Minoxidil and Dermarolling before FUE HT

Recommended Posts

Is it okay to start dermarolling and applying minoxidil 3 months before FUE hair transplant surgery. 

Would dermarolling have a negative effect or make the FUE HT complicated ?

The jury is still out. Some surgeons say that aggressive dermarolling can cause some scarring, which could potentially hinder hair transplant growth. Of course, this is anecdotal, there isn't any solid evidence to back those claims up. I think it depends on the size of the dermaroller and how aggressive you're getting.
