Dermaroller for Stretch Mark Review - New York, NY

Hi ! So I have some rather annoying stretch marks...

Hi ! So I have some rather annoying stretch marks on my upper thigh/lower waist so to say ! Although not extremely visible I would definitely love to get rid of them ! My coworker recently told me about the roller and after researching I thought I would give it a try ! I started on Thursday so today was day 3 for me ! It's a little painful/uncomfortable feeling but bearable ! I have seen very minimal puncture wounds/bleeding as you will see from the pics - i plan on using the roller for 7 days straight then rest for a day or two then so on and so on - I mean for $30 couldn't hurt to try right lol and I have seen some b4 and afters and this thing seems to really work !! Fingers crossed lol I will post a pic every week after tenement - I've also read you must be patient !! Let's see ^_^ also the area gets red and puffy after using but this is normal after all these are tiny needles !

Am I rolling to much ?

So I've been researching a lot more and I'm reading how they say for best results to wait at least a week each time I roll to allow healing does anyone know this to be true ?

Severe itching

I had severe itching these last 2-3 days and I have decided to let heal what I must have created with my rolling =] I am taking the itching as a good sign and will start the rolling again once the itching subsides - when I look at the area really well I can see what the rolling did - it created a bunch of tiny lil cuts over my stretch marks and I am assuming new skin could possibly be growing over "hence the itching "lol so I actually think it would make sense to allow the area to heal some befor I start rolling again - research says it could take up to 4 weeks before you see any results ! Anyway I will definately update any progress on this !

2 weeks and I see a 65%

Improvement !! It has been two weeks since I started my rolling and I am amazed at the results !
I can't wait to see a month from now ! You will be able to see from the pic my birth mark so you can see it's really the same area ! I am amazed honestly didn't expect to see results and especially not so soon ! I rolled straight for 7 days and then gave it a break I am adding cocoa butter and vitamin C daily - I did actually roll 2 after my first 7 days straight

If you're using a 1.5mm roller, you are supposed to use it once every 5 weeks. A 2mm can only be used every 6 weeks, so you are rolling way too often. You are not giving your skin a chance to react.

Also, you mention itching; this is usually part of healing but just wanted to make sure you're disinfecting the skin before treatment, and the tools before and after?

You don't mention what depth needles you're using, so because you're treating stretchmarks I'm assuming that you're using 1.0, 1.5 or 2.0mm needles. You're rolling far too frequently. There's an inflammation and healing process that needs to occur in order for rolling to work, and you're interfering with that process each time you roll too early. With 2.0mm, you shouldn't be rolling more than once every 2-3 weeks. 1.5mm - every 2 weeks. 1.0mm can be used weekly, depending on the skin being treated.

HI! Ive been doing the roller. I was actually shown how to do it by a doctor(I work with one) and from my understanding the more aggressive you are with the rolling the more time you need to wait in-between each treatment. If you are less aggressive you can more often. Hope that helps :) I did 2 treatments one time in small sections where i actually scabbed up at one time so i had to wait longer for the area to heal.

I always equate itching to healing which is a good sign, then you will see results. 

Thanks again for sharing this with us!!

It will take time and several treatments but it will start to work eventually I've done quit a few and I'm seeing a little bit of a difference. Sometimes when doing things like this the results are so slow and you dont actually see or remember what you really looked like before but its actually working kinda like loosing weight and gaining weight over a period of time.
