Treating Scars and Stretch Marks with the Dermaroller

If anyone has had the burden of suffering from acne scars, stretch marks, or any other scar- you know how badly it can affect your confidence, your looks, what you wear, and even alter the way you interact with other people. Many people suffer with these burdens for years because they cannot find a solution to get rid of them or they cannot afford to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars to get rid of them professionally.

However, from my own personal experiences, there is a way to get rid of them. I suffered from stretch marks from having my daughter (stomach), and I also suffered from box car scars from the hormonal changes I encountered during pregnancy that gave me bad acne. I hated them. I felt awful about myself and felt even worse when I couldn’t get rid of them with the things I tried. Then I got desperate. I researched all about the scaring process, elasticity, collagen, etc. I began to run across a device called the dermaroller.

The dermaroller is a roller with a handle that has lots of small spiked needles on the end. Sort of looks like a medieval torture device. These dermarollers can be purchased online inexpensively, and you can do this procedure at home. They come in many different sizes and I decided to go for the 1.5mm roller which is recommended for deep scars and extensive stretch marks. This device will help stimulate collagen production underneath your skin, plump out scars and stretch marks, and ultimately make then disappear

I got the device and began using it immediately. You wash your face with soap and water, clean your face and roller with rubbing alcohol. Then you run the roller across your face penetrating the skin (leaving some pin point bleeding) in all directions that you have scars or stretch marks (Up, down, side to side, and diagonally). Do this 4-6 times in each direction, in each area, and then clean dermaroller with alcohol. After that you can put moisturizing cream, aloe, whatever on your face. Do this 1x every 4 days. About 6months later I was scar and stretch mark free. I won’t lie, this sucker is painful and it is a long process, the area you treat will be tender, red, and slightly swollen (nothing major), but it is well worth the end results. In case you’re wondering, no I am not a promoter or anything of the sort, I just want to help those who are suffering the way that I was.
