Single Needling and Aftercare Questions
« on: June 25, 2011, 02:50:25 PM »
Greetings from sweden! :)

I've been dermarolling for about half a year, and seen some improvement so far but I'm far from done. I'm thinking of trying single-needling since some of my scars are quite deep but I can't seem to find any good guide on how exactly one should perform single-needling.

I am therefore looking for an in-depth sort of guide on single-needling acne scars, mine specifically are a mix of rolling and boxcar scars.

Regarding the aftercare - I have just been using some strong vitamin A cream and Copper Peptides after rolling with a 1.5mm Dermaroller. I am unsure if this has negatively affected my results, I chose to not purchase the Indolfan cream you recommended due to still being prone to acne. I might however reconsider using it if you reckon it could increase my dermarolling results and not greatly increase any chance of new acne.

I am also dermarolling with a 0.5 roller and using a quite strong mix of vitamin C, which I have created myself using the vitamin C powder from your website, and after applying the vitamin C several times I have either put on the vitamin A cream or a new cream I recently purchased called Hyaluron-Filler. I am just testing it out to see if it helps anything at all on acne scars - any input on whether Hyarulon-Filler is good or not would also be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Fredrik R

P.S Sorry if my grammar is a bit off, I haven't studied english for a whole year :(

Single needling of acne scars is explained in our dermarolling instructions:

   CHAPTER 8 - SINGLE NEEDLE FOR INDIVIDUAL SCARS AND WRINKLES

   

  (Paragraph: Sparse needling: Acne / chickenpox scars or individual wrinkles.)

   

  http://dermaroller.owndoc.com/dermaroller-instructions.pdf

   

If you have any specific further questions after reading it, just ask.

 

 You do not necessarily have to use Infadolan but keep the skin very much moisturized after dermarolling or needling.

   Regarding Hyaluronic acid:
