Why do you guys keep replying to him, I can't understand... it's such low-effort bait.

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

Sorry but I can't say whether you'd be better to stop finasteride or not. Just get the cheapest one you can find off Amazon or Ebay. A wired dermapen should cost $25 - 30.

So,

What norwood is everyone now?

How are even coming back to this thread like you have been proven right? LOL

you have been proven wrong, this is working for loads of us ( with at least 20 individual cases with photos to prove it) and it's working better than ANY current treatment at a fraction of the price with NO SIDES.. you just mad because you was wrong?

I'm on track for full regrowth and it's only been 3 months, I bet your so happy for me, thanks for asking :)

100% this guy has bought a pen and started following what we are doing

Small update on my needling.

I needled again last night (1.75 mm derminator on fast) and this morning my scalp (crown) feels softer - as in less calcification. Assuming that is actually a thing.

This is interesting to me because it’s ALWAYS felt like concrete to touch.

If it gets / feels harder again throughout the week I’m going to look at light needling between derminator sessions like what @chen does. Maybe his regime is breaking down the calcification and maintaining it.
i guess this is the way bro

6 month mark is around the corner homeslice. Don't forget to come laugh at us because we "piped the f*** down" with no pictures posted!
Or was it the year mark? You changed it everytime, so kinda hard to tell...
Either way, see ya then!

I do not know if I explained it right.
I pass dermaroller and minoxidil across the head to stimulate all hair and not just what I want to recover
I suggest cutting short hair from time to time, makes it easy to pass the dermaroller
As you can see I was a bald Norwood 4
good luck to all

So Chen is rolling twice a day for 5 minutes ON THE ENTIRE HEAD? Including the back and the side? Not only on the balder area (front/crown/top of the head)? That would show that the stress created on the skin is quite soft. Not only not bleeding, but also passing on the same spot probably twice of three times max. This also explain how he can handle the 14 times a week rolling routine.

Chen also said that he started doing it ONCE per day, and when he felt the body got adapted to this frequency, he started doing it twice a day.So Chen's frequency can be reached only after some time. I personally wound at 2.0mm (just started last month) once every ten days, wait the skin to be totally healed (4 days) and then roll at 1mm once per day until the next deep wounding rolling.

sorry in advance for long post. Just wanted to update from myself - I'm about 10 days away from 3 months. This continues to be the single best thing i've done for my hair. I'm a diffuse thinner, mostly mid and front mid scalp, moderate in the hairline and slight crown. I didn't have a terrible baseline and you can't tell i'm losing unless i told you.

Results are subtle. But every week or two i notice something different. All areas continue to thicken. The hairline as well, albeit at a slightly slower pace. I definitely think there is something to the "growing back in reverse order thing". If this continues i could have a near full head of hair. (i will def be taking pics regardless at 6 months).

I think chen is a great example on why to stick with things. Results can sometimes be very slight every month, but over time they build up. Thats what i think is a huge benefit of this treatment. Compounding results over time. Even if your not responding the side effects are minimal, why not keep doing it at least once a month long term.

Other observations....

- I wound hard every other session. I go over the same area 7-8 times with my DR pen till i see blood. Its not dripping blood or anything. Its just more aggressive to switch it up. I do think this helps me personally, but as we've seen everyone is different.

- Grey hair - I tried wounding a small area on the side of my head which has some grey's (i'm nearing 40). I do this like once every 3-4 weeks. Surprisingly in that same area there is less grey. I want to try to do it over a bigger area as i have some grey popping up all over. Not that it bothers me, just testing it out.

Exclusively micro needled for 4 months and my hair loss actually accelerated during this time. Whether it's down to microneedling or not, I don't know. Experimented with 2 stamps, 2 rollers and tried weekly, bi weekly and daily.

Applied minoxidil for the first time today since late November. Going to ease into it this time (while continuing microneedling) and see what happens.

If I get sides again then I think it's pretty much over for me.

so, i actualy use 1.0 and 0.5 every day , twice a day and i pass more 10 times the same place, because 0.5 is very light and the 1.0 have dermaroller diferente types , so my first dermaroller in the first year i used 1.0 only. but the new i needed mix the 0.5 and 1.0 because these dermaroller are different and hurt more.
many times i use dermaroller for 10 minutos and 15 minutes i put youtube videos and go on.
and the few months ago i added massages on all my head at least once a day but it is normal i to do 3 times or more massages.
but no blood and high frequency
if you use 0.5 you will go very fast so will pass much more the 10 times in the same place.

Hi Chen, am I right to assume you do the daily needling to enhance absorption of minoxidil? I believe you mentioned you do it softly in one of your past posts.

Am getting decent rollers next week. My plan is to use 0.25mm hard every second day or daily for absorption of topical and once a fortnight 1mm hard for regrowth (neogenesis).

I started microneedling last Friday after seeing this & the other thread, just finished my second session.
I use the MyM derma pen, which is pretty good, and only cost $25 on ebay.
I'm NW2-2.5, have been using minoxidil for a year.
I've lost some ground since I started min, but here's hoping that changes. Just a week after my first session some of my tiny blond temple hairs have turned black.
2.5mm weekly, lidocaine 2% prior, minoxidil immediately after.
Just did my 4th session. I see a lot of small black hairs on my hairline now and I could argue that if they were full-size I'd be NW1.
I also got a haircut today.

Could you elaborate on your scepticism, despite the results?
Dude! No! The guy is a pain in the ***... rather than us all having to read more of his bad attitude why don’t you go through and read all his posts. Thanks! ;)

I haven’t really seen any cosmetic results either and I’m also around four months.

I’m about to go on holiday for three weeks. I’m going to go on minoxidil when I get home and if I get sides I’m going to try push through em.

The only other thing I’d say is that if you stop before 1 year you’ll never know whether microneeding worked for you or not.

Best of luck bro!

Do you pass the dermaroller also on the side and the back of the hair (where you never lost hair)?
