Dermarolling for a lip injury/scar - dog bite
« on: March 03, 2011, 02:05:41 PM »
Is it safe or recommended to roll a recent dented scar on my lower lip? My puppy bit a smallish (not tiny) chunk off my lip & now I have a hole in it :( If yes, could you please advise on needle length & session frequency? I would appreciate  a prompt reply! Thank you.

If the scar is recent, you should first let it completely heal.

  Remodeling/maturation of a scar takes a long time. The scar will likely improve by itself.

   

  If it heals indentedly, use the single needles to needle it. It is a much more targeted treatment. The area on and around the lips is extremely sensitive so you will need a numbing cream to be able to handle the needling. Needle it once a month until it improves.
