Any skin needling treatment whether dermaroller or dermastamp devices should be performed at 6-8 week intervals rather than the 2 week interval you mention.
The reason for this is that the treatment stimulates our wound healing response to make new collagen in the skin. The new skin cells take approximately one month to come up to the surface.
Re treating the skin in such a short time would not allow you to see the effect of the treatment - either from the scarring or the hyper pigmentation.
It's worth noting that the inflammation caused by aggressive skin treatments can contribute to developing post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Clinical evidence suggests that at LEAST 3 treatments are needed at 6-8 week intervals to show visible improvements to skin smoothness or pigmentation.
Results may become apparent approximately 6 weeks after the first treatment but optimum results seen after third treatment.
The use of growth factors and retinol products at night can help the process.
Daily sunscreen of SPF 30 to 50 in an absolute must.
The optimum depth for the face is 1.5mm. The 2mm is rarely used on the face apart from exceptionally thickened, acne scarred skin for example.
We use Genuine Dermaroller and their eDS electronic dermastamp in our treatments
Wait longer before your next treatment.
Care for your skin with cosmeceutical grade products to keep it hydrated and protected.
Antioxidant serums and SPF in the day and Retinols, growth factor serums containing hyaluronic acids to hydrate at night.
