i have mild boxcar and red scares on my cheeks. I been reading a lot about Dermarolling and thought i would give it a shot since i have a lot of time on my hands. I think I'm going to start off with the 1.5mm.

so pretty much I'm asking:
Where should i buy my dermaroller from?
what Topical gels, cleansers, lotions should i use? (before and after)
what Vitamins should i be taking while i do this?

the Forums were seriously giving me a headache reading through all of them.
i just need simple answers to these questions

i would appreciate it A LOTPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I have the same question. I have some mild to moderate boxscars and was looking into dermarolling.

I am so sad about it though

Where should i buy my dermaroller from? - I recommend using a derma stamp instead. Easier to use, less chance of complications. I buy mine from jglobalsales.

what Topical gels, cleansers, lotions should i use? (before and after) - Vitamin C and Terproline Professional are good choices. Don't cleanse your face for a few days after rolling.

what Vitamins should i be taking while i do this? - Vitamin C is a must and another multi vitamin made specifically for skin health. I take Wellman's Skin Technology.

It's the same thing really, I just prefer derma stamp. Much easier to use, the needles are going straight in and out, with dermaroller it goes in at an angle.

I had many boxcar scars also on the left side of my cheek, most of them are either gone or extremely faint. Use a 1.5mm stamp on your cheek, 1.0mm on your temple since the skin is thinner there.

Do you know if Derma Roll + Retin-a will help reduce or even get rid of shallow boxcar scars like mine? Here are the photos
