Patients with mild scarring post acne can benefit from dermaroller treatment. A dermaroller is a handheld device with micro needles. Before starting the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for patient comfort. During the procedure, micro needles create pores in the dermis, which encourage the release of growth factors and cytokines. These in turn generate a wound healing cascade by stimulating collagen, elastin and neovascularization. Needling sessions are done at an interval 0f 3-6 weeks.
