Hi all, I decided to take a moment to edit this thread seeing as it has got so long!
I thought I would point out to the new people looking at it to READ AT LEAST TO PAGE 25 OF THE THREAD!!! (or at least skim!)
Initially, the thread deals with self-needling, which has since been viewed by the scar board in general as being quite dangerous, and not advisable for treating scars. It is only at around pg 20, when Maya and Oursfan start discussing their experiences with professionals performing needling on them that the information becomes more valid to people looking into needling at the present time. Needling is now offered by more practitioners worldwide than when this thread was started, and therefore it is more advisable that you seek out someone who offers it rather than attempting it yourself.
On the whole, though, the information in the thread is fantastic.
Has anyone tried skin needling for their scars?
Check the sites above - gives you more info.
I am very excited about this and want to get it done as soon as my acne clears up. My pitting on the cheeks is quite severe.

Did you have your whole face done? How long did it take?
Are you in the UK by any chance?

Please keep me informed of how it continues.
By the way, perhaps at some stage, you could, with your husband, write out exactly how he perfomed this on you, because I want to go an approach som tatto artists here in the UK with the suggestion of needling my whole face.
I have noticed that a lot of tatoo artists are not keen on doing the face - but if I could explain to them the procedure, from a tatooists point of view, they may do it for me.
Thank you - very much

So far I am very happy with the results. As others have said the nice thing about this is that it does not damage your skin, I am able to go on with my daily routine and the area's tattooed don't look worse than a small pimple. Wearing no makeup has also made the rest of my face very clear.

Joginn - please could you ask your husband this - if someone could use like a really fine needle on themselves? And did he use some lotion on your face to numb it before using the tatoo gun?

I am so excited.
Please keep me updated as to your progress though. Thanks

Joginn - Did your husband use anything for the tattooing? My friend said that he thinks he might use witch hazel. He doesn't think it would be a good idea to do it "dry". Also, what did you do for it afterward? Did you use hydrogen peroxide? neosporin? tattoo goo?

Also, what can I expect my skin to look like after the procedure? Red? Swollen? Thanks very much.
