How Long Does It Take to See Microneedling Results?

Experience the Life-enriching Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with small, sterilized needles, which stimulates the body to create more collagen and elastin. After four to six weeks, you should see a fresher, more youthful and rejuvenated face looking back in the mirror. It works by using the small needles to create “micro-wounds” that trigger the body’s healing process to heal the micro wounds, which encourages the skin to make collagen-rich tissue. The new tissue will be more even in tone and texture. Some of the other benefits of microneedling include:

  • Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles

Micrnoeedling is also known as collagen induction therapy for a reason. Collagen is known to improve skin elasticity and reduce visible wrinkles, and so is microneedling. The small injuries from microneedling sessions boost collagen and elastin production. These compounds contribute to structure and strength, creating a younger appearance. These new skin cells will reduce skin cells, reducing fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles.

  • Reducing the appearance of scars

Microneedling reduces the appearance of scars much in the same way it does for wrinkles. The production of collagen and elastin will also rejuvenate the skin and make scars less apparent. This makes it a great option for patients who struggled with acne in the past and might still be dealing with some of the aftermath.

  • Shrinking pores

Your pores might not be the first part of your skin that you think to treat, but this small part of your facial appearance can make a big difference. As we age, the skin naturally loses its elasticity, which causes it to stretch or sag. Along with this process, the pores naturally expand over time and become more visible with age. Pores can also appear larger during hormonal periods when oil is overproduced. Overall, the appearance of large pores is not usually seen as a positive thing. Luckily, microneedling can work wonders to shrink the pores. This is because the collagen that is produced along with microneedling creates the appearance of smaller pores and tighter skin.

  • Making skincare products more effective

Many of our patients put so much time and care into crafting the perfect skincare routine, and it would be a shame if those products were not able to fully work their magic. After you undergo microneedling, your skin will be fresher than ever, so it is the prefect time to take full advantage and apply the best skincare products for you. Whether you need anti-aging treatments, moisturizers, or other topical treatments that give your skin and extra boost, you will be able to see the full benefits after your service. The mico injuries from the service are able to receive creams, serums, and gels more readily and deliver them deeper into the dermis of the skin than when they are applied normally.

  • Minimizing the appearance of stretch marks

There are many lotions and oils that are designed to reduce stretch marks, but for many patients, topical products simply do not do the trick. Along with improving the appearance of pores, fine lines, and scars, microneedling minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. When the skin is pierced, it triggers the response from the immune system to naturally disinfect wounds, remove debris, increase the blood flow, and create new tissue.

  • Treating rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that creates redness and visible blood vessels in the face. Rosacea can be caused by a variety of elements, like sunlight, hairspray, heat, stress, alcohol, and spicy foods. Patients typically flock to topical drugs to reduce the redness, especially ones that contain antibiotics. The microneedling approach might not be as common, but it is certainly an effective way to help symptoms of rosacea. This is because rosacea sufferers tend to see their collagen breaking down more frequently than those without the condition. Microneedling stimulates collagen growth, which causes the skin to appear less inflamed and irritated.

Microneedling is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market, and we are proud to offer it at Novopelle Med Spa.
