Is it true that dermaroller for stretch marks should only be used once?

Dermaroller can definitely be used more than once on stretch marks. In my experience a treatment series is required to reduce stretch marks.
Micro-needling for stretch marks
For the best results in treating stretch marks, a treatment series is recommended combining micro-needling with human growth factor serums.
We use motorized micro-needling, not the dermaroller, for a more even and more effective result. Rollers create a more erratic pattern of "tears" through the skin rather than the clean, more evenly distributed punctures seen with motorized micro-needling machines. Because micro-needling has been shown to enhance delivery of topically applied skin care products, we combine micro-needling treatments with human growth factor serums to get the best results. In my office we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated human growth factor serums made from human stem cells. Our patients also use growth factor serum at home after the office treatment.
