As each needlepoint punctures the skin, it creates a tiny hole and very small injuries to the epidermis, which in turn triggers your body to start it’s healing mechanism by producing new collagen, elastin, and blood capillaries surrounding the injuries (which can last up to 12 months), leading to improved skin condition and youthful appearance.

    I believe these people know what they are doing. And no, the holes don’t stay open, it’s not that big of a hole to cause infections just like that. Do you really think they would have the licence to perform a highly dangerous cosmetic treatment? Because, some people make it sound like it’s an extreme health hazard, when in fact, it’s a procedure like any other. The skin actually benefits from the little ‘torture’. It sort of wakes up, starts breathing, producing and looking way better than it did before. Think about it, before you jump to foolish conclusions. Some of these comments sound like you people were born on Mars. I love skin needling, and the skin needling results are amazing!

    Don’t these tiny holes in the skin create some kind of a hole that stays open? It appears to me that any kind of dirt, specs of tiny dirt or bacteria, can get into these hole while we are recovering. That to me seems even more dangerous than the entire treatment. And to tell you the truth, I’d be scared of the pain, because it sounds so bad. Needles puncturing skin, oh God… And think about it, I read something about different needle lengths. The bigger the needle the bigger the hole is to stock all the potential dirt and things. It looks like an infection paradise… I don’t know, I wouldn’t there, think of the scars you could have afterwards!!! Who guarantees that it’s all going to heal? Nobody, there are no such claims here or anywhere else online. The entire thing is not hygienical, even more dangerous than surgeries!

    HI! I wanted to share some helpful advice, as a woman who has experienced many things in life, and can think clearly and rationally about all these things. Make sure to do all the necessary tests, and you have to be very aware of the fact that there are side effects to everything, although this isn’t surgery, it’s still dangerous and you can undergo infections and scars which can never fade.
