    Alright, I am pretty sure that (for some) dermaneeding causes shock loss. For 4 mos straight I needled (1x week, 1.5mm), and the left and right side of my temples thinned out like never before. I know that for some people, this is accompanied by new growth...... that was not my experience. For the last month I stopped needling and the shedding decreased dramatically. As frustrating as it, it seems like there might be something to the shock of it all. I don’t understand that, because it seemed like only positives could come from this. Never the less, it has been my experience. When I started, I could notice my lack of density, but not others. Now, it is easily noticeable, in all lighting situations. I’m glad some have gotten great regrowth, but it seems that this really only helped with those that had diffuse thinning. I just needed a bit of a density boost in the temples, and ended up far worse. This is also while using minoxidil with sandalore.

    I think overneedling is the cause of this, some people need more time to heal. Why not try needling 1x/2 weeks?

    Minoxidil is needed. I just wish they’d bring something out that has the same working mechanism as minoxidil but none of the water retention and cardio issues bullshit. Then again I don’t think anyone knows how minoxidil actually grows hair.

    I was using minoxidil. @Pigeon - you may be right. Might try again with less frequency, but scares the crap out of me.

    Healing process differs for everyone. But 1.5mm and 2mm/1x week is a hard regimen imo. And don't be scared about shock loss, that will come back as far as I know. Check out the healing chart:
    1920px-wound_healing_phases-png-png.png

    I'm doing 2mm/x1.5-2 weeks. I believe you need to give your dermis the time to heal. I still feel stinging after 4-5 days after needling when I'm brushing my hair/scalp.

    @Capone We need a list of alternatives for minoxidil.

    A 1.5 mm dermaroller... moderate pressure 1x weekly and there has been a couple times I lightly rolled a few days after. Also minoxidil with sandalore but my gut tells me the rolling is main catalyst.

    I am doing 2mm dermastamp once a week. It really hurts like a b**ch every time. I've done 3 seasons so far. I'm using rosemary oil and taurine mixed in water as my topical every day except on the needling day. I apply castor oil almost immediately after I needle. I'll update in case I get some positive result. It's still very soon though. I'm also taking sulfasalazine, a multivitamin & a vitamin E supplement.

    3rd session in a row in which my lymph nodes have enlarged. First 9 months or so, I wasn't getting enlarged lymph nodes.

    Given your level of hair loss that's a great result. You ought to continue and see where you are 8 - 10 months from now.

    Anyone experiencing blurred vision?

    I have been using Minoxidil from last 8-9 months. I didn't have any improvement and my balding got wrose earlier and I was not using regularly earlier. But from Dec 2018, I started derma rolling and using the Minoxidil regularly twice every day. From past few weeks, I have been experiencing blurred visition. Initially, I thought that I am expericing eye sight due to age (39+). But today, after using the Minoxidil, I immediatly noticed effect. I just Googled to find out if its anything to do with Minoxdil and found this - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5028441/

    I don't want to stop the Minoxidil. I am noticing improvement with derma rolling and the Monixidil. Please suggest alternatives.

    That's scary, man. Remind me how often do you needle. Once a week or every two weeks?

    Today I will have my 24th session of solely microneedling, so that's six months like in the study. There has been no noticeable results and my hair has continued to thin and shed. In my opinion minoxidil is crucial for regrowth...should I keep needling?
