You will see healthier-looking skin once the redness from your microneedling treatment dissipates, but full results take a little time. Because microneedling works by stimulating collagen, your body needs time to respond. Typically, you can expect to see full, lasting results in 3 to 6 months.
What to Expect During Microneedling Treatments
Prior to your first microneedling procedure at our clinic in Birmingham, you’ll start by meeting with an experienced Smart Skin Med Spa provider for a 30-minute initial consultation!
We care about the success of our patients and providing them with the perfect treatment for their needs and goals. To make that happen, we’ll review your medical history and go over all of your unique aesthetic concerns before recommending a treatment.
If you’re a good candidate for microneedling, we’ll then take you to one of our clean and comfortable treatment rooms to start your microneedling procedure!
We’ll start by cleaning the treatment area and, if you elect to add PRP, drawing blood to prepare the PRP.
Your provider then uses the innovative handheld device to create a series of microwounds that stimulate healing as well as collagen and elastin production.
For treatments including PRP, we add it topically after your microneedling treatment.
The entire process for microneedling is relatively quick, generally lasting about 30 minutes depending on the treatment area.
Once you finish your treatment with us, your provider will give you a set of aftercare instructions to follow for optimal results.
Usually, you can expect a few days of redness and mild swelling before you’ll see the immediate improvements from microneedling.
Most patients will have what looks like a mild sunburn for 2 to 4 days. A little bit of swelling may follow, but you can typically expect to resume your normal makeup and skin regimen within 2 to 3 days.
