Hi Sarah, thank you for the question.
The derma roller is (generally speaking) a safe procedure to have performed on one’s skin. it should improve the acne scarring and immediate side effects include but are not limited to pain and discomfort, inflammation, and downtime of several days. Possible complications include infection, localized reactions (dermatitis) and pigmentation changes. I do not believe that it would make the acne scarring worse. Results are dependent on the type of roller used and the person performing the treatment.
