dermaroller or dermastamp for scars?
« on: September 04, 2012, 05:46:28 PM »
I have some stretch marks on my knees (only 2 on each knee) and a very old scar on my knee as well. I don't know whether I should use a dermastamp or a dermaroll to improve them. If anyone has used both, which one is less painful and easier to use?

Use a 2 mm dermastamp (the skin is thick in that area) and apply 0.1% Tretinoin cream right afterwards (we sell it) to help remove the hardened collagen scar tissue.

You do not have to insert the full length of the needles. First concentrate on the surface of the scar, later go deeper.

If the 2 mm size scares you, buy a 1.5 mm dermastamp. It will probably be enough.

You do not need the vit. C or copper peptides.

Keep the stamped area moisturized. Apply Tretinoin and then something moisturizing on top of it. Preferably some oil. Just a little is enough. You can also buy our Infadolan ointment for stamping afercare.

Thank you so much for your help Sarah :) What do you think is more painful, a dermastamp or a dermaroller?

A dermastamp is less painful than a dermaroller. Read here why:

It especially applies to the dermastamp with 35 needles. We also sell now a dermastamp with 80 needles.
