Microneedling is a powerful and unique approach to rejuvenating your skin. It prompts the body to replace damaged and old skin with fresh skin cells. This helps in minimizing wrinkles, erasing age spots, and brightening the complexion. Results of the treatment are not immediate though.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides microneedling skin rejuvenation treatments to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding communities.
Time Taken for Results
Microneedling offers an array of results you would love. Some of the results, such as skin tightening would show up almost immediately. However, others would take around 4 – 6 weeks to fully develop. This is the time taken by the average human body to produce collagen for newer and healthier looking skin.
Waiting Has its Benefits
Everyone loves instant gratification. However, there are a few things in life that are worth the wait. This includes microneedling and its broad range of benefits. There are two important advantages to the fact that microneedling needs time for results to show.
First, the skin that forms is completely natural. It takes a little longer than other treatments because your body is working to produce new skin. The treatment sends the right signals to your body to get right to work. No part of the process makes use of stitching, incisions, or anything unnatural.
The second major advantage is that the changes are gradual to show. You won’t leave work looking one way on Friday only to show up shockingly changed on Monday. Nobody in your office will be prompted to gossip about the work you got done. You will gradually start appearing younger and fresher. Your skin will also appear healthier than before.
Number of Microneedling Treatments Required
Most adults require anywhere from 3 to 6 treatment session for final results to manifest completely. 1 to 2 treatment sessions are enough for younger people. The number of microneedling sessions required completely depends on the unique cellular turnover rate, skin condition, and your age.
You can keep coming back for maintenance appointments every 3 to 6 months once you have the results you want. This will help you maintain your youthful freshness. You may also combine your microneedling treatment with other aesthetic procedures.
Longevity of Results
Every person has a unique skin. It is impossible to say how long the effects of microneedling will last on your skin. However, most people can expect to enjoy the results of their treatment for at least 8 to 12 weeks. You may be able to enjoy the results for far longer if you take care of your skin. For instance, you should avoid stepping out in the sun without a sunscreen.
Steps to Extend Results
You should take care to drink at least 8 cups of water each day. Don’t hesitate in drinking more if you live in a dry climate or lead an active lifestyle. Get plenty of B vitamins and vitamin A, C, D, E, and K. Avoid smoking wherever possible.
