Are the results permanent... if I were to level out a shallow scar, it won't sink back in if I stop rolling?

I had to look it up too when I first read this article. I have some grade 3 and 4 scarring and dermarolling has worked on them. I still have some to get rid of but I've definitely seen improvement. I took this from a website:

Grade 1 scarring: Is mostly pigment-based. Ordinary scars from cuts to your skin appear white – in grade 1 acne scarring the lesions are also white or hypo-pigmented.

Grade 2 scarring: Grade 2 scarring is defined as being visible at distances of less than 50cm, and able to be covered by makeup. Of course, not everyone is happy with needing lifelong cosmetics to ‘look normal’, and for many people cosmetic use causes breakouts – so laser acne treatment is a real possibility at this stage.

Grade 3 scarring: Grade 3 scarring is not easily covered by cosmetics, and is visible from more than 50cm away. When we talk about rolling scars, shallow boxcar scars and hypertrophic scars later on, remember that those scars will often fit into grade 3.

Grade 4 scarring: Is also difficult to cover and seen at distances greater than 50cm away, but cannot be flattened by stretching the skin. Icepick scars, deep divots, keloid scarring and sever boxcar scars fit into this category . These may need a combination of laser acne scar treatment and dermal fillers to improve their appearance

Thanks. I had never heard of this acne scar grading scale. Where did you get your information from?

Can I ask about how people have very complicated rolling regimens like taking all these vitamins and minerals (vitamin A, C, zinc), use of topicals (retin A, vitamin A, C, copper peptides) and LED light therapy, are these to speed up the results or does it actually bring the results? i.e. plain rolling does nothing?
I only roll and apply vitamin E oil, my scars doesn't bother me that much so I just want to keep it simple. But at the same time I want to see results over periods of time. Am I doing it for no reason if I don't follow all the complicated regimens?

Haven't used this website in a while as my acne **appears** to be under control and scarring is much much more manageable...so here is a pay it forward tip that occured to me...
For anyone who is concerned about infection and rolls regularly (every six weeks or so), you may consider using colloidal silver beginning several days before the roll and a day or so after...I also soak my rollers in barbicide and swab the area I'm rolling with tea tree oil prior and after rolling.
Hope that helps someone!

Hey guys, I have made a topic about this, but maybe i can find the answer here :)

I've had fat transfer about 4 years ago. I've never been happy about the reaults bacause they weren not that dramatic.
My question is: can i use the dermaroller/stamp on the areas where the fat transfer is done?

I have done a ton of researching the past few days, but I cannot seem to find a reasonable answer to my question.

 

How the heck are you supposed to numb if you're in the US???

 

Lidocaine (EMLA) is prescription only, and I'm not willing to get it shipped internationally (I'm a goody two shoes, whatever).

I also don't really want to use ice, because I feel it won't be effective enough.

 

What do you all do? I could go to my derm and ask for a prescription, but I feel like he won't do that because 1) he'll want me to pay him for treatments and 2) I am inflicting my own pain so why the heck should he prescribe something to help.

 

Thanks in advance.

hi guys, i would really appreciate your opinion about my dermaroller procedures.

 

i've already had 2 treatments with 1.5mm done by my dermatologist - in november and january... everthing went great, i really saw improvement - my cheeks were smoother, some of my scars almost completely disappeared and i couldn't be more happy...

 

BUT now after my 3rd treatment last week obivously something went wrong. this time she roller with 2.0mm and everything seemed ok until my redness went away and i noticed that my scars actually got worse as they've been before i started the treatment. where the skin was smooth before, the old scars reappeared again and they look more deep as they've ever been.

 

do you have any idea how is this possible? is it because of 2.0mm and the bigger injury to the skin? has anyone else experienced something like that? i tried to ask my doctor but she is on holidays now-
