which products to purchase for this type of scarring?
« on: August 10, 2012, 01:03:56 AM »
I wrote a post before but it doesn't seem to have posted so I apologise if i'm repeating myself.

I have acne scarring on my face. I have brown face so anything scars. A picture is attached. I have the same scarring on the other cheek and forehead.


I need advice on what kind of microneedling schedule I should follow. What length needles, what products to order, and how often do I use these products before/after microneedling.

I also have stretch marks that i'd like to treat with the individual 1.5mm needles, but also need to know what products to use with these?

I'd really appreciate your help Sarah!

You seem to have post-acne hyperpigmentation and just a few scars. I recommend you a 0.5 mm regular dermaroller (roll  your whole face up to three times a week) and a 1.5 mm dermastamp (the one with 35 needles not the one with 80 needles). Stamp the scars every three weeks. You can also try our Tretinoin cream. It keeps acne under control and it helps with pigmentations.

Are your stretch marks red or white, raised or indented, where do you have them and do you have many?

Thanks for your reply Sarah,

I don't really know how to tell the difference between the scarring and the hyperpigmentation. I suspect most of the marks are just due to hyperpigmentation.

My stretch marks are on my thighs and bottom. They're white and raised and they've been there every since I was a kid (I've never had dramatic weight gain or weight loss) and I have no idea why they're there.

I've read on here that the best course of action should be 1.5mm needling and infadolin?

Should I use infadolin on my face too after dermarolling and stamping?

Also what percent tretinoin? I don't actually get breakouts as such. They are individual pimples that occur once in a while, but they leave scars so I have a good 6 month history of any blemish that has appeared on my face!

Cheers

Sorry for the delayed answer.

Concerning the stretch marks:

If your stretchmarks are RAISED, you can perform the pressure massage described here:

You can try a 0.5% Tretinoin because your main problem is the pigmentation.
Your scars are very mild and there are just a few.

No, do not use Infadolan on your face because it could cause breakouts in your case.
