  1. I am caucasian and still have hyperpigmentation from acne which I had 7 years ago :/... I lost hope that it will ever go away.
  2. Thanks Quirky Fox ! It's true, I'm a huge dermaroller fan. Can't wait to do new sessions in October and see even more improvement. I agree with you, all this procedures are delicate for your skin and there is a good reason why original dermaroller doesn't sell long needles for home use! If you want original, you can only get it done professionally. I had 3 treatments so far. My dermatologist actually told me 3 is maximum, since they believe this is all you need and your skin isn't getting any b

  4. In my experience sleep is not connected with acne. I had very bad insomnia last summer, which went on for 3 months. Sometimes I couldn't sleep for days. I don't need to say I was also very stressed out because of it. BUT my skin was perfectly clear, no spots. And now I sleep normally 8 hours per night and my skin looks terrible again! Maybe I shouldn't sleep
  5. Yeah I have the exact same problem from a certain angle my skin looks horrible... I think that now I automatically adjust the position of my body and face so that the light doesn't shine on my face like that. That's the only way I know... Or wearing a hat, that my face is in shadow. And about scar fading/helaing... I had bad acne when I was 17-18. Now I'm 24 and they haven't filled or improved on their own (dermaroller helped me a bit!). And I'm still getting new ones every time I get a cy
  6. Hi fleurverte, Dermarolling is a great option, but it is very very important that you skin is acne free when you start rolling. Any active acne can cause new scars. My scars are very similar to yours and dermaroller made them less visible. I highly recommend it! Go for it!
  7. Hi Nairai, I know exactly how you feel, hiding your face from the light that would make your scars more noticeable. I have the same obsession. And overall I find your story quite similar to mine. Even though I don't break out any more, I still occasionally get some spot or cyst that leaves me with scar (my skin is super sensitive to scarring after Accutane) and it makes me go crazy! Unfortunately this is the thing we have to deal with . As you probably know already, there is no such mira
  8. Of course you can roll on your scarfree skin as well. It would be really difficult to target just the problematic spots. I had 3 dermaroller treatments done by my dermatologist this winter and he rolled all my cheeks and chin even though I have scars mainly only around mouth area and lower part of cheeks. Some people roll completely healthy skin, to postpone or reverse aging effect. So don't worry, roll, be patient and good luck with the results!
  9. Do you think there is any correlation between how many hours you sleep per night and the overall success of the treatment? I read everywhere how collagen is renewed when we are sleeping and that "beauty sleep" (8 hours per day) is very important... But i usually sleep only 4-6 hours and it's enough for me. I can see some progress now that my 3 treatments are over but i wonder if it could be even better if had better sleeping habits.
  10. Is it normal that you scars get worse before they gets better if you are rolling with longer needles? I changed from 1.5mm to 2.0mm and I noticed my scars got deeper and more noticiable again... Now i'm afraid that I ruined all the progress I've made with 1.5mm so far. Any thoughts on that?
  11. hi guys, i would really appreciate your opinion about my dermaroller procedures. i've already had 2 treatments with 1.5mm done by my dermatologist - in november and january... everthing went great, i really saw improvement - my cheeks were smoother, some of my scars almost completely disappeared and i couldn't be more happy... BUT now after my 3rd treatment last week obivously something went wrong. this time she roller with 2.0mm and everything seemed ok until my redness went away and i
  12. Well I pierced my tounge and everything was OK... I even asked my dermatologist and she said there should be no problem
  13. Accutane makes wonders . I wish you good luck!
  14. I'm on 10mg for 7 months now and the only side effect I have is dry lips. I agree, it's good idea to ask your derm what is going on with your skin.
