When it comes to skin needling/micro needling, there is a common misconception that deeper is better and that your face needs to be covered in blood for it to be effective. This is completely incorrect and not true!
In virtually all cases, there is no benefit going any deeper than 0.5mm to 1mm – depending on the target site (concern being treated). This is known as the DEJ (Dermal Epidermal Junction). This is the area in the skin where the Epidermis meets the Dermis, and where all new Epidermal cells are born.
The deeper you go, the more inflammation you create and for no real benefit. The only time going deeper would be beneficial is when working with scarring – in which case we would be supporting you via appropriate per and post care.
Skin Needling/Micro needling is another advanced treatment that has been ‘dumbed down’ and is grossly misunderstood and misused. There is much more to it than just stabbing you in the face with a few needles.
It’s a treatment that can be performed by anyone, of any skill level, with little or no knowledge of the skin. Just like laser and IPL/SHR, if you’ve got the money to purchase the device, you’re apparently trained and educated enough to use it as well.
As a result, we’ve discovered the average consumer now believes that needling is the same wherever you go. One clinic will be the same as another. Nothing could be further from the truth!
If you’re interested in getting this highly effective treatment done, make sure you find a therapist that fully understands anatomy, physiology, and cellular biology, not to mention has plenty of experience.
Otherwise you’re just wasting your money!
