Thank Sarah that helps so much.  I understand the star pattern and I wont be doing that, I ve read the instructions a couple of times.
What I didn't understand is whether you roll eight times and move the roller down exactly the width of the roller, and do another 8 times on new area, or do ONE time and move the roller very slightly down and do another one time and keep doing that.

So since Randomly is fine I can do either or :) Cant wait to start the rolling now...I am stamping every four days, very densely, and I do see blood sometimes coming out.  Yesterday I pricked one of my frown lines for the first time!  It didn't hurt that much no. And I did insert it all the way in and pricked all along the line from top to buttom.  I will keep doing this and hopefully I will post some pictures in a few months time.

Only thing that is bothering me right now is the nasolabials, sometimes they are so prominent, sometimes I can hardly see them. which means sometime I lose weight and they really stand out. The stamping with the 0.5 didn't help much, and they do become very red.  I will experiment with the roller 1.0 that I hve.

Thank You so much for the informative answers.

DO you need to repeat 8 times?  I noticed in the video she is repeating 8 times....
Lets say I am trying to roll my forehead....from left to right horizontally.
Do I need to repeat the exact same area 8 times, before I  move the roller a few millimetres down?
I am guessing that if I am only moving the roller down a few millimetres for the next roll, I am still rolling a little bit the previous area  no?

Would like to clarify this before I start rolling...the repeating eight times bit...I didn't see it in the instructions manual, It only says move the roller slightly and roll once.

So far I am only stamping with 0.5 so would love to try this now, with my new 1.o mm dermaroller.
thank you sarah

Also, do you stamp again after three days even is you still have redness?? Cant find this question anywhere.  In my case its 0.5 dermastamp but the redness on my forehead takes at least 3 or 4 days before it disappears...
thank you!

from Sarah: you should wait until the redness is gone

Sarah, that is sooo helpful.. I never realized I can use a little on eyelids too...I M sure it makes a big difference as I started to have some crepeyness there..and if I can remember, my hands definitely need some skin appears dry and crepey there too.

Really appreciate your answers, I can clearly see my crows feet less noticeable!  I will definitely continue to use Infadolan! I use it every night (once a day).

Thanks for all the comments here.  To Fusion, you mentioned a good point about infadolan and cuts.  I wasn't putting infadolan while stamping with 0.5 at first, but was just putting Retinol serum (not Retin A) to enhance its penetration.  Sometimes I put infadolan after it and sometimes I don't.  Lately I discovered that I was having a dark mark across my forehead, and the redness of the stamping doesn't go away the next day...when I applied infadolan straight away after stamping, there was no irritation, and no horizontal dark marks (on the wrinkles) where I stamped.  I am doing exactly that now.

Another question re infadolan.  Does anybody use it on the eyelids and where you put eyeshadow?  Or only underneath and on crows feet?  Look forward for an answer.

Last question.  Layering.  If I have a favourite eye cream or apply it first, especially around eye, then apply infadolan or you cant layer them?  And if you layer them, and I believe Infadolan comes last as its long should one wait for the eye cream to absorb?

Same goes for Vitamin C serum if I d like to use Vitamin c Serum first and Infadolan too! 

Thank you very very much..

Sarah. thank you very very much for your reply!  I don't consider myself too sensitive to the sun. WHen I was young and even during my early thirties,  I never suffered from pigmentation and always exposed myself to the sun, like sunbathing etc. 

I will follow your advice, however, and should stop stamping and using Retin A (I knew about Retin A and sun) IF I know that I will be in a very hot country, going to the beach, etc. I only use REtin A for wrinkles and not for acne.

I have a feeling that the problem IS with the microcurrent...I don't use it the morning after I stamp, I allow a day so the redness of my stamping will go away.
Reason why I think its Nuface is because a have a small burning mark on my forehead...and although I apply the protective gel, it does appear 'slightly  more red' everytime I use it...and the pigmentation is around the hairline, top forehead. Nowhere else on my face.  Unfortunately I didn't find any information on the internet regarding Nuface and side effects, if any, its just my thoughts...

I have a  few more questions but I will try to find the right thread for them. One small question is whether I can use my favourite eye cream at night UNDERNEATH the infadolan (I love both of them) and if so how much time I need to allow for layering... Also, should Infadolan be used ON EYELIDS or ONLY UNDERNEATH, ON CROWS FEET...I understand if I am out of subject here, would love it if you know the right link to a thread.

Thanks for your replies!

I have a similar question and do require an answer....I am stamping on my forehead wrinkles with 0.5m dermastamp. I can say that they have softened a lot and a lot after about a month...however lately I noticed some dark spots and some pigmentation on my forehead...I really don't know whether its Retin A (I only do it 2 to 3 times a week, low strength 0.025) , or maybe Nuface? I do Nuface microcurrent 3 times a week on my forehead..I apply 50+ sunscreen and hardly stay out in the sun, but when I do its kind of a short walk to and from a store etc...Is it still bad to walk in the sun like this even with sunscreen 50?  Do I really really need to avoid the sun and wear a hat all the time??  A bit confused as I  had never had this pigmentation before..

Would appreciate someone's help.

Also when someone lives in a very hot climate...or move to a country where its hotter....should we stop Retin A and also stamping and dermarolling?  Is sunscreen enough?

Thank you so much !

This is a great post!  Thank you Sarah!  I just put in my first order, and I am excited.
I bought what you suggested, the 1mm roller and the single needles.
And since I currently use an 0.25 stamp, and I couldn't find one on the website, I order myself a 0.5 stamp a little bit during the week and in between the 1mm rolling.  Hope it is ok if I do this?  I am doing this for forehead wrinkles.

In the meantime I have printed this post for ease of reference!
Thank you Sarah.
