        If you are using a 0.5 mm roller you can roll twice a week, even the scars that were recently single-needled. Do not use a dermaroller if you still have scabs from needling. Do not pick on the scabs - it could cause scarring. Let them fall off naturally.

     It is not necessary to roll on a scar that was recently needled with a single needle. Unless you want to use it for product-penetration into the scar.

   

    It is different if you have a large area covered with stretchmarks, for example. There you should regularly roll the entire area with a dermaroller, but use a single needle only on the stretchmarks.
