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?

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry about as numbness is transient

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
There is nothing to worry about as sensation will come back in few hours.
Topical anaesthesia usually causes a transient numbness which will disappear.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
