Microneedling is a treatment consisting of many tiny needles piercing the epidermis. Microneedling stimulates collagen production to improve skin texture and help minimize acne scars, fine lines, saggy skin and wrinkles. Some patients also notice pore shrinkage following treatment. The microneedling process lasts 10-20 minutes and patients that use numbing cream (available for purchase at KDC) are unlikely to experience pain. There is very little downtime needed to heal from a microneedling treatment, however patients will usually experience redness for some hours following.
Certain areas of the face may feel more sensitive than others during treatment. Your provider will determine the depth and combination of treatments to best suit your individual needs.
