Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that encourages collagen production. It’s a great solution if you’re looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and signs of aging.
If you suffer from certain skin conditions and you’re in good health, but haven’t responded to other dermatologic procedures, microneedling could be for you.
Fast-Acting Skin Treatment
Some people report seeing results a week after their first microneedling treatment. These results include a slight reduction in the appearance of acne, a more even skin tone, and smaller pores.
But everyone is different. Everybody’s skin is different, so some people will heal faster than others. It also depends on the severity of your issues. For instance, if you have deep acne scarring, you may not see results until you have undergone two or more treatments.
After your first session, you’ll receive several post-treatment instructions. It’s important to follow these carefully. The instructions are designed to help your skin heal so you can achieve the results you want.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Microneedling involves thousands of tiny needles puncturing the top layer of your skin. The needle pricks create an injury, accelerating both the production of collagen and healing.
It is an ideal treatment if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, fine lines, and pigmentation. The treatment also works to improve the overall texture of your skin.
While microneedling may sound painful, it isn’t, provided the area is first numbed. After your procedure, your skin may be a little pink, and you may notice a few puncture wounds, but these fade within a few days.
How Often Should You Get Microneedling Done?
You can safely book your microneedling treatments every 4 to 6 weeks until you get the results you want. If your goal is scar reduction, you’ll likely need 3 to 6 treatments. For collagen induction, 3 treatments is a good starting point.
How many treatments you need depends on how your skin responds to microneedling.
Microneedling is a highly effective treatment for most skin types and concerns. Best of all, many people see results after just one or two sessions.
