Microneedling depth is a crucial factor in achieving the best results from this popular skincare technique. By understanding how different depths target various skin concerns, we can enhance the benefits of our at-home microneedling infusion products. 


From shallow microneedling for improved texture and product absorption to medium and deep treatments for scars and wrinkles, selecting the right depth ensures optimal outcomes.


Our research and experience at Qure Skincare show that our 0.5mm Micro Infusion products provide the perfect balance of effectiveness and safety for at-home use.


This article will guide you through how microneedling works, the best needle depths for different skin issues, and clear up common misconceptions about microneedling depth.


What this article covers:



How Microneedling Works


Microneedling involves using fine needles to create tiny, controlled punctures in the skin. In-clinic, the micro-injuries from microneedling stimulate the body's natural healing process, boosting collagen and elastin production.


Research shows that this results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Our products are designed to produce similar results and transform dull-looking skin. Our Micro Infusion devices are more effective than traditional microneedling and derma-rolling devices as they come with a specially formulated serum and 24K gold-plated needles for more controlled results.

Needle Depth Guide


The effectiveness of microneedling largely depends on the depth of needle penetration. Different depths are used to target different skin issues, and selecting the right depth is essential for achieving optimal results.


Shallow Microneedling (0.25mm – 0.5mm)


Shallow microneedling is perfect for enhancing product absorption, improving skin texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines.


From our experience, our 0.5mm Micro Infusion Facial System provides optimal results for at-home treatments. They are recommended for their safety by Dr Maxfield, a board-certified and world-leading dermatologist.


This depth is ideal for those looking to boost their skincare routine for the best microneedling benefits without significant downtime or discomfort.


Medium Microneedling (0.5mm – 1.0mm)


Medium-depth microneedling targets deeper skin concerns such as moderate acne scars and more pronounced fine lines.


Our 0.5mm products perfectly straddle this line between shallow and medium, making them fantastic for both microneedling for hyperpigmentation and microneedling for neck lines.


It's important to note that going beyond 1.0mm should typically be done by a professional to avoid potential risks.


Deep Microneedling (1.0mm – 2.5mm)


Deep microneedling is used for treating severe acne scars, stretch marks, and deeper wrinkles. This depth stimulates significant collagen production but also involves more discomfort and downtime.


We always recommend professional treatment for microneedling beyond 1.0mm to ensure safety and efficacy.

Misconceptions About Microneedling Depth


Misconception: Deeper Is Always Better


Many believe that deeper microneedling automatically yields better results. However, this isn't always the case.


According to our research, the optimal depth varies depending on the skin concern being addressed. For most at-home treatments, a depth of 0.5mm is sufficient to achieve noticeable improvements without unnecessary risks.


Misconception: Deeper Needling Produces More Collagen


While it's true that deeper needling can stimulate collagen production, it doesn't mean that deeper is always better.


Excessive depth can lead to more pain, longer recovery times, and a higher risk of complications. Studies have shown that needling at depths of 0.5mm to 1.0mm can produce significant collagen without the adverse effects associated with deeper penetration.

Misconception: There Are No Risks with Deep Microneedling


Deep microneedling carries more risks, including increased discomfort, prolonged redness, and potential scarring. It's crucial to understand that more aggressive treatments should be performed by professionals to minimize these risks and ensure proper technique.




Microneedling is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin, and understanding the appropriate microneedling depth is key to achieving the best results.


We've explored how different depths target various skin concerns, highlighted the benefits of our 0.5mm at-home Micro Infusion, and debunked common misconceptions.


Our experience at Qure Skincare shows that our 0.5mm products offer the perfect balance of safety and effectiveness for at-home treatments. Ready to transform your skin? Discover the benefits of our at-home Micro Infusion products at Qure Skincare today!
