Microneedling damage.

Hi I had a professional microneedle treatment two months ago and there are two marks on my forehead that looks like a fingernail was pressed into the skin from the treatment. What options can be done to fix this? I did this for acne scarring and didn't want to add additional scars to my skin.

Plato's Scar Serum to a microneedling scar

At this point, be conservative. I would use Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM creams twice daily to the area. 

Best,

I suggest posting photos as this is not what should be occuring from microneedling treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.
