How Long Does Microneedling Take?

June 15, 2021

Have you heard about microneedling treatments and want to see what all the buzz is about?

If so, you’re in for a treat. Microneedling is one of the best treatments for rejuvenating and refreshing skin tone, especially for people that have:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • And more

But despite all that excitement, you’ve got a pressing question that needs to be answered: “How long does microneedling take?”

As it turns out, the duration of your treatment session may be shorter than you think. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from your microneedling experience at The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT.

Average Length of a Microneedling Session

Although every patient is different, most people can expect to spend up to an hour in their microneedling session.

Here’s what you can expect during this treatment session:

  • At the beginning of the treatment, your face will be numbed with a special topical anesthetic cream. This step helps ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the duration of your treatment.
  • If you opt for microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment, a few teaspoons of blood will be collected from your arm, processed, and prepared for injection.
  • The majority of your microneedling session will take about twenty to thirty minutes. During this time, the microneedling device will glide across your face as it is used to penetrate the dermal tissue for maximum results.
  • At the end of your treatment, ice may be applied to the face to help mitigate any lingering discomfort.

If you have any additional questions as to how long your microneedling treatment may take, schedule a consultation at The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT. During your consultation, we can answer any questions as to how long your session may take, as well as how many sessions you may need to see results.

Recommended Number of Treatment Sessions

Depending on the results you’d like to achieve, you may need three to six microneedling treatments. 

We recommend scheduling these treatment sessions about four weeks apart, which allows the skin to heal and recover from the previous session.
