How Often Should You Do Microneedling?

December 30, 2022

Microneedling is one of the most effective ways to brighten and smooth your skin. This treatment triggers the body’s natural healing responses to bring new cells to the surface. It also stimulates collagen production to help the skin look firmer and more youthful. 

What is Microneedling?

As skin ages, cell turnover slows down. At the same time, levels of collagen and elastin start to decline, causing a loss of firmness and resilience. Microneedling reverses this process and restores youthful-looking skin. It uses tiny needles that create areas of micro-damage to the surface of the skin, initiating a cascade of healing and repair. As a result, you see skin that looks healthy and vibrant.

How Does Microneedling Work? 

As the microneedling device moves over your skin, the needles create micro-channels. The cells around these channels start to heal them immediately, and cells deeper in the skin start to produce more collagen and elastin in response. As the levels of these proteins increase, skin starts to look firmer and more even. 

How Often Should You Do Microneedling?

Most people need a series of microneedling treatments to achieve their desired results. At the Langdon Center, we often recommend three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. After this series, you should plan to have microneedling every three to six months. This plan will keep collagen production in high gear and keep your skin looking youthful. 

What Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling can treat a wide range of skin issues, making it a popular choice for people seeking all-over improvement. It effectively stimulates collagen production and rejuvenates the skin. Microneedling treats issues including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough texture
  • Enlarged pores

We will customize your microneedling treatment plan to address your needs. Deeper textural or pigmentation problems may require a more intensive series of treatments to reach your goals.

Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?

Microneedling does not require any downtime, although your skin may look a bit red and feel sensitive for a day or two. You can return to your usual activities after treatment, but make sure to avoid sun exposure. Use gentle, non-irritating products on your skin for several days, and avoid scrubs or peels. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Unlike some laser treatments, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Most healthy adults make good candidates, especially those who want to replace or maintain collagen levels. You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant, have a skin infection, or have a history of forming abnormal scars. 

Dr Langdon and the entire staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Very happy with the practice and will continue to work with them in the future.
