Understanding Micro-needling Needle Depth: A Guide to Targeted Skin Rejuvenation

Micro-needling has emerged as a popular and effective cosmetic procedure for skin rejuvenation. One crucial aspect that significantly influences the outcome of micro-needling is the needle depth. The depth at which the tiny needles penetrate the skin plays a key role in targeting specific skin concerns. In this blog, we'll explore the various micro-needling needle depths and understand what each depth targets.

  1. Superficial Micro-needling (0.25mm - 0.5mm):

  • Targets: Fine lines, mild wrinkles, and overall skin texture improvement.

  • Benefits: Stimulates collagen production, enhances skin tone and texture, and improves product absorption.

  1. Medium Micro-needling (0.5mm - 1.0mm):

  • Targets: Moderate wrinkles, acne scars, and enlarged pores.

  • Benefits: Encourages collagen and elastin production, improves the appearance of scars, and promotes a more even skin tone.

  1. Deep Micro-needling (1.0mm - 2.0mm):

  • Targets: Deep wrinkles, severe acne scars, and significant skin imperfections.

  • Benefits: Induces robust collagen production, reduces the appearance of deep scars, and promotes skin tightening.

  1. Medical Micro-needling (2.0mm and above):

  • Targets: Severe scarring, stretch marks, and advanced skin aging.

  • Benefits: Addresses deep-seated skin issues, enhances skin elasticity, and provides substantial collagen remodeling.

  1. Combination Micro-needling:

  • Targets: Multiple skin concerns simultaneously.

  • Benefits: CustomiSable treatment to address a variety of issues in a single session.


Understanding micro-needling needle depth is crucial for achieving desired results while minimising

risks. It's essential to consult with a qualified skincare professional to determine the appropriate depth for your specific skin concerns and goals.
