Yep, that's EXACTLY what happened to me so it made a bad situation worse and to add insult to injury the depressions/scars are darker than before, while the healthy skin is back to normal.

I will never microneedle again!

Some people are more sensitive than others and take a long time to heal (they may need steroids), especially darker skin colors. We discussed how men can use medical makeup like dermablend or a concealer / tinted moisturizer to cover wounds after procedures. We discussed how one uses retin a and a product like hydroquinone (in all the journals for this) or any skin whitening formula like konjic and Albutin. The skin swells after procedures, this is the bodys way of healing itself. Scars can get red, they are already not normal tissues by definition. Laser is the best way to deal with the reds quickly V-beam, 1064nm, IPL, Excel V are various options. Scars will get red if they are fat deficient or lack proper pigment / skin structures during remodeling / healing.

What a lot of people don't realize is that micro-needling needs to be researched and understood well first before even attempting any treatment with it. Although you can dermaroll at home, you should first research how to roll and what size needles to use depending on your condition/scarring etc... 

People have claimed it doesn't work but never take into account that they were using .2mm needles on acne scarring or worse. If the needle is too small then you won't get enough penetration for improvement and new collagen to form. If the needle size is too big then you end up worse. They also need to take into account of how often they should be needling which varies again depending on the needle size. If you needle too much then you're not allowing the wound enough time to regenerate which can then result in a more undesirable result. The skin regenerates roughly every 25-30 days with smaller wounds regenerating a little faster than that.

.2mm and .5mm can be used to maintain already healthy skin as well as provide better absorption of any topicals you may use. Can be used twice a week.

1mm and 1.5mm can be used for certain scarring that can be researched online. Can be used only ONCE a month.

Anything higher than 1.5mm would be for deep scarring and I wouldn't even try at home treatments, but instead look for a dermatologist that has experience in microneedling/dermarolling. 

I've read good reviews on the dermapen which is replacing dermarolling now so it may be worth looking into. The pen penetrates straight down into the skin where as with dermarolling the needle is moving inside the skin which can be bad news if it's too deep. 

There are always other treatments as well, but I've had good experiences with needling.
