Derma Rolling Treatments

13 posts in this topic

Just looking for a place to keep record and share my derma rolling process.

Started derma rolling 3 weeks ago. Bought my 1.5mm roller from Amazon for $27. Don't think it is the best roller but I'll keep it for now.

I use:

  1. Bio Oil $10 (CVS, Walgreens)

  2. Julie's Apeel Correct (perfectcomplexion.net)

  3. A multi-vitamin

  4. Lots of drinking water

I've been an acne sufferer since the age of 15. Took Accutane at age 16. Acne cleared until age 24 when I had a temporary recurrence due to a separate illness. I had surgery for my illness and had a remission in my acne until age 29. I am 30 now and dealing with some minor occasional breakouts when under stress.

Acne scars are about 15 years old and they include icepicks, boxscars, orange-peel, bumpy texture. Scars have been red ever since they emerged.

Schedule so far:

  • First week I did 3 days of light-medium pressure rolling.

  • Second week I did 3 days of light-medium pressure rolling.

  • Third week I did 1 day of hard pressure rolling.

  • Won't roll again for another 2 weeks.

I apply Julie's Apeel Correct then roll a few passes on each cheek and chin area. Thirty minutes later, I apply the Bio Oil.

Image below is first image BEFORE my first roll. I have seen some improvement so far, but cannot gauge how much because it is still too early in the game. Will update later with progress images.

Thanks

I would not mess around with this dermarolling stuff....

You are likely to make your scars worse.

You have to understand...people are trying to make a buck any way they can.

They will sell you cyanide if they can get away with it. Mark my words.

They do not care if they make your scarring worse...all they care about is

if they get some money out of you.

I've had Sculptra, Juvederm injections and gotten a 90% improvement in my

acne scarring. After tanning, getting a good even skin tone to minimize the

appearance of redness I actually look better with some slight scarring because

my skin and face are more ruggedly handsome then doll faced and feminine.

I am not joking. Results can be achieved.

...I am not joking...this is one of the reason's Brad Pitt is so popular and widely

considered handsome. His skin is rugged, but at the same time his facial features

are handsome.

Other men with super smooth skin are too doll faced looking.

Do you have any proof to say that it is likely to make scars worse? If you do it right and with the right length needle you're going to see improvements, not worsening of scars.

There are far too many posts by reputable members that have shown that dermarolling works for some people. Not to mention that it is pretty cheap. It would be hard to make a buck off of something like that.

Dear Diary,

My dog just took another crap on the floor and I tripped over my computer cord. I think I might just stay in bed today.

Just did my medium-hard press roll. I skipped last week because I got lazy. Applied Bio-Oil. Will skip Apeel today because my face....

BUUUURRRNS!

Started running/training last week, gave up all sugary/fatty foods as of two weeks ago. Taking multi-vitamin everyday as usual, drinking water.

Will post another image after swelling/redness subsides.

@Pord

As long as you disinfect your roller properly and store it so that foreign matter doesn't damage the needles, dermarolling with one roller is perfectly okay. As with anything you do that can break blood vessels, there is always an infection or injury risk. I think you run the same chance with a disposable roller as with a multiple-use roller. The needles can bend and break and you can introduce bacteria to the treatment area. The key here is proper sanitation and care. I use hot tap water and isopropyl alcohol to sterilize my needles.

Thanks for the response. This still has me iffy - though I do understand what you are saying.
