Has anyone used a dermaroller to help with stretchmarks? I want to order one but don't know whate sz to get. I'm afraid to do more damage to my skin. I have a few questions if someone can me PLZ.

What size?
how often do I use it?
do I use anything with it?

Thanks

I'm using dermaroller for stretchmarks for about 1 month now.

I roll it 2-3 a week with no numbing cream. (it's not painful).

I got the 1.5mm and after to roll (I do it really hard) I use the trislastin SR, and so I wrap the area.
I got AMAZING results.... I would say it's about 80% gone.

I can't wait to see the results in few months from now Laughing

Just an FYI...you are probably plowing down the new collagen by rolling that much. If they are 80% gone, then surely you can cut back to once a month?

Also, please be aware that acute inflammation that lasts for longer than 2 weeks turns into chronic inflammation and actually speeds up the rate at which you skin ages.

Bethany, my inflammation goes away in 2 days...
I only roll it again when the redness is completely gone.

Denise...do some research on micro-inflammation at the cellular level. Just because it is not visible to your untrained eye does not mean that it is not still there.

I would suggest that you educate yourself quite a bit further...
- There are numerous articles that I have posted that state how long inflammation typically lasts (and it is not 2 days, lol)
- Dr. Perricone has written numerous books on the topic
- You should acquire a copy of the following article from the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology: Chronic inflammation is etiology of extrinsic aging by Carl R Thornfeldt, MD, FAAD

Of course, if there is a professionally written article by a doctor that advocates using a 1.5mm roller 2-3x a week, please let us know about it... I would love to read it. The doctors that invented the rollers certainly do not recommend it....I know because I personally contacted them and asked.

I'm sure that this will not change your mind in any way, but I am posting in reply because I do not want other EDS'ers to think that this home-grown protocol of rolling 2-3x week is good for their skin in any way.

Ok..I am done posting on this topic. Best of luck!

I wash just wondering how your results are now? I just started using mine a couple days ago, and I swear the stretch marks are already fading! I am a bit concerned though, as I don't want to overdue it, but the pamphlet said I could do it once a week if it was deep and daily if I was just using slight pressure. What are your thoughts? I want these suckers gone!

What you're seeing is the initial inflammation. They do look better initially, but it doesn't stay that way forever. I've rolled twice, 5 weeks apart, and I'm now starting to see some shallowing of the stretchmarks.

You really need to read the entire dermarolling thread as rolling once a week and/or daily isn't considered standard protocol.

Where do you get the trislastin SR from? I would like to purchase a derma roller and try this. I had my seven year old and had no stretch marks but I now have a 20 month old and right after that I now have my 8 month old. I also have 4 stretch marks on both sides of my waist. They probably wouldn't bother me, but I'm not used to them and they are kind of high on the waist. I did some really intense massaging and I think it reduced them some. I also tried TCA chemical peel and didn't notice anything. Would you suggest I try the dermaroller? Thank you so much! Heather
