The Microneedling Procedure

The microneedling procedure can differ depending on the device utilized. Your procedure will start with cleansing to ensure your safety[AA1]  and then numbing for up to 30 minutes ahead of the treatment, then the microneedling device is used to create micro-wounds in the skin that penetrate deeper layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Sessions may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, and multiple sessions spaced a month apart are recommended for optimal results. Both procedures offer outpatient convenience, allowing patients to return home immediately afterward.

Microneedling Recovery

Temporary side effects such as pinpoint bleeding, redness, swelling, and bruising may occur but usually diminish within 24 hours of radiofrequency microneedling. Recovery is usually minimal, but patients can apply ice packs, use sunscreen, opt for gentle cleansers, and refrain from makeup for the initial 24 hours to diminish any discomfort. Similarly, after SkinPen microneedling, you might experience redness, swelling, or inflammation for the first 24-72 hours. While you can resume your normal routine immediately, it’s advisable to avoid hot water, makeup, and harsh cleansers for the first day. Additionally, postpone exfoliation for at least a week post-treatment. Results from both forms of microneedling typically become noticeable 3-6 months post-treatment as new collagen and elastin formation progresses.
