Derma-Rolling (aka Micro-Needling) for Acne Scars: How to Do It Right

You think active acne is one of the most irritating dermatological conditions you could suffer through, until you're forced to deal with acne scars. We're not talking about the little dark or red marks that go away with time, exfoliation, and scar-fading spot treatments. Instead, we're talking about atrophic scarring—aka indented scars that form below the upper layer of skin tissue as a result of severe acne that prevents the skin from being able to regenerate tissue correctly, leaving behind uneven texture in shapes known as ice-pick, rolling, and boxcar scars.
