  1. Hey everyone, I have just went in for my third needling session yesterday. This time around my skin has not nearly turned as red as the first and second session. I am really looking forward to the next few weeks to analyze anymore progress on my scars. Only time will tell, but till then any questions feel free to ask and I will try the best of my ability to answer them in a timely manner. Good Luck everyone!
  2. Alright everyone it has been approximately one week since my second needling session. As an update, my skin color is back to it's normal color, no more light pinkish color or any sign of needling done on either of my cheeks. The area of my left cheek that was mainly needled to give you all a better idea of the size of the patch of scars. It would be as or almost as equal to an egg placed upon your cheek tilted at a 40-45 degree angle. Noticeably, that sector of the skin is plump, compared to
  3. Okay it's day 4 since my second needling session. My skin still has a "slight" amount of pink color throughout the patch of scars that were needled. Plumpyness still appears, I do notice that the patch of scars that were needled on feels a lot more "firm", and "tight" compared to my right cheek that feels normal and "relaxed". Based on my observation, it's tough to say that the scars have improved yet, but due to the plumpyness it definitely helps with the appearance of the scars. Due to the "
  4. I'll be more than happy to keep you guys updated with my progress. So far, the redness has gone away since thursday afternoon. The red patch of scars that were needled on my left cheek show a "pink" color now. I'm assuming my skin will go back to it's normal color by tomorrow at this rate. One thing that I do notice different since my first needling session was that, now there is a "plumpyness" still present on the sector that was needled. I am aware that the "plump" look is only temporary. I
  5. Yes, she charges $200 an hr. But Let's say you only need a sector of your face done and it will only take 15-20 minutes, she will deduct a percentage out of the amount of time it should only take. She also teaches classes on this skin needling technique, and if anyone was to get their procedure done during her class sessions in front of her students a 50% discount will be given.
  6. Hey everyone, Just to help out anyone who is interested in getting a needling session done in Southern CA. A woman by the name of Susan Church of the International Institute of Permanent Cosmetics located in Irvine/Newport Beach area performs this procedure quite well. I have just finished my 2nd session today, prior to my first session a year ago. My scars consists of rolling and boxcar type scars that I would consider to be shallow. Based on my results, from the first session
  7. Does this method work for shallow scarring as well or only redmarks? This thread is getting to long to read every post. Any feedback would be great. THANKS.

    Wow I'm impressed on the type of results you mention getting from performing the saline injections yourself Scorpion.... I'm just curious, what kind if scars do you have? and what type responded well to the injections? Thanks.
  9. hey Rustymetal... How much did you pay for this procedure? It sounds convincing.
  10. Is this a permanent filler? Or how long does this filler last? and the cost for the procedure? Just curious...thanks.
  11. I have shallow boxcar type scars on my cheeks. They look like tiny suacer type scars. Will this procedure improve all types of scars? Or just ice pick type only? thanks.
  12. That concept sounds really interesting..Some guy provokes his skin to break out and when the pimple heals the scar heals as well. *wow..that does make sense in my mind. The only thing is..how would you provoke that particular area alone?..I wouldn't want the smooth skin to break out.
  13. Oh yeah I'm aware that Zulu does the service but the only thing is they charge a 50.00 scheduling fee so on top of the 150.00 the needling costs I will have to pay 200.00 total. Which I don't feel right doing. But thanks anyway.
  14. Desperately trying to find a tattoo parlor who performs skin needling in S. California. more specifically Orange County. Any listings would be great. Thanks.
