 "needling" preceding laser surgery for acne scars ??

My wife is considering laser surgery for acne scarring.  The dermatologist
has said he would like to start with a procedure called "needling" which
as far as I can gather, is intended to break up some of the scar tissue
beforehand.
None of the reference materials I've come across - either printed or
on the web - mention this procedure, or something that sounds close.
Anyone out there heard of it or have an idea what it might be?  (It's
possible I've
just got the name wrong)
