2.5 month old indented scar on nose-too soon to dermaroll?
« on: June 19, 2012, 12:12:43 AM »
Hello-i had a shave biopsy done on 4.5.12 that left an indented scar on the bridge of my nose.  Will dermarollng help it to fill back in?  Is it too soon to start since it was less than 3 months ago?  Picture attached-new to this so a little lost-I just want to restimlate collagen and have this indentation fill back in.

Try a 1.5 mm dermastamp. Start slowly and if it heals well, stamp more densely. Nose skin is a bit unpredictable because there is basically just cartilage below. If the scar were for example on the forehead, microneedling would be more likely to improve it however it is worth trying on the nose as well.
