My Dermarolling/needling Blog

10 posts in this topic

Going to try to make it as simple as possible...

I've been needling for around 8 months - year for a total of around 8 treatments. Though I wouldn't count the first 3-5 as successful treatments because I didn't have pinpoint bleeding and I wasn't very experienced. Although improvement in hyper pigmentation and a bit in the actual indentations was still be able to be seen... The recent 3 I would call more of successful treatments, as they have been combined with a 2.0m Dermastamp, Leds, Retin a and Copper Peptides and a lot of blood was drawn!

My diet: Vegan high carb, high fruit, lots of greens. Tons of water 2-3 Liters a day.

Supplements: Green Vibrance

My Daily Regimen: [sAVED FOR LATER]

My plan/Goal: I will be Needling every 6 weeks for all through 2014 and doing a 15% Tca Peel every 4 weeks (2 weeks after every treatment and a combo in every other needling session). As seen below.

If you have pitted scarring look into Subcision-Suction as well as microneeding. Check out my success

Cool stuff, gonna follow this.

A couple questions pertaining to the stamping/rolling (not the TCA). How critical do you think the LED is? Pros? Cons?

Also, what is the recovery time? Say you do that on a Friday evening, how are you looking on Sunday? or Monday morning?

Thanks and good luck.

Thanks for those links. I've read Liquid's before, but haven't read the other two. Lammarr's topic is huge, definitely going to have to check it out.

Do you know of any good links/resources for videos/instructions on how to correctly use a dermastamp? Same goes for TCA peels. Seems fairly obvious I guess, but it would nice to know any tips or things to avoid.

Is there any reason I should get a dermaroller? Or could I just stick with the stamp?

This procedure improves leathery skin, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and thick sebaceous type of Rosacea. The results are achieved with a series of micro punctures of tiny needles (thickness of a hair), which creates micro-channels into the dermis leaving the epidermis relatively intact (little need to hide out). Over the next several months after each procedure, collagen and elastic tissue are produced to smooth and tighten the skin. This works because of the following series of events occurring in the microscopic dermal layers of the skin; needle puncture results in microscopic bleeding which floods the area with platelets (Platelet Derived Growth Factor, PDGF), many growth factors, cytokines, fibroblasts, elastin and proteoglycans. A matrix of type III collagen and elastic tissue starts to form at 3 weeks and continues for 6 months which results in thicker skin. Starting 3 months after procedure to 10 months, that type III collagen converts to type I collagen to cross-link causing the skin tightening. This entire process is augmented by applying a chemical peel immediately after needling to induce further inflammation thus more results.

A series of 3 to 10 Micro-Needle Peels are performed monthly to achieve the desired final results. Each treatment requires the depth of the needle to be adjusted to the area of the face treated and the depth of the problem treated. Crows feet are only 0.5 mm but deep acne scarring and wrinkles, especially on the lips, are up to 2.5 mm. The Dermapen adjusts from 0.5mm to 2.5mm and easily treats hard to get areas such as eyelids, lips and ear lobes. Each treatment will go deeper with a stronger acid peel applied. The number of procedures required depends on the severity of the problem and the healing properties of each individual patient.
