The treatment involves the use of a DermaPen that uses a sterile single-use disposable needle tip. The adjustable needle depths allow you to customize a treatment program for specific skin problems and aggressiveness, unlike the Dermal Roller.
First, the skin is cleansed and numbing cream is applied for 35 to 40 minutes. This minimizes any discomfort. The more sensitive areas are mostly the round bony or thin areas such as forehead, lips and eyes. The process typically takes less than 40 minutes, and afterward, your skin can be somewhat red, similar to a sunburn. It takes only a couple of days for skin to look fairly normal, but results gradually become apparent.
Natural collagen regrowth happens over weeks and months, it is not an instant fix, but your skin will be much improved over the long term. If you are planning on having any microneedling treatments it’s best not to plan any social plans afterwards since the slight redness takes a few days to subside.
