Microneedling Magic: How Long Can You Expect the Glow to Last?

At Ambiance MD Medical Spa in Green Bay, WI, our microneedling can help rejuvenate your skin and give you a radiant glow while enhancing your skin’s texture. This gentle technique encourages the natural production of collagen and elastin, key components that contribute to youthful and vibrant skin.

The benefits of microneedling can last a long time and can offer results that make your skincare routine even more effective. However, factors such as skin type, age, and post-treatment care can influence how long the improved appearance lasts. We always dedicate time to discuss these variables with you, and we make you feel like family by giving you the care and attention you deserve.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive method that employs a device outfitted with small needles to make tiny punctures in the skin’s upper layer. This technique aims to stimulate the body’s inherent repair processes, prompting cell regeneration and collagen formation. It effectively targets issues such as fine lines, scars, and the general texture of the skin.

What to Expect From a Microneedling Treatment

Each microneedling session can take around an hour, depending on the size of the area we are treating. The device that we use, called the SkinPen®, is a handheld device that has rows of sterile needles. It is placed on the skin, where it punctures a small section at a time at very precise depths. During the treatments, patients can feel a scratching or tingling sensation from the needles that is usually not painful. We can put numbing cream on the skin to reduce this sensation.

What Results to Expect Right After Microneedling

Immediately following a microneedling treatment, patients may notice mild redness and swelling, similar to a light sunburn. This is your body reacting to the treatment and starting a controlled inflammatory response. You can expect to see the redness fade over the next day or two. As the skin begins to heal, you may see a noticeable improvement in skin texture and a brighter complexion, all within the first week.

The Science Behind the Glow

The glow from microneedling comes from increased levels of collagen and elastin in the skin, the exfoliation of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, and the increased cell renewal that happens as your skin health improves. This glow can happen sooner for some than for others but is a common benefit of microneedling.

Long-Term Benefits of Microneedling

Regular microneedling services can lead to long-term improvements in skin health. Over multiple sessions, microneedling can reduce the appearance of scars, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. The cumulative effect of increased collagen production not only revitalizes the skin’s appearance but also enhances its resilience against aging factors.

How Long Do Microneedling Results Last?

The longevity of microneedling results can vary widely among individuals, depending on how their skin responds. Visible improvements can last a month or more. Many patients opt for regular sessions to maintain their skin’s enhanced appearance.

What Can Influence the Duration of Your Microneedling Results? 

  • Your Skin Type: Microneedling results can vary depending on your skin type. You may see different results or durations depending on whether you have dry, oily, or sensitive skin.
  • What Conditions You Want Treated: The specific issues addressed by microneedling may determine how long the results last. If you have more minor concerns like fine lines, you may see longer results than if you are treating deeper lines or scars.
  • The Condition and Age of Your Skin: Younger skin typically regenerates faster and more effectively and is still producing more collagen and elastin naturally. Results may last longer for these patients. You can also have extended results if you have well-maintained skin, free of extensive sun damage or environmental stress.
  • The Frequency of Microneedling Treatments: Regular microneedling sessions can extend the duration of your results. Treatments every four to six weeks help maintain the level of collagen stimulation needed to continue seeing the benefits. Typically, a series of treatments followed by periodic maintenance sessions are recommended to keep the skin looking refreshed and vibrant.

How to Enhance and Extend the Glow

What Products Should I Use After Microneedling?

After your microneedling treatment, make sure to use products that support skin healing and hydration. Hyaluronic acid serums or other nourishing products can hydrate the skin without clogging pores. Use a gentle, mineral-based sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage while it is still sensitive from the treatment.

Can I Exfoliate My Skin?

You should avoid exfoliation until your skin has completely healed. Make sure not to rub or pick at any flaking skin or scabbing and let it come off naturally. As you clean and care for your skin, be as gentle as you can and listen to your body to make sure you aren’t introducing any skincare steps too soon. You can also contact us for specific recommendations on how to care for your skin.

What Foods Are Best for Skin Health?

Incorporating foods rich in antioxidants, like berries, nuts, and green leafy vegetables, into your diet can support your skin’s health following a microneedling treatment. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish such as salmon and mackerel can also nourish the skin from the inside out and enhance its glow and overall health.
