  1. This is a great idea, wish this came up when I used to frequent these boards. It's easy to isolate yourself when dealing with scarring. You should have an actual meetup in london, I would come to that.
  2. I appreciate the response. Better late than never. I have another question, what brand of Dermapen did you purchase? It was called the Dermica Pen when I bought it, it's the official Dermapen it was just renamed for some european countries. I wouldn't go for an unreliable brand, will probably cause more damage than good. Derma stamps are fine to be honest, it's the same thing. That's what I used at the time. can't really comment on other brands. Just look for those purple ones on eB
  3. Hey, sorry for the late reply. It took about 2 years to see the majority of my results. Just a quick update, I haven't needled in over 2 years now and my skin is the best it has ever been so I can confidently say the results are permanent.
  4.     Hey sorry for the late reply. I can't see the pictures anymore. Update me on how it's going.   No I didn't really stretch the skin. I used to treat the entire face, saw an overall improvement in skin quality.
  5. If you're referring to Intracel, I had 3 passes done. But it was for seborrheic dermatitis, I didn't have much or any scarring at that point. I haven't treated my skin since Intracel which was around 6 months ago, and my skin is actually looking better than it did a few weeks after the treatment. I can't speak for everybody, but my results are definitely permanent. I think what they're referring to in those studies are wrinkles, skin quality, texture and things of that nature. Clearly you w

Clearly you will have to maintain that regardless of how you're treating your skin as aging is an ongoing process. Edit: I should note that this doesn't me

  8. I would apply Terproline once a day after treatment until skin is completely healed. Beyond that I don't use any topicals. You can apply it before or after LED, it doesn't really matter. I do LED before just to get it out the way.
  9. No, I don't stamp with 0.5mm inbetween. I think I done it early on once or twice but quickly stopped. Stamping too frequently is probably the most common reason why people don't get results. I don't understand why people overlook this important step and are confused when they don't get satisfactory results. Never used retin-a or copper peptides. I hate the idea that your skin has to look worse before it looks better. If you have sensitive skin like me I really recommend Post Laser Cream by M
  10. Thanks for the advice. I considered just a derma stamp at first but ended up going with this and I'm not too sure why. Just the way this works seems like it would be more effective than me feebly stamping my skin, it's hard to explain. But do you think the speed of the needles going in and out "not fast enough" will really matter if I use the Dermapen with the technique I mentioned in my original post? That being, I'm not actually moving the pen along the skin, just holding it there? And in what
  11. Just a word of advice, I wouldn't use that Dermapen. I've never used that particular brand myself but I can just tell from the pricepoint that it's going to be of questionable quality. Original Dermapen costs at least 500 euros, you need to be careful with this technology as you can easily cause more damage. If the needles aren't going in and out fast enough it can rip the skin. If I was you i'd ditch that and just go with a dermastamp. It's basically the same thing but risk of ripping the skin
  12. Well the first thing you're doing wrong is stamping every 2 weeks. I would recommend once a month at most for 1mm. 6 weeks would be even better. Skin healing is a complex process, don't try and rush things. Allowing your body to heal is just as important as the treatment itself. In my experience there's needling too much, too little and the right amount. You're better off stamping too little and work your way up to the right amount rather than stamping too much which can cause additional da
  13. Hi Liquid_Ocelot, Thank you for making this thread and sharing your experience. I am feeling inspired by your post and a couple others who have recently claimed success with dermastamping. I have some questions for you. You said you had giant boxcar scars on the left side of your face, and now your scars are pretty much resolved. Are you saying the texture and outline of those scars have returned to normal as well? I have some wide indented boxcars on my left cheek. I've undergone Total FX t
  14. Actually those pictures make me cringe, the lighting is horrible. My skin looks a lot better in normal lighting. I'm still using Intracel because i've found a winning formula, at this point I can gauge exactly how my skin is going to react to the treatment. Topical. I don't know exactly how much I use, I just make sure I get good coverage. Probably around 3/4 of a vial.
  15. I mentioned all of this in my OP. I don't have any experience with owndoc dermapens so can't say.
