It is important to follow your post-treatment
procedures given by your health care professional
for most favorable results.
How many treatments are needed?
It takes 4 weeks for the collagen to mature, so
additional treatments should be spaced at 4- to
6-week intervals, as necessary. Optimal results
can be obtained with a series of 3-4 treatments,
4-6 weeks apart. For deeper wrinkles, stretch
marks, greater sun damage, and acne scars,
6-8 treatments are recommended at 4-6 week
intervals. Adding high-quality chemical peels in
between microneedling treatments may also be
incorporated depending on the area being treated.
Is anything added to the skin during the
Yes! In addition to growth factors and hyaluronic
acid, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) supercharges the
microneedling benefits. PRP is derived from your
own blood. A small amount of blood is drawn
into a vacuum collection tube containing a cell
separator, and in a few minutes your autologous
plasma is ready — liquid gold.
Aging skin is a fact of life. The sun, air pollution,
hormonal changes, diet, stress, and smoking all
contribute to the physical and biological changes
our skin must endure over the decades.
But take heart: Medical science is providing new
and exciting breakthroughs to turn the tide.
Compare areas of your skin that are never exposed
to sun with those that are. You will see that your
skin still has the ability to look amazing.
