A 2012 study from Seoul, South Korea investigated skin needling for the treatment of stretch marks.
After each patient received three treatments at montly intervals their findings were as follows: “Marked to excellent improvement was noted in seven (43.8%) patients, with minimal to moderate improvement in the remaining nine. Patient satisfaction scores showed that six (37.5%) patients were highly satisfied, eight (50.0%) were somewhat satisfied, and two (12.5%) were unsatisfied. There were no significant side effects except mild pain, erythema, and spotty bleeding”.
The treatment is done under local anesthetic and is well tolerated.
