Hi Guys, Aisling here once again obsessing over collagen induction therapy, also known as micro needling. For those of you who have been living under a rock, this treatment is whereby your skin is punctured with needles promoting the bodies natural healing ability. This stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting many benefits for the skin. In this blog I’ll be focusing on the the “Micro Needling Depth Chart.”
You might think that micro needling is all the same but it can differ dramatically depending on the client and their needs. In Havana Skin Clinic, we use a pen that varies in depth from 0.5mm to 2.5mm so we can always control how deep we’re needling. Don’t just take micro needling to be micro needling. Some clinics will only offer a roller with a depth of 1.5mm making treatment with them a lot different to treatment with us. It is extremely rare that we would go as deep as 2.5mm. This needle depth would mainly be used for deep stretch marks and scarring on the body.

Knowledge is Power
Do your research. Look into what treatment best suites your skin concerns before paying for any treatment or worst undergoing it. Micro needling is amazing but you need this treatment to be carried out correctly by a professional. Also, ensure that who ever is doing your treatment is opening a fresh packet or needles or roller if they are using a roller.Taken from Havana Skin Clinic’s Official blog
