Does Microneedling Hurt?
Microneedling isn’t as painful as you may think. A prescription strength numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 5-10 minutes before the procedure begins. The numbing agent significantly decreases patient discomfort. There may be a few bony areas of the face such as the temples, forehead, and chin that are slightly tender. Patients normally report a sensation of “pressure” during microneedling. The entire procedure takes between 15-20 minutes.
It is also important to note, microneedling will stimulate your body’s production of natural collagen. Dermal science has proven that collagen synthesis is vital to healthy, glowing skin. Microneedling causes dermal “micro-injuries” that stimulate a team of inflammatory blood cells to migrate to the treatment area and aid in tissue repair which cause new collagen to be produced.
Is Microneedling With PRP (PRP Facial) Safe?
Used on thousands of patients worldwide, the PRP Facial has been shown to be both safe and effective. The PRP Facial contains only autologous components and no severe adverse reactions have been reported (nodules, bumps or granulomas). OVME harvests the PRP directly from your own blood.
Firmer, tighter skin. As we age, skin thins and loses volume making it veiny and saggy. Microneedling not only restores volume loss but also minimizes scars and fine wrinkles (think smokers lines and crow’s feet).
