Additionally, the needles used during microneedling range from 0.5 mm to 2 mm, and they don’t reach the deeper layers of the skin. You may feel slight discomfort as the microneedling pen moves over more sensitive areas of the skin, such as the forehead and jawline.  Continue reading “Everything You Need To Know About Microneedling”
