4 microneedling treatments, 1 with prp, neck now has strange wrinkles all over it, mainly when turning head. Texture is rough and lines connecting pores are more visable now. At "that" age 44. A1c is 7.5. 1. Have you seen this type of wrinkling? 2. What is it? causes? Normal aging or from microneedling? 4. Can healing from microneedling have a negative affect in diabetics? 5. Does microneedling go so deep it would scar? .09mm was used. 6. Should I stop microneedling? 7. Is this reversible? HOW?

These wrinkles are from genetic loss of elasticity. You can get improvement with lasers, microneedling/PRP, and skin care. Peels are also helpful. Best, Dr. Emer.
