Microneedling treatment can be safely done about once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks. This is the frequency that works best for the majority of patients of all skin types, but some patients find that microneedling treatment more or less frequently than this range works best for their skin and their aesthetic goals.
Treatments to Maintain Results
After your first round of treatment is completed, and you have obtained your desired results, all subsequent appointments will be used to maintain these results.
The results of this treatment build gradually, you will be able to have more time between your regular maintenance appointments than your first round. Many patients opt to have regular treatments every 6 to 8 weeks for this purpose.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling creates tiny little holes in the face to stimulate collagen growth. Collagen not only gives the skin its youthful appearance, but also improves elasticity. As we age and with sun damage, collagen is depleted from the skin. This causes our skin to lose its youthful look and feel. With microneedling, we can help increase the production of collagen by making tiny holes in your skin which causes your body to react by creating new collagen – so with this treatment you “trick” the body into thinking there is damage. Electric needling pens are much better than skin rollers and the results are more drastic with the electric pen.
Benefits Of Microneedling:
- Hair loss (also called alopecia)
- Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
- Large pores
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
What Are Results Like?
The results of this procedure are reliable and predictable. Regardless of your age or skin condition, you can be certain that you will experience the desired results.
How does one maintain youthful glow?
You can maintain a youthful glow by getting regular facials. Microneedling has the added benefit of creating thousands of microscopic channels in your skin, this allows us to get deep into collagen layers to stimulate collagen growth.
What is the length of procedure?
Duration depends on the treatment desired. For example, microneedling may take 15 minutes for face and 30-45 minutes for body. Often times we combine microneedling with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as LED light therapy or radio frequency to give you an optimum youthful glow.
