Treatment & Results
During the procedure, the doctor makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. The doctor will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too. Before getting started, the doctor will use a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of pain. This is done about an hour before your treatment. The process takes approximately 30 minutes. The doctor may then apply a serum or calming treatment. In total, you can expect to be at the office for a couple of hours at least. After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. In theory, you should see results within a couple of weeks.
