Interesting new article. Here's one paragraph about dermarolling (that's all there was on that topic).

A 12-week study was conducted to compare weekly microneedling in conjunction with minoxidil 5% solution with minoxidil 5% solution alone. Minoxidil was applied twice daily in both cohorts of 50 men each. In the microneedling group, minoxidil was applied 24 hours after the microneedling session since the session produced mild erythema in the area in which it was performed. One of the study endpoints was hair count in a predefined, 1 cm–diameter area at the end of 12 weeks. Patients in the treatment group showed a hair count of 91.4 hairs per cm2 compared with 22.2 hairs per cm2 in the control group (P = .039). Patients reported no adverse effects, and results were sustained for 8 months following treatment.

Here's the final result, not so long lasting

Results were sustained 8 months after treatment"
