Hi good morning. I have acne scars on my face after it has gone. Am planning to use derma rollers from amazon, can someone suggest me what type of disinfectant to be used before and after. Am planning to use dettol to clean face before and after use, is it right. How frequent we can use on face, five times a day, is it ok to use on home.

Please don't use dermaroller on your own. Dettol is not used to disinfect the skin for procedures. Dermaroller is not supposed to be used daily. And it should not be used by someone not trained to use it. It has needles attached to it and if used inappropriately it can cause serious damage.

Yu should not use any solutions like dettol and do peeling or laser for the scars. Dermarollers can be used at home and no disinfectant is needed.
