Micro Needling is Not a DIY Project

Micro Needling should not be DIY

Dr. Sanjay Singh, of the Royal Surgeons College in Winnipeg, Canada, is warning people about attempting to do their own micro needling at home, instead of having a licensed cosmetic surgeon perform the procedure: “There are now many kits available for micro needling at drug stores. While micro needling is a proven process for reducing wrinkles and acne scars, it should not be attempted at home. Such a thing can easily lead to permanent skin damage and even dangerous skin infections.”

The process involves pricking the affected area with dozens of tiny needles; the treated area then begins to repair itself by creating collagen, which fills out pockmarks and small wrinkles.
