  1. Kat, You should wait at least 3-4 weeks before needling the same scar again. You should see results within 2 weeks if you are a fast healer and depends how bad your scar is too begin with as well. Good luck, Kat!
  2. Kat, Oh yeah I forgot to add, make sure you pull down on your skin tightly too when needling. It makes it easier to needle your skin that way. If you ever gotten a tattoo before, that's what tattoo artists do, they pull down on your skin tightly. So make sure you do that.
  3. Hi Kat, You just have to use your judgement on how deep your going, just by going at a normal pace it should be fine. You'll get the hang of it later on..it just takes time to get use to it. And how many times did you do it per session, at least 2 to 3 times? I'm not sure why you didn't scab..it should of scabbed within a couple of days. :think:
  4. Newlife23, Try Self Needling for your scars to get improvement instead of wasting all that money on those expensive procedures which you can't really afford right now and you said it's your mom's hard earned money. So just try the self needling instead and see if it helps you, plus it's cheaper & effective too. Just read my self needling instructions. Good luck man http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Needling-...-w-t230758.html
  5. Excellent Pauperviking, please keep us updated with your future results if you can. Just make sure if you want to work on that same scar again to get even better results or maybe you are satisfied with the results already. But do wait at least 2-4 weeks for it to properly heal. Best of luck. :D
  6. LOL, RQ77..it's not that frightening silly. I'm glad that it worked on your scar that you was working on, may you have great results if you decide to work on any other scars later on. :dance:
  7. I think it's ok, as long as it doesn't irritate it or make it look worse. You should be fine.
  8. It works all on sorts of scars, I had medium to deep ones. I just don't know what they are called..but it worked really good after my needling. I only needled the ones that bothered me the most that stood out. I didn't needle every single scar that I had since some of them don't stand out, so I left those alone. For icepicks, you might want to read the TCA Cross method instead which many others use for that type of scars...I'm not sure if needling alone will help it. But good luck though Longman
  9. Yeah, your definitely gonna bleed with needling, not much though. Within a day or two, you should form a scab. If you don't see a scab then I don't think your doing it correctly. Just read the TCA cross method and try it on one icepick scar and see how it turns out. We all heal differently, some heal better than others. That's just how it is...
  10. A lot of people use the TCA Cross method for icepick scars. You might want to look on those topics and see how to do it. I tried needling and it works really good. What kind of needles did you use? I used tattoo needles to do it, maybe you should give that a try and see how it goes. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Needling-...-w-t230758.html
  11. Hey Crzyakta, That's excellent news, I hope it turns out great for you after it's done healing. Please keep us updated with your progress. That's good that you didn't get any hyperpigmentation, but there's always that slightest chance people who are dark skinned could get hyperpigmentation though. But I hope that it doesn't happen to anyone. And that we all get good results from needling. :whistle:
  12. Hey sosowie, Nah, I never tried it on my nose. I don't have any scars on it. I only read on some of the topics where some people have tried needling on their nose and ended up making it worse than before. So I was just giving others a heads up to not try needling their nose or else it will mess it up. I guess the nose just heals differently, but if someone has had success with it. Please share your experience. :D
  13. Hi Mclarensupra, There's a chance you may not get hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation, you would just have to test it out to see for yourself, maybe try it on a small scar to see what happens. I only added that because I read on a website before that it might not be a good idea if you are dark skinned, that it could lead to hyperpigmentation. But, I think I have seen pictures before on here of people with dark/light brown skin doing needling and they
