Can medical Microneedling cause permanent damage to your skin? (photo)

Total of 4 treatments within 1 year, 3 w Rejuvapen and 1 w Eclipse. Dkin on face, neck, and chest left with tiny little scars at each site where the needles had entered and exited my skin. Left with cobblestone skin texture! Every medical Journal read says "scarring" is a possible adverse side effect. Can medical microneedling cause "permanent" damage to the skin? Will a series of moderate safe chemical peels restore my skin texture back to normal? I WILL NEVER DO LASER! Thanks!

Microneedling results--Add prp

Microneedling when done correctly shouldn't cause any scarring.  RF microneedling gives even better outcomes and will improve this area. I always combine microneedling with prp for best results. See an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
