When is a atrophic scar ready for dermarolling?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 
I have two scars (out of four) I'm thinking of dermarolling. One is 1 year & 1 month old and the other is 1 year 6 months old. 

I wonder if the skin is still growing trying to fill in. 

Does demarolling get in the way of surface skin regrowing?

I think I will consult a doctor soon but wanted to get other people's thoughts on this.
Thanks.

Your skin is constantly growing. After a year it's time to start treating. No it will not fill in after that period by itself. No dermarolling stimulates more healing in that area. 

When you say atrophic scars, that means fat deficient, you will also need subcision using a Nokor needle with filler.

Okay. I don't think I'll go for filler on these two, hopefully the needling will increase that collagen which I guess is not the skin surface but what's underneath.
