What's the best method of cleaning and disinfecting? A roller seems like an awkward thing to clean.

Does it matter which solution is used to store harvested grafts for during HT?
Hi, I am 36 years old male and going for HT in March, my Dr in London just confirmed me he uses Chilled Saline solution to store harvested grafts while he is doing the incision. Please can you advise how effective is the saline solution for this purpose? Is there a huge difference in yield when compared saline with other solutions to store the grafts?
Last thing, is it better to spray ATP after the HT? this see lot of doctors on different forms suggesting that, but by doctor do not provide ATP after HT.

Thank you so much for sharing your success with your current treatment.
I would just like to know your reasoning for using 0,3mm roller on everyother day (Or was it twice a week?)
and u used a 1mm 540 needle derma roller instead of a 1,5mm 192 needle roller as in the study.
Any particular reason why?

I would love it if you posted an update in May 2017, just to really prove fred970 wrong!

I will start dermarolling this week. Seems to work fine for some. Is your scalp red after rolling? If so, how long is it red?

Assuming you are talking to me, then I can't answer, because I have not even started microneedling yet.

Six to twelve months is long, but looking at how long it took PrettyFly86 to go from a slick NW5a/NW6 to having some hair, I'm not going to hold my breath. But I am still pretty optimistic about potential results in 12 months time.

By applying the Derma Pan yourself (assuming you are) do you feel you will be able to apply it properly to get uniform coverage? The Roller can be done almost being blindfolded.

I certainly hope I would get uniform coverage.

So, pragmatically, if I really did want my hair back, I should settle for something tried and tested, therefore I should be using a dermaroller instead of a dermapen.
However, it is believed that the reason why dermarolling works is because it damages the skin just enough for the wounding mechanism to promote hair growth (such as Wnt signaling to promote hair growth, the synthesis of pge2, etc.). But because this is a hypothesis, falsification is needed, and the only way to falsify is to actually experiment.
As an added bonus, I'll experiment without the use of Minoxidil, so that we can confirm it's indeed wounding+minoxidil that is doing the hard work, and not just wounding.
So I'll act as the guinea pig so that none of you would have to waste time. However, as a guy with thinning hair, I really hope the hypothesis is correct; I want my hair back after all, especially in a low-pain/pain-free manner. A dermapen is believed to be less painful than a dermaroller.
