You may use a dermaroller as scar removal tool. The idea is based on the
fact that our skin forms scar tissue too quick, long before the
body has a chance to fully regenerate the damaged tissue. On the other
hand, small areas like a syringe needle marks, heal without
leaving a trace. So by creating micro damage to the scar tissue, you may
trick the body to completely heal the scar, or at least make it less
noticeable. That is the theory. In practice, a dermaroller
is a handle with a roller, which is covered with needles. Dermarollers
come in variety of needles diameter and length, depending of the treatment
This scar is 20 years old. Roll the dermaroller upwards 10 times.
Now roll sideways 10 times more. The procedure is over. You should repeat it
after complete recovery, which means one procedure in about 3-4 days.
Does it work? That's a difficult question, since full recovery may require
months if not years of regular rolling. But my scar now sports natural
skin lines, which appeared after the treatment. So the only way to
find out if dermaroller will help you, is to check for yourself.
They are cheap, so go try one.
