In Topic: How I Got Rid Of My Acne Scars

19 April 2014 - 02:18 PM

Hi Liquid, thanks for the great post. 

 

I have been trying to get rid of my scars for so many months now. My progress has been very slow. I have been trying 1.5 rolling, but in the last few months I started stamping every 4 weeks. I was also doing 0.5 rolling between 1.5s. But after reading more about it evidence suggest doing 0.5 in between is not a good idea since even 0.5 needs at least 4 weeks to start producing collagen. Besides it hasn't added much improvement. Do you roll or stamp with 0.5 in between 1.5 sessions? Also I think I ll increase 1.5 frequency to 6 weeks from 4.

 

Have you used Retin-A? again I am not sure its doing anything for me. I am also using copper peptides daily (mornings) Vitamin C few evenings a week not sure if they are doing anything either. Do you use or have you ever used copper peptides? 

 

I think the best and safest topicals for me so far have been the natural oils, such as argan, rose hip, vitamin E, they are a bit shiny but my skin feels better with them also I think they increase healing time, could be because they keep my skin moist..

 

Thanks all..

Yeah i used a scar cream on some excisions that were performed and still red post op. I could not keep using it due to it causing clogged pores and break me out in the area the cream was applied only. I am sure you will see some results with weeks to months to use if it doesn't cause any bad reactions, it all depends on the skin type of each person. 

 

Which cream did you use? The ones I mentioned are the most known ones, I am surprised no one mentions using a scar cream with dermarolling I wonder if they would be more effective then other topics. 

 

There are so many topic and its almost impossible to try them all. Finding the best solution is a big challenge, it is frustrating. I am currently trying retin A, vitamin C, copper peptides and natural oils. I wonder if I should just use a good scar cream that works instead. 

 

If anyone has long term experience or success with any scar cream please share.

 

Thanks..


In Topic: Genuine Derma Roller

No one on this forum, besides Quirky Fox, has tried Genuine Derma Roller treatments? Really?

 

I have for about 6 treatments. I tried two different very expensive Harley Street clinics, they were supposed to be one of the best (after doing lots of review reading) but I haven't seen good results besides they were so aggressive on some occasions blood was flowing down to my neck. Also treatments were incredibly painful even with numbing cream (they used genuine dermarollers).

 

I then decided to study the techniques did lots of reading about rollers, stamps watched videos, read some more and started rolling and stamping myself. I recently started getting some results. I can very confidently say that I can roll and stamp much better than those aestheticians. 

dude name the clinic

 

First clinic was Freedom Health, 60 Harley street (Lee Garrett), second was Revere, 100 Harley street (Dr. Sach Mohan)


In Topic: Derma Rolling - BP - Retin A - Copper Peptides - Vitamin C serum

Hi I am in the same boat.

 

Does any one know what is the best regimen to benefit from copper peptides, retin A, vitamin C and natural oils like argan oil, rose-hip oil etc. 

 

Currently in the mornings I am applying copper peptide serum after 15 mins. argan and rose-hip oil after 15mins sunscreen, in the evenings dry brushing vitamin c, wait for half an hour retin A, wait for half an hour argan, rose-hip oil. After rolling with 0.5 every week I immediately apply vitamin C (stings allot but I can bare it) wait for 15 mins and tiny bit of retin A (redness stays much longer) wait for 15 mins infadolan cream. 

 

I am not sure if I should apply copper peptides after rolling instead of vit C.

 

I would like to know if this is a good regimen and if anyone else has a better suggestion. 

 

I purchased all creams from owndoc except the oils.

 

Many thanks..


In Topic: Dermarolling With Retin A, Infadolan And Topical Vitamin C

Also I am desperate to get rid of my scars. I have been rolling for about 15 months and I only recently started seeing some improvement. 

Wow, that's a lot of time and you noticed only slight improvement? sad.png I'm on the same boat as you but I was hoping i'd see some nice results in 6 months. I started rolling/stamping my face last month but I use the stamp much more often. I did a lot of research and the general consensus is that dermastamp is better for deep scars, it gives you more control over the damage and it's less painful. I feel like the roller is not doing anything for me and it hurts a lot.

 

Yes but my scars were very deep in a large area, also every body is different. What you eat, age, your technique, frequency, topical creams they all count. Its been a learning curve for me, I suppose if I knew what I know now at the beginning I am sure my results would be different and I would have never gone to clinics. 

 

For deep scars I understand it's best to use 1.5mm dermaroller and stamp together. Roll your face then stamp it with the right technique. There are lots of good videos. Also have a look at owndoc forums. At first It looks like nothing is happening but if you do everything right you will start seeing results. My improvements were around 2 - 5% few months ago after each roll, now probably around 10%

 

I recently started using Retin A 0.1%, coper peptides, vitamin C. Hopefully I will see better improvement. 

 

Good luck..
