What is Microneedling?
Let’s start with a basic understanding of what microneedling is. Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick your skin. The purpose of microneedling is to generate new collagen and skin tissues. This will give you smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. People will use microneedling to target scars, wrinkles, and large pores. Many people are drawn to microneedling as an option to help get rid of acne scars on their face.
Many people want to know what they can expect when they go in to have microneedling done.
When you come in we will apply a topical anesthetic to help reduce the chances of any pain and allow about an hour for the numbing cream to seep into your skin. Then the doctor will come in and use a pen-like tool to make small pricks under your skin. The pinpricks are very small. Most people do not notice them at all after the procedure. The doctor will make sure that they treat your face evenly so that your skin will rejuvenate evenly. When they are done with the procedure they will apply a serum or calming treatment. The entire procedure takes a few hours. Most patients report that they did not feel any pain during the actual procedure. After the procedure your skin will be red. This will only last for a few hours though before your skin returns to its normal color. Some people find that their skin is red for a few days. If it continues past a few days you will want to contact your doctor. You may have a few areas that have small amounts of pinpoint bleeding. You may also experience some itchiness afterwards but this does not happen in a very large amount of patient.
