Hi Sarah,

I've seen improvements with my stretch mark using 1.5mm (Dr. Roller clones) dermarollers, however some are still visible. It seems that the 1.5mm dermarollers is not penetrating much on deep marks .
Should I use 2mm derma rollers instead?
or maybe use stamp or single needle?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Currently, there is no method that can remove stretch marks. Stretch marks are not "marks", they are very deep scars.  You can improve their appearance and make them less visible. That is all.

The most effective for stretch marks is a combination of dermarolling with a more targeted and intensive method such as 1.5 mm or 2 mm dermastamping or single-needling. The Tretinoin cream that we sell was also found to help with stretch marks in scientific studies.

Follow the routine I describe in this forum posting and please read the links it contains (about medical studies concerning Tretinoin and my article about dermaneedling and realistic results):
