Acne or pimples happen when the pores on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. A plugged pore is the perfect place for bacteria to grow. This creates the red bumps and pus-filled red bumps known as pimples/acne. Severe acne tends to have serious scarring on our skin.
Acne breakouts leave scars on our face which reduces our self-confidence.
Types of Acne Scars:
There are different types of scars of acne:
Ice pick scar
A majority of people get Ice pick scars. They are very tiny minute scars present especially over the cheeks and nose. They are narrow and v-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin.
A rolling scar is a little bit bigger scar and margins are coming downward. They have rounded edges and an irregular rolling appearance. These scars are connected to the deeper tissue.
Box scars are wide and U-shaped scars that have deep edges. These scars are very deep and large which connect that skin to the lower parts of our skin.
These scars are usually found on the chest and the back. They occur due to too many fibroblasts produced by the skin when the acne is getting healed.

Micro-needling is a very simple derma-roller procedure mainly for acne scars. In this therapy, the doctor takes a handheld rolling instrument which has several pins on it. These pins can range from 192 to 540 needles and they have a varied length as well which ranges from 0.5 to 2 mm. The doctor chooses the length of the needle according to the type and the area of the face that they have to treat.
During the procedure, the doctor rolls the instrument on your skin to stimulate bleeding causing small wounds. The small wounds on your skin are the good wounds. These wounds lead to the release of several growth factors like the epidermal growth factor, fibroblast growth factor, and a platelet-derived growth factor. It leads to collagen regeneration, re-modeling, and youthful appearance.
Micro-needling is highly used to treat scars such as icepick scar, rolling scar, boxcar scars.
