  1. If I scar easily and maybe heal slow( I think I heal slow ) Maybe because of accutane 2 years ago.. Is it then GAME OVER for me, to just fade my scars or made them a bit better looking with some treatments are needling /dermaroller,dermapen,dermastamp,single) a total no go? even with a small needle length?
  2. Hi, I'm new to this site - just wanting some advice/help regarding acne scars on my face. I've suffered from severe acne for about 10 years - it is now nowhere near as bad as it used to be with just the odd breakout now and again. However I'm left with deep scarring all over my face and it is seriously affecting my self esteem/confidence. I have recently been researching different treatments to see what the best option would be for my type of scars. I've emailed several skin specialis
  3. Hi, I have had quite bad acne for several years, until i got rid of it with accutane. Several years later, my skin tone has now actually gotten better, but I still fight with the scarring it left. I have many icepick-scars in the area of my nose, really deep ones on the temples (box scars, I guess?) and rolling ones on the cheek. The scars that annoy me most are the ones on my cheek (rolling), because it just looks horrible in most lighting conditions. Having had contact with several la
  4. Hi, I had a series of dermarolling treatments in the past and had good success with it, with some hyperpigmentation fading and my skin texture smoothing. I'm now mainly left with some left over hyperpigmentation from previously, as well as new hyperpigmentation from breakouts that I've had since my dermaroller treatment (the breakouts weren't caused by the dermaroller, just to clarify) that I'm looking to try and get rid of. It just frustrates me that any time I get a spot, I seem to be
  5. Hello I have been using the derma roller 1.5 for acne scars for 6 months now, and 5 days ago used Tca face peel 12% and im barely getting any peeling, my question is what should be my wait time, I usually wait 2 months in between to derma roll my face , now that im using 12 % tca face peel how long does it take to heal cause its already been over 2 months since I derma rolled but I don't know if I should since I just just tca face peel, and also I don't think I have sensitive skin at all because

    From the album: Scarring from copper peptides and rolling

    Scarring that got worse from the use of copper peptides and rolling. I first used a 0.5mm roller and approx one year later a 1.5mm roller. I only used the 1.5mm roller 3 or maybe 4 times (this was a few years ago now), The 0.5mm roller i used maybe 10 times or so. I always waited a month or more between using the roller, except once with the 0.5 roller where i waited maybe 2 or 3 weeks. I used the strongest CP that was available (if i remember correctly), bought from Skin Biology. At
  7. Hi all, Recently I ordered and used owndoc 0.5mm, 1.5mm dermarollers and 1.5mm derma stamp. Because I roll aggressively my face gets covered in blood and blood creeps into behind the rollers and stamps needles (Please see the photo). They recommend to use plant sprayer to clean them. With the 0.5mm roller I didn't use the plant sprayer, just washed it under warm water, but blood didn't come of I even used small brush with soap. Then when I used 1.5mm roller I used plant sprayer every tim
  8. Someone been on Accutane and have succes with needling treatment ?? of course 6 month at least after you ended the accutane ..
  9. I am putting in tags and hope that helps help find this if the post bears fruit. I know there have been a lot of posts on this already but so far I only found really old threads. I've searched around the site and what came up are a lot of people asking for basic advice (I'll be fair, I need it too) without having their questions answered. Background--three cycles of Accutane, three years of Aldactone, usage of topicals now and then (like benzoyl peroxide) overnight, saggy inelastic skin
  10. Hi All, I've never posted or replied any threads here but I've been observing for quite awhile. First of all, my acne scars are not severe... but I hate when they look very noticeable especially when I put make up on so I've been looking for the most effective way to get rid of them. I've been interested in the needling methods... but I hadn't found any websites that really showed the genuine results from real people until this blog that I'm going to show you. It is written in Thai, I'm sorr
  11. Hi all! I've been off accutane for 9 months. I had it in my head that you had to leave it 6 months before considering scar treatment, so left it longer just to be on the safe side. Today I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon about my acne scarring. He has suggested 3 treatments using the official derma roller, followed by one chemical peel at the end. I'm happy with this treatment plan. However, during the consultation the surgeon said "you've been off accutane for 12 months yes??
  12. Check out the photos of my current acne scarring. Would needling result in an effective (and cost effective) improvement in my scars? I have done some research on derma rolling, the DermaPen and the new e-DermaStamp (from the original derma roller company). I am leaning towards booking an appointment for an e-dermastamp treatment because I have read several articles about DermaPen and how it can cause micro-tearing. What are your thoughts on this? My story: I had severe acne which was cured
  13. This question has been probably asked a lot but has anyone found any effective topicals to use on scars after dermarolling. Heard retin-A might be too aggressive to use in conjunction with dermarolling. Vitamin C or hylauronic acid maybe? Vitamin e? Just need some opinions on what worked for you to give me an idea of where to start.
  14. (sorry for my english) (and for a long text) Hey everbody! I am writing on acne.org because I am lost and depressed and my life is forever ruined... when I was 17, i start getting really bad acne, because off milk products, weight gainer and SH*TH. that time, I did not think about changing my diet, to a vegan I just thought I was unlucky. when I was about 19 I began Accutane, and back then I didn't know the side effects besides dry lips,skin.. I am 22 know an have scars on my temples an chee
  15. The pictures below are the result of the first dermapen treatment Hi everyone, I have been wondering around this site and on youtube for the past few years trying to find out how to get rid of my rolling and boxcar scars on my cheeks. I was an inch away from having a CO2 laser done but I my mind kept telling me to try the dermaroller first due to how expensive it was I made a pledge to myself that once I find out something that works I will give back that knowledge. After sev

