A Quick and Dirty Survey - For those Dermarolling Please Participate?

Hi all,

could you Please all fill out a survey?

Those of you dermarolling or dermastamping (please state which one you are doing)

1. How long have you been dermarolling or dermastamping?

2. How much percentage-wise improvement in your acne scarring has there been, since started ?

3. Are you using ONLY the dermaroller, or combing it with LED lights?

4. What specific supplements are you taking to help with skin healing?

5. Do you think dermarolling (from your improvements) will make you 100 percent acne scar free?

Just a fun survey. Participate if you like. Just be interesting to see how many people are using this, it seems to be the best acne scar treatment around, with very low side effects. I think this is the answer for alot of acne sufferers but the survey will prove this also. :dance:

1. Early May 09 I did a heavy duty 1mm roll. I had to wait through the summer because

of my fear of UV rays damaging my roll. Toward late summer I had to do some outside

work at an extremely high altitude. Since then I've rolled early Sept and early Nov.

2. I've thought a lot about percentage improvement with me. Its hard to get a percentage.

So from my baseline, where I looked like "The Terminator" at the end of the movie after

doing a chemical peel, to having perfect, flawless skin, I'll say I'm at 30%. Again its hard

to get a true reading. I've had a lot of positive comments from friends.

3. Dermarolling 1mm (once), 1.5mm (twice) ; and LED'S

4. juicing organic raw vegetables twice a day; topical vitamin A (PM) daily; topical vitamin C (AM)

daily; a few vitamin/mineral supplement; a little protein power.

5. My skin will reach a point where I am happy with it... good texture no pot holes, I will be

confident in my appearence. I don't think necessarily I'm looking for "perfection", ie

a person with flawless skin. I think I can hit the 90% improvement mark and be happy.

I've been using 302's "lightning drop" (vitamin C) and also their "a boost".

I didn't want to roll in the summer because of doing outside work up in

the mountains (very high altitude). Was afraid of damaging collegan forming

with UV rays would turn it into scars. But who knows?????????

I'll probably take time off during the summer when rolling just because of

UV exposure. Probably being overcautious, I never liked the feel of sunscreen.

I'm still considering dermastamping. Adella said on another post, which I agree,

there's more room for error with a numbed face. Seems like the stamp would

alleviate that problem. Just set it on target and punch. Seems like there's been

a few reports of damaged skin rolling (bent needles, too much pressure). The

advantage to rolling I see (which is debatable) is the needle enters at an angle,

perhaps once under the epidermis it is rotating in an arc, creating more of a wound under

the skin, which is what were looking for. But who knows???????? For some reason

I like the idea of straight punching. Just seems safer.

Its a skincare line, 302 skincare.

302 was discussed briefly here at acne.org about 4 years ago:

http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Response-...mp;hl=Dr.+Huber

I'm going to post this thread and hope its ok with the moderator:

http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewt...d.php?tid=28855

I learned a lot about skincare reading this.

Dr. Fernandez recommends using the form of vitamin a in "a boost". And

the vitamin C seems ok with my skin. Wish I had more knowledge of what's best

for the skin........ I just used what Dr. Fernandez wrote he was doing, topical a/c.

I think some have used bio-oil, terpoline, green cream, and other topicals and had great results.

do u use the 302 drops at all scoobie?

l;ooks like the one i would order.

where do you order yours from?

thanks very much!

hi honey girl,

I used the 302 drops for a while, but am just using the a and c products now. You

will notice on any thread discussing 302, almost fights breaking out about the

product. Very polarizing views.

My take after using it............ its really powerful, and if you use it follow the

guidelines. Especially the drops, don't use too much, just a tiny tiny amount.

I found I couldn't use the drops, I just couldn't dose correctly. The serum is

much easier as far as not using too much. I think in the long run I'll incorporate

it again, even tonight I was debating it. For now I'll probably stick with what

Fernandez was doing ( a and c topicals). If you do want to use it you should

probably read the above thread (over 100 pages). You almose have to be under

supervision to use it. I read some real knock down, drag outs over this product.

Best wishes to all

Wish I knew more about topicals, and which are best. Right now I use "a boost" and

"lightning drops" made by 302 skincare. Those are the 2 topicals Dr. Fernandez

specifically uses (not 302's), so I just copied what he was doing. Its just vitamin a and c.

302's are non-acidic form, which seemed reasonable when I read about it. For me, they

have a nice feel to my skin, very non-irritating. This is just what I use, there's no real

standard or anything.

you might look also at terpoline, green cream, retin-a, bio-oil (seems like many here like bio-oil).

Retin-a is trickey and my understanding you need to start at a small percentage and work

up.

best wishes

I have been rolling for a year and a couple months.

2. How much percentage-wise improvement in your acne scarring has there been, since started ?

Hard to put a % on it..different scars have improved at different % then other scars..Some scars have not improved much at all while others have improved a tremendous amount. Overall my skin is much better off thou then when I started.

I use the led's in combo with rolling/individual needling.

I take fish oil, vitamin c, msm, grape seed extract, multi vitamin. Nutritious foods and plenty of vegetables are most important thou. And exercise.

I don't know. It has helped and contues to help so I just keep at it.
