Microneedling is sweeping the nation with its ability to promote new skin growth with minimal healing time. This controlled method of wounding the skin triggers the release of natural growth factors, mainly collagen, and elastin. Lasers, dermal rolling or other ablative skin treatments can cause damage to the epidermis, while Microneedling enhances the skin’s repair process. This leads to a thicker, more supple dermis, allowing the skin to create “superficial micro-channels.” These channels then promote better absorption of topical creams and serums, aiding in the overall effectiveness of the treatment.
Now, let’s get on to the real question – what happens during a Microneedling treatment?
First, you will have a topical serum applied to your skin which will numb the area being treated. Most patients report not experiencing any discomfort in the treated area after the application process. Next, based on your specific skin needs, the Collagen P.I.N. will be gently guided over the skin in the same direction until the area being treated has been covered.
Are you now wondering how many Microneedling treatments are required?
Typically, four to six treatments are needed on average. Depending upon your specific needs, the skincare professional will assess your desired area of treatment and determine what is best for you.
Is this question popping up in your mind – how soon will I see results?
The answer is one to two weeks. Now, this can vary from person to person, per treatment, and here is why – it all depends on your skin’s health. Some people report seeing results in just a few days!
