Skin concerns can make even the most confident person feel less than enthusiastic about their appearance. After all, the face is one of the first ways we make an impression, and lack of confidence in the skin can make even the best-intentioned personal and professional endeavors go awry. Fortunately, microneedling can help. So if you are wondering how long microneedling results last, here is what you need to know:
Microneedling Treats a Range of Concerns
The first step to understanding microneedling, which is scientifically known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is to know just what this procedure can address. The good news is that microneedling can treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, pore size, and uneven skin tone. At Buffalo Plastic Surgery, we trust our microneedling procedures to the SkinPen®. The handheld device is FDA-approved to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and collagen production.
The Appointment is Painless
One of the main attractions of microneedling is that it is non-invasive and virtually pain-free. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure begins. Next, the superfine needles create tiny punctures in the skin to prompt the healing process. Each procedure is entirely customized to the needs of the individual and the entire process takes just 30 minutes.
See Results After the First Session
Due to the fact that the body will begin responding to the treatment right away, you can expect to begin seeing results after your first session. There is no required downtime, though you probably will experience some redness and swelling for the first few days. Although the number of sessions necessary will depend on the individual, you will probably require three, spaced four to eight weeks apart, in order to achieve your desired results. Your treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation.
Maintain Beautiful, Healthy Skin
While microneedling is effective at addressing a variety of skin concerns, the results are not permanent. As a result, it is important to maintain a supportive skincare routine to help extend the results of your treatment and prevent future skin damage. After the first round of sessions, you can expect to need to maintain your results every 3 to 6 months and you will continue to see improvement.
