Before and after each use

 

3.) How long had/have you been doing treatment?

4 years but stopped in 2012 and started again in 2014.

 

4.) How old were your scars when you first started?

like 5 years

*And last but not least, do you believe dermarolling/ dermastamping is worth it?

Yes, I began this in 2011 and kinda stopped in 2012 since I wasnt seeing any results. I started again in 2014 but began numbing my face before stamping/rolling. It really helped because I was able to be more aggressive than ever before and felt no pain at all. I'm really happy and cant wait for next month for my next needling session.

 

I also use LED lights and a little bit of suctioning after needling. I massage my face three times a week. I also follow a healthier diet than ever before.

I've done more than 5 dermaroller treatments since last year and I have not had any of these effects. Nothing negative.

you said you had this done 5 years ago. How long after that treatment did you first notice the negative effects?
