In Topic: Dermarolling Only On Scarred Areas?

Why don't you do some glycolic acid peels? It'll get rid of red marks, freckles, brown spots,etc.  I've had professional peels done before at a high % so I was able to start with 30% gylcolic acid with no problems. I didn't peel at all and read that most people don't peel from this type of peel. There's no downtime. My skin was red for a day...your skin may react differently though. It takes about 5 peels to get rid of red marks...I only did 2 peels but I've been getting other types of peels for awhile so that's probably why it worked so fast on my skin.

I don't see a problem with that. It's just like dermastamping except the needles are on a roller. .5mm won't help with scarring, only product penetration. You have to roll with at least a 1.5mm to help with scars. Inbetween 1.5mm sessions, use your .5mm to help with product penetration. That's what Dr. Fernandez does with his patients.

In Topic: Indented Box Scar Nose - What Is The Solution

Yesterday, 09:33 AM

I did a lot of research on scars and from what I understand the skin on the nose is very delicate and is easily scarred so be careful. The skin on that area heals very slowly which is why you're more likely to scar there.  I'd go to a professional. NO DERMAROLLING the nose! It could scar. The nose will not heal properly. I know from experience AND from everything I've read (a little too late in my case).

You're only supposed to roll once every 6 weeks if you're using a 1.5 mm roller. Other than that, there's no limit. You can roll for the rest of your life if you want to. :)

0.2-0.25 mm dermaroller may be used daily or every other day. This size improves the absorption of applied skin care products.

0.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 3 weeks.

0.75 mm dermaroller may be used once every 4 weeks.

1.0 mm dermaroller may be used once a month (every 5-6 weeks).,

1.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 6 weeks.

2.0-2.5 mm dermaroller may be used once every 8 weeks.
