I have a question (cry for an answer!) that I thought was relevant to this thread.
About 6 months ago, I used a 1.5mm on my stretch marks on my hips. I also used it on my face between my eyebrows (elevens). There were next to no lines there, but I thought I'd do a roll to prevent future ones developing (I'm turning 30).
Well - massive problem. At the next day, the lines between my eyes, which weren't there before, we're red and noticeable. I thought they'd go away with time, but they haven't, they are still there and red. I am horrified.
I have been sporadically using retin a on it. 0.05 per cent which has done next to nothing.
I was wondering if you could give me some advice as to what to do next because I don't know where to go to resolve this (if it can be resolved). My only thoughts were to bump up to a retin a of 0.1 or try laser.
Also, what do you think caused this. I did do it moderately hard as I thought holes to the skin was what we were after. Is is possible I was too rough with the skin and agitated it, thus the lines show up.
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Ps. Actually they're not as red anymore, just more like noticeable lines, but still a bit red. Thnx.
