These scars were the result of an IPL laser burn. The laser was set too high. The burns happened in Sept. 2009 and the picture is from one year afterwards, in June 2010.
This picture is from March 2011, after five months of needling. The customer is very happy with the results and posted them originally on our forum.

This photo is taken before microneedling, but after acid peels that had no significant result. The photo is taken under halogen illumination inside a bedroom.
And this photo is taken one and a half year later, in September 2010, outside in a sunny garden. The photo was taken six weeks after her last needling.
She has needled her stretch marks every 4-6 weeks for one and half years and she will continue. She has used a 1.5 mm dermaroller and the single needle, topical vit. C and Infadolan. She densely needled the stretch marks from different angles, to various depths up to 2 mm with quite some pinpoint bleeding. No other treatment was employed. Stretch marks are still there but the overall improvement is amazing. The stretch marks tanned for the first time since they had formed. (The straight red lines are caused by swimsuit pants). The photos are not manipulated in any way.

The next customer's photos are of a vaccination scar, treated with the single needle. The scar is 35 years old.
And here is the same vaccination scar after four needlings, one months apart. The photo is taken five weeks after the last needling. The hardened collagen scar tissue is mostly gone and the scar tanned for the first time since it had formed. She has used the single needle, topical vit. C and Infadolan. The scar is much less visible now. No other treatment was employed.
The middle photo was taken inside, the others outside in full summer light.
You can use single needling to improve both atrophic and hypertrophic scars, stretch marks, surgical scars (including liposuction, breast augmentation and tummy tuck scars), scars resulting from accidents including burn scars, acne scars, etcetera. You should not use it on keloid scars.
You can also improve individual wrinkles, especially the ones between the eyebrows and on the forehead.
The needle has to be very thin with a long taper. Our single needles are custom made according to our own design.
The "stretchmarked" skin is usually thinned both in the epidermis and the dermis (skin layers). Stretch marks/scars usually have abundant collagen in them but that collagen is in the form of a scar - the collagen layout is different from that in normal skin and the elastin fibers are abnormal as well.
Pricking the stretch marks densely with a single needle will crush the hardened collagen bundles and that should smoothe the texture of the stretch marks and make them less bright and shiny. With repeated needling, the indented scars fill up a little. Although the scar will never completely disappear.
If you are lucky, the repeated micro injuries caused by pricking the skin will make the stretch marks heal with a better collagen layout and a fiber configuration that is a little more "normal skin"-like. Old scars usually have poor blood supply. Needling often triggers angiogenesis - the growth of new blood vessels. Needling can also induce melanocyte production and that will enable the stretch marks to tan or partially tan. All this is individual, so we can't give hard guarantees.
If your stretch marks are very shallow (unfortunately, most of them are not), they could even disappear entirely but so far, no current method can totally remove deep stretch marks. All we can do is improve them over time. Remember - there are no silver bullets or magical solutions. All real improvement takes time, effort and the endurance of some pain.
