The authors of the February 2020 Cosmetic article titled “Microneedling of Scars: A Large Prospective Study with Long-Term Follow-Up” (Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020;145:358–364) wish to make the following correction: The abstract misstated the number of study patients in the Background section as “20.” The correct number of patients is “120.” The corrected text should read as follows:

Background: In recent years, microneedling has been increasingly used to treat a number of dermatologic conditions, including scars. Although initial studies demonstrated improvement of (mostly) atrophic scars with microneedling, the number of patients evaluated was relatively small, and the devices and treatment protocols used and posttreatment follow-up varied widely. Through this prospective observational study, the results of microneedling on 120 patients with a variety of scars are described.”
