Alternating dermarolling and stamping
« on: May 10, 2013, 06:51:36 PM »
Hey guys... I have some concerns:

1.  Would it be okay to dermaroll 1.5 mm every 4 weeks and dermastamp 1.5mm every 4 weeks 2 weeks apart from each other?  Or is it more advisable to dermastamp immediately after dermarolling? 

2.  When dermarolling and dermastamping immediately afterwards, should one still dermastamp 6-8 times on a scar or should this amount be reduced?  By doing this it seems that the density would grow to 200+250 cm^2 or 450 cm^2.  Perhaps one should dermastamp less times when performed immediately after dermarolling?

Thank you so much for your help :D.  I really appreciate it!!

Ad1. You can but it is better to make the frequency 3 weeks apart (not 2 weeks apart). Stamp, 3 weeks later roll, 3 weeks later stamp etc.

When you combine a dermaroller and a dermastamp during one session, it is easier to first stamp the scars and then roll the whole area. You can also first roll and then stamp but the scars usually get red and swollen after dermarolling and that makes them less "visible" to precisely target them by stamping.

Yes, you can slightly reduce the number of stamps and rolls when you combine it. Stamp only 6 times.
You do not have to stamp and roll your entire face in one go if you prefer. Stamp and roll just one cheek, when it heals, stamp and roll the other, when it heals stamp and roll the forehead etc.
