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? 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.
