Does dermaroller really work?

I did 3 treatments with 2mm dermaroller on my acne scars with an interval of one month each. But I couldn't notice any improvement on my scars and also its getting worse I think. I'm also using vitamin c serum after each treatment. Please give me some advice

Thanks for your query. Yes derma roller treatment helps after few sessions but it’s important to use the right size of needles and for proper time. Hope it helps.
