When did you get the procedure? With any invasive treatments, it tends to look much worse at the beginning. Collagen stimulation can also take up to 4 weeks and you usually won't see it's full effect until well after 3 months. Things can change dramatically after 4 weeks as the swelling subsides and collagen begins to form. Have hope and look on the bright side.

Hi, I'm having the same thing happen. I've had two microneedling sessions (the first one 6 weeks ago, the second 2 weeks ago) and my scars are at least 50% worse, new ones have appeared that I didn't even know were there. I am looking at old pictures of myself and can't even believe how much better they were before the treatments, and I'm obsessively looking in the mirror / taking pictures from a bunch of angles in the hopes that maybe it's not that bad ... but it is. :(

Does anyone know if this is normal for it to be worse before it gets better?

And Jjc, hang in there and be sure to take care of yourself and get mental healthcare, too. Having someone to talk to can help a lot, even if this is just objectively terrible to experience <3 <3 <3

Yes they tell me there is no way dermapen caused this 

Of course it can, even Dermapen has side effects, just go to google and type : dermapen ruined my skin .

Dermapen messed up my skin. Nurses tell you it helps scars but they just want money. I ended up getting fractional CO2 to smooth out these scars.

Why has dermapen so many negative reviews ? F.e. Microneedling RF like Genius has very positive reviews .

Hmmmm . . . I tried Skinpen on my left temple and did not like the results immediately after at all. The area was red for several months and what I noticed is that prior my temple was a bit like a puffy padded quilt. After Skinpen it was as if the puff was reduced and the depressions connected.  It's been a few years and a Restylane Lyft filling later and it looks okay.

But I digress.  Give it some time. It's too soon to judge what you had done even after six weeks.

Also post some before and after pics to get some impartial opinions.

I should probably not have made such a blanket statement. Dermapen did not help me. It also has damaged other people's skin. However, I have heard about some good results and seen YouTube videos of other people's accounts saying that it does work. I will never do it again.

Microneedling in other forms may help. I purchased a Derminator because I wanted to save money in the long run. I have only tried it once so I can't provide my experience since everyone needs multiple treatments. I stopped dermarolling after getting the Derminator.
