DC Girl,

First of all, OMG, sing hallelujah! That is one big leap, girl! :) Seriously, you look stunning.

So I have a few questions. I too have just implemented the single needling into my masochistic regimen and I would like to know what is your weapon of choice. Insulin lancet, tattoo needle, or acupuncture needle? Does it even make any difference as long as you are able to poke till you drop? (I can already hear somebody cheering Boo-yeah!)

Second, how often did you poke the same scar? Daily, weekly, or further out in time?

Third, when you insert the needle under the skin
1) how deep do you go?
2) what is the angle of the needle?
3) do you poke only once or multiple times?
4) do you ever pivot the needle from left to right to break up the scar tissue similar to the actual subcision treatment?

Thanks!

Congratulations on your success!

 

I have a question on single needling, do you also poke the borders of the scars or just in the scars?

DC-girl your skin looks fantastic. Congratulations!

 

When you said you cut out unsaturated fats, did you mean to say saturated fats? Are you saying these diet changes helped your needling success or were you more talking about getting rid the acne?

 

I'd also be interested to know how old your scars were and how old you are, if that's not too personal a question.

 

Thank you so much for posting.your success, it really helps to give hope.

i doubt 30% tca chemica peels wipe away shallow scars because i have tried it already and my scars are shallow

 

Feel free to doubt all you want. I'm not gonna waste my time trying to convince you.  It eliminated a couple of scars for me that were new, shallow scars. That's a fact, end of story. 

Sorry you haven't had good luck. If your diet is bad, you might not be healing as well, or maybe your scars are old, which means they need more than 1 treatment. Or maybe you didn't do it right, or maybe you used a crappy tca, the possibilities are endless, my friend.

 

or 30% tca peel wouldnt be strong enough to read the dermis to fix the scars or you would get second degree burns

 

Dude. A tca peel IS a chemical burn. And if you have a scar that's too deep, of course you should needle it or go another route if you're not getting success with TCA.

What are you after here? I have before and after pics and laid out exactly how I got here just to be helpful. What's your goal? Trying to dissuade someone from improving their scars with TCA? Why? Because they might burn themselves? OF COURSE YOU CAN BURN YOURSELF, IT'S AN ACID. A TCA peel is simply controlled damage.  That's why I VERY CLEARLY said in my initial post, that I recommend TCA when you've educated yourself and it's used cautiously and properly. Is there anything on this planet that can't hurt you when you're not prepared or don't handle it properly? A kitten could claw you in the eye and put your eye out if you're careless enough.

 

And if a scar's too deep for TCA, then use needling or other means, I never said TCA is the only way to treat scars, I just said it brought immediate improvement in some newer shallow ones I had. That's it. I clearly stated I used both of these AND SEVERAL OTHER TACTICS BESIDES ACIDS to get where I am now.

 

I'm just telling people what I've done and what works for me. I do this because I know the agony of hopelessness that many people with scars have.

youre the only one getting upset here haha im just reply to your post relax and letting people know not to get there hopes up thinking it will remove there scars

Well the whole reason for my post is hope.

Hope is healthy. Not expectation, but hope, there's a difference.

 

And I had fabulous success with TCA on shallow, newer, atrophic type scarring but if it's the older, white, hard, knotted kind, it will need to be stamped/needled.

I really love the insulin needles, because they're so cheap and easy to get but I recently invested in the single needles from owndoc because according to them you shouldn't go quite so deep. I'm not sure if that's true but that's what I'm currently using anyhow. I would just read the directions for single needling on Owndoc, they pretty much have it down to a science.

I just pricked at each scar until it was to swollen and/or bleeding and I couldn't really see any untouched areas. And yes it's a good idea (IF YOUR SKIN IS STRONG ENOUGH; I.E. NOT ON RETIN-A) to pivot and reach underneath the scar at an angle. I did that many times. I have one caveat though, just because you wanna create enough injury to sustain a cascade healing reaction isn't the same as just mutilating your face, so don't go overboard, but make sure you're bleeding and that you cover all the surface area of the scar thoroughly. 

 

I wasn't super regular about the needling actually, I didn't have a set schedule but, generally speaking, I didn't do it more than once a month, although in the past there were a few times I did it 2-3 weeks apart and a few times I did it 12 weeks apart. I was really kind of all over the place. Owndoc says not more than monthly for single needles. However you can do a .5mm every 2 days I think.

For depth, I go as far as I can, so if I'm using a 1mm, I'll go 1mm deep, if it's a 2mm, I go 2mm deep, etc. Other than single needle, my 2nd weapon of choice is the Derma-stamp and so that is straight on- not at an angle.

Congratulations on your success!

