Are microneedling results permanent? 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 are trying to treat and your skin’s overall response to the treatment.
What microneedling does?
Microneedling is a rollering procedure that causes small needles to prick the skin. This punctures the skin and causes physical trauma. By causing trauma micro needling 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 micro needling comes in to play.
Microneedling will help to address a wide range of skin concerns such as;
- wrinkles and fine lines
- pigmentation and discolouration
- stretch marks
- hair loss/alopecia
Are microneedling results permanent?
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.
Your results will last anywhere from three to six months. Many of our patients schedule follow-up treatments twice a year to maintain their results. But taking good care of your skin through a consistent at-home skincare routine can also help preserve your results.
