Hi Sarah,

Just a quick question...

What happens when you over-stamp a hyperpigmented scar? Because I must have done it over 8 times and now there are what looks like blood marks engraved in the scars -___-

Appreciate any input!

Blood marks are completely normal after deep rolling or stamping. The recommendation of eight times is a general recommendation that can be adjusted according to the toughness or sensitivity of the skin.

A dermaroller or dermastamp causes tiny microinjuries in the skin. The skin gets red and some deeply, densely stamped spots can stay red for a long time – it is totally normal. The body will heal the micorinjuries and as a side effect of this healing, the scar often becomes better than before. This is the principle of dermarolling. A red scar will look worse for some time after dermarolling until it completely heals.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
