Hi,

I will ask this question with deep stretch marks in mind.

The pictures in this study really impressed me: http://www.skinpulse.ch/rtf_pdf_docs/Striae%20J%20Cosm%20Derm.pdf

I know Sarah wrote about using peels with dermaroller before but I am wondering about using the SandPaper. Would be a good idea to use the sandpaper before rolling with the 1,5mm dermaroller and coupled with 0,25mm  dermaroller to increase product absorption?

How about the after care vitamins they used in this study (I believe the vitamins come with the "easy tca peel kit")? And the occlusion with plasting for up to 24 hours? Is there anything we can learn from this study to improve the dermaroller/single needling treatment?

Thanks.

Combining SandPaper (Abrasion) And Peels With Dermaroller and Microneedling

I know about this method and I was planning to write about it but several customers tried it and corresponded with me about this method and they ended up with quite serious hyperpigmentation that did not disappear.

I wanted to think about how to ensure that people will not end up with hyperpigmentation. So far, I have not come across a solution.

You can achieve the same results with dermarolling and needling with a much lower risk of infection or hyperpigmentation.


 

What I recommend for stubborn stretch marks is to apply the A-Ret gel immediately after needling into the individual stretch marks. A-Ret contains retinoic acid. It will trigger peeling.


 

BTW
, this laser centre stole a photo from the sandpaper/TCA peel study, placed them on their website pretending the stretch marks improved due to laser treatment!

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your attention.

Can you clarify a bit what exactly did your customers try? Did they follow the exact protocol outlined above (including the patented easy peel)? Did they just sand papered and used dermaroller?

According to a study I have read, the EasyTCA is the only TCA peel that allows the previous use of a sandpaper.

Thanks a gain.

I have just found an excellent summary of the method: http://www.estetik.com/datamed/Peelings/ENGLISH/Stretch%20marks%20summary.pdf

Edit: at the bottom of the text there is a "post inflammatory hyperpigmentation" protocol
