 How long do microneedling results last?

No skin enhancement procedure is permanent. Skin is living, dynamic tissue, always growing and changing. As we age, that process slows and we don’t like some of the changes we see. Life also brings us scars – from acne, injuries, or surgery – or stretch marks. Highly targeted procedures with SkinPen microneedling treatments can help correct these issues, but if microneedling isn’t permanent, how long will the results last?

Every person’s skin is a bit different, so there is no precise answer. Everyone’s skin reacts somewhat differently to injury, too. This is important because a micro needling pen creates microscopic injuries in the skin in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. It is the healing process that produces improved-looking skin.

That said, we can make general predictions about the effects of micro needling, based on a wealth of clinical studies and real doctor-patient experiences with the procedure.

Visible results, almost immediately

SkinPen microneedling is a very reliable treatment as it can be used anywhere on the face or body. It is particularly useful for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a more radiant, youthful appearance. It is also highly reliable for reducing stretch marks and acne scars. But these skin conditions go deeper. For that reason, it may take longer to see desired results.

SkinPen microneedling is not an aggressive procedure. It is a gentler approach designed to provide incremental results. Dr Wen recommend that patients receive multiple procedures to achieve desired results. Procedures are usually spaced four to six weeks apart.

Nonetheless, patients usually begin to see the superficial, initial results within a week of their first procedure. Radiant skin is apparent as the deeper skin continues its healing process.

Maintaining Lasting Results

The effects of a micro needling pen are not permanent, so Dr Wen recommend a maintenance program which could include quarterly procedures to keep skin looking its best.

To enhance your SkinPen microneedling results, Dr Wen may also prescribe customised skincare for you, with Universkin.

Longest-Lasting Results Start With A Personal Consultation

Each patient is unique, in terms of age, skin type, and the type and location of the skin condition to be treated. Personal consultation with a well-qualified provider is the only way to know if micro needling pen procedures are the best choice and to determine how many procedures will be needed to produce and retain optimal results.
