My whole left cheek is covered with very unpleasant looking scars.

Read MANY positive experiences from people who did needle their scar with one needle only...
And my sis, who is also on this forum, i just saw her scars became shallower and shallower every month when she did it!!!

But when i was looking on the internet for needles, everyone seem to use Owndoc needles?

C'mon people, u are not going to tell me there aren't any more options you can use for needling your scar?

I've used diabetic lancets 4 times in about a year. 30g and 33g. They're cheap and you don't have to worry about sterilizing them as they are already sterilized. I never reuse them. My scars haven't disappeared, but I do see an improvement in my scars.

Lancets are inappropriate due to their shape,

I did not find anything that mentioned lancets are inappropriate when I was researching about needling. Where did you come across this info and what about the shape that makes it inappropriate for scar needling? I'm not doubting you--I just want to do more research before I needle again.

It's correct diabetic lancets don't induce inflammation.

Well "dermarolling inflammation" Posted Image ?

Do not use diabetic lancets - because even if you get the proper gauge, the lancets have a bevelled edge which can and probably will cause scarring. And even if you don't scar, creating the surface wounds with the cutting edge will defeat the entire purpose (i.e., the purpose of creating the wound-healing cascade for skin that isn't damaged on the surface - the lancets DO damage the surface so you get scar collagen instead of collagen that integrates seamlessly with the natural "fabric" of your skin)

Nope.avi-

Thank you for sharing the info! I started needling with lancets after reading about it in this forum, but I somehow missed this detail about lancets.

My scars have responded really well. I needle each scar about 15 times and I run through 4 lancets. This works out to 4 punctures per needle. I wonder how a lancet looks in microscopic view after it's been used 4-6 times.

slashes heal slower than uniform pricks, thereby increasing the risk of more scarring

Some of the scars have improved to the point where it's hard to notice them, while there are some scars that have shown very little improvement if not any. But none of them have resulted in more scarring. Perhaps the risk of scarring increases with the number of times one uses a lancet.

Single needling has worked fairly well for me. Use a 28 or 22 gauge needle, poke into the scar numerous times. Go deep enough, but should not be overly painful. It will swell a bit, and give it several weeks rest. Some scars react very well, others not so much, but overall have definitely noticed improvement. Have used on keloids with success also, not just whiter scars.

What type of scars responded well and what type did not respond well?
