Wow, catwoman, thanks. :redface2: I didn't have any before pics taken because I really didn't belive needling would do anything for me. I've tried other things with promises that I spent a lot of money on.

Before the procedure I had rolling scars on both my cheeks. The best way to describe them would be to say that if I was outside and the sunshine was all around me, they were barely visible. However, if I look in the bathroom mirror with no lights on, and just natural light through the window, there they were, painfully obvious. The peaks and valleys of my life and acne battle.

Well, after procedure there is like an 80% improvement. It's been almost 2 weeks. I look so much better in the worst lighting situations. I've never worn my hair off my face and now I do. If my skin continues to look good, I may even cut it short! :P

Hi, I definately had acne problems and still battle with my skin. I never got a lot of pimples at the same time. I had cystic acne that would occur every month, and each blemish would last about a month and the red mark even longer. Then in another month, a permanent scar.

I would get this huge red bump that didn't have a head on it. If I put makeup over it, it would look even more riduculous because it would be a flesh colored bump, which looked worse. These cysts took forever to heal and were painful. I don't get them often anymore, since my pregnancies are over and hormones settled down, but every now and again one will start. I use Proactiv solution every day, but actually straight vinegar and then honey makes the blemish start to diminish over night.

I had needling done by a permanent makeup artist, and I had to teach her how to do it. I learned from Richard @ Loganwood. He's so cool!

It definately helped my scars!

Wow, your skin looks great! Not to mention you're very beautiful! :P I've never really heard of this needling process before...did you just use it on your scars, or also on some active acne? Anyhow, it worked really well! You don't have a trace of a scar or pimple on your face, you lucky girl! hehe.

Your skin looks really great. How much did the make up artist charge you and what exactly did you tell her to do? In what part of the country is this make-up artist? How are your results holding up?

Thanks for the great compliments guys!! :P The permanent makeup artist charged me 120$ for both cheeks. She used a rotary hand gun and just ran it over my skin, both scarred skin and unscarred, until all was red. She did this while holding my skin very tightly.

She ran the gun with a mixture of distilled water and witch hazel, but any artist can run their guns with distilled water and saline, distilled water and glycerine, distilled water and iodine, or what my artist used.

This is easier for them than regular tattoos because they don't need to stay in any lines or draw pictures with the gun.

Very easy! Any I'm still ecstatic with the results!

:drool: Wow! You look awesome. I am so happy that needling worked so well for you! Thanks you to, I am definately going to look into it.

:P Please do me a favor though. I am a tattoo artist and have been well trained in the irreversable damage that improper use of a machine can do to the skin, especially in regard to a rotary machine. This damage, including tearing, can be disfiguring. Please be sure to clarify that this should ONLY be done by a licensed permanent cosmetics (micropigmentation) artist and not by a regular tattoo artist or person at home. Thanks!

I think you look beautiful, too. I have a similar probelm. When I read your description of your scars, it immediately hit home. Is needling the technical term for your procedure? What were the potential risks?

You look GREAT!! I would love to have similar results!

You look great! Congratulations on your success! :D I'm interested in trying needling on a couple scars; how much did it cost you? Was the cost per scar treated or for larger areas?
