Micro-needling are either applied topically or injected superficially into the skin. So they are generally very safe if operated by a well-trained professional. 
Depending on the different types of Micro-needlings and delivery procedures, it can be painless, with minor discomfort, or with bearable pain. If injected with needles, a numbing cream is required prior to the treatment and it will still hurt a little but is bearable in most cases. If injected with the U225 device, our state-of-the-art mesotherapy gun (or mesogun), you will experience minor discomfort if numbing cream is not applied or nearly zero pain if numbing cream is applied. It is completely painless if injected with JetPeel, our non-invasive, needleless procedure. Last, topical application won’t hurt, however, before the Micro-needling are applied, the microneedling or micro-channeling procedure to create microscopic punctures on the skin might introduce minor discomfort.
It depends on the delivery method to be used. For the needles and microneedling, the downtime can be 1-3 days. In this case, you might experience some pinkness, tenderness, and/or minor swelling or bruise immediately after the treatment, which should be resolved within 3 days. For the U225 mesotherapy gun and micro-channeling, it would be zero downtime to 1 day. If JetPeel is used, there is no downtime.
A typical Micro-needling treatment program requires 3 sessions to show optimal results and is normally performed 3-4 weeks apart. After these 3 initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months.
One Micro-needling treatment session takes 30-60 min depending on the volume of the booster and delivery procedure.
Results become visible 1-2 weeks after the treatment, which will improve with every treatment session.
After the 3 initial treatments are done, the results typically last for about six to twelve months, depending on the individual’s lifestyle, age, and skin type.
