I've been reading this form a lot and have a question
I do not have acne, i hope none of you take offense to this
but my doctor prescribed me a steroid cream for my penis since it kept ripping , now the problem is that this caused the skin to become thin.

Does this derma roller heal the thin skin and bring my thick skin back? will it help even a little?
I've been suffering for 2 years now and its really depressing.

Any advice would be helpful, thanks


I've read it does thicken the skin, not sure though. I don't have the same problem.

I would use one with short needles like 0,5mm. And be really very gentle. Maybe use it only every other day, or once every three days. And definitely moisturize with something oily or a great cream afterwards. And also moisturize every day, like twice a day.

I have a scar on my wrist and I used 1,5mm, and I wasn't very gentle, not too rough. But I have really skinny wrists (and arms), thin skin, bony. And after a month or so, I noticed really tiny cracks, like little wrinkles, where I used it. It's getting better with time and moisturizing.


Was that question even real? What exactly did he mean by "it kept ripping"?

Anyway, using a dermaroller on your johnson is bad advice. It's very sensitive down there. If you get a tiny cut it hurts like a paper cut. If you use a roller you'll have tons of these little cuts that sting bad, even if using the smallest needle length, plus you won't see any improvements.



Oh, I thought he used some drugs cause of a problem with his johnson, and the drugs made the skin on his face thin. confused.gif Maybe not. redface.gif

So this dermaroller business looks all right and affordable enough. Needles are scary but .75mm is an acceptable starting point. The question is still where the hell to get one of these things? I thought Google searches would turn up numerous ones, but all the links are busted or are for reviews. Amazon doesn't have much selection, Ebay is a mess as usual...I'm not sure what to do. I bought some CP recently but I figure if it works better with rolling I might as well start rolling away.

*What is a reasonable length and price to be on the lookout for?


hey bro, you can use the .75mm one daily (but if you go too hard, you'll end up w/ lines all over your face and look like hellraiser). some people say it hurts, but really, it doesn't. it just kinda stings if you go along the forehead and jawline. nothing excruciating though.
ANYWAY...i got mine on ebay. it's an aussie company. it's about $160.oo US. AND, they say you can use it (daily) for up to a year. which makes that price just seem yummy.
go to ebay and do a search for "skin roller". the one you want, is probably described as a "skin and scalp roller". read through the description, and it'll say .75mm somewhere (they have shorter needlez, but those probably won't help one bit). ALSO, look for the one with 96 needlez. cuz they sell ones w/ only half the needlez (48). which would suck, since you'd only cover half the surface that a 96er would do

HELLO , I HAVE ACNE SCARS WHICH IS 4YRS OLD MY DR. SAID DERMAROLLER IS BEST FOR UR SCARS. IS IT HELPFUL? WHAT R ITS SIDEFFECTS,PLZ REPLY

Can dermaroller be used if you still have some active acne? Or it is better to use after you have stopped having breakouts?

i heard retin-a is bad to use when needling since it just keeps peeling layers off skin

Hi,

I found this before-after dermaroller picture from my dermatologist. I think it's a good thing to people see how can dermaroller treat scar.



My dermatologist is dr Gunawan Budi Santoso Spkk, in Indonesia. Iam from Indonesia too. I go to him when I try to treat my acne scar. It's about 3 years ago when dermaroller was not popular in Indonesia. He recommended me with dermabrasion. I did it with very nice improvement.
And thinking to get dermaroller with him.

I remember when he see my scar, he uses lighting effect like above before after picture, to see how severe the scar, because from lighting effect we can see the dept and the shadow of the scar.

I wonder what his scars look like now...it could just be swelling as I get the same results but after a while the skin reverts back indentation and all. The lighting in the before picture is much different from the after.

it doesn't work but you've had 10-20% improvement and based on your post, you've only done it twice.

Hi all,

I've been following the needling threads with optimism for some time now, but I was just looking at the Scientia derma roller site just now and noticed something very disheartening. Their "Before and After" photos, which at first appear to be really promising, have been clearly altered with airbrushing or something like that. If you look at the photo, for example, of a young Asian girl under the heading "Acne scar removal" she appears to have very prounounced scarring in the left photo, and perfectly smooth skin in the right photo. However, if you take a closer look, it's the same photo. Her strands of hair are even in the exact same place (though the whole photo has been lightened slightly). If the product genuinely worked, presumably they would have hundreds of before and after photos to choose from. Instead, they've posted a fake photo -- that says to me there aren't any good real before and afters. It also indicates the company is not above fraudulent advertising.

I'll try to attach the photo here (though I'm not sure I know how to do that) in case Scientia takes it down after people start realizing its fake.

So disappointing.

an abundant of fake photo results either due to lighting, makeup, and photo-editing. in my opinion, after dermal rolling for over a year, it is a waste of time and the results is mostly due to swelling, if there is any results, it's very minimal which is why dermal rollers are often used in combination with topical agents because they aren't effective alone.

You can find some honest supplier elsewhere.
I've posted about those idiots from Scientia before:

BTW, that girl doesn't have scars, that's just active acne, which you should never needle cuz it makes it worse.

I had fraxel repair done (the one where you're under anesthetic and your face is raw and bloody for a week) once all over and once in just the places with scarring. i have rolling acne scars on both cheeks on the sides of my mouth. for some reason it had 90 percent improvement on one side but the other side was resistant and it looks a little better but still sort of the same. so i've used a 1.5 dermaroller 3 times, 4 weeks apart at this point and i havent seen much improvement in the scars but it also hasnt had enough time to build any collagen. after i did the fraxel the same thing happened. it looked exactly the same but one day after about 6 months i noticed the scarring on one side was just about gone. so its one of those things you cant really rate until you honestly wait months. it does the same thing the fraxel laser did where it destroys columns of scar tissue and your collagen fills it in. you just have to go deep enough. i did the less intense fraxels too but they couldnt go deep enough to get my scar tissue. i would say with most acne scarring use a 1.5. i am planning on using the individual needles in a few days and then i will rest for about two months to see if anything is happening. if you do it too often i would be worried that you might be destroying the improvement you have been making. you really have to be patient. i know it sucks but thats the way it is. i will probably be rolling a couple times a year for the rest of my life, honestly because as we age we naturally lose collagen and if you still have any scar tissue whatsoever its going to pull the skin back down into the pits. if you manage to get rid of every trace of scar tissue then that wont be an issue but im just going to assume its always there and not let up. once its gone i dont want it coming back. but im just telling you all that my fraxel worked on my less resistant side and its the exact same thing as dermaroller. same concept. also, if it doesnt work on you it might just be you and not the dermaroller. some people just have resistant scars.

When i roll with 1.5 mm I didn't hear the crack sound of scars tissue broken but last week I roll with 2.0 mm with fear in my heart and I hear the cracking sound, 1.5 mm it's too short for me. Des Fernandes start rolling with 3.0 mm size and nobody dies....

This dermarolling thread is already 9 years old (what!?!) but, in case anyone is searching for dermaroller info check out Sarah Vaughtner's website, Vaughtner Wellness I think. She sells dermarollers, derma stamps and needling tools (even creams, etc). All prices are very reasonable, and she provides tons of straightforward and detailed information as well. I have a .5 dermaroller from her and I use it with my PCA skin, as well as my Rx Differin. It is amazing for smoothing skin texture and hyperpigmentation.
