Good experience with Derma Rollers on stretch marks?
Has anyone had any good experience with Derma Rollers? I've been researching them and they seem too good to be true. I'm looking to use on stretch marks. So has anyone ever actually used one and gotten good results? Also can you use the same one on two different parts of your body? Thanks in advance!
Additional Details
Yeah I did some research on bio oil as well. The best results I've heard from it is changing your marks to a silvery white color, mine are already at the stage, so I wasn't sure if it would work. My main focus is my arms as well.

Gems D+G
i know this doesn't answer your Q about derma rollers, but i used bio oil for stretch marks on by bum/lower back and hips and it really worked on them but also i had joined a gym at the time i started using it so i don't know if that also played a part in getting rid of them but i stoped going to the gym after about 3 weeks, and about 4 weeks of using the bio oil i stoped using it so regularly, this was about two years ago, : )

Yeh that's the same affect i had i can only see them if i really look and shine i light on it lol, but the comments the guy below made about the derma rollers that his girlfriend uses sound promising, good luck : )


My girlfriend has used one and it cleared up her stretch marks very well. It does appear too good to be true but there does seem to be quite good scientific reasoning behind why it works.

She used it on her belly and on her thighs too without any problems. I think they come in different sizes though too for different body parts.

She was very happy with the results. I bought it for her after doing my research, a bit like you. It was off this site www.derma-rollers.com as they actually have some good info on there too (which I always like) if you need to get a better idea of how they work.

Good luck.

collected this "Home Remedies for Stretch Marks" from several websites & friends' secret recipes, as some over the counter creams may not be effective & also costy..
The Second part of this treatment answers ur Qs..
Good Luck

Dietary Factors

•Vit. C Supplement (1000 mg daily internally) - Increases collagen but not other necessary skin proteins.
•Eat nuts and seeds and take zinc and vitamins A, C, D, E, and B-complex as a preventative measure.
•Drink 2 liters of water daily to keep skin hydrated and moisturized.

Subcision (needling)

Break up the tissue to signal your body to produce more collagen, therefore, filling in the stretch mark. You do this with a skin roller. The needles injure the upper 1-2 mm of the dermis. This injury causes localized damage and bleeding. This will promote the normal post-traumatic infiltration of fibroblasts and the release of growth factors.
- Use copper peptide with retinol A afterwards to improve skin renewal process.

Homemade Stretch Mark Exfoliate

•With the help of a wet washcloth, exfoliate your skin first. Take ½ tsp of olive oil, cod liver oil and aloe Vera gel and mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Apply this mixture to the affected area or you can even apply it to the whole body as anti-aging skin treatment.
•Take sugar, cod liver oil, olive oil, aloe Vera gel and Vitamin E crème or oil. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and massage gently on the affected area. This mixture acts as an excellent exfoliating scrub and stimulates the blood flow.
•5 tbsp of scrub, 1 tsp aloe Vera, 1/2 tsp vitamin e, 1 tsp coco butter. Massage it over your stretch marks for a few minutes. Do it after you showered and before you go to sleep. Blot the areas your going to massage to maintain moisture. Do not put allot of pressure but focusing only on the skin, for about 3 minutes on each spot. Then use a bath sponge or loofa or towel for 3 minutes then rinse.
•Body scrub (mix with a little olive oil), cod liver oil, vitamin E oil/cream and aloe Vera gel. Exfoliate first but always make sure that you are scrubbing towards the heart - this stimulates more blood flow and is great for getting rid of cellulite.
•Using MicroDermabrasion System (Neutrogena, bought in stores) on stretch marks, about 3 mins on each mark in small upward circles. Then rinse the area with warm water and pat dry. After that, apply Vitamin E oil all over the area.

Homemade Stretch Mark Cream & Lotion

- 1/4 cup Cocoa Butter, 1 tbsp. wheat germ oil, 1tsp. light sesame seed oil, 1tsp. Apricot kernel oil, 1tsp. Vitamin E oil, 2 tsp. grated beeswax, 1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional).
Mix together all ingredients except vanilla extract. Heats gently until the cocoa butter and beeswax have melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool completely. Store in a clean jar with a tight fitting lid. Massage into your skin.
- ½ cup of cocoa butter, 2 tsp of sesame seed oil, 2 tsp of Vitamin E oil,1 tsp of apricot kernel oil, 2 tbsp of wheat germ oil and 4 tsp of grated beeswax.
In a pan mix all the ingredients and heat it gently until beeswax and cocoa butter melts. Cool the mixture after removing it from the heat. Gently massage your affected area with this homemade stretch mark crème.
- 1/2 virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup aloe Vera gel, contents of 6 capsules of vitamin E, Contents of 4 capsules of vitamin A
Mix all ingredients using a blender and store the mixture in the refrigerator. For best results use daily.
- Mix 3 oz of the Vit. E, 3 oz of the MSM lotion, 3 oz of Rose Hip Oil and 3 oz of emu oil (refined) - and then shake it well to mix it up. (note: Keep it cool, do not store in sun or heat) Then pump and massage into skin. Since Emu oil is carrier oil, it gets the Vit. E, Rose Hip Oil and MSM down to the deepest layers of skin.
Effective Oils
•Vitamin E Oil - Apply Vitamin E oil after taking a shower. Do not wipe it off. Apply daily. If you don't shower every day, clean the stretch mark area with a wet cloth and apply. You can cover the area with band-aids or gauze (use medical tape to secure).
•Olive Oil - For prevention, put olive oil on all areas that could be affected by stretch marks twice a day. Cover with a warm-hot washcloth. Leave on until rag is cold. Should notice improvement within the first few times. (Also works for wrinkle prevention.)
•100% pure mink oil, rub in twice daily until stretch marks are totally gone.
•Flaxseed Oil-Rub flaxseed oil on stretch marks after showering and again before bed.
•Applying lavender oil on the marks thrice a day will fade up the marks soon.
•Mix one ounce of carrier oil (avocado, sweet almond, jojoba, they are the best) with seven drops of lavender and five drops of chamomile.
•Rub castor oil on the stretch marks, rap with a plastic rap and place a hot pad on. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes and wash off.
•Use various essential herbal oils like avocado, rosehip, kukui, emu, neroli, chamomile, helychrysum, almond, camellia, etc. These essential oils are known for their healing as well as moisturizing properties.

Other Ingredients

•Grind coffee into a powder and mix it with hand lotion. Rub into stretch marks for about 60 seconds and wipe off with a warm towel. Apply twice daily. Results take about two weeks.
•Use the fresh aloe Vera gel on the affected area. Allow it to dry on the night and rinse off with warm water in the morning. It assists in the flexibility of the skin in order that as one stretches in the pregnancy, one will not find any stretch marks.
•Use plain yogurt, mixed with a little thyme, and rub it on the places with stretch marks. It also makes you feel like a bunch of dirt has come of those places.
•Egg white and egg white powders are greatly effective in treating stretch marks. As they are rich in protein, they provide protein to the skin. This will completely remove stretch marks.
•Cocoa & Shea butter is also effective in fading stretch marks. Shea butter acts as a hypoallergenic natural moisturizer which smooth your skin remarkably.
•Bath using a discoloration bar.
