New Here: rx tretenoin (Retin-A) and 0.5 and 1.0 mm dermarollers
« on: December 22, 2012, 12:47:00 PM »

I'm a newbie. Started rolling 2 weeks ago w/ above supplies. Am 48, have downturned mouth and lines, 'elevens', and some sagging of lower two-thirds of face and neck. (Have been a paleface--Scotch/Irish genes, lots of night work and sunscreens since teens; a couple of bad sunburns as a kid and once, by accident, at thirty. Frequent 15-20 lb. weight fluctuations; history of drug use and heavy drinking from 15 to 45--clean of all now. Teeth need some help. Am health nazi--to the extent that I can afford it. Lots of vitamins, esp. C, E and A in food.) How soon can I expect to see some results?  Skin tone has begun to improve; am rosy and even. However, my mouth lines and a couple of vaguely horizontal lines near my chin that look like scars (unsure of origin; do not see this on many other women) have done nothing to date. Any assistance? Thank you so much. juliad

It is unrealistic to achieve improvement of lines or wrinkles in two weeks.

Most of your questions are answered in our dermarolling instructions:

The lines around the lips need more targeted treatment. You should add a 1.5 mm dermastamp with 35 needles to your dermarolling sessions and stamp the lines. We recently added a size guide for various skin conditions to our dermarolling instructions.
