What to Expect After Your Microneedling Treatment
After you have a microneedling procedure, some side effects include redness and burning sensations. You might also notice small bumps appearing along where the needles were inserted into your skin which should disappear within 24 hours but could last anywhere between 1-3 days.
It is also normal to notice other side effects such as skin peeling, breakouts, and swelling after a microneedling procedure. However, everyone’s experience varies, so you might not encounter any of these issues at all.
What are the Best Microneedling Devices?
At Levy Dermatology, we use Vivace™ for microneedling procedures. Vivace™ is a handheld device used to create tiny micro-channels in the skin. It delivers advanced radiofrequency and LED light therapy for deep dermal rejuvenation, triggering our body’s self-healing process by producing higher collagen and elastin levels. This reduces fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks & sunspots.
SkinPen® is an FDA-approved microneedling pen that stimulates collagen production by creating micro-injuries on your skin. This process triggers a natural healing response to renew firmness, smoothness, and softness in problem areas for younger-looking skin.
