Ice pick scars
« on: November 01, 2012, 11:59:04 AM »
Hello,

I would like to know if ice pick scars can be cured with dermarolling or dermastamping?
If so, which type of dermaroller or dermastamp should i use? 0.5mm? 1.5mm?
How many times should I use it?
What should I apply to my face when I use it?
Are there any recommended serums?
Finally how long would it take to cure the ice pick scars?

Thanks.

Scars can rarely be completely removed but they can be improved and make less visible and less indented.

For ice pick scars, buy a 1.5 mm dermstamp with 35 needles. If they are really deep, buy a 2 mm dermastamp (if you are a beginner, better to start with a 1.5). Stamp every three weeks.

If you have pigmentation problems, such as post acne spots or uneven skin tone, buy a regular 0.5 mm dermaroller and roll up to three times a week.

Apply a little of our Infadolan ointment right after stamping. If you are prone to acne, apply it only for one day.
