When you say scars, do you mean post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (red marks) or actual acne scars that are pitted? People often confuse the two.

Julian, maybe try waiting two months before needling again and see if there are changes to the scars until then. It could very likely be caused by needling but it could  also be from something else. If you've had success with needling in the past it's probably not a cause for concern, just make sure you keep a close eye for any more hypopigmentation and carefully take pictures to document progress from now on.

You want to get the clear-white one. The texture pad is essential because it makes it looks like human skin...otherwise it looks unnatural. I would order the texture pad first, try it with the latex and if it doesnt work that way, try the eyelash glue with it instead. You need to gently tap the texture pad over the latex/eye glue when it's 90% dry and leave it there for about 30 seconds and VERY slowly take it off.

 

Yes, you can wear makeup over it..but it needs to be translucent or it ruins the illusion of a scar cover up. Airbrush makeup works well and so does mineral makeup. Liquid and cream foundations don't work at all. Dermaflage is great if you have deep rolling scars or jagged boxcars scars, but depending on where they are on the face they can look unnatural when you smile or talk. I use it on my deepest scar on my cheek and don't have a problem with it. If you are attempting to cover several scars or scars that are shallow it definitely won't look good.

Oh I see, well liquid latex is much thicker than eye lash glue which makes it harder to work with. It's stickier, takes forever to dry and is opaque and difficult to blend. I don't like it at all. Eye lash glue on the other hand has a thin consistency since it's diluted, is very easy to blend and looks more natural. Are you able to get your hands on DUO eye lash glue? I haven't tried other brands but that one works well for me. The other option is to try and dilute your liquid latex to make it thinner and easier to work with.

 

I'm not sure the specifics of the cosmetic law you're talking about, but there is someone on Ebay selling just the skin texture pad with the tools and not the actual Dermaflage scar product. I would think you'd be able to purchase it since it's not a makeup product itself. 

 

As far as the airbrush makeup goes, you can just use a little bit of translucent powder or a mineral makeup...VERY lightly dust over the area to make it look a little more natural. There's a learning curve to doing it just right, but it's possible. 

hmm the thing is we have a cosmetic law in my country so its not possible me to order something like dermaflage  how did you make the liquid latex work and what is air brushing thankss

Needling could do one of two things, either potentially help restore some pigment (not completely) or cause more hypopigmentation. You could always try it again and see what happens, it's hard to say what the reaction might be.
