@aurevoir771 Got a quick question for you DC-Girl. You said you went off retin-a before doing any treatment. How long were you off of retin-a before you did your first treatment? YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE OFF RETIN-A AT LEAST 7-10 DAYS BEFORE YOU DO A PEEL.
Also, did you start with TCA peel first or dermastamp? DON'T KNOW, DOESN'T MATTER. STAMPING/NEEDLING IS GOOD FOR THICK SCARS, OLD SCARS AND TCA GIVES QUICK RESULTS FOR NEWER SHALLOW SCARRING.
I used retin-a out of curiosity for 6 days, but dropped it right away because it was only doing harms to my skin. I think vitamin A products in general can do more harms than goods when it comes to dealing with scarring.
NO, IT'S NOT THE VITAMIN A THAT'S THE PROBLEM, IT'S THE SYNTHETIC VERSION THAT THESE GUYS HAVE MANUFACTURED AS RETIN-A THAT'S TOXIC FOR YOU. VITAMIN A IS VERY GOOD FOR YOU. BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE A PROPER DIET THAT GETS YOU PLENY OF VITAMIN A MORE THAN ANYTHING TOPICAL IS GIVING YOU. GIVING UP RETIN-A WAS A GOOD DECISION. BRAVO.
It has been a week since I came off retin-a, and I want to start the treatment ASAP. At the same time, I am scared that my skin is too sensitive at the moment due to vitamin A overdose. Your insight would be greatly helpful. Thanks.
