    If I judged my results after only 1 month, my hair would have been much worse than when I started and I would have given up straight away.

    Look at my progress album. All the photos are in chronological order so you can see that my shed was pretty bad, I was much more bald after 1 - 2 months of microneedling than I was before. After the 2 month mark things improved pretty quickly.

    My hair loss was worsening quickly but I still caught it early. I might be a freak responder but there are also things like catching it early that work in my favour. We're starting to see different people getting results at different times, so don't compare yourself to the best responders or it will just demotivate you.

    This is why I keep going on about the importance of photos. The only person's progress you should care about is your own. Who cares if I got crazy results after 3 - 4 months? It's good for me but makes no difference to anybody else. Take lots of photos and, if you see progression in the photos after 3. 6, 9 months or however long you're willing to try this then you should be over the moon!

    Thanks - the reassurance helps! After reading so many posts i suppose I know the shed is good news...it’s just easy to panic when you hit a bit shed and think that things have gotten worse and might not get better! Taking lots of pics though so hopefully will be sharing some results over the next few months

    Hey guys, just registered here but have been following this thread from the start - have read through 95% of the pages and it's encouraging to see some of the results you guys are getting!

    I have a question about Minoxidil - I'm currently using it twice per day (for the past 2 weeks) and my pen is arriving in the mail tomorrow. If I'm just using the minoxidil for the hairline/temples, does any need to go actually into the hairline, or just purely on the bald hairline/temples?

    My hair currently looks about like this, everything else is completely thick all over. This is not me - please forgive me if we're not allowed to use example pics. Just using it as an example in reference to where to place the minoxidil for someone like me.

    Cheers

    I know a shed is the opposite of what you want but so many people have experienced it that I think it's a good sign. Keep us updated!

    I apply it all over my scalp. No idea how evenly I manage to do it but I do try to do it evenly over the entire top of my head.

    It makes sense in your case as diffuse thinner. However, this guy like me has just a receding hairline. I will focus on this area only with min and apply just once a day for beginning. I will be needling with 1.5 mm all over my head though once a week

    Godd luck!

    Thanks...I'm using the stuff from amazon mixed directly into minoxidil. My first bottle was 5 drops to the 60ml but went to 3 drops on my second bottle. Twice daily unless directly after rolling...then I use straight min.

    Do y'all shower after dermarolling? I use betadine all over my scalp and on the needles themselves. It leaves a brown/red stain on my skin and dries up my hair a lot. I feel like I want to wash my head after?

    Hey guys, long time lurker here..
    I needle little over month, hair feels healthier and I got some coverage over thinning spots (diffuse thinning) less oily hair and dandruff.I needle every 4-5 days (1.5mm) with erythema and few blood spots sometimes. I know you're gonna say that's too much, but after 2 days my scalp recovers and when I examine it there is nothing (not even pain under pressure from my fingers). There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that people who got overexcited and needled more frequently got better results. Do you thing that maybe constantly restarting healing process can yield better results?

    Maybe, it's different for everyone I think.

    You say you're healed after 2 days. For me, it takes 4-5 days to heal, the first few days it hurts a bit if I try to comb. But I'm also doing 2mm at the fastest setting with a pen.

    Edit: Also have itch after needling

    Hey, I'm 24, heavy hair loss, currently on Alopexy Minoxidil + Finasteride for 1 month... I'm thinking of adding microneedling to it as well... Do you think that I should stop using finasteride? I don't think I experience any side effects.
    Also, could you please recommend me a dermapen or dermaroller? I'm mainly looking for something that can be done quickly and without hassle.
    Also, what length of the needles should I be using?
    Thank you! You bring me hope xd

    I've started needling .25mm every 2 days. This is mainly to tackle the itch I get which dermarolling seems to relieve for a good few hours. Problem I'm having is that the scalp is sore all the time and I'm getting blood spots even at this depth. It might be because I'm using the derminator and it's just a little too powerful for a light needle session. Thinking i'll buy a dermaroller and roll quite lightly.

    Congrats those who are getting results. Gives us all hope.

    Takes about three days for my skin to to heal at 2.5mm, strange that you get an itch though, i haven't experienced anything like that, or the flakes some people have mentioned.

    Where does everybody get their 12 needle cartridges for the Derminator 2?

    Has anyone tried using the Dr. Pen needles off Amazon with their Derminator 2? I know Own Doctor says not to but they look identical and I think it's just a way for them to draw you into buying their expensive needles.

    Any input would be appreciated.
