MicroNeedling FAQ

A certified technician or physician will utilize a MicroNeedling pen which contains many needle points. The pen is rolled across the face, which then pricks the skin hundreds of times. A numbing cream is often applied beforehand for optimal comfort. A hyaluronic acid serum and growth factor serum are usually applied as well, which enhances collagen production. This process is repeated until the entire face is treated. After the MicroNeedling procedure is complete, a healing serum is applied to the skin for optimum healing and effects.

The typical MicroNeedling procedure lasts between 20-45 minutes, which includes the application of the numbing cream and the serums.

This depends on how sensitive your skin is. Akin to feeling like sandpaper rubbing across your face, your skin may be more sensitive in naturally thinner areas such as around the eyes and mouth. It can be described as “uncomfortable.” If a numbing cream is used, this discomfort is greatly reduced.

The results of a MicroNeedling procedure are amazing! Immediately afterwards, patients report experiencing glowing skin for a few days. Full results will be visible after about 2-4 weeks after the swelling goes down. You will continue to see fuller, plumper skin for up to 3 months after your treatment.

After a MicroNeedling procedure, your face may appear reddish with slight swelling present. Slight bleeding may occur as well in small areas for the first 24-48 hours. Otherwise, your face will look younger and fuller almost immediately!

Recovery time is very, very minimal. Your skin will be swollen for a few days afterwards, and may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after the procedure. Using MDPen’s hyaluronic acid and creams, many of which are specifically formulated to compliment a microneedling procedure will help reduce this inflammation. You can resume your normal activities immediately afterwards with little to no impact to your daily life. However, it is recommended to forego makeup for a few days afterwards due to the pores being opened and are in the healing process.
