Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum and wanted to see what everyone thinks about dermaplaning and glycolic acid peel together, specifically for icepick/boxcar scars. Also, I want to apologize in advance if this subject has been brought up before. I tried searching for it already but found nothing :\

About two weeks ago, I did dermaplaning on myself by using the Personna Eyebrow Shaper. I thought the results were FANTASTIC (apart from getting scratched up by the corner of the blade, which I've found is important to dull down before dermaplaning, obviously). Apart from the scratches skin looked brighter, way more even and felt incredibly smooth. The two larger acne scars on my forehead even seemed to be a little more shallow afterwards. Even some of my hyperpigmentation has lightened up significantly. Definitely something I want to keep doing to see where it goes.

Just recently, however, I've read about glycolic acid's benefits for acne scarring. Particularly 70% glycolic acid peels, which I'm most interested in right now. It sounds like quite a few people have really benefited from it.

I know that dermaplaning and glycolic peels are often used in professional practice, but what about doing them at home? Any opinions on the safety/efficacy of doing dermaplaning and 70% glycolic acid peel for atrophic acne scarring?

Also, I use a 1.0mm dermaroller every week. When I had done the dermaplaning, I rolled right afterwards with no problem at all. Could a glycolic peel be incorporated in with this or would it be best to leave out dermarolling for a separate session from the peel?

I'd love to hear what you all have to say. Thanks! Very Happy

Hi Paluk and welcome to the EDS. Unfortunately I don't know anything about dermaplaning. I have used glycolic peels in the past with good results but although I have acne I have never had any long term scaring from it so I don't have any personal experience with that issue. You might want to check into TCA peels. Those are stronger then glycolic peels and you really need to read up on them before you do one but you can get good results from them.

In the above statement you say you are using a 1.0 mm dermaroller once a week. That is way to often in my opinion. You are not giving the skin a chance to grow collagen before wounding it again. Most of the dermarolling advice say to wait 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. Below is a link that Bethany started with lots of information about dermarolling protocols. It might be a good idea to read some of it. Sometimes we can hurt our skin more then we help it by doing too much. There is also a really long thread about dermarolling below. Good luck.

I had often read that once a week with 1mm was fine, but I definitely understand what you mean with doing it too frequently. Thank you very much, CookieD!
