Is There Any Downtime with Microneedling Treatments?

Microneedling collagen induction therapy has become an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment in recent years thanks to major advancements in the procedures. During an in-depth consultation with a Rejuve expert team member, you’ll gain insight to all of your questions, including details on pricing, your treatment plan, and expected results, but below we will outline some of the specifics on downtime and recovery. 

About Microneedling 

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that encourages the body to grow new, healthy skin by causing microscopic injuries to the skin. This is achieved by using the patented SkinPen® microneedling system to cause multiple micro injuries to the top layers of skin in the treatment area. In turn, the body’s natural defense systems will repair themselves to leave you with smooth, beautiful, younger-looking skin.

The procedure helps the patient to generate new collagen naturally, which helps give the skin volume and elasticity. The FDA-cleared treatment is suitable for correcting minor to moderate fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and skin texture issues.

Moreover, Rejuve Med-Spa can use the SkinPen® microneedling system to treat the face, arms, hands, feet, legs, abs, back, and neck. Aside from its versatile range of uses, microneedling delivers the following benefits;

  • Quick treatments and rapid results.
  • Cost-effective treatment plans.
  • Minimal discomfort during the treatment.
  • Results based on the skin’s natural recovery process.

Microneedling Downtime and Recovery

The thought of intentionally causing skin injuries sounds a lot worse than the reality. Skin cells continually die and are replaced by new ones. Microneedling simply uses intentional injuries to reverse the impacts of reduced collagen production by forcing the body’s natural response systems to create more. By using the SkinPen® rather than inferior dermarollers, the results are improved and the side effects are reduced.

Before the procedure, your Rejuve Med-Spa expert will numb the area to avoid any pain during the treatment itself. However, the skin may experience a number of small minor irritations and side effects, such as;

  • Redness,
  • Swelling,
  • Itchiness,
  • Burning,
  • Flushness.

Many patients describe it as a similar feeling to a mild case of sunburn, but this feeling should pass within 24-48 hours. It is also likely that you’ll experience a little peeling in the first few days. Nonetheless, it is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home immediately before returning to normal activities once those minor side effects have passed.

A little aftercare is required during the recovery period, though. Sunscreen should be applied regularly to the skin. It is also important to avoid too much time in the sun while makeup should not be worn in the first 24 hours directly after microneedling. Overall, compared to other treatments, the recovery is minimal.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?

If you are less than happy with the visible presence of fine wrinkles and other skin blemishes caused by aging and a reduced rate of collagen production, microneedling is one of the fastest and least invasive solutions available. For both men and women, its impacts on a variety of skin conditions are impressive.

Microneedling can restore a youthful appearance without causing major disruption in your daily routine.

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
