Thank you for your compliments. Regarding your questions
-Did your pores get smaller because you: single needled/dermastamped them?
Honestly I dont think my pore size has changed. I think now since it's winter, my skin is less oily, thus temporarily decreasing the size of my pores. However I do roll over them and stamp them thoroughly so it could be in fact that THAT's what it is. I also think there was some pigmentation there, which cleared up with my light chemical peels. Search the forums for information regarding peels. I'd say that if you're interested in doing THAT, then do lots and lots of research and start off with weaker peels such as Glycolic Acid (if you have dry-normal skin) or Salycic Acid (Oily Skin like Me) and then work your way up to LOW PERCENTAGE TCA (I haven't gone above 15%) I think this has helped a lot also and enhances the dermarolling.
-Do you still suction your scars? -Do you suction the whole of your face, or just particular scarring?
Yes I still suction my scars and I usually do everything except my forehead except a few spots as my forehead, for the most part, is indent-free. However, I haven't been very consistent with the suctioning mostly because sometimes it leaves light bruising and I work in an office where I can't walk around like that. However I do Roll and stamp thoroughly. I roll my entire face and then stamp my entire face. I think this amount of "trauma" to my face is what has helped me get to the point that I'm at now. What I also do, which Sarah DOES NOT suggest, is put Retin-A on my face DIRECTLY after dermarolling. Because I like the effect that chemical peels gives my skin, it's sorta like a 2 for 1. I get to dermaroll my skin AND get a chemical peel. I dermarolled on Tuesday and my skin is started peeling yesterday (Thursday) lightly. I honestly think that THAT has helped tremendously, the combination of the two. Some people on the forums report that there is too much stinging when placing Retin-A after dermarolling but it doesn't sting me AT ALL. My skin feels however it normally feels after dermarolling. I think it's helped the texture of my skin a lot. I'm nowhere near satisfied though. I expect even great results in mid-late 2013. However I think I've reached a turning point in my skin where I've noticed that more recently, my skin has really been healing well, frown lines have been "pushed out", skin tone is pretty even, etc. I plan on doing it forever (maybe not the 2.0mm but maybe a 1.5 or 1.0 after scarring has filled in) just to maintain a wrinkle free face. I figure I started young (I'm 28 years old) so I might as well keep it up.
If you've only been doing it for 2 months, it'll be a while before you start seeing significant results, depending on what you are treating but don't give up
