Does anyone still do it?

I have used both the roller and the dermapen, but I have heard that both of those cause extreme micro tears in the skin which is not good in the long run.

I was wondering if anyone has tried or has experience with the Derminator, which is supposed to be digital microneedling without the tears. It's a hefty investment but it could pay off especially at the hairline and even acne scars, etc.

Tried it for a couple of weeks then stopped. It really does work opening the skin since it was obvious to me that the minoxidil was getting absorbed better into the body. I haven't seen too many positive responses from people on the forums, only in studies, which I assume are honest but you never can tell anymore.

Dermarolling will not grow your hair back. However, needling does have a positive effect on skin and inflammation when done correctly. I have been using a roller for years. Typically just a couple of times a month and particularly when I feel the "itch" from inflammation kicking in.
