Hey munsoned, What cream do you add the B5 to? I guess you are ok with using it with CP's?
BTW, I did my first roll with the 1.5 mm today. My Emla cream ( I actually bought the generic) was delivered yesterday. I found that using both the Emla and the 1.5mm was alot more comfortable than using the 0.5mm alone with no numbing cream.
I don't think I was aggressive enough. I know this session was alot more effective then the 0.5s but I can see my skin coming back to a normal state within a 2 days. Also, maybe it's because I got use to the stanard size roller but I found the 3 line required more work in that not as much area was covered.
I may consider picking up one of the generic eBay standard 1.5mm to see how things go.
P.S. for anyone using the Emla cream, use a good amount, especially in the areas where you want to be more aggressive. Cover with the cling wrap/saran wrap and wait at least 45 minutes to 1 hour. I also found that you should hit one area aggressively at a time because if you try to go back, the numbing effect of the cream wears off.
really glad you posted this JA1.. thank you... I used the topical b5 with my home made vitamin c topical. I am not using the b5 topicaly anymore. just oraly. I stopped when I started my cp..
I am very glad to hear you have begun treatment with your 1.5mm..I will use emla next time.
i was not aggresive enough my first time either. It takes some getting used to. I was acually so upset at myself for doing such a wimpy first session I waited a week and did it again much better. But my 2nd time I did the best I have done it yet. I would imagine each time we will keep getting better..
you like the standard roller then. I used the cheap standard myself from ebay and just purchased a quality 3 row for my next treatment. thou its going to be smaller area's the 3 row hits and will most likely take longer and require more effort. I noticed its alittle difficult to evenly hit the skin with the standard. or atleast in my case it was. so I am going to try the 3 row next session and see what I think.
its a great thing theres several of us all doing this treatment. we can all share info and experiences ect.. and it makes things alot easier for us all and increases our chance for success..
well, time to just sit back and heal up and hope for the best..
