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.

I think it's better to light your face so your scars are noticeable.

Damnit. I knew I should have done that. I usually light my face with the leds it brings them out nicely. I'll do that next treatment!

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.

Not too sure. But i'd say it is important for maximizing results...

 

check out these needling scar success threads: lammarr Liquid_Ocelot Munsoned

 

3 days 100%. I roll on Saturdays as is pertains for my job schedule. I'll be good 100% tomorrow, Tuesday. Though since I did a  15% TCA PEEL I will be peeling a tad

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?

Well, what kind of scars do you have? And I think dermaneedling and tca peels are proabably one of the easiest things to do at home for scars and overall texture. I don't even use numbing cream and I get lots of bleeding... check out owndoc for instructions and tca peels on youtube. 

 

It's hard to explain but I first you the 1.5m roller and roll my whole face, that kind of numbs my whole face then I'll use the stamp (2.0) and target the scars from all angles possible. I'll be updating on July 29 :)

 

Here's a lady that performs the dermastamp + tca peel monthly close to me in San Diego

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.
