Reply to "Appearance of surfacing buried scar tissue/damage"

Hi Polly!
 
Thanks so much for your reply. Without photographic and written documentation of what I use and what my skin appears like after derma needling, I often lose sight of my progress.
 
Its helpful to know that I'm not the only one that experiences the bumps after derma rolling. I never knew it was an immune reaction. At one point, I actually thought that they may be cold sores, considering how close the scarred tissue I roll the most (deepest scar I have) is near my nasalobial fold (smile line) and I've had cold sores before.
 
Makes sense to only use CPs after derma needling. I've backed off from the stronger acids, and only have 2% in my cleanser that I use once a day or maybe every other day, just to keep the acne at bay.
 
Thanks again for your reply. Your information has been helpful.

I know its an immune reaction to the injuring from the roller; which is a normal body function, they will last about 2 days and nearly all gone by the 3rd day. They have never turned into cysts that remain so I cant advise there, however I did have a cyst once that reacted similar to yours with continue peeling  and then eventually went away. After injuring the skin I only use the copper peptides without the salicylic acid in; to help with the wound healing and never any form of chemical exfoliant for at least a week; to me, its too much irritation and stress for the skin, that has already been injured from the rolling. After injury I feel you just need to let your skin  deal with the inflammation and heal, less is more. I don't know if this helps, just my natural inclinations in regards to your issue.
