Can anyone else confirm that needling is no good for hypertrophic scars, though? Like I said before, I'm pretty sure my scars wouldn't be considered hypertrophic, but I want to be certain that needling is no good for those types of scars just to be on the safe side.

I would think, in theory, needling builds collagen, and in the case of raised scars, you want to be doing the opposite.

Help!  used the 1.5 mm dermaroller on saturday morning.  I didn't apply any topicals after because I was afraid I'd breakout.  I've just kept it clean and moisturized. Today is Monday morning and my skin feels rough and bumpy.  Is that normal even after 2 days?  There is definitely a textural change between the treated areas and untreated areas.  I'm already sensitive about my skin texture and I'm worried I've made it worse.  Is this temporary?  Is it microswelling?  Any advice is greatly appreciated!
