    My esthetician would take mine out! I used to squeeze them so I scarred my skin but once I started going to her, I didn't scar anymore.

    Put neosporin on it and don't be touching or poking at it. It'll scar. Just leave it alone and keep it clean.

    Don't needle the nose!!! The skin in that area is very sensitive and doesn't heal like the rest of the skin so more prone to scaring! Be careful!

    If you want results from needling, you need to get a 1.5 mm. The 1mm needles are too short and are only good for product penetration and very very shallow scaring. Yours are deeper so you need 1.5 or higher (I do not recommend 2mm or higher unless a professional is doing it). If your scars are tethered, rolling won't help. I know because it did nothing for my tethered scars but got rid of the untethered ones (after about a year or so of rolling-it's a long, long long process but totally worth it).

  5. Dermarolling Girl added a post in a topic Subcision Expectations   

    Lookup Mr. Matt (on this site). He has had great success with subcision and you can learn a lot from his posts. His results are AMAZING. From what I understand, he had 3 or 4 rounds of subcision. The first few rounds didn't work (or there wasn't much progress) until the final round when he had subcision + suctioning (which he did on his own).

    I'm not too familiar with subcision (just started studying it) but the reason for doing it is to break up the fibers that are holding down the skin. This happens (skin is held down) when the scar is tethered. If it's not tethered, then there's no point in doing subcision (PLEASE correct me if I am wrong). Also, Mr. Matt doesn't think fillers are a good idea. I don't remember why...I think he said you can see the indents or something.

    If you stretch your skin and scars disappear, then they aren't tethered. If scars are still visible when you stretch your skin, scars are tethered.

    Thank you for responding! I actually have small scars but they are in a line and form a linear scar in my smile line. I'll give it a try and it doesn't work I'll get the one from Owndoc. I think it's only $13!

    Using Pmd For Suctioning
    I just read somewhere (online) that someone uses the PMD to suction his skin after he uses the dermastamp. He doesn't put the discs on it and places the PMD on his skin for a bit. Has anybody done this with the PMD? I have one and would like to give it a try but I'm a little nervous. I'm wondering if it would be too strong to use...this other person said he had no problem with it and that it works great.

  8. Dermarolling Girl added a post in a topic Dermastamp Vs. Dermal Filler   

    Try the dermastamp first (you can find them really cheap online) and if it doesn't work go for the fillers. I honestly wouldn't do fillers. They only work for a little while then you have to get more. I have dermarolled in the past and it helped most of my scars but not all. I think the ones that stuck behind are tethered so I am thinking of adding suctioning to help release the tethered scars. I am not familiar with suctioning so can't say much about it.

    In case you don't know (I didn't when I first heard of tethered scars), if you stretch your skin and the scars don't disappear that means they are tethered. In order to get rid of tethered scars, the fibers that are holding the scar down need to be broken. You do that by subcision (I wouldn't do it myself but people do single needling to break those fibers) or suction (or so I"ve heard...not sure if it really works) If scars disappear when your skin is stretched, then they aren't tethered and you'll be able to improve the scars.

    I've never had an issue with dermarolling. never broke out from that but that's just me. My skin is different than yours. I used to get cystic acne too but I haven't gotten anymore since I had my baby 7 months ago. I also stopped drinking milk so that may have been my trigger. Never had fillers so don't know if they would cause you to break out.

    Thanks for the responses! NomNomWaffles, I did what you said and it's working! Most of it is gone, thank goodness!

    Factoid, I did frost but it was just around my nose and inbetween my eyes. I got scared and washed it off. I probably could have done another 2 layers but I wanted to start slow since that was my first time.

    Will exfoliating it leave red marks? I peeled a little section off and that spot stayed red. My whole face is covered in rough skin so don't want all of it to stay red. I may not to a TCA again. I think I'm sticking with glycolic acid peels!

    Just in the area between my eyes and near my nose but it was a very small area. My skin looks very old and crepey right now and it feels awful. And itchy!

    Did A Tca Peel But Not Peeling! What Do I Do?
    My skin is really rough and tight but it won't peel. It's been 7 days since I did the peel (12%). I've steamed it. No peeling. didn't moisturize one day just to see if that would cause it to start peel but it didn't work. Not sure what else to do but it's driving me crazy. I hate the way it feels. Any advice on what else I can do to get this thing to peel?

  13. Dermarolling Girl added a post in a topic Microdermabrasion Vs Kitchen Peels   

    I've never used that brand but have used store bought but it didn't help at all. Never used kitchen peels. You can buy some really good stuff to help with redness on makeup artist choice and it's cheap! I use a glycolic acid peel (30%) that works really well. I think I paid $12 for a sample size (good for several peels..have already done 3 and still have a full bottle). There's no downtown with this peel.
    Honestly, I'd never spend $45 bucks on a cream based microdermabrasion kit. I have, however, spent an arm and leg getting professional micro treatments. $120 per but it also includes a facial. It took 3 professional treatments to clear up redness. I have also gotten professional peels for 120 and that worked amazing but it worked just as well as the Makeup Artist peels I've been giving myself.
    Soooo, what I am trying to say is that you threw your money away...we've all done it at least once. I know I have!
    Good Luck and hope it works. Maybe it's a great product and if it does work you won't feel so guilty.

  14. Dermarolling Girl added a post in a topic Tons Of Scars On Face, Any Ideas What To Do?   

    This is something I just found out so maybe someone can elaborate but from what I understand if your scars are tethered down then they will not respond to dermarolling. I haven't researched it yet (just found this out like a few minutes ago). I have no idea how to figure out if scars are tethered or not. I have been dermarolling for years and it helped with some of my scars but not all. I am assuming maybe it's because some are tethered. I hear individual needling helps or subcision. They go in there with a needle and loosen up the tethered scars. Wish I could offer more but this is all I've got for now. Good Luck!

  15. Dermarolling Girl added a post in a topic Has Anyone Tried Doing A Micro Needling Peel? Just Found This On This Site...what Do You Think?   

    No way! I'm scared but it sounds interesting. I just did my first TCA peel (12.5%) on Wed. My skin is leathery but no peeling so far. I am going to take the safe route and alternate between peels and rolling. I was just wondering if anybody has done this and what the results were. It does seem like too many peels in one month.
