The skin is not ablated or removed in this procedure so scarring is extremely rare. Some people develop milia (small white dots) on the skin as it heals. Temporary acne-breakouts may also occur.
The face, hands, neck, back and chest can all be treated with skin needling. Skin needling is suitable for all skin types and as compared to light based treatment of skin, there is also less chance of pigmentation problems after skin needling has been performed.
