Microneedling is a great choice for acne scarring and rejuvenation. Before seeking microneedling, lasers or resurfacing treatments it is important to first get active acne under control. Microneedling should be performed by experienced Dermatologists, and I would discourage use at home. Microneedling can provide great results, but has a risk of scarring if being used without proper experience.

I'm not clear by your question, but if you're intending to do these treatments yourself, I don't recommend it. I suggest a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers, peels, and skin care to determine the best regimen for you to treat active acne.  Best, Dr. Emer.
