Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure in which the provider will use a tool that has many micro-thin needles. As your practitioner guides it over your skin, they create a controlled injury through the small punctures.
In most cases, your provider will recommend at least three sessions. With each treatment, the punctures will deepen as the skin thickens.
The many punctures create small channels in your skin that forces your body to create new collagen to fill them in. As the amount of collagen in your skin increases, wrinkles begin to fade, and blemishes start to disappear. After the microneedling procedure, your provider will give you instructions on how to care for the treated area once you leave the office.
treatments are needed?
The number of microneedling treatments you need depends on your skin tone and texture. Your provider will discuss your options with you and will decide how many treatments will provide you with the results you're looking for.
Usually, three treatments are recommended for most patients. For the best results, there should be at least four weeks between each treatment.
As the skin heals, it thickens and creates new collagen fibers. By waiting four to five weeks between each treatment, the skin can heal, and the needles can go deeper into the dermis each time. The deeper the punctures, the more profound the results, allowing them to last longer and your skin to become more resilient.
How long will
Many people report almost immediate results, although they may be minimal at first. The final results are most visible between four and six months later.
The results achieved at that time are long-lasting, but they aren't resistant to the underlying causes that originally contributed to the problem. If you begin noticing that the results are fading, it's a good idea to schedule a “touch up” procedure between six months to a year later to maintain your results. In addition, there are several things you can do to maintain your results:
Maintain healthy skin
Stop using tobacco products
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight
