What to use while breastfeeding?
« on: May 25, 2012, 05:46:18 PM »
Hi there!  I am wanting to get rid of my cholasma from pregnancy and previous melasma, want to order the 0.5 mm for my pigmentation issues and the 10 mm for fine lines as well...

My question is that I can't use any of the creams suggested here while I am at the end of my pregnancy and  breastfeeding and can't seem to figure out what I can use that is natural and is NOT an anti-inflammatory??  I love the benefits of tamanu oil, argan oil and bees wax but all of these are anti inflammatory as well, so won't be good for after use of the 1.0 mm roller, as Sarah had so wonderfully explained that inflammation is a good thing for getting new collagen to form...

What can I use that is natural and safe for breastfeeding that isn't going to interfere with new collagen production??  

Thanks so much for any help on this issue!!

Not using a strong anti-inflammatory substance applies only immediately after dermarolling with long needles. Some hours later, it is already OK.

   

  The inflammation doesn't lasts long, after dermarolling:

  I am not sure how strong anti-inflammatory Tamanu oil is but you can for example apply almond oil. Almond oil does not have a strong anti-inflammatory effect.
