I was reading on another website that dermastamp/rolling/needling is only beneficial for sunken acne or injury scars. I have scars from a chemical burn that has left the skin slightly hyperpigmented and has shiny, pinkish scar tissue that looks whitish at times. The scars are about the size of an eraser and are thick and obvious. These scars have been there for the past 8 weeks.

I purchased the 1.5 mm dermastamp to try to break up the hard scar tissue (it feels hard when I squeeze it). I am hoping to break down the scar tissue and make them blend in more with the skin as opposed to standing out.  I am also trying to get the color of the scar to return to a more normal color.  Do you think using a 1.5 mm dermastamp will work for this issue? I obviously do not want to do more damage to the skin and make the scars even more obvious. I was planning on stamping 4 weeks apart. Is that too close together?

Also, after stamping a scar, should I expect to see blood? I know there will be redness, but I have seen other pictures of people bleeding. How long should the redness last? How many stampings does it take to see improvement? Also, if I am Caucasian, should I expect the skin hyperpigment due to the damage done by the dermastamp? I would be devastated if I caused increased hyperpigmentation. These scars do not get sunlight as they are not on my face.

Thank you in advance! :)