    Dermaroller Advice Needed

    After months of looking through this forum, I realise that the dermaroller topic has been done to death, but I haven't really found the information I'm looking for... so here goes. A little bit of history about myself. I suffered from cystic acne mainly on my forehead between the ages of 11-13 and have continued to have the odd breakout now and again, although not nearly as severe as my early teens. I'm almost 21 now, and have been left with rolling, boxcar, and icepick scars... most of my s
  18. Hi guys, I decided to give skin needling a chance. Recently I got my second subscision and I think my deepest scars aren`t that harsh anymore, so I now want to improve the skin texture and also smooth the rest of my mild to moderate scarring. I tried to use the forum seach, but it`s either not working or did it wrong. I would be very greatful if you can refer me to a legit source where I can see the basics.

  20. Would needling or chemical peels would improve those type of scars??? or any treatment that you think would be helpful? thanks!
  21. I have very bad skin texture and alot of it have been due to these hard yellow plugs (comedomes i think?). They don't go away on their own and I have to squeeze them out (bad I know) but they get refilled again. Once squeezed, little holes are left behind which I think are icepicks. They're all over my forehead and cheeks and you can see them in the pictures. I'm currently starting tretinoin (Retin A) to see if it helps and was wondering if any of you with experience with these plu
  22. Hi guys! Won't bore you with my acne history.. if you'd like to know, check out my roaccutane log from last year. I thought i'd start a log of my scar treatment and hope to get pictures up... although I will admit I have yet to take any pictures of my scars as I find it really hard to do as I am so self conscious. Today was the first day I have ever sought any treatment for my acne scars. I have mild-moderate scarring on my temples and left hand cheek. I am having dermarolling done by a pro

  24. Hi folks, I am someone who is yet to try skin needling for my indented acne scars and have spent a lot of time reading various topics on this forum and other internet sites over the past few days to try and educate myself on the subject. It seems that some people have yielded some really good results from either derma rolling or derma stamping – skin needling, if you will. Now, it would seem to me that in order to maximise the results that you can achieve – you should do other things in ac
  25. Hi, First time poster, What kind of dermaroller should I buy to help correct my rolling acne scars? I would also hope it would smooth out my wrinkles on my forhead. Can anyone give me suggestions? I am excited to start! I am a middle aged man in his early 50s. In addition, what other products should I start using with it? I don't want to cause more damage so any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
