The Famous "popping Sound"..?

Recommended Posts

So I have just used a single needle on some of my individual scars.

I have read so much about the popping sound meaning you are breaking up scar tissue.

I did get the popping sound on the scars and so to test the theory I used the single needle on a unscarred part of my face - where I have never even had acne before (therefore no chance of there being any scar tissue.) And I also got the popping sound....

Is the popping sound actually scar tissue breaking up or just the sound of the needle piercing your skin?

That's interesting! I've head quite interesting things about this. I've tried to needle my scars and sometimes I hear this popping sound but sometimes I don't. That's odd.

Please, let me know how deep did you pierce through the tissue. Are you using a single needle or a specific needle?


As far as I know, the "popping sound" means you're breaking hard tissue (scarred tissue).

I've been needling & the popping sound will come if you needle good or scarred skin if your pushing hard enough to break the skin, some just needle lightly & don't hear it popping because they just roll over the skin to get the blood circulating or to make very small channels to let their serums sink in a little more. If you roll hard on a scar your breaking the skin & what's under it so your hitting scar tissue. I think. I've been doing it for a couple months now & I see as good results as if I got a fraxel which I had 7 of. You would think I'd have perfect skin by now but all I found was more damage from them & needling is like fraxel without the heat so I like that better . I got a couple line burns that don't go away from fraxel. I originally went for Erbium laser for my scars but came out much worse, scars on top of scars, fat loss, different texture. So for me needling & putting copper peptides or vit c on after is the better choice. Supposedly it causes a wound (like fraxel) that the skin tries to heal & the skin repairs itself with collagen to help raise the scar. If you do go hard you'll draw blood which is what I did the last couple times. It takes a week for me to heal, sometimes more but then I don't do it again for 5 weeks to give it enough time to heal. Check out youtube. & put in derma pen or derma rolling. Lots come up about it. I bought a dermapen called My M for about 60.00, it's easier & doesn't hurt as much & the tips are a lot cheaper than to keep buying rollers every 5 or so uses.

I have been using a single needle which is 1.5 mm in depth. I think at least in my case I get the "popping" sound when the needle pierces my layers of skin.

I don't think the sound actually means it is breaking up scar tissue.

I am not saying that needling itself doesn't break up scar tissue but for me at least the sound is just more of piercing.

Ever since i started using tattoo needles,it does not make the popping sound.It definitely pierces the skin though because it bleeds!I always got the popping sound when i used a regular needle or a derma stamp.The tattoo needle works the best for me and i am finally starting to see results.
