How much does it hurt to have microneedling treatment?

Microneedling and Pain
Our patients numb for the procedure so they do not find it painful. The depth of penetration is more important to the results rather than the size of the needle. Depending on the area treated and an individual’s skin thickness, the depth will be adjusted. At our office the procedure can go as deep at 2mm.
Not terribly painful.
There are different types of microneedling pens utilized to perform the treatment. There are also dermal rollers that are utilized in microneedling. The actual needles themselves are very small. You will need to ask your Practitioner the actual size of the needles they are utilizing, how deep they go, how many passes they perform and what pen they are using. Some pens have an adjustable speed as well. In my office I offer either a topical comfort cream or a topical numbing cream depending on the patient's comfort level. The treatment itself is fairly quick and not terribly painful. My patients tell me it's uncomfortable but worth the results and outcome. Remember, always do your research and go to a professional, well-trained Practitioner. Good luck!
Micro needling Is Not Much Painful
This depends on the treatment intensity. But as the needles are very tiny the pain is most likely to be minimal. If you have sensitive skin, you can apply numbing cream to minimize pain during the procedure. You will experience some redness and mild swelling for 2 to 4 days. You might even notice a slight bruising or tiny blood spots, but they will disappear in 24 to 48 hours. Your skin will become smoother and radiant in a week.

Very minimal discomfort with microneedling
The treatment is not painful. We apply a numbing cream that sits on the skin for 20-30 minutes prior to treatment. Our patients have come in nervous, not knowing what to expect and once we start the procedure they are so surprised how painless it is. There are some areas that are more sensitive but very tolerable. We use PRP with our microneedling which leads to quicker healing and the treatment is more comfortible.
Honestly, we have not treated a patient that did not love their results!
