Needle Length
« on: April 17, 2010, 03:48:46 PM »
Sarah,

I just received my dermaroller and individual needles.  Thank you I received it within one week.  Anyway with the individual needles I see they are tapered very thin just like diabetic needles but they become more blunt.  When you individually needle a scar is only the sharp point suppose to go in or is that intended to lead to the blunt part of the needle?

Thanks

The taper is so small to be nearly invisible. The actual needle is only about 2 mm long, and its taper is perhaps 0.5 mm long. The thick part is an intermediate "bar" and should not go into the skin. It is a safety feature to prevent the needle from going too deep. So no, the thicker part is not supposed to go in.
