do you think derma stamp would be better for boxcar scares? i have some on the
left side of my cheek. i also have red scares but i can deal with those. i just
really want to make my boxcar scarring less noticeable. /:
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
I've got a set of dermarolls and the ointments necessary for use, but I've yet to use it. I would highly recommend purchasing from http://owndoc.com/support/ there.
Sarah Vaughter is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and isn't at all pushy about her product. I read a lot of her stuff over the years, but still haven't started my dermarolling for my own stretch marks. I plan to start soon, but I have some things to take care of before I begin. I plan to take before/after pictures.
Read up on her site, and if you have any more questions, ask. From what I gather so far, dermarolling combined with either cocoa butter, AHA or retin-a may actually help reduce scarring and stretch marks.
