Does Microneedling Hurt?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to reverse visible signs of sun damage and aging. Treatments are typically quick, easy, and virtually painless. When it comes to getting a beautiful, radiant, and younger-looking complexion, microneedling can be one of your most powerful options. But, not all microneedling treatments are created equal.

Dr. Farole offers one of the most advanced microneedling procedures on the market at his Cosmetic Facial and Oral Surgery Center. By enlisting the help of radio frequency (RF) technology, Dr. Farole is able to give patients better results with less pain, side effects, and downtime than traditional microneedling methods. Enjoy a higher quality treatment with superior outcomes when you choose INTRAcel PRO fractional microneedling.

What to Expect from Your Microneedling Appointment?

Microneedling with fractional radio frequency (RF) is done in a simple, in-office procedure. Dr. Farole uses the INTRAcel PRO–RF microneedle (FRM™) for enhanced results with little to no discomfort. Dr. Farole is one of the few practices in Pennsylvania that’s offering this highly-specialized procedure.

INTRAcel PRO is an energy-based treatment that is able to deliver gentle, yet powerful thermal wavelengths to deeper tissue. The 2-in-1 procedure creates tiny micro-wounds which trigger the body’s natural self-healing process. Meanwhile, RF technology provides maximum skin tightening effects for instantly firmer, smoother skin. Patients can easily address their individual concerns while also benefiting from total skin rejuvenation.

This treatment can be done on all skin types and all year round. The majority of patients find the minimally-invasive procedure quite tolerable. In most cases, the application of a topical anesthetic can be applied for increased patient comfort. Dr. Farole uses advanced fractional microneedling techniques to safely and effectively rejuvenate the skin throughout the face and body.

Will Microneedling with RF Hurt Afterward?

As the topical numbing agent begins to wear off, you may experience slight swelling, redness, pinpoint bleeding and/or skin sensitivity. Most patients equate the sensation to that of a moderate sunburn. Side effects typically subside within the first 24-hours after treatment. The majority of discomfort can easily be managed with over the counter medication during this time.

Not all microneedling treatments produce the same results. Microneedling with RF technology is much more sophisticated, and produces noticeably better results than traditional methods. With regular treatments, patients are able to effectively improve long-term skin health and reverse visible signs of aging.

Microneedling with RF is an excellent alternative to CO2 resurfacing and great for professionals who are not afforded downtime or simply prefer no downtime options.

INTRAcel PRO–RF is a highly personalized procedure that can be used for either preventative care or advanced anti-aging treatments. Dr. Anthony Farole personally meets with each patient to discuss their individual concerns. Treatments are customized to help you safely achieve your short and long-term goals with as little discomfort or downtime as possible.
