Dermarolling / Microneedling / How long can I use Infadolan for?
« on: February 13, 2013, 10:07:57 AM »
Hi Sarah

So I am obsessed with this wonderful product Infadolan.

I was doing some of my own reseach on it today, and came across this post.

****maybe this will help; it's from a Czech Pharmacy website:

V: Herbacos-Bofarma. sro. Pardubice.
DR: Herbacos-Bofarma. DR: Herbacos-Bofarma. sro. Pardubice. CR.

IS: dermatological (a drug for treatment of skin).
CH: Infadolan the ointment for external use containing vitamin A and vitamin D2 in anhydrous Mast base. appropriate to accelerate skin renewal to the affected area.

The part that concerns me is this quote from the Czech pharmacy:

I know I had asked if you thought it as okay to use it on a daily basis, but a bit unsure after reading this????



Dermarolling / Microneedling / A Tip on Infadolan
« on: February 07, 2013, 12:06:02 AM »
Hi Everyone:

I thought this may be ahandy tip for those first using the Infadolan cream

Sarah says to use just a small amount, but I have found that by warming up the Infadolan, before applying to my skin, it spreads much easier, and thus i end up using less than I was

I love the affect the Infadolan has on my skin. It's like its renewing and repairing my skin, and I haven't even dermarolled my skin!

Mucho Impresso! :)

Dermarolling / Microneedling / Amazed at Infadolan

Hi Sarah

I have had a great experience using your Infadolan

My skin is glowing! After just 2 applications. I thought I was seeing things, but noticed a definite glow. Then a few days ago, my mother mentioned that my skin was looking good. I had not told anyone I was using a new skin cream.

PLUS another great benefit is that even though I have acne-prone skin, I have not had one new breakout, or any adverse effect from using the cream

I do have one question however

I was on Accutane many years ago, and did not have a good experience with it.

Now as vitamin A accumulates within the body (similar to vit D) I am a little concerned about Vit A accumulating in my body, especially after my former Accutane use.

Do you know if Infadolan is safe for me to use everyday, if Vitamin A does accumulate within the body, and not dissipate once its within the body itself.?

I am so loving the infadolan, that I would like to continue using it everyday, but not at the risk of overdosing on Vit A. Would you recommend using it less (such as twice a week as opposed to everyday), if I have had an accumulation of Vitamin A in my body, from when i was on Accutane ???

Of course, I know in a topical Vitamin A form is different to taking Accutane, but still some Vitamin A from the Infadolan would be absorbed into the body and not just into the skin.

Do you know how much vitamin A from Infadolan is absorbed into the blood stream?

Any advice much appreciated!!

Thank you


Hi Sarah

I am excitedly awaiting the arrival of the owndoc dermastamp

Was curious what the thickness of the needles of the "owndoc dermastamp 0.5mm" is?

Is the thickness of the needles, also 0.25mm like your single needles, which I am also awaiting??

Warm Regards


Hi Sarah

Could you tell me if you sell thinner needles? I am about to place my order for the shorter needle dermastamps, but was also looking for thinner needles pls, if you have any or could order any?

Thank you


Hi Sarah

You kindly mentioned that you would be getting dermastamps with shorter needles in stock.

Just wondering if you may have any idea when they would be available for order on your site??

Kind Regards,


Dermarolling / Microneedling / Sarah, Dermastamp Advice Please?

Hi Sarah

I love your dermarolling products, but was wondering if you may

have any dermastamps in the range of 0.5 - 1mm  that you would consider selling on your site???

I would like to start off more gently (rather than going straight to the 1.5mm dermastamp), and esp for ppl who have sensitive skin, was thinking that

starting with a 0.5mm, and then if skin reacts ok, graduating later to a longer dermastamp.

Thanks so much,


Dermarolling / Microneedling / How can I see if dermastamp needles are bent?
« on: September 14, 2011, 12:21:36 AM »
Hi There

I am getting ready to dermastamp again.

When I check the needles, because they are so tiny I can't tell if any are bent or not? I tried going outside in the daylight where it was very bright, but they are just sooo tiny

Feeling a little bit hesitant to use it again, as I dont want to damage my skin with potential bent needles

How does one check accurately, without putting skin at risk with bent needles???

Thanking you in Advance

Hi there,

My 5 yr old son got a cut on his face, about three weeks ago.

Took him to the ER (looked quite deep and medical centre advised for him to to hospital)

Anyway, at the hospital, they looked at it, and used that superglue stuff to bond it together (said it wasn't deep enough for


What is bothering me, is that they also applied this sticky adhesive gauze straight over it. Well, they told me that as it starts to peel, just snip off the side where its peeling.

Well, its only peeled a little bit, and i think there is a scab underneath as it feels slightly bumpy (but no pain or tenderness)

Is it best to leave this in place and let it fall off on its own, the sticky adhesive I think is called " Fixomull"??? It has been three weeks that its been on, but it does have little airation holes, that allows wound to breathe.

Do u think its best to take it off, or leave it on, till it naturally works its way off? I want to do whats best so he doesnt get a scar, or at least,a very minimal one, but i thoguht taking it off and allowing it to breathe would be the best way now after 3 wwks?? Becoz its on the face, I think the gauze is helping to keep the scab on, as if it comes off, methinks he will rub scab off.

I also was thinking that down the track, if it does scar, maybe the dermaroller would be good?


So I think I have already gotten improvements with dermarolling after my first attempt,unless this is still swelling, which I hope not

Can you still have swelling after 4 weeks? doesnt seem to be

Anyway, I did a trial dermastamp. I purchased the dermastamp rather than roller. I figure from everything i have read, it is safer, and less chance of tearing the skin, as its stamping motion, rather than rolling.

So a month ago,I stamped just my temples. Wanted to see how my facial skin reacted, as I do have sensitive skin

I have decided against using any numbing cream. the dermastamp i used is 0.75mm

It stung; kind of like a grazed burning sensation. but thats okay, as for me, its just a short period of pain. There was very little redness, and i immediately applied my professional terproline cream, that lamarr recommends on another board.

I have seen an improvement on one of my temples already. It is much shallower the scarring there, the other temple, not as much improvemnt, but just a small improvement.

I have a question tho....

do u think different areas of the face react differently? such as do you think the cheeks would react/heal different to the temples, or forehead|???

I am pretty impressed with my first attempt

i did up my vitamin c intake a few weeks before attempting dermastamp tho

Dermarolling / Microneedling / Confused about your Single Needle items
« on: August 24, 2011, 10:36:16 PM »
Hi Sarah and All'

my first time posting here, but first off, I want to tell you that your site is the best i have found to date, dealing with dermarolling. I have learnt so much here. So thanks so much Sarah!

I am interested in ordering several of your items, one of them being the single needles that you offer. I feel that the single needling will work very well for me. I want to improve my acne scarring, and also improve in general the texture of my skin, which I hear dermarollng can achieve.

Now with the single needles, i am not sure how will i know how deep to prick the skin with it?

Is there a stopper on it??? I dont want to go deeper than a 1mm for now.

I did read your top post about adjusting the single needle with a toothpic, but I must be missing something.

How will i be able to stop the single needle penetrating deeper than 1mm???? I do have sensitive skin

Thanks again
