    Can be helpful, but you never know if it works for you until you try it. A derma stamp or pen is usually safer than a roller. Overall try to reduce stress in your life as well and kick unhealthy habits.

    For what? Hair regrowth? Acne scarring? Dull skin? Dermarollers are used for a number of cosmetic aims.
    For hair regrowth, I haven’t seen any good evidence that it’s worth the commitment and adds anything to fin+min+keto. (There’s some so-so evidence that microneedling adds to min monotherapy.) If it were simply another tablet to down without solid evidence of benefit (such as biotin tablets for people who aren’t deficient), that would be one thing, but it’s an annoying pain in the ass to comply with microneedling – feels like a huge chore.

      there are studies showing the effectiveness when combined with other treatments, so it’s no different to fin or min. the main advantage is that it doesn’t have side effects like fin and min do. oral fin has a myriad of sexual side effects, although they are reversible when you drop the fin, while oral min can heck you up permanently as a side effect. topical min usually has less side effects, and studies seem to suggest that topical min benefits from microneedling.
      if you already chuck boner- and heart-killing pills, why not pierce your scalp a little?

        Gary Linkov did a deep-dive video on all the microneedling research, and apparently microneedling doesn’t increase hair density but rather slightly speeds up the thickening of vellus hair (from minox) that’s going to thicken anyway.

        already had a healthy active clean lifestyle prior to these circumstances. my only fault is a late diagnosis mostly due to gp not catching on or ordering more comphrehensive blood tests sooner (shouldve had an asian gp rather than indian). now its a matter of waiting for healthy cells destroyed by the drugs to regenerate + recovery from a surgery that will leave me with a nasty stomach scar, hopefully i can pull off the battle hardened warrior look otherwise my gym aesthetic goals are over.
