  1. Anyone? My topics always seem to have a hard time getting a response on here for some reason...
  2. Hello, I am just curious as to whether Super Cop or CP Serum mixed with Retin-A is more effective for treating ice pick scars and skin texture problems. I know that Super Cop is stronger than CP Serum, but I am wondering if using the CP Serum in conjunction with Retin-A would help matters at all. I just started using copper peptides a few days ago and I know you're supposed to start with the mild CPs and work your way up, so I won't be switching to Super Cop right away (and definitely not Supe
  3. Any more responses? I could really use some more help/input on this before I purchase either of the copper peptide products.
  4. Supposedly it's when copper peptides cause the skin to look a lot more aged and wrinkled. Most of the accounts I've heard of people that have experienced this are people that have used the stronger SkinBiology brand copper peptides. I figure they probably overused the product, but I still don't want to take the risk of using that brand if I don't have to.
  5. Hey guys, I'm interested in trying out copper peptides for my acne scarring...BUT, I've read instances of people getting the "uglies" from the more powerful line of SkinBiology CP products and this has me a bit leery of using their products. So my question is....could I use another brand that's milder than the SkinBiology products and still have decent results? I was looking into these two products: http://www.svbeautysupplies.com/servlet/the-3228/Dermapro-Humectant-Copper-Peptide/Detail
  6. Can anyone else confirm that needling is no good for hypertrophic scars, though? Like I said before, I'm pretty sure my scars wouldn't be considered hypertrophic, but I want to be certain that needling is no good for those types of scars just to be on the safe side.
  7. I did a ton of research before I dermarolled and everything I read says 1.5mm dermaroller is the minimum length because anything smaller will not go deep enough to stimulate collagen production. The smaller length needles like the size you purchased are used so that your topicals could penetrate better. You can roll everyday with smaller lenghts. If you are using a needle length of 1.5mm or longer, then you should roll once every 6 weeks or like someone on here said you can wait longer but neve
  8. No bleeding. Just moderate redness for a bit and peeling over the next 2-3 days. I've taken a laser to the face for my scars in the past, so compared to that the needling is paradise. @ clambak3 - You'd be surprised. Some people use them MORE OFTEN than that with no problems. But like I said, it wouldn't be weekly on a long term basis, either. Just for about two weeks in a row and that's it. IF I were to go that route, that is. I'll probably end up just rolling every 3-4 weeks.
  9. Yeah, I was gonna get a 0.5 mm roller until I read that they aren't as effective on scars. Also, I was pondering on using my 1.0 mm roller once a week for maybe a week or two in a row and then laying off for several weeks, but I don't want to do more harm than good, either. But I have pretty thick skin so that's why I was thinking of doing it this way.
  10. Gotcha. Are you seeing any results with your rolling, a.p.?
  11. Okay, so I've used my roller once so far. I definitely can notice a slight difference on my skin even after the first roll. Nothing extremely major, but I can see it potentially helping. But am I supposed to have some skin peeling after the needling? I figure this is a normal thing in the collagen restoration process, but I want to be sure.
  12. I see. My roller came in the mail today. It's a 1.0 mm so I figure using it for about 10 minutes with medium pressure should be sufficient? It's primarily just on my cheeks that I'll be using it, not my entire face.
  13. Bump. Still wanting to know how hard you guys use the roller on your skin. Gently? Roughly? Please let me know. I would also like to know how long you roll as well.
  14. Thanks for the input, guys. @ Liquid_Ocelet - I just ordered a roller for the time being since it seems to be easier to find a good one for cheap in comparison to the stamps. But I may consider a stamp in the near future, though. As far as replacing the needling device goes, right now I'm in the process of waiting to hear back from a recent job interview since I'm currently not employed. But they should get back to me next week, and if the news is positive then replacing it would not be an
