Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

What Is Microneedling Mesotherapy?

Microneedling is the insertion of many super fine small needles into the skin for the purposes of rejuvenating the skin in the treated areas. Many people are familiar with the "dermaroller", but at Revivify Anti-Aging MedSpa in Boca Raton we use the "SkinPen". Currently it is the only FDA approved microneedling device.

What Does The Microneedling Process Involve

The skin is cleaned and numbing cream is applied. We wait for 30 minutes to the numbing cream to take effect. The cream is then cleaned off and the face is wiped with a sterilizing solution. A little handheld pen like device using a sterile, disposable tip is then used on your face. You might feel the vibration from the apparatus. During the process we use hyaluronic acid for optimum benefit.

What Will I Look Like After My Microneedling Treatment?

Most people will experience redness and mild swelling similar to a mild sunburn for 24-48 hours after their microneedling treatment and there may be minimal pin-point swelling or bleeding. We'll use a soothing serum on your face , so that it is going to look moist. Within a couple weeks, you will see that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking, but the full effects will not be seen until a couple of months later.

Can I Use makeup After Having My Microneedling Treatment?

For the first 4 days following your Revivify microneedling procedure, you should only use a mineral based foundation, as it doesn't build bacteria. On the 5th day and thereafter, you can go back to using your regular foundation product.

How Long Before I See Results From My Microneedling treatment?

Most see a change after their first treatment, or at least in just a few days. Results can vary based on the health of your skin. True changes are likely to be seen as soon as 1-2 weeks after your first microneedling treatment.
