Hi! I'm new and I'm not sure which dermaroller and/or dermastamp to get for my acne scars. I'd also like how long I should wait after each session to do another. Please take a look at my pictures and let me know what your suggestions are. My more deeper scars are on my left cheek. Thank you so much!

In your case I recommend a regular 1.5 mm dermaroller and a 1.5 mm dermastamp with 35 needles.

You can roll and stamp during the same session. First stamp the scars, then roll them.

It is wiser to treat just one cheek and the temple (but thoroughly and densely). When it heals, treat the other side.

Single needles can be useful for your deepest scars. You can single needle, stamp and roll the same area during the same session.

You can also try applying A-Ret cream (we sell it) immediately after rolling. A customer of ours got good results with combining microneedling and the application of A-Ret. It is on page two of this thread:

You do not have the rolling type of acne scars so don't buy the suction pump.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
