What Results Can You See After One Microneedling Treatment?


Microneedling is a derma roller technique that pricks the skin with long needles. The aim of the procedure is to stimulate the production of new collagen and skin tissue, resulting in skin that is smoother, firmer, and more toned. Microneedling is most often used on the face to heal burns, acne, and enlarged pores. 

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that has no downtime. It is considered healthy for the majority of people who are in good health. People who take such acne drugs or women who are pregnant should avoid the treatment. For a few days after the operation, you can feel mild redness and pain.

The total time spent on planning and procedure is around two hours. For this operation, you'll need to see a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or cosmetic surgeon. In certain states, if supervised by a practitioner, an aesthetician will be able to perform the operation. For better outcomes, you may need at least four treatments, if not more.

It's also used in anti-aging treatments including eyelid surgery and treating sunspots. Although the potential function of collagen in hair development, microneedling is ineffective for hair loss.

If you're in good health and have skin conditions that haven't adapted to home therapies or other dermatologic procedures like peels, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. This may also be the last move before deciding on plastic surgery for anti-aging and other issues.

Microneedling is most often used on the face to treat the following areas:

  • uneven skin tone
  • acne marks 
  • hyperpigmentation
  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • large pores
  • sagging skin

Microneedling is often used to heal stretch marks in other parts of the body, in addition to facial concerns. When paired with fillers, microneedling was shown to be beneficial for stretch marks on the thighs and abdomen in one study.

This technique will also be used to treat scarring in other areas of the body. Microneedling, on the other hand, is also seen on the ears.

How to prepare for the procedure?

Speak to the doctor before the surgery on how you should plan so that you get the best possible result. Certain drugs, such as ibuprofen and acne medications, can require you to avoid taking them just before the operation.

Your doctor can also advise you to avoid using topical retinoids before the procedure. Certain side effects can be reduced as a result of this.

What results can you see after one micro-needling treatment?

Microneedling isn't as invasive as cosmetic surgery, so there's no downtime. Emory University claims that most individuals require relatively little if any, downtime.

During the first few days after the procedure, you can experience skin inflammation and redness. This is a common reaction to the minor “injuries” caused by the needles.

If you're happy, you should return to work or school after the treatment. When the redness fades, some people use camouflaging lipstick for the first few days.

Sunscreen is also a must because the skin becomes more sensitive to the sun.
