Dermarolling / Microneedling / Results: Improvements 50 to 70%
« on: December 10, 2012, 01:55:11 PM »
Hi everyone and Sarah,
I have been using vaughter wellness products for a year now and I wanted to give you an update on my results.  I am sorry Sarah, but at this point I have not pictures to post :'(  I do however have results  :D

I started out using the 1.5 on my face for fine lines, crepeyness, and scarring from a round of accutane tx about 20 years ago.  Then about 6 months ago I started using 0.5-1.0 on the back of my hands, and only recently started to us a 1.5 on my chest and arms.  I also later added tape suction to my forehead, 11s, crows feet, and acne scars on my cheeks every night(scotch tape).

The majortiy of sun damage that was on the back of my hands is gone.  It's funny because the back of my hand no longer has sun damage, but my arms and chest do which looks backwords because my hands spend he most time in the sun.  These results have inspired me to roll my chest and arms.

The scars on my face are what is most improved on my face. Probably by 50 or 60%.  Sun damage has decresed by about 70% dark spots almost gone.  fine lines have decrease alot along with forehead lines and 11s and alot of skin tightening.  I am hoping to see a little more tightening to see the NLF decrease a little more, as I have see a little improvment in the last few months.  I would like to touch up that area with a little filler in the summer.  Crepeyness(sp?) aroung the eyes has decreased alot largley due to Ifadolan and I use a .5 as close as I can around my eyes, but within safe range of my eyelids. 

Crows feet are softeded quite a bit especially when my face is at rest, but they still continue to show when I smile.  I tried botox in that area to compliment the rolling and it left bags under my eyes so its all about rolling for that area too.  Crows feed are def improved by about 50 %.  Again, I will continue for the next 6 mos to roll(and for the rest of my life  ;)  and then maybe try a little filler in the crows feet area.  We'll see. 

I am very happy with the continued improvement of my skin as it is becoming thicker and has more elastisity. 

At the 6 month mark I always used retin 0.1% imediately after I rolled.  I understand this stings for some people, but it hasn't been an issue for me.  I think this had been especially helpful with decreasing my forhead lines and 11s along with the tape at night. 

I have used:
single needle
vit c
 a-ret (all three)
several sizes of dermarollers from vaughter wellness
sun screan 30-50 on face and hands. 

I am sure I am forgetting something.  I will try to find a good before picture if possible.

My mother-in-law was so impressed with the results  on my hands that she purchased two rollers and all the dermarolling things that you need from Vaughter.  I had to replenish a few things from Vaughter wellness and we ordered everthing together and split the shipping.

That is it for now :D It's good news

Soon mentioned that she had success with her 11's(between the eye brows) after 6 months or more of single needling them.  I started yesterday with:

   -somewhat agressive single needling.

   -.05% a-ret/

   -followed all protocal for after care as directed by Vaughter Wellness.

   -added tape suctioning at night to experiment.

I also did a regular full face needling with a 1.5mm.  I just wanted to document the time I started here on the forum and see how it goes.  I am not sure when I will update again, but I will keep you posted.


Hi Sarah,

I am finding that I prefer to go longer between rolls then 4 weeks when using a 1.5mm roller.  Instead, I am waiting 6 weeks as it just works out better for my lifestyle(i was formerly going 4 weeks and recently switched to 6).  I also like the way my skin finally looks after I hit the 4th week and enjoy  the extra two weeks not having to roll.  

What do you think can be the longest time I can go between rolls with a 1.5 and still get good long term cumulative effects?  Would I be better off using a 2.0 mm every 6-8 weeks?  I have been dermarolling about 4-5 months or so and continually using vitc, copper peptides, infa., and a-ret.  I also started dry brushing a little each day before I wash my face and apply the daily/weekly regiment to my face.

Lastly, because I am dry brushing, do I need to continue to do the .5mm 1-2x week?

Hi Sarah,

I do not have as much pain in the area above my lips  if I use a 1.5mm dermastamp vs. a 1.5mm roller(or it is more tolerable to me).  Will it give me the same results assuming the dermastamp doesn't stamp the same area twice?

Thanks, Lisa

Coming from someone who has used Retin-A Micro 0.1% and Retinol.  I have been thrilled with the 0.05% A-Ret Gel as it has been the perfect dose of Tretinoin for my skin.  And, well...its just hard to change.  I will use your new product, but I am just going through a grieving process ;-)  


Hi all,

I have rolled for one month now following all of Sarah's classic rolling advise, routine, and products.  I have many acne scars due to cystic acne in my early twenties( I am now 39) and a 5 month treatment with accutane. I think you asked Cheeky if she had used accutane and I am curious if there is any information I need to know about the former use of accutane and dermarolling?  It has been about 18 years since completing my 5 month round of treatment with accutane.

Thank you,


It did not sting.  I then applied A-Ret to my whole face and it did not sting. Can I continue to apply A-Ret after rolling and then apply Infadolan?  I was thinking of doing this 1/wk and then rolling a second time each week with a .5mm and using copper peptides after.  

Sarah, Since I tolerate the A-Ret very well after rolling, would it be beneficial to follow the above regiment?

Thank you,


Dermarolling / Microneedling / When to use a PCA skin peel?
« on: December 16, 2011, 11:17:35 PM »
I have PCA skin peels applied to my face every 4 weeks.  They are a superficial peel with a little TCA in them and some other stuff.  At what point in my monthly regiment do I have my PCA skin peels performed in between the 1.5 mm needling?

Thank You,


Dermarolling / Microneedling / Microcurrent?

Hello to Sarah and all,

Does microcurrent compliment dermarolling in anyone's experience, research,  or opinion?

Thank you,


Dermarolling / Microneedling / What size needle to use on a birthmark?
« on: December 06, 2011, 10:23:28 PM »

I am new to this board.  I was born with a birthmark on my right leg, it is about the size of a dime.  The skin is a little thicker on my birthmark than the rest of my leg and it is pretty dark.  What size needle should I use on this birthmark and how often.  I understand this process takes a long time, but is there hope for the birthmark to eventually get lighter or possibly going away?  What other products should I use beside the A and D ointment and A-ret on this birthmark?

Thank you,
