FAQs


What does Micro Needling feel like?

As a technician lightly presses and glides an activated MD Pen™ across your skin, treatment sensations can vary. Most MD Pen patients have reported the treatment to be well-tolerated and to feel like light sandpaper moving across the skin.

Will I bleed?

The manner in which the MD Pen penetrates the skin will depend on your level of treatment. It is possible to see some pinpoint bleeding that will end shortly after the treatment session.

How long will it take to complete a treatment?

A full face and neck anti-aging treatment is normally completed within 20 to 40 minutes. Other skin condition treatment times will vary depending on the size and number of the area(s) being treated.

How many treatments should I have?

Depending on your treatment goals and your skin condition, you may decide to have a single treatment, or the practitioner may advise you to have a series of four to eight treatments spaced two to six weeks apart.

How will my skin feel after the treatment?

Normally, after two to three days, the redness and sensitivity will end, allowing a new, radiant complexion to shine through.
