What to Expect During Treatment
The best option for patients considering microneedling is to visit a microneedling professional, such as the providers at John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa in Naperville, IL. They will ensure that the treatment is performed safely and instruct you on how to take care of your skin in the days following the treatment.
The procedure starts with a cleansing wash of the face after which an anesthetic is applied. A serum is spread over the surface of the skin to allow the medical device to glide smoothly without causing discomfort. During the procedure, the needles will create channels for this serum to penetrate the epidermis, allowing the serum to treat the skin as well.
For the next hour, you will feel like your skin is being subjected to a light massage as the microneedles pass over your skin. The needles in the pen cause tiny punctures which trigger the production of collagen.
You may experience redness and minimal swelling for a few days following your procedure. For 48 hours after treatment, you must avoid sweating as much as possible. This means no workouts, hot showers, or massages.
You also want to stay away from makeup for at least 12 hours and avoid shaving for the next two days, to allow your skin to heal effectively.
Enjoy Healthier Skin
This is one of the simplest, safest, and most effective skin rejuvenation treatments. Of course, this is not an instant fix, and the results of a session will develop gradually, typically becoming apparent after a few weeks or months. But the improvement is worth the wait.
