At Premier Health And Wellness, we can help you trigger your face’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin through microneedling. The procedure stimulates your skin’s natural repair process which, in turn, improves your skin’s appearance. At our clinic in Austin, Texas, we use the Skin Pen for all of our procedures. This device is the only one approved for microneedling.

Commonly Asked Questions About Microneedling
Below we will discuss a few commonly asked questions about the microneedling procedure:
Is Microneedling Painful?
The procedure involves creating tiny punctures in the skin so there is some pain during the procedure. However, the pain you would experience is usually tolerable and can be easily managed. The application of a topical numbing cream may also help with any discomfort you would feel during the process. The numbing cream typically lasts for 30-60 minutes and most procedures only take that amount of time.
It is also important to note that your skin will understandably be tender and sore after the procedure but usually clears within a few hours. It is safe to manage pain with the use of over-the-counter pain medication.
How Soon Will I See Results And How Often Can It Be Repeated?
After 1-4 treatments, many people have reported noticeable improvements. However, the severity of your skin condition will ultimately determine the number of treatments you will need before you notice a change.
It is reported that this type of treatment can be safely performed every 4-6 weeks. However, if you aren’t certain, it may be beneficial to discuss your skin type and plan with your doctor.
What Should I Avoid After Treatment?
For several days after treatment, it is recommended to avoid facial products that are not non-comedogenic such as makeup and chemical peels. Sun exposure is also discouraged while your skin is still healing.
Are There Any Side-Effects I Should Be Aware Of?
It is important to note that after receiving treatment your facial skin may be red and irritated. This is normal and usually only lasts for a couple of hours. Minor side-effects can occur such as dryness, bruising, or swelling, but usually go away on their own.
