Is your skin looking lackluster? Do you have fine lines and wrinkles that you would like to minimize? If you answered yes to these questions, microneedling may be the right treatment for you. Microneedling is a safe, non-irritating treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns. But how long does it take to see results with microneedling.
What is microneedling and how does it work?
Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure in which a small device is used to create micro injuries in the skin, which stimulate cellular renewal.
The micro-channels trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response causing the cells to regenerate, and new, fresh collagen to develop. The new skin cells restore the youthful glow of the skin, and the additional collagen makes it plumper and firmer.
Most patients need at least 3 treatments to get maximum results with microneedling.
How long does it take to see results with microneedling?
After a microneedling session the skin will be slightly red and swollen for approximately 2-3 days. It usually takes about 7 days to see real improvement in the tone and texture of the skin. However, the process of building new collagen takes time, so it will take several weeks to see the best results.
