Thanks for responding, CrispyCraters!

 

How are your scars now by the way? Are you still getting progress?

I've been doing this and I feel I am noticing help on my small icepick scars, but am not quite sure. My box car rolling scars are bad still. I will continue this. My question is how often are you rolling... I seem to heal within a week but I'm worried that underneath it all I am not healed. How often Do you roll for sucuess.

Do you have before/after pictures? It would be much more helpful if we could see the severity of your scars.

CrispyCraters are you still rolling? Are you getting any more improvment? I am curious to know does your skin now look smooth?

@Crownroyal... how is your progress going?

No offence to the OP but if this worked why are you still here? Crispy some pics would really help

@pineapple, my skin is much improved, I have not rolled in ages and no longer really feel the urge to do soo, infact not sure when I might roll/use the e derma stamp. My skin is now bearable, my initial problem was ice pic scars. To be 100% honest the only major flaws showing now are scars I treated with TCA cross! they are shallow but wider as a result of TCA cross, but improve with each roll/stamp, I can't even tell where my ice pick scars are now. My theory is due to the collagen induced or skin tightening effect of the rolls my scars improved as a result.

I will roll again perhaps when I have time but this time I will include Cicalfate cream which I belive will speed up my healing time.

I will update once I do soo.

And to recap I was depressed about my scars in the beginning, lost a lot of confidence, didn't go out much, now I'm meeting new people and getting on with things, very happy with my current outcome.

When I did my treatments I used 2mm rollers or set my e derma stamp to 2, bled a bit as it was intense, used super Cop serum, all of the items specified by the OP, the done time was long for me, usually almost a week and few days and even found my skin darkened from the treatment so it wasn't fun at all, I eventually needed fade creams to treat this after.

I did start my fight to rid myself of scars in 2012 and did roll on and off through out but something definitely changed when I used the stuff mentioned by the OP which I'm still greatful about. Pictures are motivational I agree but e derma stamps are really affordable and low risk compared to a lot of other options, if anyone needs pointers just pm.

Hey guys, I've been following this protocol and basically roll with a 1.5 - 2 week interval.

Approximately I've rolled for 1.5 months and I do believe I've seen some changes, although I will have to keep rolling to be certain.

I've been through 9 sessions of Fraxel Re:Store before this and dermarolled for a few times before I started this as well, trying to get some pics of my Fraxel sessions so I could use them as baseline.

 

CrispyCrater's have been very helpful to me personally when I PM him.

 

I've also added in some of the tips in this topic http://www.acne.org/...-my-acne-scars/ into my program such as MSM, Vit C, Zinc etc been meaning to add in some topicals to get rid of the pigmentation (freckles) and balance out the textures but damn dermaheal is expensive.

Crownroyal, thanks for the reply, I am so happy to hear that you have had improvement! And even happier your depression improved, i've been there so I completely understand.

I think I have the same issue as you because I have done tca cross on myself and it made the scars wider :( some of them got better but I actually made one wayy worse! I'm wondering and hoping this regime will help those scars too!?

So guys, my next stamp session is on the 28th and I am sooo excited, been waiting very, very patiently! Have to pick up some more of the L-lysine lol I am almost out. Goodluck guys and I will keep posted as well :)

I've purchased all of the necessary items and I'm excited to begin the protocol.

I have a couple questions that maybe you could help with:
1. I drink shakeology, a protein mix that has a few different types of protein including whey. Will that still be ok?

2. Could I also take a zinc supplement for acne on my back? Here's the one I'll be taking: http://www.amazon.co...aw/d/B000KI6Z7O

Thank you!

I also have another question. How do I know when my rolled areas are healed enough to roll again? Do I wait for ALL redness to subside, or just the flaking and crustiness?

Here's the reply I got from Crispy:

 

What I did was wait until it looked about 98% healed or so and then rolled again. After I started taking these supplements my skin started healing very rapidly, as quickly as recovering to 98% in less than a week where without it was having to wait 3-4 weeks before it looked healed up. If I were you I'd roll as soon as it looks healed to around 98% or so.

Hi, out of all the new questions that have this is the only one that hasn't already been answered. I don't know how taking zinc will affect the healing of your scars because I wasn't taking it at the time. As for the protein mix, taking whey protein is part of the protocol and is not a substitute for taking the isolated amino acids on their own. There's only one cure that I know of for acne scars and that's the exact protocol I typed out in the first post, there may be others out there but I haven't seen them.

Hey Lam, glad to hear you think you're seeing changes, hopefully the improvements will be clear after you've been rolling for a solid 2 months like it was for me. What size derma roller did you end up deciding on? Also, are there any items you have left out for any reason? Good luck

I'd definitely be interested in some before and after pics if you have them. Do you still have active acne while doing this?

Thank you for answering. My question about the shakeology was specifically about the whey protein requirement, as I'm still taking the pill supplements you've recommended.

Why is the protein specifically WHEY protein?

Do you have any resources that you used to create this protocol that you can share with us?

It might work with egg protein, or soy protein or vegetable but I was using whey protein and so that's what I know works although it's common knowledge that whey protein is the most bio available form of protein. I didn't really use any specific resources, just my knowledge of biology and experience with supplements.

Hey Crispy, I'm still using the 1.5 mm needle dermastamp, just purely because the 2.0mm hurts like hell. The only thing I may have left out is the type 2 collagen, which I finally got delivered to me last week, took forever.

 

So I'm restarting the needling need, back to day 1 with all the supplements and topicals, adding a few extra topicals as well such as vit a, c, msm and dermaheal sb just to take advantage of the product penetration.

 

I guess if in 2 months I fail to see substatantial improvements I'll move onto the 2.0 mm or buy a 2.0 mm stamp, rollers definitely hurt way more.

 

My scarring isn't as bad as some of the people on this board, in fact calling them moderately might get some mean looks. My large pores are most apparent, I doubt needling will improve this but we'll see after 2 months.

 

I'll post my before after when I have time.

I really hope it works for you and appreciate the updates. 

It's good to note that lamchopz results so far are from using the 1.5 stamp instead of the 2.0 roller and only just recently added the type II collagen to his regimen which is an important part of it (it's collagen which is what your skin is made of after all).

 

It sounds like you're getting quick healing times but need to be using the 2.0 roller. The pain you're describing is from you hitting deep into the dermis which you'll need to do. 1.5 may work for you and I really hope it does, but 2.0 is a different ball-game altogether; I know the pain you're talking about, I had to just go crazy for a bit and roll hard for about 8 seconds on each cheek...16 seconds total pain. There's some numbing cream you can purchase called "LIDOCAINE" aka EMLA that has also been shown to aid in scar tissue healing that you may want to look into in order to use the 2.0 roller.

Hahaha... I have been using Lidocaine...

Maybe I can go buy some heroin or cocaine...
