Dermarolling / Microneedling / Micro Crust
« on: January 22, 2013, 03:30:03 AM »
I used the 1.5 mm derma stamp on some areas of my face and two days later it feels like a micro crust has formed over these areas. Is this normal? I know that with procedures like fraxel restore, micro scabs form in a grid pattern after treatment. I think my situation is similar to this. The crusts are not that visible but the skin feels rough in those areas. This time I was more aggressive with the stamping than usual. 
Also when would I be able to start using the .5 mm roller again? Should I wait a week for the micro scabs to fall off?

THANK YOU! I definitely understand what you are saying. Most of my questions are just general because I would like to get a better understanding of what is happening even though I have read throughout your forum. Your answers were very helpful.

thanks for your help and all of the great information! would you say that after about 10 months of consistent dermarolling with the 1.5mm roller, the entire epidermis and dermis would have been turned over? so after about 10 dermarolling treatments does that mean the epidermis and dermis should have all new skin?

Would derma rolling two to three times a week with a .5mm roller be the same as using tretinoin. This is for my understanding. Both would essentially just increase the rate of exfoliation of epidermal skin and increase its thickness right?

Is one aggressive stamping equivalent to 2 less aggressive stampings but at shorter intervals.
ex. is 8 stamps in one session every 5 weeks equal to 4 stamps in one session approx. every 2.5 weeks
from my understanding but the end of the 5 weeks in both cases there will be an equal number of pricks so an equal number of spots of skin that need to be regenerated. however each time there would be less inflammation so there is less of a chance of hyperpigmentaion?
what do you think? I'm just trying to understand why aggressive sessions with long intervals are recommended.. what is the benefit of that as opposed to shorter intervals with less aggressive sessions.

Yes i am definitely prone to hyperpigmentation. I got it from a microdermabrasion gone wrong. i had that done for the minor acne scars on my cheeks. it was at first very indented and then the skin that grew back was red and turned into this dark color. the color has slightly faded but the skin is rough and not smooth. I got it last December so about a year ago.

One last question. Sorry for all of the posts. I have some shallow rolling acne scars on my cheeks and fine lines around my mouth. Is there a big difference between using the 1.0 and 1.5 mm rollers?

also would the dermaroller help with dry flaking skin?

Hi Sarah,
I have dark skin and plan to dermaroll a scar on my forehead. It is hyperpigmented and uneven in texture. When I lift my eyebrows I now get forehead creases that take a while to settle back. This has never happened until I got this scar. After reading other posts I think I should use the .5mm dermaroller 2 or 3 times a week and use a 1.5mm stamp on the scar and wrinkles once every 5 weeks.
I am worried that this will cause me to hyperpigment more so I wanted to know if stamping the scar with the 1.5mm stamp a fewer number of times per session at a shorter interval is the same as an aggressive session every 5 weeks. What do you recommend?
