Has anybody had this treatment?
What's your opinion.

I'm thinking of giving it a go but wanted to know what it's like before I commit.
Did you notice any positive benefits to your skin?

No none has had micro needling ( also called dermal roller? i think the spelling is)

Following as I'm booked in for next week! I've had laser treatments and peels as an acne treatment but not much effect so I'm hoping micro needling is better! I spend 1k a month on trying to improve my skin and can't get anything to work!

I've just bought a derma roller from Amazon after watching the batshit that is Trinny doing it on her YouTube channel. If it gives me skin even half as good as hers I'm in.
It arrived yesterday so I've only used it once. It's the 0.5mm one and it feels like pins and needles as you roll it over your face. Made me bright red but that only lasted about 15 mins.
As I understand it this depth is just for better absorption of products rather than collagen repair.

I had it done last week. While I didn't get stretch marks in either of my two pregnancies, I had them on my outer and inner thighs from puberty, and while they're faded, I figured why not have them softened.

The nurse at the plastic surgery practice says that micro needling, in her opinion, is as effective as laser treatment, but a whole lot cheaper and with zero downtime.

lakehouse 1k a month?! Can I ask on what?

1k!! Have you tried Roaccutane if it is acne that bothers you? Incredibly effective

stopgap have you seen any results yet? How long until you do? What's it for??

I've had four rounds on my face.
It has greatly reduced an old acne scar, but I can't say it really affected the fine lines - Botox is better for that.

It hurts though! My therapist just offers a numbing cream, but I've since heard some places have a local anaesthetic available. Definitely go for the local! The numbing cream barely worked and I lay on the table with tears pouring from my eyes.

Also, I couldn't leave the house for about three days afterwards as my face looked like this - angry. i also had to arrange someone to walk my dog on those days as going out in the sun is not recommended.

I wondered whethe it would be good for tightening up my skin??? Or whether I just need a face lift 😂

Ive also just bought a 0.5mm one from eBay to try. It stings a bit and feels like sunburn but is bearable and quick. Too early to say if it's effective or not.
