Absolutely! Concerns of another 'recommended' surgeon's work (Bhatti) were also raised (not by me) on a number of threads after terrible results yet the members posting their results were attacked by recipients of the sponsorship funding.
Thought I’d create a separate thread from my HT thread to document my Microneedling progress, for those that might be interested.
So, I decided to get back on the microneedling train (used a dermaroller a few years ago not consistently, saw slight improvement but stopped after a few months), since I already hit the 1-year post HT mark, to see if I could improve density and growth in my midscalp and crown area where I received limited grafts.
This time around I decided to purchase and use a derma pen.
I started microneedling with the pen around Mid-May this year, once a week, needles set at 1.5mm, at night, didn’t shampoo hair for 24-hours just cold water. After about a month I decided to add Kirkland minoxidil 5% liquid 212-24 hours after a microneedling session but I hated the use and mess of the liquid so I switched to the Kirkland Minox Foam a few weeks ago.
I’ll try and post photos in progress date order.
After reading that, I'm now grateful that I chose a non-recommended surgeon (at least on here), but one based on the quality of output and how the surgeon works with his patients.
I think the idea of a website profiting off of incompetent surgeons, who are having enormously damaging effects on many people's lives, turns my stomach to the point of gastroseizure.
