Downtime for microneedling is generally minimal, with most patients experiencing redness and mild swelling for a few days after the procedure. Some patients may also experience mild peeling or flaking of the skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments needed varies depending on the individual’s skin concerns and goals. Generally, multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results, spaced 5-6 weeks apart.
