Micro Needling Depth Chart

In this blog we’re exploring all things, 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.
