I have been wondering around this site and on youtube for the past few years trying to find out how to get rid of my rolling and boxcar scars on my cheeks. I was an inch away from having a CO2 laser done but I my mind kept telling me to try the dermaroller first due to how expensive it was
I made a pledge to myself that once I find out something that works I will give back that knowledge. After several sessions of dermarolling with ok results I stumbled across the dermapen and I searched vigorously online to find an at home dermapen and I ended up finding a knockoff on Amazon. I use Super Copper peptide serum afterwards, I have used it twice and IT WORKS LIKE NOTHING ELSE. For the first time I received Noticeable results after each at treatment. Something that I gave up on a long time ago.
I have been using saline injections since last summer and they too help with the physical depression of rolling scars and I started doing these since last summer and between a month and week after my forth treatment just before my 5th treatment I would estimate 40% improvement so I know it is permanent but to be honest I hate giving out percentages because it is almost impossible to tell but they are significantly less depressed.
Things I have tried in the past that DO NOT WORK
-Lactic acid 50%
-100% pure hyaluronic acid
-Vitamin C serum
-different oils (ie olive)
-The list goes on and on I can not list them all
Things that have WORKED!!
-Dermapen (Dermapen is the brand name I got some knock off from Amazon and It is the very best thing I have used)
-Saline Injections (This is the second thing that I found that works great for depressions but you need several of them and they are the best for rolling scars)
-3 TCA 25% Peel layered twice helps with texture and PIH but it does NOTHING for depressions
I do have some ice picks but nothing seems to be working on ice picks. I was thinking on DIY TCA CROSS (I know It is borderline playing with fire but if anyone has been doing TCA CROSS please give some input it seems that only a few are brave enough on this site to experiment with it.)
