The BEST Microneedling Derma Pen for Hair Loss

The micro needling device picture above is the one I have been using recently. This is the HAIRLICIOUSLY Dr. Pen Ultima A6 and I have been using it for the past couple weeks and is probably THE best and highly recommended microneedling device in the market. Many people have been using it and have had great success for hair growth. It comes with 5 speed controls which are adjustable from 8,000 RPM to 18,000 RPM oscillations and has an upgraded metal motor to efficiently move the needles vertically, and the best thing about this is that it is wireless.

The previous MYM micro needling device I was using was not wireless so it was a hassle when I had to connect it every time to use, but this one makes it so much easier since you can use it wireless as it is battery operated and can last up to 8 hours when it is fully charged. The MyM also had slower RPMs (maxes around 10,000) than the A6, so the A6 results in a pain-free experience since the needles are moving at a much faster rate, also creating more micro tears to regenerate collagen. However, the MYM is still a GREAT microneedling device is a great tool for those on a budget. 

The new advanced Dr Pen Ultima A6 comes with 2 batteries and if you want, you can also plug it in and use it with a wire. Needle length ranges from 0.25mm to 2.5mm so it’s more than enough since 1.5mm is preferred when micro needling to promote hair growth. The design is also much more sleek and compact and easier to maneuver compared to this one, where it is much more bulky, and you can even apply it on the face for wrinkle treatment, acne scars, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation as it is proven to improve the appearance of scars. The casing is also metal and more durable than the plastic one and has a much more luxury feel to it, and is overall made using high quality parts instead of plastic and you can tell from the way it looks. It comes with 10 needle cartridges and the nice thing about this micro needling device is that the dial for adjusting the needle depth is far more precise and accurate, as it comes with an anti-skid design of adjustment for the ring and is much more tighter. 

The needle cartridges are bayonet styled and are gas sterilized and the one I have been using is the 36 needle pin cartridge since it is more effective in creating tiny micro tears on the scalp. Let me do a quick demonstration. Make sure to wash your scalp prior to using to get all the dirt and debris out of the scalp. Set the needle at 1.5mm and then you want to start off at a lower speed setting of 1 and see how it feels, and you can work your way up to a higher speed since it reduces the pain. The idea is to create redness on the skin’s surface and apply constant pressure.

I like going in a circular motion per area. The nice thing about the A6 is that the needles operate a lot smoother than the previous device I was using. So, If you see blood, that is okay too. If you want to incorporate minoxidil, make sure to do so at least 12-24 hours after treatment to avoid it going systemic which can cause unwanted side effects. I normally micro needle about twice a week. You can reuse the needle cartridge by disinfecting it with 70% isopropyl alcohol and letting it air dry, but I do recommend changing it out as often as possible to reduce your chances of infection. As long as you disinfect it and the needles aren’t dull, you should be okay but the manufacturer recommends you replace it after 4-6 times of use. 

If you guys want to start with a cheaper alternative instead of the A6 dr pen, you can start with a manual derma roller. I have upgraded the derma rollers that I sell to titanium needles because they are much more durable than steel, resulting in needles that won’t dull as quickly. These are 192 single titanium needles and are designed to create micro injuries to stimulate collagen and stem cells containing hair growth factors. The titanium derma rollers are up for sale and in limited quantity, so make sure to grab yours.

A word of caution, please don’t use a derma roller or microneedling device if you have diabetes, hemophilia, or other conditions that can inhibit healing, or if you are on blood thinners or similar medications. Please speak to a doctor before usage.

If you guys have any questions on how to use the derma roller or the micro needling device, please make sure to reach out to me and I would be more than happy to assist you. If you had good results in terms of hair growth, I really want to hear your story and see before/after photos so please make sure to comment or email me to share with the rest of us.


  • You should not re-use the needles! The manufacturer makes it very clear that they are one-use only. Dermarollers can be cleaned and sanitized, but not the bayonet needles on the Dermapen and similar devices.

  • what if I want to use 42 pin?

  • I recently purchased the A6 pen after watching a few of your YouTube videos. I am considering transplants, but I want to see if this works for me. I recently stopped taking Finasteride 1mg from a telehealth service because it was not working, and hasn’t been for quite some time. My plan is to do 2x weekly microneedling sessions with 3x weekly scalp massage. I made a scalp oil out of argan oil, peppermint oil, and verbenone rosemary oil. I also switched to a well known, natural anti-hair loss shampoo and am now taking a hair loss multivitamin supplement. I am trying this the natural way before resorting to surgery. I have had microneedling facials in the past and I feel silly now for not just purchasing the pen, which is FAR more economical. The professionals I went to used the A6 pen as well, and I had fantastic results on my face, so I am hopeful for excellent results at my hairline. Thanks for all the great info!

  • if after using derma pen, can I apply coconut oil on mane hair? thank you.

  • Been using minoxidil for a few month now , really want to try dermaroller or pen, I have thinning hair and slightly receding, which would you suggest, many thanks
