What to Expect From Microneedling
Prior to a microneedling treatment, an expert provider will apply a topical numbing lotion to your face to alleviate any pain or discomfort. Then, they’ll glide a special device over your skin to puncture needles into it.
The needles will create controlled skin injuries, which will promote new collagen and elastin. Although you may notice a prickly sensation, rest assured it’s short-lived and quite tolerable.
Following the treatment, you may notice redness and swelling. Fortunately, these side effects will fade away in a few hours and you’ll be welcome to resume work and your daily responsibilities immediately.
Most patients can achieve their desired results through a series of treatments spaced approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart. Additional treatments may be required if you have severe wrinkles, acne scars, or stretch marks.
