How long does microneedling results last? This is something that you may be interested to know if you have decided to give this procedure a try. You are an ideal candidate for this procedure if your skin has been damaged by prolonged ultra-violet ray exposure, if you have age spots on your face or stretch marks on your chest, thighs, stomach or back, or if you wish to smooth away a C-section scar from second child.
So, how long does microneedling last? Also known as collagen induction therapy, this procedure provides results that typically last around 6 months. But the durability of the treatment can vary depending on a number of factors, including the health of your collagen as well as the condition that you are treating.
One of the conditions that microneedling can be used to treat is scars. In just two to three short sessions, this procedure can remove certain types of scars, for instance thermal burn scars, acne scars as well as surgical scars. However, it is not recommended for other types of scars, such as Keloid scars. Even though it will take multiple sessions for the scars to be completely removed, once they are gone, they will not come back. In other words, in just sixty to ninety minutes of the total treatment time, you will not have to worry about scar creams or make up to conceal scars.
Microneedling can also be very effective when it comes to stretch mark removal. Just like scar removal, you may require two to three sessions in order to see your skin completely smoothed out and uniform in color. But the best part is that the results are achievable.
