Using dermaroller to treat acne scars. Can I use vitamin c serum after roller?

i bought a dermaroller 0.5mm from a clinic here to treat my acne scars (those pitted ones) and for active acne. When i asked doctor he told me to apply clyndamycin phosphate after rolling when you sleep. But some sites say that anything u apply after the rolling penetrates deep in the skin and show awesom result. so can i use vitamin c serum immediately after derma rolling my skin?

Hi..dear kiran..,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
Dermaroller...... are used for a treatment process called micro needling or skin needling. It is a form of collagen induction therapy...,It will increase 4% to 87% absorption of skin and hair products by the blocked pores which stimulates hormones effectively & naturally without inducing hyper pigmentation and sun sensitivity to the skin.
Dermaroller improves blood supply on scalps, face, neck, skin and throughout the body irrespective to the nature of the skin..,
RESULTS are depend upon...the experience, skill and technique .,
of the Doctor...So it is not handling by U without knowing anything..,
about these...Hence consult good dermatologist..ok thanQ
