I read that earlier, made me laugh.
Something about the guys on the Belgian forum are calling it a scam.
"OK, I think it's time to settle this once and for all for anyone who still had doubts about it since the first Indian dermarolling study came out in 2013.
Dermarolling for hair loss basically doesn't do shit.
"Something I've noticed and that is not specific to dermarolling in the world of hair loss is that people who start it all over the place never come back to tell us that it did jack shit for them. And all you've left with are that handful of shady cases where the guy was also taking finasteride and drinking gallons of minoxidil. And the fact that Somebody and a couple of other people are the only ones benefiting from this treatment is not normal. Some of them if not all of them tricked the general public, had a hair transplant and then tried to make money starting a BS hair loss YouTube channel.
"I guess @That Guy never had any visible results with his dermarolling experiment either otherwise he'd be telling us here. So yeah, I'd just say, don't bother. As shookwun said on HairlossTalk, they tricked us with different angles, lightning and hair lengths in the studies. Hope really is a dangerous thing when it comes to male pattern baldness, I knew something was up based on the lack of before/after on the whole internet while it's now been 5 years that dermarolling sort of went mainstream in the hair loss community."
Most of these are statements of fact. I do not blame anyone who read this post and concluded that it had been dismissed as a scam, especially when @admin is accusing people with positive results of "tricking" everyone else in some way.
I'm new to all of this so I don't really get why there seems to be rivalry between different forums, when everyone on them is wanting the same thing.
Maybe some people regrow hair and don't bother coming back online to report it because, well, they've got hair and now have other things to worry about. There's also the distinct possibility that anyone who does come back with positive results will be dismissed as a scammer, like I was.
I'm sure it doesn't work for everyone but I've had amazing results and have now posted more before and after photos than I've ever seen anyone else post, regardless of treatment. Whether or not other people grow hair is of no concern to me, really, but I have done my best to help. If somebody finds a treatment that works for them and tries to make money from it then good on them, I say.
