Microneeding Needling The Derminator Dermastamping Thread - all things microneedling in Scar treatments Posted May 25, 2016 I've decided to jump on board this derminator train and ordered mine today. I must have had about 6 or 7 dermarolling/dermapen plus TCA cross sessions with Dr. Chu at Hammersmith over the years, but it's very hard for me to gauge what, if any, results I've achieved. The TCA cross I'm sure has made certain scars shallower, yet overall I'm not sure how effective the dermapen has actually been. Dr. Chu performed subcision on me once for some of the deeper scars, which I think helped somewhat. But it's always been hard to judge, because I have very sensitive skin which seems to look a thousand times worse some days than on others... it doesn't feel very 'stable' at all. I apply isotrexin every night, on Dr. Chu's recommendation, to try to deal with all the congestion going on, but after almost a year I can't say it's had any noticeable effect. My skin tone and texture is absolutely awful... clogged pores, marks, and general blotchiness everywhere in addition to ice pick and rolling scars and huge scarred pores over my cheeks. I also have raised scarring on the sides of my chin. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I figure I have nothing to lose by attempting to treat my scarring myself. I'll of course be following instructions closely. To be honest, I don't have very high hopes of substantial improvement, but if I'm able over time to achieve any kind of progress I'll be extremely happy. Meanwhile, I'm also looking into lactic or glycolic peels to see whether they might have any effect on my tone and texture issues. Is anyone else located in the UK able to give a heads up as to trustworthy sources for either? Later on, I'd also maybe like to undertake TCA cross myself, although I'm feeling a bit of a chicken when it comes to that at the moment. Good luck to all.