 

I have a question on single needling, do you also poke the borders of the scars or just in the scars?

 

I hit any and all area that is scar tissue. So yes, I poke the borders.

 

Remember, a lot of people stamp/roll non-scarred skin for anti-aging/wrinkle benefits too, so it's not a huge deal if you got slightly outside the scar.



DC-girl your skin looks fantastic. Congratulations!

 

When you said you cut out unsaturated fats, did you mean to say saturated fats? Are you saying these diet changes helped your needling success or were you more talking about getting rid the acne?

 

I'd also be interested to know how old your scars were and how old you are, if that's not too personal a question.

 

Thank you so much for posting.your success, it really helps to give hope.

 

Thanks so much.

NO! I meant exactly what I said; I DO NOT EAT UN-saturated oils. I DO EAT healthy Saturated fats, coconut oil, butter, etc.

It helps both acne and scarring, a healthy body both kills inflammation/infection (acne)  and heals better (scarring).

 

I'm old, LOL, early thirties, so some of the scars were very recent, and some were 10 years old.

 

I'm happy to hear it gives you hope, that's exciting!

No omega-3, fish oils, olive oil etc then. I will have to read up on this, I always though unsaturated fat was considered good. O3 particularly is considered a miracle cure for just about everything.

Yeah, I know, I always thought that too. I do eat some olive oil but not a lot like I used to.

You want saturated fats. Unsaturated fats lead to increased inflammation,etc. I know a lot about this because I struggled with arthritis too and they were always telling me to eat Omega-3's and I was having bad flare-ups. And it makes a lot of sense when you think about it, we're land animals, mammals, not fish or plants.

Read Ray Peat's articles on his website if you want to learn more. He explains about the old studies (on essential fatty acids) they base all that omega-3 info on. Just a warning, it's not exactly light reading, so put your thinking cap on when you do, they're science articles, he's not selling a book, or a diet, or anything, so you really have to educate yourself on this by taking the time to read and understand it.

LOL. I went to the owndoc site, the before and after pictures are all rigged with different angles and much different lightening which will obviously give the impression there has been improvement.   Unfortunately I think it is a load of BS...

I'm pretty sure the TCA cross is just higher concentrations of TCA tooth-picked into the depressions and the TCA peel is a lower concentration peel of the entire face? someone correct me if im wrong. I noticed DC-girl went to Dr. Lam in Dallas, this excites me because that is only a five hour drive from where I live and I had my eye on him for awhile anyway. He prefers to treat the indents with the TCA CROSS method and or micro silicon injections. He has been doing this for years and it seems that there is very little to no complaints or side effects. Of, course there is no 100% improvement but he seems to being getting the best results on acne scarring in my opinion around the U.S. You can also contact him through his forum and he will respond quickly to any questions that you may have. I just wish I wouldnt have jumped gun and gotten some excisions done, I think I would have had better results with Dr. Lams techniques.

Well you can get derma-stamps anywhere, doesn't have to be owndoc, if you don't like them.

They work for me though.



What's the difference with tca cross and tca peel and which method do you recommend?

 Cross generally means a 100% application.

I've never done that because I was too nervous about it so I just used 30% tca, generally just as a spot treatment so I didn't have a lot of downtime.

Wow this is really amazing. Congrats on your result! I have a couple of questions for you.

 

1. How many 30% TCA peels have you applied to get this far? I have done 12.5%, 18%, 21%, 24% once each and my skin has improved, but only slightly. I have ordered 30% this time from MUAC. Hopefully it will work better this time.

2. Which brand of TCA peel did you use?

3. What was the needle length for dermastamp? Is there any reason you chose dermastamp over dermaroller?

4. Did you have any problem with dermastamp creating new scars? I have used 2 mm dermastamp (ugh, might have been too long for my skin), but that literally caused more scarring that did not recover on its own :(

5. Did you try anything beside dermastamp and TCA peel? Microdermabrasion? Other chemical peels?

6. I see that your face is a bit red, which I assume is hyperpigmentation. What is your plan to get rid of this?

 

I would sincerely appreciate your response. Again, congratulations on your success!

I would sincerely appreciate your response. Again, congratulations on your success!

 

 

1. I don't know, didn't really do that many full face peels, mostly spot treatments. In fact, I don't know if I ever did a full face 30%, although I did do a couple lower strength ones, I think those were 15% or 20%. I just prefer spot treating, less downtime and I think the body heals stronger when it's not overwhelmed with too much at once.

 

2. MUAC.

 

3. I normally use 1.5 or 2mm. But I've used all sizes before. I much prefer the stamp, it hurts less, so you can push harder, be more thorough.

