wow... i was scared. I used icepack for my face for 30 mins and started rolling! I rolled pretty hard with lots of pressure. It hurted pretty bad but i held it in! I was bleeding like crazy... now it looks like road rash with lots and lots of blood red dotts, its also hurting and i feel my face pulsing with pain! I think i did a good job cool.gif

so.. im going to neosporin for 24 hours and use vitamin C serum, A and D ointment for post care/treatment to force collagen remodeling!

so its day 2! face is still super red with some dotted blood on it; still looks pretty much like my face got track marks on it, but less than the initial day. My face is super smooth right now when i look at it from harsh lighting; pretty much scar-free! but of course... its due too microswelling. We'll see how it looks later on : D.

(i should of done this rolling thing a long time ago)

He's using a 1.5mm dermaroller and has boxcar scars and about 3 shallow rolling scars. Just thought I'd answer since I knew : P He's currently out of town for a couple of days.

hello! today is day 4 still red/pinkish! so far so good! the only thing that is weird/negative is that my skin is a bit rougher right how. If you rub your hands gently across your rolled skin, its a bit rougher than your normal non-rolled skin (not sure If I explained this in a clear way, lol). My guess is that its still healing/remodeling and also micro scabs from puncture wounds? Oh wells, I rather have a rougher face with no scars I suppose : D.

hmm... i think i rolled very hard; its day 4 and Its still awfully red.


Thanks for answering my question, Lily! razz.gif

oh yeah! I also have 2-3 teeny tiny pimples on the rolled areas... i think its due to the A and D ointment since its made with vaseline type of stuff. My guess is that its clogging my poors so I'll be on my antibiotic meds to hopefully counter that : ).

day 5

the color is light pink now and i can see the needle marks if i stare closely at my face. Are the marks going to go away eventually? i hope so.. : /. Aside from that, scars are pretty much gone (at least for now)! the hyperpigmentation from the acne scars are still there but much lighter as well! : D

i might post pics : p. I feel self concious but i know i shouldnt... we'll see...


day 6

skin color finally came back! woohoo! although skin color is pretty much normal, my texture of my skin is rough now-definitely not smooth. its hard to put percentage on my scar but i would say 60-70%. If i stare closely at my scar i can see that its still a bit dented in but definitely not as bad as before! : )

hmmm... just washed my face and some skin fell off and left some parts bright pink. I realized the "rough" part I was talking about are actually scabs!!! #$%$#@@. So if you guys roll, be sure to not wash your face too harshly, in fact... be as gentle as possible; do not even use any strong cleanser. After gentle wash, just apply your post treatment-C serum, leave it on for 10 mins and then apply moisturizer or ointment.

on normal basis, I usually use sodium sulfacetamide 10% (prescribed by derm). But for post dermaroll- I use cetaphil cleanser since its not too harsh on skin. After you start having rough skin/scabs from rolling (usually start occuring 2-3 days after roll), be sure to just let the dead skin/scab fall off by itself. Your skin will be very itchy after for couple of days after you roll, just dont scratch it or anything either.
