General Guide (YOU should determine what is best for you!!)
Forehead: .25-.5 Thin skin/.5-.75 thick skin
Between eyebrows: .25-.5 thin skin/.5-1.0 thick skin
Eye area: .25-.5
Cheek bone: .5 thin skin/ .5-1.0 thick skin
lower cheek and chin: .5-1.0
Upper lip: .25 thin skin/ .25-.75 thick skin
Facial scarring (I recomend a professional. They will likely do depths of 1-2mm and anything past 1.25 is not for at home in my opinion)
Stretch marks are also better in a professional setting wher ethey will do depths of 1.5-2mm
Surgical and burn scars must see a pro also especially since there may be better tools to treat these conditions.
Who shouldn’t needle or should see a pro first regardless?
If you have melasma be very careful! It is a tricky skin condition that can both be helped from needling and also flair from needling! Talking to a derm and getting on a pigment inhibitor would be helpful when needling with melasma.
If you have a history of hay fever or asthma or food allergies, see a doctor first. If you have diabetes, thyroid conditions, active acne, pustule rosacea, UTIs, or immune diseases see a doctor. I am in no way telling you to needle without proper precautions and that includes talking to a doctor first. When in doubt, talk to a dr/pro.
I hope this helps. Again! Please do your own research and be cautious in what you do. 🙂 xoxoxo Penn NOTE! As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
