Skin Needling

For Scars, Stretchmarks & Wrinkles

Dragonfly Ink is one of the few tattoo studios in San Francisco to offer Skin Needling as an effective, natural, gentler alternative to laser resurfacing. Skin Needling goes by a number of names including “needle abrasion,” “intradermabrasion,” and “percutaneous collagen induction.”

Skin Needling is used to smooth out scars, minimize wrinkles, and to even the tone of the skin by bringing more tone to lighter skin discolorations. A sophisticated technique, Skin Needling promotes the body’s natural production of collagen and pigment-producing cells called melacantis. Skin Needling an all-natural, non-evasive process that rejuvenates the skin – similar to laser resurfacing but without the harsh damage to the epidermis.

Skin Needling works by making microscopic punctures in the epidermis. This stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing process, breaks up old collagen strands in scars and wrinkles, produces natural collagen and melanocytes, and results in smoother skin.
