How Long Does Microneedling Last?
For best results, we recommend that you begin with a series of microneedling treatments to reach your skin goals, followed by maintenance treatments to keep your skin firm and even. Most people need between three and six treatments four weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments you need will depend on the severity of your skin concerns.
After your last treatment, you can expect your microneedling results to last three to five months. Some people may go longer between follow-up treatments, but we usually recommend one or two per year. You can keep your results longer by taking good care of your skin. We can recommend skincare products and sun protection.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
The SkinPen® is safe on all skin types and tones. Most people make good candidates for microneedling. If you want tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with minimal downtime, microneedling may be an excellent choice. Tell your skincare professional about any health problems you have.
Is There any Downtime With Microneedling?
After your microneedling treatment, you may notice redness and sensitivity resembling sunburn. This will start to improve within a day or two and should resolve completely within three or four days. During healing, avoid sun exposure and use quality sun protection. UV rays damage collagen, so make sure to protect the new collagen your skin is building.
