Has this regime worked for you at all? I'm thinking of adding 0.5% Sandalore mixed into Garnier Stemoxydine along with my RU. I already use minoxidil foam and have been microneedling for over a year - really hoping I might get as good results as James did by adding the Sandalore.

Yes I think so, I posted some pics a couple pages back. It's all still trial & error. though until I see evidence of something better I'll continue to follow it

I will continue to follow @Jamesdunn 's regimen , the pioneer on these forums for top tier regrowth results

1.5mm Dermaroller once a week HARD (draw small amounts of blood) , with 0.5% Sandalore mixed into minoxidil
I've completely dropped microneedling. Ik sick of my scalp peeling every day and I was starting to lose ground. What I've noticed is sandalore was playing a big part in my regrowth but adding it to my minoxidil bottle was the wrong idea. After a few weeks the sandalore wouldn't be as effective maybe it was the ethanol over time making it ineffective. I've been making good progress lately mixing my sandlore with my minoxidil just before applying it. Will update a photo soon

Which sandalore are you using?

...I've been pretty lax with my dermarolling and minoxidil application. Can't remember the last time I used my dermaroller/pen and I fall asleep on the couch before I've put minoxidil in on a regular basis...

SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT DROPPING
I'm continuously blown away by you guys getting HRT-tier results on non-hormone-f**king treatments, just to then proceed dropping / changing your regimens:

I'd give my right arm to get gains remotely resembling your ballpark, and cut off the other one before even considering to skip a single session... XD

Hi guys, a question about the procedure. I have a Dr Pen A6, just started yesterday on 1.25mm, do you press hard on your scalp as you do it? Obviously it hurts more and goes further in, but I wonder if the 1.25mm setting means that just by placing it normally on your head it’s 1.25mm or you have to press it down hard for it to be 1.25mm.

hopefully that wasn’t too confusing and wordy. Any help would be appreciated

I used to just sort of let it glide over my scalp when was using a pen, it tended to get stuck if i applied a lot of pressure. I haven't really needled in a while but im just using a roller these days

Yep I made the decision to drop needling as my crown was starting to thin again. First picture below is with needling every week and 2nd pic is no needling but mixing 1% of sandalore to 1ml of minoxidil. Gaining ground back slowly

I microneedeld with 0.8 mm 26 hours ago and I still can't even touch my head, because it hurts to much. How do you want to needle with 2 mm every 2 days?
Yeah. I am trying with 1.5 with a D2 when the redness goes away, which is looking like every 6 days or so. But it does hurt. Does anyone use a numbing cream?

I have used a numbing cream but the issue is that it gets stuck inside the D2 heads, so you end up cleaning it off anyways. Just take a Tylenol and go watch a show while you're doing it - the distraction will make you feel the pain a bit less.

Ever since covid-19, I have been unable to cut my hair, so I'm not sure if I've made any progress. My hair is huge now and if I take a picture it would look like I have completely regrown all my hair back, which isn't the case.

I'm not sure the Follica protocol is giving me much results. Maybe this is as much regrowth as I'm going to see.

Ordered a Dr Pen yesterday. I'm excited to give this a shot. I have already had one transplant, and will likely need more, so the less grafts needed for a future transplant, the better.

This thread definitely shows not too stop the needling once you get results lol. Looks like it's a lifetime thing.

So i Have 2 dermaneedling questions"

-Will using a numbing cream impact my results? I just did my first round with Dr Pen and it hurt way more than I anticipated. I did horizontal, then vertical, and skipped the diagonals. If it's "no pain, no gain" I'll push through, but that was not pleasant at all.

-Can I just put the whole 12 needle attachment in some disinfectant (plastic and all), or do I just wash the needles with it? I poured the alcohol over the needles a few times, but there is still some stuff on it.

Sorry do you mean you're mixing 10mg Sandalore powder into 1ml minoxidil?

I tried searching on the forum but was unsuccessful so dropping the query here. Has anyone tried topical dutasteride mixed with minoxidil? Or even topical fina in that case?

Short hair, January 7, longhair May 1. I know they're completely different but I haven't been able to cut my hair since the shop is closed lol. I did a 2 hour session last night using the Follica protocol.
