Overview: Microneedling Procedures
A patient can expect the treated area to appear bright red, similar to a sunburn, immediately after microneedling. The redness can last from a day to up to a week. The intensity and duration of the redness are dependent upon the number of passes performed on the treatment area as well as the particular area treated since microneedling can be performed anywhere on the body and is great in reducing the appearance of scars. In some cases, there’s pinpoint bleeding. Since microneedling allows improved absorption of creams, gels, and serums, a doctor will determine the best products for the patient post procedure. These can include bleaching or lightening serums, vitamin C or hyaluronic serums to accelerate results.
