Best Scar Treatment I've Tried

Postby Anna66 » Sun Oct 18, 2009 6:16 pm

I get acne. When the acne goes I'm left with brown spots, especially on my chin. I've tried a bunch of stuff and finally found something that has worked really well for me called Invicible scars advanced scar treatment.

The only downers - it's a little pricey plus it stings a little (temporary) if you put it on after washing your face. I think that's because of the vitamin c but I'm not sure. Until someone tells me stinging is bad, I'm just going to keep on using it. I was worried about it before but since the stinging doesn't last long, I don't think it's really a problem.

Hi anna66,

I've never heard of that product thanks for the information. You may have help others who otherwise felt like there was no solution.

If you are looking for something a little more aggressive you can try a needle skin roller:

Deluxe Electric Skin Roller (with Vibration Mechanism)
ID: 59153

http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.do?id=59153

This roller is an excellent option for all types of scars because it penetrates the skin and allows your scar creams and gels to really work deep in the skin to repair and regrow healthy skin cells.


I also like this roller because it has interchangeable heads that allow you to vary the length of the needle. This will allow you to be more aggressive in some areas of your face where you would like to see better results.


Deluxe Electric Skin Roller Removable Needle Cartridge Heads (2 Cartridge Set)
ID: 60946

http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.do?id=60946


I would use the Scar Esthetique Reduction Cream (w/Silicone, Arnica, Antioxidants, Copper Peptides, Co-Q10) with the roller to help smooth out those stubborn acne scars.

Interesting! I must say it makes me a little nervous though. The cream is working for me without the roller. It can sting a bit if I apply it right after I wash my face. Come to find out this is because of the vitamin C. Using Invicible along with the roller may make the stinging even worse if the roller penetrates the skin. Not sure if I'm brave enough!

I'm glad you thought my post was useful. I'm really happy with what I'm seeing.

Does the roller ever make your skin bleed?

You have to be very careful.....
If you're rolling over one spot too much or too hard, then yes. But as long as you use as directed, you shouldn't puncture any blood vessels.

Hey Sandra

I'm 44yrs old male with light to skin color. I have hyperpigmention under both eyes. My Skin is Very Thin under both Eyes. I think it's from the Sun. It makes me look like i have Dark Areas under my Eyes.

I have tied Retin A and for alittle while but my skin became red under my Eyes. And i looked worse. I also felt that it was getting thinner from it too. So i stopped using it. Would you know what i can use for this. Thanks Joe

Okay, I'm really curious about the needle roller method.

I read that .05 is good for sun damaged areas, but a 3.0 is good for large scars, but the 3.0 is only for professional use.

Also, I wondered about the sanitation of the roller. It obviously can't be put in an autoclave or sanitized in Barbicide, correct?

Are there special creams that need to be used with this method or can you use your regular regime of facial cream and body lotion/cream for this to work?

I've had numerous cosmetic surgeries and I have quite a bit of sun damage on the cheeks of my face and I'd like these to go away PERMANENTLY. I don't wear sunscreens because my face burns and I find it creeps into my eyes and lips after about 15 minutes after application and I don't apply it anywhere near my eyes or lips. This goes for any level of sunscreen barrier.

I've found that the first year of applying regular lotion regularly to the scarred areas have made them shrink but I still have some strange discoloration and a few "nubs" from drains and some areas are still red/purple while others have sort of turned more skin toned colored with a few irregular looking stitching, stretching skin looking areas.

If you could give me/us a LOT more information on the roller needle method, I'm all ears.

I look forward to hearing more,

Quasi

PS Thanks in advance.

PPS If you are using it on your face, you look FABULOUS! I want it!!!!
I WANNA LOOK LIKE NICOLE!!!!

I've seen some of you asking a bit more about the dermal rollers.

Here's a link for some more information: http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product/b ... catid=2182

Here's a chart for needle length reference:

Needle length and Uses
0.25mm - Increased penetration of skin care products into the skin and overall improvement of skin color and texture, thinning hair
0.5mm - Increased penetration, less invasive CIT. Alopecia, wrinkles, mild pigmentation, general skin rejuvenation
1.0mm, 1.5mm - Standard CIT. Acne/chicken pox scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, elasticity decline, cellulite, pigmentation
2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm - More aggressive CIT for more severe cases, deep scars and wrinkles, rejuvenation of ruined skin

We have a wide variety of rollers at the link above, some are manual and some are electric. You can always find the best one for your needs.

Good luck!

Seems like invicible has invaded the town now =D>
I too am IS experienced. Personally, i too found it promising. I had pitted scars on my face which were like an year old or two. I used IS for 2 months and the appearance faded up to great extent. I'm all clear now :)

Invicible is a good product. But make sure that you keep your diet intake proper as none seems effective if it isn't being backed up internally via essential minerals and vitamins needed to repair collagen
