Is Microneedling Painful?

If you’re experiencing signs of aging such as fine lines or a dull complexion and are looking for a non-invasive, non-surgical option, Derma-Tech might have the perfect solution for you. Microneedling is a fantastic option to treat those unwanted lines and to brighten and revitalize your skin for a healthy, more youthful appearance.

The other good news is that microneedling isn’t as painful as you might think! Even though the process involves inducing small injuries in the skin, it’s not as painful as it sounds. Most patients report feeling mild discomfort, which is greatly reduced.

How does Microneedling work? 

Microneedling involves a small hand-held device being gently pressed over the facial area. This device pin pricks your skin, causing a mild injury which then promotes collagen production. Collagen is the substance responsible for more toned, firm, and younger-looking skin. The main goal of the procedure is to stimulate collagen production.

Do I Need a Topical Anesthetic?

Most patients find the procedure more comfortable with a topical anesthetic, which is applied prior to the treatment. Topical anesthesia is not a must, however most experience minimal discomfort when the area is numbed before treatment.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

How many sessions you need depends on your skin type and on the area being treated. Many patients see positive results after just one treatment but a series of 3-4 treatments yield optimal results.

What Is Recovery Like?

Since Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure, recovery time is minimal. You might feel a little bit of numbness, irritation, or discomfort 24-48 hours after treatment. It is always best to avoid sun exposure during this period. In most cases you may resume wearing makeup 24-48 hours after treatment.

Are There any Side Effects?

Like with any procedure, there is a risk of side effects. Directly after the procedure, you might experience some mild irritation, discomfort or numbness, which should subside within a day or two. If you experience more serious side effects such as bleeding, bruising, or infection, consult your doctor immediately.
