Microneedling treatment details
On the day of your microneedling appointment, your face will be cleansed of any makeup or dirt, and then you will be given a topical anesthetic to help keep any discomfort minimal. The anesthetic takes 30 minutes to an hour to take effect.
Once you are appropriately numbed, the technician will remove the numbing agent and the treatment will begin. Either a derma-roller or a microneedling machine will be used to treat the damaged skin. The device will be passed over the skin, making tiny punctures. Because the needles make micro-injuries, there is a small amount of blood, but any bleeding will stop by the time you leave.
Microneedling takes about 15 minutes for the face. After the microneedling portion is complete, a cooling mask will be applied to your treated skin for about half an hour. After this, topical skincare products or a serum may be applied as well. Multiple treatments are recommended for the best results.
