  1. Hi Dragonfly, just wondering...do you know of any tattoo artists in the Chicago area who does needling? Thanks a bunch, Kaori

  2. Needling can work on any depressed/indented scar (even wrinkles) As for "shaving" scars, I'm not an expert. I do specialize in covering scars with tattooing, and some of my clients have had different treatments (don't know which) to cut off the raised scars only have the scar made much worse.
  3. I would strongly recommend against using a tattoo machine on yourself unless you are trained. You do not want to over work it, go to deep, or go outside the scar boundries- all of which could lead to hyperpigmentation or more scarring. Use the roller if you are gonna do it yourself, but be cautious about going over non-scarred skin. good luck
  4. I've been trained in the needing procedure that dermarollers are designed to mimic. You can't hurry the process, deeper needle may or may help, but it still won't be any faster. The way it works it to stimulate the body's natural production of collegan. It takes weeks to months for this process to work. Good luck, s
  5. I am a tattoo artist with specialized training in skin needling. The process is really rather gentle, and less damaging than lazer treatments. It works by stimulating the body's natural wound healing reaction to produce natural collagen and elastin to "plump" the scarred skin to a more smooth texture. Nothing is injected. With microscopic punctures in the epidermis, Skin Needling is minimally invasive with little damage to the epidermis. Downtime is minimal and easy. The advantage of needl

  10. I am a tattoo artist with specialized training in skin needling. The advantage of needling is it is precise, not invasive or overly harsh, has a low downtime/healling time and is all natural- no chemicals or injections. The problem with dermarollers is that it is random and you run the risk of increasing collagen in areas you do not want it increased. In looking for a practictioner of needling, be sure s/he has some training. Good Luck
