Does dermaroller work well with atrophic indented scar I have on the lower cheekbone area?

Scars;VitaminE: Life holds no guarantees as we know, but vitamin e oil placed directly on the scar regularly can help to fade or remove the scar. You can get a bottle of it in the drug store. It's inexpensive and worth a try; just be patient. I don't know about Dermaroller. Also consider seeing a plastic surgeon who may be able to help. Peace and good health.

Do y think using a dermaroller is safe and effective for my stretchmarks? I've seen many dermatology clinics that perform it?

Do y think using a dermaroller is safe and effective for my stretchmarks? I've seen many dermatology clinics that perform it?

Unlikely: The dermaroller device and others like it are designed to cause "micro" punctures into the very superficial levels of the skin which, in turn, is supposed to stimulate collagen production in the treated area. Sadly, for stretchmarks, the effects is not likely to give you a significant enough response to notice a difference, even after several treatments.

Striae on abdomen: striae or stretch marks can be treated, depending on their age, topically, surgically, with laser or microneedling (the dermaroller). Microneedling will require multiple treatments, the concomittant use of growth factor, a topical retinoid and emollients. You should discuss this with your MD.

Pinpoint bleeding: You'll experience some pinpoint bleeding - as you might expect from using such a device. For the record, I haven't seen much success with dermarollers on "icepick" (narrow, deep) scars, but it's probably worth a try.

My face's skin has pores. Which treatment is best to get pores free skin. My doctor has advices to go for dermaroller or ipulse. Any other options?

Pores in the Skin: Thank you for your question. The presence of pores in the skin is considered normal in hair-bearing areas which are over most of the body except for the lips and mucous membranes. Treatments that focus on removing pores usually only provide temporary results as the natural tendency of the skin is to maintain its pores. Assessment by a medical provider is important to exclude other diagnoses.
