Thick Skin from Needling

I had needling done but the skin around my mouth has got much thicker than my cheeks. Is there any way to thin down the skin in this area? thanks

Thick skin from needling

If the skin is thick on the surface vs. a thick dermis, the treatment might be very different. You would have to be seen in consultation and if more than a cream is recommended, you must make sure you know the risks of scarring from any laser treatment suggested.
