Needling for Wrinkles and Skin Tightening
A tattoo artist told me about this and I would like to have it done.
I have been reading on it and really would like to know how its done.
I'm now getting adult breakout and I'm in my 40's and would like to get rid of some fine lines and wrinkles, without the process of cosmetic surgery.
i do not know much about this procedure - i do not do it and i do not know many doctors who do.
it makes some sense that it would work to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin a bit. the principle is that i fyou poke holes in the skin, the healing process stimulates collagen and tightens the skin. the laser (Fraxel and Active Fx) works essentially the same way, its just that the holes the laser makes in the skin are microscopic. i prefer using the laser because it is more precise and i can control the depth and density of the holes. you can't do that with the needling procedures.
also, needling is pretty bloody and i've heard that there's quite a bit of swelling.
