And one of the best results this forum's ever seen came from microneedling alone. Albeit extreme.
Furthermore, the reason this thread started is someone who didn't respond to Minoxidil until he started needling. So not responding to Minoxidil alone isn't necessarily a bad sign.
This is the most important point. Both the Indian study and the Chinese study had blind sorting of patients and yet patients showed the best improvement in the microneedling+minoxidil group.
Blind sorting is important because you do not want best responders ending up in the microneedling+minoxidil group. This skews the data.
