Laminar flow and wall roughness

I model bingham plastic, unsteady, vof(paste and water)..
the flow is laminar..(never turbulent)
well.. the channel I model is micro-channel and the wall roughness is very important.
Usually, in the laminar, the wall roughness doesn't affect the flow..
But as I know, in micro-channel, the wall roughness is very important for the pressure drop though the flow is laminar.
So I have to change the wall roughness condition, but in fluent the wall roughness condition is not activated in laminar flow...
of course I know, the roughness condition is activated in turbulent...
But what I need is the method to change the wall roughness condition in laminar flow..
using UDF... is this possible??
or is there other method?
well.. is there a method that I set the turbulent setting and give some appropriate value for the laminar flow?
I am really wondering that...
and, i ask you an advice about whether this is possible or not in fluent setting... please...

if you set a turbulent viscous and change roughness but you have a laminar flow it doesnt make a significant change
