Needle Depth Guide - Dr. Pen Store

To get the best results from your microneedling treatment, we recommend tailoring the cartridges that you use to the area of your face that you're treating.

As different areas of the face vary in texture (for example, fattier areas such as the cheeks can handle a more robust needle depth than the delicate skin below the eyes).

Here are our recommended guides for choosing the appropriate needle depth on your face dependant on your skin type. All measurements are in millimeters (mm).

It's also important to consider the type of skin that you're treating, as thicker skin (such as mature skin or skin with stretch marks and scar tissue) may require a slightly deeper treatment to get the optimum results.

Our chart below highlights how microneedling works. The needles can penetrate the dermis at a relatively low setting and achieve the wound healing response that is needed to create collagen.
