Microneedling is a procedure that uses small, sterile needles to slightly prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for a more smoother, firmer, toned appearance. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores. It is minimally invasive, requiring little to no downtime.
Before the start of treatment, a numbing cream will be applied over the treatment area, which takes an average of 30 minutes for the area to be numbed. Once the area has been numbed, a sterile single-use cartridge containing 14 microneedles is attached to the MicroPen EVO that will then gently glide over your skin until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The actual treatment itself typically takes between 15 to 30 minutes depending upon the size of the area.
With the MicroPen EVO being a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, there is little to no downtime: this allows patients to seek treatment every 1 to 2 months depending upon the nature of the desired results. If your goal is to resolve specific skin impurities, you may need between 3 to 6 treatments at 4-6 week intervals.
