Me again. I have now done 4 needling sessions with a 1.8mm single needle, 3 of those times I used Copper Peptides directly afterwards and daily thereafter.

 

There is a most definite improvement, however it is very slow. I will be doing session 5 in the middle of August at the earliest. There is about 40% improvement over the 4 sessions, so realistically I think it will be at least a year before I get very good results. Definitely no quick fixes when it comes to the nose!

 

I don't have a good camera, so it was difficult to exactly chart my progress, and a few times I was asking myself - is it improved or am I imagining it? However, the way I know it is dramatically improved, is by comparing the two pit scars to other scarred pores I have. The two pit scars I wanted to treat dwarfed the other pits, and were visible literally 2 feet away in the mirror. Now, I cannot see them from that distance at all, and when I go closer to the mirror, they actually resemble the other pit scars I have.

 

I'll update again around the end of August/early September.

Where did you get your needles?
And how much time is spaced apart for every treatment?

Hi, me again.

 

After this length, I can report, that out of 2 particularly horrible life altering scars on my nose, one has filled in slightly. Maybe 30%.

 

That's about a year since individual needling, and TCA peels....so, one scar, as big as ever with no response, one scar, has filled in somewhat.

 

It's incredibly slow progress. Believe me, as much as anyone, I want an instant fix, but....I think honestly it'll take YEARS, if not more, to fill them in completely.

 

I have been needling, TCA 25% peels, etc, but....it really is just a very slow process. One scar on my nose has responded OK, with an improvement, the other deep scar, is not responding at all, and is still as bad as ever after needling and TCA.

So from your year of needling,
Which parts of the nose responds best to needling nd which parts does not respond well?

Sarah Vaughter of 'owndoc' doesn't recommend needling on the nose, I'd do some more research about your nose before you commit to needling that area.

I'm not saying dermaroller won't work on the nose

This is from owndoc's dermaroller pdf

'Scars on the nose All invasive skin treatments on the nose are risky because this area reacts and heals
unpredictable and it can end up worse. You can try a 1 mm dermastamp but never perform any aggressive
stamping here. Start slowly and try one small area first'

 

I don't have any scars on my nose, just pigmentation and some visible pores so I'm not the right person to give advice.

I can say that I've had fraxel restore and that didn't have any detrimental (nor positive) effect on my nose.
