I needled all my stretch marks and it helped a lot but I cannot reach my buttocks with the single needle. I want to buy this one line dermaroller - it has only one line of needles and I want to use it on my buttocks. I remember Jezebel from this forum had the same problem. Could not reach her buttocks with the single needle

Hiiii!!!
I know that they don't have stopper, but I was thinking of making one. You could do it with toothpick and some tape...
This one that I watched are not for single use,at least that is what they saying...and they are made from silver and medical steal...
I don't know, I'll think about it...especially because my sister is going on acupuncture so I can give them to her Laughing

Hi, I know I'm lame for not reading the entire thread, but my attention-span didn't last more than 6-7 pages, sorry.

I just have a few questions about the rollers themselves (I've got the other things down I think).

Where is the best place to buy? Dr-roller.eu? Which type of roller is the best one? For example at dr-roller, which one do I get and why and what's the difference between them? I'm confused. I know I'm supposed to get 1.5 mm, just wondering about the various shapes.

Also, how long do they last? I read a few of you saying you bought several of them - is that because they can only be used a certain amount of times, or?

The reason why I asked about the dermarolling and TCA peel is that it sounds kindof like a cross TCA peel. You use the dermaroll and then straight after do the TCA peel so that the peel goes in deeper.

I think I may try this on one of my marks and see how it works.

alright i have my account up and uploaded pictures of what i meant by joining 3 needles together.if you have any questions about it please feel free to ask but you should be able to see its a pretty sound concept... why needle once when you can needle 3 times with every stick right.

SEARCH FOR stephen_1001

qbnqty7, concerning disinfecting skin i say to ensure the area is thoroughly washed with a good bodywash or antibacterial soap even before applying numbing cream and then when ready wipe off numbing cream and disinfect with rubbing alcohol.Rubbing alcohol alone is very powerful stuff, when patients are given daily injections the area is actually quite briefly rubbed with alcohol which is more than sufficient to kill any bacteria so for even more peace of mind you could leave the rubbing alcohol on longer.

I'll upload more pictures as i learn more but ive recently seen the benefit of silicone sheets on the needled areas post needling especially when your sleeping it keeps the area more moist warm supple and supports the area but i'm not gonna say much about it until i could really back it up.

Good luck ladies keep up the rolling.


So stephen, I have one question for you. Do you needle the actual stretch marks or do you needle the skin just around the stretch marks? Can you sting the stretch marks? Thank you Smile

Im about to give birth in 1 or 2 weeks. i have really nasty strecthmarks on my tummy and thighs. I did everything during my pregnancy, put oils/ creams, gain little weight ( i only gained 8 kgs as of now), drink plenty of water but unfortunately I still end up with nasty deep dark strecthmarks.Sad

I am hoping that dermaroller will help me with this strecthmarks after I give birth.
Can you suggest what kind of roller will i use and also cream and serum?
Can I use dermaroller while Im breastfeeding?
and is there any success stories that dermaroller really help with stretchmarks?

I still want to wear bikini in the near future

Hi

i developed stretch marks almost a year ago on my inner thighs near my penis and im very depressed with this .

ive had 3 dermaroller treatments its made them alittle lighter some have started to slowly fade , i've had 2 treatments at

theprivateclinic on harley street

and 1 at the non surgical clinic in chancery lane central london .

which is better to do it at home yourself or to have it done professionally ?

is this suppose to be really true

Treating stretch marks with dermaroller
This treatment aims to stimulate the body into healing itself by means of collagen production. The dermaroller device does this but then extends this process so that the skin is healed to a greater extent than normal.

This healing results in the skin becoming thicker which causes stretch marks to fade and then disappear

Hi this is my first post and am new to sight. I must say your discussions are very informative. I purchased my derma roller two weeks ago. I did two rolls on my thighs in one week as all the companies seem to say do a weekly roll, if doing it deep. after i rolled my skin went very red with a little blood, I used a 1.5mm needle so am not sure if I did it correctly as there wasn't much blood. Is bleeding important? I found I had no bruising but felt very itchy for about a week afterwords.

