The only reasons to use it at your age are:

-acne scars

-other scars (stretch marks, surgical scars, accident scars etc.)

-post acne spots and hyperpigmentation

-skin prone to acne and clogged pores (by speeding up the turnover of the skin dermarolling helps preventing clogging up of skin pores by
overproduction of oily sebum (this clogging causes acne).

Nevertheless, you do not have to use a dermaroller to prevent acne.  Try salicylic acid.  Salicylic acid is useful for acne and blackheads-prone skin because it has a comedolyitic (de-clogging) effect. It penetrates the pores and disrupts the sebum that plugs them.

Many have good experience with using Benzoyl Peroxide.

Our Tretinoin creams also help keeping acne under control.
