A Personalized Microneedling Treatment Plan
Since microneedling is used for so many different skin issues, there’s no one-size-fits-all appointment schedule. Your aesthetician will assess your current situation and expectations, then develop a personalized microneedling treatment plan just for you.
While each patient’s treatment plan is different, most microneedling treatments are scheduled 4-8 weeks apart.
Several factors come into play when deciding how often to schedule microneedling appointments, including:
Skin that is already compromised for any reason will require a less aggressive treatment plan initially to avoid permanent damage. The effects of aging are common reasons that skin is compromised, but any type of damage can be a consideration, including sun damage, wounds or sores, or extensive scarring.
Your aesthetician will determine the best depth for your microneedling treatment to ensure maximum results are obtained. Most microneedles are less than 1 mm, but some can be up to 3mm in length. The longer the needles, the longer the patient will need between treatments for proper healing.
Cellular Turnover Cycle
Another important consideration when deciding the spacing of microneedling treatment is how long it will take the skin cells to regenerate after each treatment. The typical cell turnover cycle lasts 3-4 weeks, so microneedling treatments need to be at least that far apart to be effective.
How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?
Along with the frequency of treatments, many patients also want to know how many total treatments they’ll need to obtain maximum results. You should expect at least three, but up to eight, microneedling treatments as part of your initial treatment plan. After this initial round of treatments, your aesthetician will recommend a maintenance frequency to keep your results fresh as time goes on.
Can I Get Other Treatments at the Same Time?
Yes! Many of our other aesthetic treatments can be done at the same time as your microneedling treatment. Just discuss all your needs with the aesthetician during your consultation and they’ll add other services to your treatment plan as appropriate to achieve your desired results.
