aren't better ways/treatment. I chose rolling, ultrasound, led lights, topicals, supplements,
and nutrition. I have pigmentation problems from dermabrasion and moderate rolling acne
scars (not mild but not severe), chemical burn.
I'm gonna honestly say a 35% improvement, but its hard to say. I saw my "ex" a month
ago and she said I looked fantastic, actually couldn't believe my improvement. So I know its
working (havn't seen her for 1.5 years).
Rolling takes longer than I thought it would. Its so gradual, the change. This method for me
has been positive, but slow. So Im looking at a year from now to have 60-70% results (2 years).
Have to say I really, really, want nice looking skin. So I won't stop until I have it.
Once you see positive results, you're on the right road.
Thanks to lamar1986, munsoned, nancy, others, their threads are fantastic and must reading for anyone
who wants to roll. Hope my comments below help someone. Best wishes to everyone
with the technique/procedure they use with their problem scars.
I have rolled with a .5 a couple of times, a 1 mm (once I think), and a 1.5 three times.
If you decide to roll, first roll with a .5 mm a couple of times to get a feel for rolling. Others
here will testify that there's a technique or feel to it. Plus there's fear factor. Rolling
with a 1.5 was really scarey the first time I did it. I went from a .5 to a 1mm, to a 1.5 mm.
Use bentadine and sterile gloves, both are pretty cheap. Since I got an infection on my
cheek from collagen injections, Im pretty paranoid about infection.
On the time frame, if you follow Dr Fernandez's theory, use the topical of your choice
for 3 months before 1.5 rolling. My deviation from Fernandez would be to initially roll
.5, .5, then at least one 1mm roll right away. Then give it a 3 month rest. My little theory
is that 1mm rolling right away helps initially kick in the process (but you gotta rest after to
get your sking working properly with topicals).
So I 1.5 rolled in sept 09, nov 09, and feb 2010. Just 3 times. I rolled really "good" the
first time. And really "heavy" the last 2 times. So for 7 months now I havn't rolled. My
best results have been in the past month.....6 months post rolling. My belief is not to
"Over-roll". If you're gonna roll a lot, do it when you first first start. You have to rest
your skin at some point. A quarter sized chemical burn has 30% healed in the month of
August for me, with no rolling at all. I look at the spot amazed when I look at myself.
Its almost strange not to see it there. Again, with no rolling, just letting nature take its
I am about to roll again in September, havn't decided for sure, but probably with a 2mm,
and then rest 6 months.
I use red, yellow, infared from LED man. Just recently, late July, I started using
4x what I normally use them, once a month (suggested by the bulgarian derm).
Otherwise, 7 minutes yellow, and 3.5 each red/infared (separately). Somedays I miss
This therapy. I worked out my times ages ago, so don't ask me to show you the math
2x week for 5 minutes. I ultrasound topicals deeper into my skin.
Vitamin c, curcumin,beta glucan, oral collagen (kinda contraversial as to whether its absorbed),
L-proline (research this with collegan production....... "Ter-proline"), protein powder, and
just added serrapeptase and nattokinese on alternating days (these are contraversial too).
I have for 1 year and 3 months, juiced organic vegtables twice a day, only missing a few times.
Rest. No alcohol. Added l-lysine also (10/10).
Recommend a non-acidic vitamin c. I use vitamin a once a week. I will use it post-rolling for a week though per Dr. Fernandez. Anyone
wanting to know specifically what I use can pm me, don't want to be a salesman or seem that
