I had three dermarollers done for acne scarring. I was told I had box scars and that three dermaroller sessions would reduce the scarring by 80%. As you can imagine I was so excited having lived with scars all my adult life. Anybody who has them knows how acne scarring can affect your self esteem.
I found the treatments incredibly painful and the down time was around 4-5 days until the redness and swelling had reduced for me to go out the house! At the end of the 3 treatments my scarring had improved 0%. Yep, you read that right, NIL per cent. No improvement whatsoever. Even the nurse who had administered it finally admitted that there was no improvement. It is a very expensive treatment so in my opinion, a complete waste of money. I guess I am destined to have acne scars for the rest of my life :-(
