In this study, researchers aimed to address the limitations of conventional therapies (finasteride and minoxidil) for hair growth, which have variable effectiveness. They investigated the potential of microneedling as an additional treatment to enhance results. Four men who had been on finasteride and minoxidil for years without significant improvement in hair growth, underwent microneedling treatment for 6 months alongside their ongoing therapy. Using standardized evaluation scales, the study found that microneedling led to new hair growth with a response of +2 to +3 on the 7-point evaluation scale. Patients' satisfaction was high, and the results were sustained over an 18-month follow-up period, suggesting that microneedling could be a valuable addition for those who do not respond well to traditional treatments.
