  1. 👍🏻👍🏻 I plan to 🙂 I made a separate progress thread for my microneedling progress in the Open Topic section in case iyou have not seen it.
  2. Sure! Thanks for the kind words re my results, I’m sure you’ll pleased with yours in 12-18 months time. Ahh..yeah, I had a good shed of my native hairs the first couple of weeks of beginning my microneedling routine, I see it as a good thing as it’s a sign of newer better hairs ready to grow/sprout. I think you did the right thing in stopping the microneedling a month or so before your HT procedure, always good to let the scalp heal and err on the side of caution.
  3. Nice write-up, good on you for taking on this journey. I had similar hairline done to yours (yours is slightly lower than mine) and I think you’ll be pleased after the swelling and once the new growth starts, I actually wanted 5,500 grafts but Dr Koray thought it wasn’t needed at the time but for you i believe he made the right decision as I agree you will very likely loose the miniaturizing hairs in your midscalp and crown over time, on the plus side your hair micron number is great, 67! Nice! Best of luck with recovery and growth! Looking forward to your progress updates!
  4. Yes, Dr Bloxham & Feller have a great patient video example of slow maturing of one of their patients and i believe he improved dramatically up until the 24th month if I recall. Hmm, I stopped Finasteride 1month post op and I have not read that stopping Finasteride might slow maturation but it is a possibility since the new hairs are in their infancy and DHT/other hormones still might be attacking them. In my opinion and experience I believe over combing/shampooing/styling/blow drying the new growing transplanted hair befor 6-months may be detrimental because there is a chance of pulling out the new fine ht hairs before they thicken and gain strength and then you’d have to wait for a new follicle to grow again, which they will but I was just cautious with it...now they’re nice and strong and holding up great even with being microneedled. That said, I’m sure the clinic will take care if you if you’re not satisfied.
  5. Yeah, I see what you’re saying, and I agree, still more time for improvement, I actually saw new sprouts ht hairs even close to my 10th month in the frontal area, and maturation really improved for me about after my 12th month but I believe I am a fast grower so I wouldn’t call it a final result for you yet.
  6. Thought I’d also share that I have also been microneedling/minoxidil on my receded temple peeks/triangle the past few months and am seeing some nice early improvement given the fact that no grafts were placed in the areas. Photos are from April 2019 (10 months post-op) before this new routine and after from last week...Fom last week post hair shampoo, Right side before and now, then left side before and now.
  7. Nice progress update, Your progress is looking very good, and take it from me the crown did not get me to a content point until I hit my 13th month mark and I’m now at month 14 post op, although with added assistance from a new routine...so no reason to be disappointed or worried about the crown progress just yet. 😉
  8. Some nice improvement, hair looks much better styled even if it’s not dense in the front yet, I truly believe you’re a slow grower so hopefully more to come. Outdoor photos look good.👍🏻
  9. Looks great buddy, fibers look nicely blended in in the last photo outdoors.
  10. 2-months is still very early and it looks normal. As for the stubble that has not shed nor grown, from what I’ve read it’s nothing serious and the hairs are just dormant and when the new grafts start to grow new hairs they will push the stubble out, but have you contacted your Doctor and asked their opinion of the stubble?
  11. Progress looks really good for less than 6months time! And even better from your last photos from just a couple of weeks ago.
  12. Repair looks very good, considering what you had to go through emotionally and physically. Congrats!
  13. I’m not sure what this HT doc told you is true when It comes to microneedling as it’s been proven that microneedling stimulates and creates collagen to fade and help get rid of scars, so he may just be trying to dissuade people since his business is HT’s. Also, you would have to use needles like 4-5+mm to really create any visible scars IMO.
  14. I’ve seen this type stamp, i haven’t used one as I use an electric motorized pen that I stamp with but I agree it’s much better than a roller. Yes, I’ve been getting great results in my midscalp and crown and it’s almost my 3rd month, as friends and family members have been giving me compliments recently and surprised at how much better it looks. I’ve even grown back some hair on my receding temple peaks. No, never tried topical Finasteride as i couldn’t find a decent reasonably priced legit source. I think anything topical can go systemic if you microneedle deep enough where you draw blood but I haven’t had any negative side effects. I tried and used Minoxidil on and off for over 10 years and it didn’t do much, now, I’m conjunction with microneedling I believe it’s working. You can find my routine in my latest post in my microneedling progress thread:
