How many microneedling treatments should I have?
Usually, three to six treatments spaced four weeks apart produce optimal results. The series of treatments you need will reflect the areas of your face that need to be corrected. Patients with scarring, deep wrinkles and substantial sun damage typically require six or more treatments to achieve the best results.
How long will it take me to see results?
You will see the first results with a single treatment. However, individual results vary based on the health of the skin. Expect to see improvements one to two weeks after the first in your series of treatments.
How long will my microneedling results last?
Microneedling triggers the formation of new collagen and elastin for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. The results typically last a year after treatment. You can prolong your results by using the skincare regimen that we recommend.
Does microneedling hurt?
No, microneedling does not hurt. Before treatment, your face is numbed with a topical agent. At the very most, some patients rate the discomfort at 2 on a scale of 1–10 (10 being the highest).
How will I look after my microneedling treatment?
Your skin might look slightly pink to moderately red for up to 24 hours after treatment. We can recommend products to minimize these symptoms and enhance your results.
Can I use makeup after my treatment?
We recommend you use only mineral-based makeup for the first four days after treatment because it cannot harbor bacteria. After that, you can return to your regular makeup products.
