1.5 mm session so I did a 0.5 mm session half an hour ago. My skin is very red, that's a good sign. I applied 2 ml of Minoxidil directly after needling. Do you guys think this is dangerous?
Yes I Have on and off for years with no results before needling
I cannot believe all these years of worrying about my hair and the answer was a click away on amazon all that time...
Oh well better late than never ..
Yeah it seems surreal to me.
I'm really wondering if needling would be enough for maintenance. Imagine being able to drop all topicals and pharmaceuticals...
Thank you so much for all your effort on this thread!
Excellent progress - keep on needling. How about the temples. Making any progress there as well?
Would. Be interested in sandolor as well. Could you let me know which product you buy and how you apply it? Hopefully it. Is available on Amazon as well
My temples are a lot stronger than they was before, I don't have a before pic but i'll add temple shot next time i upload progress
I bought sandalor from pellwall and added 1% to vanicream that I got from amazon, I copied the guy in the sandalor thread that was seeing slight results
I don't put much of my progress to sandalor becuase i started seeing results before I added it. But you never know
I think scalp massages definitely help
It is kind of crazy to think all you needed was to turn your head into a pin cushion.
I'm glad to have helped the thread along. Although it's easy when guys like you keep walking in with early results. I'm just noise at that point.
Hey everyone, just finished my 7th session a few days ago... almost close to the two month mark.
I started everything in my regimen at the same time around the end of January, but so far so good. I see a lot of small hairs coming in and brushing through my hair it definitely feels fuller and stronger.
Here's my regimen:
minoxidil (5%, liquid) x2 daily
finasteride (1mg) daily
Nizoral (1%) twice a week, biotin shampoo otherwise
Dermaneedling (with Derminator 2, 12 needle) once a week, started at 1.5mm but the past few weeks (3 sessions) I have been at 1.75mm. minoxidil directly after (I don't wait at all, haven't had any sides)
Biotin and Vitamin D daily
Here's a comparison photo, sorry about the difference in lighting:

Goddamn it, Longway, keep going man. Congrats! Undeniable results and your pictures are an excellent example of how the before and after ones should be disolayed: same hair length, same angle, same illumination.
Everyone should follow this example. I don't mean to be rude, but I should mention that many users have posted pics in an incorrect manner. Just follow this example for a fair and unbiased comparison.
Rssults are clear as day, congrats! Have you noticed anytime during the 3 months that your hair went back down to baseline or even worse? Or has it been constant and steady growth and thickening?
Wow dude, excellent results! It seems youre going to be the next prettyfly.
It has been up and down really, some days doubting my progress some days it being obvious, i think like some posters have said that is is so important to keep a picture diary with dates ( something I haven't done too well) because a lot of it I think is your mind playing tricks
I'd say i could see that this was working within a couple of weeks, the first thing that happened with me was my exisiting hair got much thicker and darker and was far easier for me to do a comb over, but I think the first couple of months its really hard to judge if it's working or not
People really need to just stick with this
I apply minoxidil straight after 2mm needling, I don't think it's dangerous and nothing bad has happened with me and I think applying minoxidil straight after was in the chinese study ( this is only my opionion from doing it, don't take it as gospel)
I think you’ll survive
I’ve read multiple people report applying min straight after needling and aside from it stinging nobody has reported anything negative. Not that I can recall and I have read pretty much every page.
It’s Monday night in NZ. On Friday night I needled at 1.75mm (derminator 2 on fast).
On Saturday (or Sunday) NZ time I reported that my scalp felt softer after the Friday session.
And today it’s hard again. Feels hard!
I’d be curious to know whether other people have noticed that their scalps (crown) feel softer the next day after needling. But they get harder again after a couple of days.
Can any long term needlers experiences success report that their scalps feel softer all the time?
Still no improvement for me, needling for quite some time now, forget how many months. I think my follicles are just dead and not coming back to life no matter what i do. Really considering tranny route or a transplant.
Whats your regime?
Transplant is useless witjout maintanance
