What happens after treatment? What to expect? Freckles and age spots may appear darker for 3-7 days after the treatment, this is a normal reaction. Crusting may appear on the skin as well, This is all normal and will go away within about a week-10 days. Downtime is very minimal but your skin will feel sensitive for around a day or so.

Does it hurt? The treatment should not hurt, if anything you may experience some light discomfort, but tolerable. The first treatment may feel tingly, but patients often say follow up treatments become more comfortable as the skin begins to clear.

Does it hurt?
A topical numbing agent will be applied before treatment to ensure patient comfort. The treatment should not hurt, but mild discomfort can be expected depending on the patients pain tolerance.
What to expect?
Treatments are typically well-tolerated. Discomfort can be minimized with pre-application of a numbing cream. Slight redness, swelling, and pinpoint bruising may be noticed following treatment which may last 2-3 days. A sunburn-like sensation may also be present for 24-48 hrs. Optimal results typically require a series of 3-4 treatments, Results will continue to be seen in the months following your series
Is there any downtime?
Microneedling recovery time can range from 1-3 days depending on the extent of treatment. You can return to work and school if you like after treatment, but most patients prefer staying home while the redness and sensitivity subsides. Avoid any scented products or anything with harsh chemicals or exfoliants after treatment, It is best to just let the skin breath for the first few days, and ensure you are only using gentle unscented products.
