I have been on fin for 9 months and haven’t noticed any regrowth so I decided to add 1mm derma stamping about a month ago. Still haven’t seen anything. Are fin and micro-needling known to be successful together or is it just min and micro-needling that go well together? I really don’t want to start min cause I don’t want to have to apply it every day and I’m deathly scared of the initial shed. Any advice is appreciated!
The needles must go down at least 1 mm to get the stimulus from the microneedling as that is where the critical stem cells are located. They don’t have to go deeper than that. You should add minoxidil to the skin immediately before using microneedling. That, according to the literature I read, gives the best results. To deal with the pain, you can use a topical anesthetic from the pharmacy, leave it on for at least 15 minutes before using the microneedling and it should reduce the pain of the needles going through the skin.
