Much of the fear around microneedling is presented in the lack of knowledge. Talking about poking your face, one of the most sensitive areas of your body, with tiny needles, sounds entirely unpleasant. Even still, some take the plunge and go for it, and most are glad they did.
When you get to your appointment, we'll start with a numbing solution that covers the entire face. Your skin will absorb the topical numbing cream and make the experience much less painful. While it helps, there will be a minor amount of discomfort, but, in general, the treatment itself is relatively fast. Most patients say that it feels like five minutes (but, shh, it's about 20).
After the numbing cream sits, we will perform the procedure. As mentioned above, it is relatively fast and with minor discomfort. Areas with less volume above the bone are typically a little less comfortable, like the hairline and jawline, but only some patients report this.
Following the procedure, there will be minor downtime. You will experience some redness, but it typically goes away within a few hours. By the next day, you can resume your normal skincare routine and will notice a difference in the appearance of your skin both in color and in the size of your pores.
The short downtime, ease of the procedure, and innumerable benefits are what make this procedure one of the best, innovative options on the market today.
