Is Microneedling Painful?

You’ve heard that microneedling is one of the best new treatments for boosting collagen production, firming up facial skin, and even fading the look of hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

But you’ve also heard that microneedling uses small needles to achieve these results. 

If this information has left you feeling conflicted, we get it; after all, you want to achieve better skin, but you don’t want to experience lots of pain in order to do it. That’s why we’re here to answer one of the most popular questions we receive about this procedure:

“Is microneedling painful?”

Is Microneedling Painful?

Microneedling can be uncomfortable, especially for patients who have sensitive skin or who are afraid of needles. However, at Dr. Farole’s Oral and Facial Surgical Center, we use a special microneedling device that minimizes pain while producing fantastic results. This device delivers what we call Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling, which combines the benefits of this treatment with radiofrequency energy, which helps to tighten and tone skin.

Fractional RF Microneedling works by using a handheld device that contains several small-tip needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These micro-wounds cause the body’s collagen production to speed up, resulting in faster cellular turnover and glowing skin. At the same time, heat is delivered to the deeper dermal tissue, causing instant skin tightening that can help treat loose skin, as well as minimize wrinkles and fine lines.

What are the Benefits of Fractional RF Microneedling?

The benefits of fractional RF microneedling are incredibly exciting, especially for patients who may be frustrated by a lack of results from over-the-counter skincare products. These benefits can include:

  • Brighter, more radiant-looking skin
  • Tighter and firmer skin
  • Minimization of hyperpigmentation, including age spots and sun damage
  • Smoother skin tone and texture
  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
  • Clearer skin 
  • Faded acne scars
  • And more!

The best candidates for fractional RF microneedling treatments are those individuals who have noticeable signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Candidates with acne scars see excellent results with this treatment, as well as people with other forms of hyperpigmentation.

Dr. Anthony Farole is the best. I came in very scared and afraid. Dr. Farole and his wonderful staff were very patient with me and helped calm me down. They reassured me that i would be fine and took very good care of me. I felt no pain and the procedure went very smooth. Thank you so much for a job well done!
