3MD treatments are relatively painless. Deeper treatments may require topical anesthetic cream to be applied before the procedure.
Generally there is no downtime. But you may experience facial redness for 12 to 48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
Microneedling is often paired with other treatments to increase effectiveness and rejuvenation results. The microchannels created in the skin by Dermapen 3MD treatment allow for topical treatments to more deeply penetrate layers of the skin, so your aesthetician will likely recommend applying professional-quality topical products immediately after your microneedling treatment. Some patients may also choose to have chemical peels or injectables such as Botox along with microneedling to enhance their anti-aging results. During a consultation, a complete and personalized treatment plan will be created for you to address all of your goals.
