Acne and its causes are the subject of ongoing debate amongst medical investigators and professionals. Acne occurs throughout the world and its occurrence is not solely confined to teenagers. Acne occurs more frequently in males during their adolescence but is more common in women after age twenty. When it affects adult men and women, often they experience more severe consequences. Acne treatment usually focuses on a time limited condition. But, sometimes acne treatment becomes a challenge for skin care medical professionals because in some patients’ acne frequently becomes difficult to treat and control. It becomes a devastating and recurring condition that can lead to acne scarring.
In the more severe cases of acne and for reasons not clearly understood, acne scarring occurs in up to 14% of women and 11% of men. Acne and its potential causes should be investigated by the clinician.

There are multiple causes of acne. These include:
- Hormonal dysfunction
- An improper diet (e.g. high sugar intake, cow milk products).
- Food allergies and sensitivities (e.g. gluten, soy, dairy products)
- Intestinal and digestive problems (e.g. constipation, bloating, gas)
- Chronic infections
- Environmental toxins (e.g. heavy metals, chemicals, xenoestrogens, pesticides)
- Lack of appropriate minerals and nutrients (e.g. low magnesium, zinc, Vitamin C).
Acne scar treatment should be directed on the scar type, skin type and the downtime of the patient.
A derma roller is one of the devices used in micro-needling which is the process of pricking tiny holes in the skin to stimulate collagen production. The technical name for this is “Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy” which is abbreviated as PCI or CIT). It’s been used by dermatologists for the last decade or so as a way to reduce wrinkles and scar tissue without significant side effects.
A derma roller or other micro needling treatment can improve the appearance of shallow, diffuse acne scarring along with improving all-over skin tone and texture. For very deep acne scars, its recommended that combining micro needling with another treatment such as dermal fillers, laser resurfacing or scar treatment, including scar excision. In some cases, combining micro needling with a regimen of other procedures may give you the best results.
Basically, the process involves numbing your face and then poking it with fine needles a few millimeters long. These micro perforations trigger increased collagen synthesis. For some conditions it’s supposedly even better than lasers or Dermabrasion because those procedures can cause a loss of skin elasticity.
Derma Roller and eDermastamp are excellent for tired skin that’s losing smoothness, plumpness or becoming slack around the mouth and jaw. Results around the lower face are often the most pronounced, although it’s proven to makes the whole face area look smoother and fresher. The before & after images below show skin take on a new vitality post-treatment, looking brighter, firmer, smoother and clearer.
How can I treat acne scars?
It is well known that the esthetic disfigurement and the psychological damage caused by acne scarring can last a lifetime. Until recently, the prevailing medical thought was that acne scars are “very difficult” to treat given that past treatment options were so ineffective. This thought includes the more currently available treatment options that also provide limited results.
