"A study is a good indicator".According to that Indian study that is true. Most people that did the needling treatment had descent results.
But browsing this thread and talking with some users I got the feeling that in reality the opposite happened and most people weren't getting the results the study showed unfortunately. A study is a good indicator but not the final word on something, and it's not uncommon for them to have replication problems for a variety of reasons.
Talking about anecdotal evidence, in the last two pages of this thread there are two confirmed dudes that tried needling and got virtually no results."A study is a good indicator".
It's not just one study. There's multiple, all from independent research groups. So there's multiple studies confirming it's efficacy, and this thread which contains anecdotal evidence supporting the treatment, and then also other websites like reddit where people share results too. Scientific evidence + anecdotal evidence = not good enough for you? That is some hardcore atheism, don't forget to pick up your fedora on the way out.
Same with me. I use 1mm and at the highest speed setting of my dermapen. Skin is sore for a couple of days and from what I've read you need to give your skin enough time to heal.Isn’t every night a bit too much? I am using 1mm, but even so my scalp is still very sore for a couple of days afterwards.
I've been using a Derminator 2 for close to two years with little to no results and am considering buying a Dr Pen for the higher speed as per the follica method...anyone think this would be worth a try?
Thanks Pegasus! I was actually going to flick you a PM to get your opinion on this. Which speed setting would be closest to the Follica method? (Dr Pen website says A7 can operate 8,000 - 15,000 RPM.)Sure, give it a shot a let us know how it goes. I'm thinking of doing it myself since I hate spending 30 minutes needling.
7,200 rpm for 5 minutes with a 12 needle cartridge. Is 8k really 8k though? It's hard to test that.Thanks Pegasus! I was actually going to flick you a PM to get your opinion on this. Which speed setting would be closest to the Follica method? (Dr Pen website says A7 can operate 8,000 - 15,000 RPM.)
I'll be sure to let people know here if it works
