Frequency of melanocyte transfer?
« on: May 21, 2011, 06:15:33 PM »
I have been attempting to correct some hypopigmentation, using the single needles.  May I do this procedure more than once q 4-6 wks which is my usual range of frequency for derma rolling???

Thanks in advance :).

Frequency of melanocyte transfer?
« Reply #1 on: May 22, 2011, 07:58:06 AM »
Single needling for scars, using "needle abrasion" (very dense and/or deep needling) should be done only every four weeks on the same skin area. Dense needling of acne scars as well.

   

  If you use the single needles for melanocyte transfer, it can be done more frequently because it is not as aggressive as the needle abrasion method. Every two weeks should be OK.

Consider buying a NB-UVB lamp.
