Does SkinPen Microneedling Hurt?

June 17, 2016

Forget using skin creams and serums – when it comes to getting the younger skin you want, it’s time to discover SkinPen microneedling at Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. and Aesthetic Center.

This innovative treatment uses a micro-needle to effectively stimulate collagen production in the treatment area.  With regular treatments, SkinPen microneedling can encourage cellular turnover, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and even acne scarring.

But as soon as people hear the word “microneedling,” their next question is:

Does It Hurt?

SkinPen microneedling is designed to be as painless as possible.  The needle tip is designed to be incredibly thin, while the handheld device delivers needle injections as quickly and as rapidly as possible.  As a result, many patients often report feeling little to no pain at all.  Those who did report discomfort indicated it felt like a mild tingling sensation.

To help manage any discomfort, a numbing cream or ice pack can be applied to the treatment area before the procedure begins.

What To Expect

After the procedure is performed, you may experience mild swelling and redness for a few days after the treatment.  However, most of these side effects tend to fade after 48 hours.

Some individuals see results with only one treatment; however, most patients need to undergo several sessions before achieving their ideal results.  Treatments can be performed every four weeks until results have been achieved.
