Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the "skin disruptor" just a derma stamp?

So what is this approach...It sounds like you are punching medication into your scalp skin almost like dermarolling or something..?

It's a nice, professional looking website, I'll give them that. No information on clinical trials as far as I can tell though...

Regarding getting hair back on a scalp that has been cue-ball smooth for many years, I've heard a recent interview with Histogen's Gail Naughton in which it was stated that Histogen should be best for relatively recent balding ie. turning existing vellus hairs terminal - and that something like Follica would be a good way to create the new vellus hairs. So a Follica + Histogen approach may be fruitful for the highest norwoods.

What're everyone thoughts on the dermastamp (wounding theory?) Short of something very revolutionary, I had a terrible experience with micro needling. My hair became almost completely transparent on the right side where I use it. (I didn't press especially hard either). I've been on propecia for over a year with a transplant so everything was relatively stable till I introduced it.

No, it is not. Dermabrasion is a different procedure from dermastamping.

Sigh... the last two messages are a perfect example why forums are such a dangerous place.

I'm not too optimistic about this, as I don't think that Follica have completed any new clinical trials on humans.

Why? What do you take issue with?

I don't take issue with either user personally. But they are two completely opposite views, with really no evidence to support the claims

Don't take either of our words for it. Just read up on the procedures. TL: DR Dermastamp makes lots of little holes, dermabrasion removes a layer of skin. There are also reasons why the distinction is important in the case of Follica, just do the research.

This company has been around since 2007, there is a lot of info out there that has been discussed. Granted 90% of that discussion has been worthless, but still.

I wondered what the Dermastamp is. A couple of questions regarding Follica: How deep does the Dermastamp go and does anyone have any idea what would be in their topical? Thanks!

It's not a dermastamp but dermabrasion. Look it up.