Having read your threads I am now planning to do a monthly roll as I don't want to cause excess damage to my skin by over doing it.

With regards to what to apply to my skin I'm very confused.

I am planning on making my own Vit C and was wondering if Bio oil can be applied, as it contains vit A and C and is meant to help reduce stretch marks, and Retina-A is very expensive so not sure what to use. Derma roller planet recommends bio oil with the roller so not sure. hmmmmmm Confused

Hello everyone, I came across this thread and became intrested in doing the dermaroller. I'm not sure on what size to get since I have SM in my thighs and breast. The ones on my thighs bother me most. I would like to post a pic so I can get an opinion but does anyone get on this anymore?

Ariella,
I believe Stephen said in one of his previous posts that he recommends using a good RETINOL cream rather than Retin-A or tretinoin.

I personally use a retinol cream on the larger areas (my thighs and butt) and use Retin-A on the stretch marks on my hips. I don't know that one is working better than the other, but the Retin-A definitely makes things more irritated.

Monica,
It is recommended to use a 1.5mm roller for stretch marks to start out with. For a first timer, you may even want to get shorter simply to get used to the technique/feeling/etc.

Thanks for the reply. Are you using a dermaroller? If so, where did you buy yours? I'm still trying to figure which is best to buy. I've read some complaints about owndoc but haven't heard much feedback on anything else.

I am dermarolling. I've only owned one roller, though so I have no basis for comparison. I got mine from an ebay seller called simon_elf. The roller was very cheap, but seems to be made very sturdy. I've had good results, but only in one spot, because it's the only spot I've been able to get a good, deep roll, as I am not using numbing cream.

I roll or single needle, then clean the area with alcohol. Then I apply the retinol or Retin-A immediately. I apply my Vitamin C in the morning.

Hi, all! I am new to the EDS and to dermarolling. I see no one has posted in a while so I hope people are still reading this! Smile

I bought my first dermaroller, 1.5, and it arrived on Friday. I did my first roll in Saturday with no numbing cream or ice (it is still winter here). It was more painfull than I expected (I did my thights, butt and hips) but I managed. I don't know though if I applied enough pressure? My skin was read and burning and there were a few visible pin prick bleeding spots, but that was only in certain places. My normal skin looked terrible and the S.M.'s still looked the same (with the exception of some of the bigger ones having the pin prick marks). I did a very light roll last night for product penetration (didn't hurt, was very ticklish). Now I know it is not very good to do this more than once a month, but for product penetration (with the same roller, they are VERY expensive and there is only one supplier) is it OK do it once a week (not applying pressure at all, just a very light roll)? Also, we do not get copper peptides, emu oil, etc here so I have been using my own mixture after (which I use daily- it's a mix of coconut oil, olive oil, Palmers Cocobutter cream and virgin olive oil cream. I am planning on hunting for vitamin c cream, otherwise I will buy the pills and take it as a suppliment. My next question- is anyone doing skin brushing a couple of times inbetween rolling (I think this question has been asked before a lot of pages ago (sorry if that is the case). Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everybody,

I'm new here. I'm interested in beginning derma rolling next month, when I'll have extra cash. I bought some retinol cream and have been applying it. Anyway this might sound really desperate of me but my husband is a diabetic and I have access to insulin needles, unused of course. And I was wondering what your advice is on trying one out for skin needling. The thought just crossed my mind, and I've read the whole 40 page so I know someone can advise me of something unsafe and idiotic. Thanks.

Hi! It has been awhile since I have checked out this thread. I see no one else seems to have checked out this thread in awhile either, though I wanted to share.

I began dermarolling my stretch mark with a 1.5mm. roller in February 2011. I did one other roll one month later and followed up with a single needle 5-7 days later (per recommendations I read here). My stretch marks are on my breasts and are about 12 years old. I am in my early 30s.

