Micro-needling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigmentation issues. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy.
A series of 4 to 6 treatments are recommended and the frequency will depend on the intensity and depth of the needle. The initial skin tightening and pore reduction can be seen immediately after treatment. However, you won’t see your final results until four to six weeks after your anti-aging treatment. It can be safely repeated every four to six weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least three treatments, while scar reduction requires between three and six. Four to six weeks should pass between one treatment and the next. It is an amazing safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin.
