What to use for Breast reduction scars?
« on: February 12, 2013, 06:13:07 PM »
Sarah,

I have read the dermarolling instructions as well as many other forums on this blog. However, I am still a little confused about what I should use on my scars. I had a breast reduction about a year ago and have a mixture of wide scars, raised scars, and hyper-pigmentation. What tool is the best to use? The 1.5mm one line dermaroller, the 1.5 dermastamp, or the single needles? Thank you!

I recommend a 1.5 mm dermastamp with 35 needles. Stamp all the scars densely and thoroughly every three weeks.

For the raised scars, perform the pressure massage described here:

For the hyperpigmented scars, try also our 0.05% Tretinoin cream. Apply it every second day.