 

4.  Only once did I have a scar from a Derma-Roller but it wasn't self inflicted. Ironically, the 1st time I did rolling I was afraid I'd mess it up, so I  did it with a plastic surgeon and he used a 3mm which I think is too long and now I have a scratch type scar from that. I don't think he did a straight line lift and pull which is very important when rolling, you can't just roll all over like a paintbrush and that's how he did it. It's not super serious and it's not hard white scar tissue like a boxscar or anything but I can see it in certain lighting. It's by my eye so I haven't messed with it much. I also think that might not have happened if I wasn't using retin-A at the time because it made my skin fragile and thin.

That's crazy that you got scarred from a 2mm...........did you wait long enough between intervals? Did you press straight in and lift straight out? Do you use retin A? When I was on retin-A I seemed to be super prone to scarring, that's why I don't recommend it.

 

5. Yes, read my initial post on this thread.

 

6. No, the redness is probably just cause I'm warm in the picture. I'm very fair, very white and I flush easily. There's a couple very small spots from tca spot treating in that pic but it only accounts for about 1% of the redness there. I also some freckles near my eye, but I don't consider that hyperpigmentation. Also, funny enough,I think I ate something before I took that pic because it looks kinda yellow/brown by my lip but I don't have any type of hyperpigmentation there either, LOL

 

But if you have hyperpigmentation, I recommend getting off Retin-A, and using natural stuff, lemon juice and/or lactic acid and salicylic acid peels. I feel those are pretty safe. Just don't over do the peels and destroy the acid mantel on your skin constantly. Part of why my skin looks good is because I use oils and don't dry it out too much. An inclusive ointment is a really good idea after peels and/or rolling/stamping. Something like petroleum or Alba's Un-petroleum jelly if you prefer.  I use different types of occlusive ointments DAILY because I believe its very good for the skin. You want your skin to have a chance to recover every 30-45 days and occlusion helps with Co2 production.

Hey, thanks for through answers. I really appreciate it.

 

The reason why I got more scars from 2 mm dermastamp was b/c I used it on my nose. Nose is definitely different from other facial areas. I have never tried retin-a before, even though I haved used retinol from MUAC, which does not contain tretinoin. I was planning to use retin-a, but after reading your post, I might hold onto it. I may move into spot treatments as well with 30%. I will post updates if it turns out well :)

Oh, no wonder, yes, not much fat on your nose. Totally different ball game there.

Yeah, spot treatments are nice.

If you can, make sure and take high quality pics and/or just do 1/2 of a scar so you can accurately judge the level of improvement.

Good luck!

Don't mind the other people who keep giving off negativity, this site is full of em.

Hey, I have two more questions for ya.

 

1. You said you love using oils. Which oil did you find most effective? I have used bio oil, emu oil and argan oil so far. I had some reaction to bio oil, but not so much for the other two. I am currently using argan oil because I think it helps me soothe my skin. If you have any recommendation, please feel free to comment on it.

 

2. You mentioned you have used all sizes of needles. Is there any reason why you would go for longer ones? I know longer one penetrates deeper into dermis region, but the down time is longer and there are potential "scratch" issue. Did you mainly use the stamp to get rid of deeper scars?

 

Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1. I would not use Bio oil, pretty sure that has mineral oil in it; bad stuff. I actually use coconut oil, not a ton of it but I make sure my face is never dry and I never buy store bought moisturizers. It's good stuff but can be greasy. Rosewater spray with glycerin is good too, glycerin helps your skin retain it's own moisture. I like the A&D ointment from owndoc for an occlusive ointment and my new favorite thing is grass fed beef tallow. It's packed full of nutrients and healthy fat for the skin to nourish it. It feels so rich and luxurious, like your putting frosting on your skin, it's just really creamy and awesome.  I've also read other reports of beef tallow improving people's scars.

 

2. According to Dr. Fernandes you DO need longer for deeper scars. He uses 1mm but says sometimes you need 3mm for deep scars. The "scratch" issue has nothing to do with length but more to do with the "paint" or "star" pattern.  I know I said above I thought 3mm might be too long but the more I put some attention on that memory I remember that guy just rolling all over my face in a starfish pattern, like crazy, like painting a wall. And that's the wrong way. So, I don't think it was the length that made the scratch.

Just roll in straight lines and pick up the roller and press down again. Always lift it off the skin after each pass and you'll be fine.

I've never used more than a 1.5 or 2mm on myself at home.  But I really don't think you're gonna do any harm even with a 3mm if you roll right.

Or you can keep it easy and just use a stamp/single needle, then you won't even have that issue.  Here Dr Fernandes talks a bit about needle length:

But to answer your question, yes I mainly use a stamp, I like it much better than rolling.
