Red marks under skin's surface
« on: April 21, 2013, 10:09:17 PM »
About 2 hours ago I dermarolled my breasts with a 1.5mm dermaroller I purchased from you. I was prepared for some pain but when i started i barely felt a thing. Thinking I didnt penetrate the skin I pushed the roller down harder. After a while i started to feel something and continued over both my breasts. I may have gone over the same areas twice, which I know you're not supposed to do. Now i my chest is red and stings and it has like track-marks. I did not roll back-and-forth over the same spot. The thing that worries me the most though, are the red pinpoint-bleeding underneath the surface of the skin. Im worried, will these go away anytime soon?
It looks really bad in some places! Did I mess it up? Also, it really stung when I applied the Infadolan ointment.  What should I do? 

Regards, /j

Everything you describe constitutes a normal reaction after dermarolling and it will go away.

Here you can see photos of the skin on the thigh right after dermarolling (click to enlarge to see the details). However, the skin on the breast is usually far more sensitive and reacts with more redness than the skin on the thigh:

The intensity of reactions after dermarolling is individual. Using the same size tool on the same area, someone barely gets red and the other is red for days.

It also depends where you roll. Certain parts are more sensitive.

What you describe is very common and a totally normal reaction.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.

Thank you for your quick response! You were right, the bleeding underneath my skin went away after a few days.
