One of the first questions you’d ask when looking into microneedling is how long the results last? And that’s a really valid question. Besides how the treatment works, how many session you’d need. The answer is that there is no set time frame. Given the fact that your skin is a living tissue that changes constantly, the treatment results will all depend on a number of factors. Such as your age, your skin type, the concern your’re trying to treat and your skin’s overall response to the treatment. With all that said, based on my experience with my own patients and myself having this treatment I can give you some ideas on how long microneedling results last and what to expect from the treatment.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling is a rollering procedure that causes small needles to prick the skin. This punctures the skin and causes physical trauma. By causing trauma microneedling prompts the deeper layers of your skin to heal and rebuild. And also increases collagen production.
Collagen is a very important protein that will maintain your skin’s firmness, youthfulness and smooth texture. As you age the amount of collagen in your skin reduces. And there are other factors that will also result in loss of collagen such as acne, scarring and stretch marks. So it’s clear after a certain age and after certain skin conditions your skin may a little help stimulating the production of new collagen. This where microneedling comes in to play.
How long microneedling results last?
Once the deepest layers of your skin are penetrated by the needle a trauma is created. This triggers the healing process immediately, however more dramatic results are expected to show for 4-6 weeks after your treatment. Depending on your concerns you are treating the treatment intervals would be set between 2-6 weeks. And the recommended number of minimum of treatments are 6. This may be vary for different conditions and of course the level of skin damage we are working to reverse.
