    The crown is doing very well. My hair around it is pretty thick and the crown is not as thick as the rest yet, so you can still see that there is some thinning there. That gap is closing quickly though, especially as I can grow it out a bit longer.

    I roll at 1.75mm on fastest speed setting, latest one was with 30 needle Dr Pen A6. I get a little pain but nothing I can't handle. Mostly redness with some blood on the front.

    I roll immediately after showering and apply minoxidil immediately after rolling

    I live in Canada! The cold white north. We are balding brothers of the Commonwealth!

    I actually purchased this cheaper pen from TBPHP that a few other folks on this forum use:
    Though the Dr. Pen seems to be the more well known brand ... although that comes with a higher price tag too.

    Hey guys,
    I did my second session with the derminator 2 today. I was wondering if this level of wounding is good? https://imgur.com/7L7ogTl

    @Necr0sis - looks fine to me. I don't get that many pin pricks typically though usually they occur for me at the hairline if they do. Are you doing just your hairline or more of your scalp?

    For you guys with the dermapen, how often do you go over the same area? I have the a6 and go 1.5mm at about the 4th fastest setting.

    Presently, I press and lift vertically over my crown for about 5 "columns", and then do it horizontally as well over the same area. Then I go through twice across my hairline, and after that my scalp feels pretty intense, but I'm not sure if I should do it more than that.

    Ain't gonna lie, it's always a bit painful. Numbing cream helps a bit. I just wouldn't want to be stuck having 1 source to buy tips with the derminator

    How is everyone cleaning the dead skin cells and residue from minoxidil? I am using the nivoral shampoo twice to three times a week and bioton shampoo. I have a buzz cut and realize lots of dead cells/residue even after shower. I been using cotton balls and isopropyl to clean my scalp. Wondering if anyone have better ways.

    Anyone dealing with scalp itch? I dermaroll lightly daily (following @chen 's regimen) and my scalp is itching like hell. What can I do to reduce the itch?

    I have noticed that when I brush my hair, very few hairs fall out, maybe five at most when previously it would have been five times that.

    I don't brush my hair but even I am noticing significantly reduced hairfall after I started daily massages and dermarolling. Don't want to jinx it. Fingers crossed. Hope the best for you brother.

    A few people have seen results here from needling alone + massages. Do you do massages manually, or with a device?

    I have been on finasteride and min for 3 years with no results. After seeing some posts about massages and microneedling I started both. Initially I used to massage using my hands but that really hurt my fingers so I started using an extremely old electric massager lying around in my house. Something like this but very old -> https://www.amazon.com/Back-Massage...body massager&qid=1553175394&s=gateway&sr=8-4
    I massage 5 mins with the comb attachment and 5 mins with the "nipple" attachment xD

    Nice results there, could you tell us how long you have been on finasteride for? did you start this around the same time as the needling?

    Love your updates. They not only are one of the best seen so far, but the best documented one.

    Looking forward to seeing your 4th month update. At this rate you'll be a thick NW1 at the 5th month mark

    @paul1988 - Thanks! That top down angle is great to see the crown progress. It is a bit deceiving though to judge density. My crown hair is certainly growing again and growing longer which is good. Overall density is still pretty thin though which is difficult to tell from that angle.

    I'll try to put together a front comparison again as well, or some from different angles if I can piece together some similar photos. My temples are fairly receded and there isn't much progress there. I did have some stray hairs pop up out of nowhere at the hairline initially, but not much action since.

    Amazing results, congrats! Doesn’t look like you experienced a shed in the first couple of months either? Or did you get one?

    @cvcsticks - It doesn't appear that way from the photos, but I did start finasteride/minoxidil a week and a bit prior to starting needling. It felt like it continued to thin for the first month, but then the photos show otherwise. I didn't take a baseline photo when starting the finasteride/minoxidil though, but that was only a week'ish prior needling.
