Hi, been doing the procedure for a while. Now that we’re getting closer to the summer, I’ve been thinking about sun exposure after microneedling.
I read in a post here that it should be avoided during 4 days after the procedure, but I’d like to know what the consensus is.

I was even considering stopping the treatment altogether just because of that, as sometimes I want to be outside without a hat and couldn’t because my skin was still slightly red

Another great result:

fina, minoxidil + needling, results after only 4 months. Took just as long as numberguy (guy from page 1) to see results.

He used 8 month minoxidil and 4 month finasteride.

( he told me that in the comments.)

but its still the quick gains from minoxidil that tends to leave after 1-2 years

wow these are damn impressive results! if i could achieve this il be tap dancing :)

i use a dr pen m8 wireless changing needle set every 2 sessions, 16 pin once per week, i see alot of new hairs but only 4 weeks now.

i cant see why the wired derminator is any better, after all its your application and perforation thats important? This guy above says he just uses a ORA derma roller which i thought rollers weren't as good as vertical stamping style techniques approved by microneedling professionals.... it should then come down the quality of the needles and application technique surely?

i have tried to read this thread but 707 pages :eek: so forgive me if i missed this

can you explain what you mean by leaving after 1-2 years?

It's a meme that minoxidil gains are temporary. Sure, for someone not on finasteride that may be true however even then there are plenty of examples of men keeping their minoxidil gains over a long time.

I think I'm going back to 1.5 once a week, felt like I was getting better results. When I was doing 1.5 years ago, I was getting result with minoxidil and I didn't even put it on my head, just my beard.

I'm a diffuse thinner and I feel like I need to use significantly higher doses of minoxidil than recommended for the minoxidil to cover all thinning areas - is this overkill? Will thinning areas not exposed to minoxidil still gain effect if nearby areas get some minoxidil?

Looking back I definitely had better results doing 2mm once a fortnight and daily 0.5mm quick rolling (using a manual derma roller) prior to minoxidil application.
The pens are great for the heavy session but the manual roller is where it's at. Leave it on your dresser, do a few quick rolls on temples and crown straight out the shower, brushing teeth with the other hand.

Hello I have problems with the dermapen I am afraid it is broken ... once I put the needle ... I turn on the device but I only feel a vibration but the needle remains still ... it does not go up or down ... but is it normal? thank you

The cartridge may not be inserted correctly try to reinsert it and see if the problem remains. Also some people had to record a slo-mo video to see that the needles really moved.
BTW what pen did you get?

Remove the needle cartridge and turn the pen on so that it starts moving at a low speed. Then insert the cartridge while it’s moving and the the needles will start to move. Mine gets stuck once in a while and that fixes it for me. I think it has to do with the pen not being charged enough although I keep it plugged into the wall.

I just had an appointment with my GP, who I had not seen in real life for a year. She told me that my hair has spectacularly improved! She said she noticed it immediately when I walked through the door. :) :) :):):)
