How many sessions of microneedling you should expect can depend on a variety of factors. How often you go, the severity of your skin condition, and other treatments you are using will all play a role in how many sessions you need. In this blog post, we will discuss what to expect from each session and how to get the most out of them!

1. What is microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to puncture the skin and create tiny wounds. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and other skin imperfections.

2. How many sessions of microneedling are recommended for optimal results?

Most dermatologists recommend a series of four to six microneedling sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, for optimal results. However, the number of sessions you’ll need will ultimately depend on your individual goals and skin condition.

If you’re looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, four to six sessions should suffice. For more severe skin concerns, such as acne scars or stretch marks, you may need eight to twelve sessions.

It’s important to note that you will likely not see significant results after just one session of microneedling. It can take four to six weeks for your skin to start producing new collagen, and it can take several months for the full results of microneedling to be visible.

So, if you’re considering microneedling, be patient! The results are worth the wait.

3. What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling is generally safe and well-tolerated. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, and itching. These side effects usually resolve within a few days of treatment.

It’s important to cleanse your skin before and after each microneedling session to reduce the risk of infection. You should also avoid using any harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or retinoids, for at least 24 hours after treatment.

4. How long will the results last?

The results of microneedling can last for several months, but they are not permanent. You will likely need to have maintenance treatments every few months to maintain your results.

If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution, you may want to consider combining microneedling with another cosmetic treatment, such as laser resurfacing or injectable fillers.

5. What’s the price range for microneedling treatments?

The price of microneedling can vary depending on the number of sessions you need and the area being treated. Most medical spas charge between $300 and $500 per session.

Should you get microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Most people require four to six sessions for optimal results, but your skincare provider may recommend more or less depending on your individual case.