I have been noticing lately that my stretch marks look so much better. I decided to take a closer look at them after realizing that they really don't seem to bother me anymore. The woman at owndoc writes on her website that skin needling is a very slow process, with results showing after at least 6 months to a year after starting. Well, it is about 8 months for me, and I can see and feel a difference in my skin. My stretch marks more closely match the color of my skin and are not as noticeable to the touch (something which always bothered me--perhaps more than the marks themselves).

The reason I know needling made a difference is because I decided to test an area, albeit a large area. Stretch marks on my left breast were worse than on my right, so I rolled and needled those. While the same marks are still visible on the left, they blend in better with my skin than the right stretch marks. Yes, they are are not gone, but I only single needled once, and I am happy with the improvement. It is unrealistic to erase stretch marks, but if you can reach a place where you can accept your body and feel comfortable in your own skin, what more can you ask for?

I think I may start needling every couple of months again just to see what other improvements I can gain. I did not use any special topicals--Retin-A. I did avoid anti-inflammatory lotions, etc. for a week after needling. I also use an MSM body lotion, which could help in conjunction.

sorry for the late replies ladies ive been really busy over the past months but i have some results worth sharing.I havent done anything with my skin for months but honestly my skin looks the best it has in the longest time.What really surprised me was that remember i mentioned due to the location of my stretch marks on my buttocks and the difficulty in needling that area and how i rolled with a 3mm roller as the next best thing.... well it seems that aggressive rolling helped quite a bit with the overall skin tone being much more even and actual texture of the stretch marks being much less raised.I think seeing that my skin was given months to heal is the main reason here.

Zebra, i needle the actual stretch marks as well as the immediate surrounding stretch marks

Arielle, retinol is great more than enough for our applications

I see that this thread is slowing quite alot which kind of bums me out a bit because this is such an informative and beneficial thread to people who genuinely want to achieve something that everywhere and everyone else says is 'permanent' 'cant be fixed' 'live with it'.

The webmaster should make a FAQ thread with all the information here and start a new one for beginners to ask questions.

Hello my name is Monica, i am from South America and i have stretch marks (SM's) from pregnancy. my SM's are 10 months old and are in my breast, abdomen, flanks, lower back, thighs and inside my thighs. As you can see I am full of SM's, they are all over my body and are big, wide, deep and depressing.
I have never been as sad as i am now, the reason, this stupid SM's.
I have tried some things to get rid of my SM's:
1. almond oil for 2 months, it didnít do anything at all.
2. danaefabienne cream for two months, it didnít do anything at all.
3. When my sm's were 5 months old and red i had my first treatment: 3 microdermabrasion, 3 mesotheraphy, 3 peeling and 3 laser sessions (erbium yag, smooth mode). The result: my SM's went from red to silver-white. no result in dept or size.
4. I`ve just had an active fx laser session and from now I can see that i will be more than disappointed with the results. Why? this laser gave me scars that are bigger than my stretch marks. Now I am covered on scars. Iíll see my doctor in three days to talk about this but i feel hopeless. I can see the scars all over my body and I feel sad.
So now I would like to try other things:
1. Oral Vitamins such as A, E, C, K, Zink, MSM
2. Jean Wu method
3. Shea Butter + Olive oil + vitamin e + vitamin a
Iíd like to try with dermaroller and topic vitamin c but I am afraid of damaging more my skin and as well because I donít know how to do it and because it sounds painful.

Thank for reading this post.

Monica

I looked over a bunch of pages, but I didn't see this mentioned. For stretch marks dermarolling, is it required to roll until drawing blood? I clicked on an article someone posted, and in the picture where a woman had her face dermarolled, it was all bloody. Does mean there's more repair happening?

Also, I'm planning on purchasing a 1.5 mm roller, so can I also use it in my face (albeit doing it much gentler) without any downtime (longer than overnight)?

Thank you.

Hello I've got stretch marks after my pregnancy on the belly below the belly button. I went for dermarolling in a beauty centre for 8 months when I reach 4 months after pregnancy, and I saw little results. The marks have become lighter only but with different lighting you can still see them there. Now what I want is to get rid of my sagging belly. Anyone knows how to firm the belly?
