Question: Today I had microneedling done to my face in a dermatologic office. They used topical numbing across my entire face before the procedure. Now, 10 hours later, I still have some numbness in certain parts of my face (like right on the eyebrow bone). is this cause for concern?

Nothing to worry about as numbness is transient

Hi

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
There is nothing to worry about as sensation will come back in few hours.
