Has your dermatologist approved of home rolling?

Recommended Posts

I am going to my Dermatologist next month and asking him if rolling at home is ok. The thing is, I am on retin a cream and doxycycline. I was wonder what your derms thought of derma rolling?

I have pretty severe acne scarring and redness and have tried fractional c02 laser already. I want to buy the 1.5mm White Lotus roller.

My dermatologist wasn't familiar with it (I asked years ago) but I asked a facialist who works in a spa and she was totally against home rolling. She wanted me to purchase sessions with her (total cost $1000). If they are offering it at their office, they most likely will say home rolling is a bad idea. I've been doing it for years and have never had any issues. I have recently started stamping because I want to focus on one area and I think it works better because you can get those needles exactly where you want them.

What size do you use? Are you on any creams or antibiotics?

I use 1.5mm stamp. It's recommended to use Vitamin A and Vit. C. Right now I am using vitamin A(skincare cosmetics: Retinol Cream) and Coconut oil. I used to use Vit C. but it makes my skin break out so I don't use it anymore.

 

If you decide to roll/stamp, do not roll/stamp your nose! The skin on the nose doesn't heal the same as the rest of the skin so you risk scarring that area!

By the way, I was on minocycline for awhile but decided not to roll until I was off the meds. Didn't know if it would affect my skin and didn't want to risk more scarring.

I think retina would be fine. People on here use it all the time while rolling. Not sure about your meds though.
