In the present times microneedling using dermaroller is a less well known method. Here the emphasis has been mainly laid on the efficacy of combining microneedling with subcision & punch floatation for effective scar reduction. Acne scars are largely preventable complications of acne. 95% of the scars occur over the face thus impacting the quality of life. Treatment with dermaroller is known by many names like microneedling therapy, collagen induction therapy or dermaroller therapy. The present study focuses at ascertaining the efficacy of dermaroller treatment objectively in the management of atrophic facial scars when combined with subcision and punch floatation.

Keywords: Dermaroller, Microneedling, Acne scars, Subcision, Punch floatation.
