Chloasma and the 540-needle dermaroller
« on: January 03, 2012, 07:12:16 PM »
Can you please explain the difference between 540 needle titanium needle vs 192 high-grade medical stainless steel micro needles.

Does the needle type affect the final result?

All my spots came back and then some more, basically got far worse then what I started out with as I have stopped doing glycolic/lactic/TCA peel,

I have been on derma roller for 1 yr now,

Did the spots come back because I stopped the peels? I know that you have to keep up with the peels to maintain  a clear complexion. (I had pregnancy mask that never went away after having a baby).

Why did the spots come back?

I was using from Jan -April the 192 high-grade medical stainless steel micro needles,

then from April to December using the 540 titanium needle on the face.

After reading your comprehensive website info that is really wrong to use the 540 needle tool.

Yesterday went back to 192 high-grade medical stainless steel micro needles. I am starting the whole process all over again.

I feel my skin was more clear when I use the one with the less needles and got worse when I started using the one with the more needles.

Can you please clarify.

Because of my face looks so hideous/ugly I have lost self confidence, I am self loathing,  somewhat depressed.

So from the website I learned that more needles are not good. I wish I knew about this website back in April.

Please help.

Thank you for your time S.V.

To be honest I do no think that the reoccurrence of your Chloasma has anything to do with the number of needles. It is more due to quitting the acid peels or exposing your skin unprotected to the sun.

   Please read my answer #4 where I explain why hyperpigmentation very often returns:

   Unfortunately, in many cases, lifetime maintenance is necessary to keep hyperpigmentation at bay.


  Hyperpigmentation in the epidermis is quite easy to remove but hyperpigmentation in the dermis (deeper part of the skin) is a big problem.

I wrote about the 540-needle roller here:

(they are not needles, they are knives..)
