Wow those pictures are amazing Can you post a picture of your dermapen?@gymrat hi how are you!
So my personal experience dates back to 2008 when I first used dermaroller on my face to soften acne scars ( indentations as opposed to hyperpigmentation) I found the dermaroller not as superior as dermapen ( unsanitary even after disinfecting/ needles get damaged)
Dermapen was life changing. The disposable cartridges offer different needle length and speed setting.
My pitted scars are 90% improved. Now after having used this for many years I felt confident using this on both my mum and i's balding scalps. Doctors were charging thousands of pounds for something so simple. The science behind the procedure is stupidly simple too, create microwounds/channels in skin to promote collagen induction/follicle stimulation. To answer your question about topicals, for face I alternated between vitamin c and hyaluronic acid. For scalp- no topicals just straight needling on a freshly washed head and no washing of hair for 2/3 days after to let micro wounds heal and blood to coagulate etc
I shall insert a pic I have on my phone of my mums hair before and 4 weeks after, and shall get updated pics when I see her, and I must say recent pics are even more amazing!
