Does Microneedling Hurt?
To ensure patient comfort and well-being, Microneedling from Santé is performed using the Eclipse MicroPen, proven to be less painful and requires less downtime than Microneedling using a Dermaroller.¹ Micropens have built in comfort measures such as the speed of the reciprocating tip and the hydrating gel applied right before the Microneedling session. In addition, your specialist may apply numbing cream to the treatment area to further ensure your comfort.
While individual experiences may vary, most patients report little to no Microneedling pain during the procedure. However, there may be some discomfort, often described as a sensation of light sand paper being moved across the skin.*
How Long Do Microneedling Treatments take?
Depending on the treatment area, most Microneedling sessions take between 15 to 30 minutes.
With the Eclipse MicroPen®, Microneedling downtime is drastically shorter compared to Microneedling with a dermal roller. After your Microneedling treatment, the skin will appear red. Experiences may vary but some patients report complete healing in as little as 24 hours. Most patients however are red for 2 to 4 days.
When will I see my Microneedling Results?
Individual experiences may vary, but for many patients, Short-term Microneedling results such as plumper skin and a more radiant complexion appear almost immediately due to the rejuvenating effects of the inflammatory response. Long-term results gradually appear over the space of several weeks to several months as the body produces more collagen.¹
