How Often Should I Get Microneedling Treatments?

Your skin can show signs of aging as it loses collagen over time. Microneedling restores lost collagen for firmer, more youthful skin. It also brings healthy new cells to the surface for total skin rejuvenation. Microneedling can treat a wide range of skin concerns in one session, leaving you with smooth, clear skin. 

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a handheld device that creates tiny microchannels in the skin at a precisely controlled depth. These micro-injuries trigger the surrounding cells to start the healing process. Cells deeper in the skin respond by making more collagen. This new collagen adds to the skin’s natural support structure, firming and smoothing it. The healing process also brings new, vibrant skin cells to the surface, leading to skin that looks fresh and clear. 

How Does Microneedling With Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Work?

Not all microneedling devices are created equal. Willow Aesthetics proudly offers the Eclipse MicroPen® EVO. This advanced microneedling tool is available only through medical professionals, and it provides superior results in skin rejuvenation and collagen production. Its specially designed tip works so fast that many people report the treatment feels no more uncomfortable than sandpaper being moved across the skin.

How Often Should I Get Microneedling Treatments?

One advantage of microneedling is that results continue to improve after each treatment. We usually recommend three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Your Willow Aesthetics provider will customize your treatment plan. How often you have maintenance treatments depends on your body’s response. Many people can maintain their results with one treatment once a year. 

What Can Microneedling With Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Treat?

Microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO is a versatile treatment that provides numerous benefits in one treatment. Few other treatments offer so many benefits with so little recovery time. Microneedling can treat skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven skin texture

Microneedling combines skin rejuvenation with collagen generation to achieve more results in one session. As an added bonus, many people treated with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO enjoy a post-treatment glow. Microneedling results take several weeks to appear, and they will develop fully within about three months. How long they last depend on your skin’s collagen production, how well you maintain your skincare routine, and natural variations between people.

Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?

Your skin may look red and flushed after your microneedling treatment. This redness usually lasts two to four days. Your skin will be sensitive to harsh products during this time, so use a gentle cleanser and avoid potentially irritating agents. You can return to your usual activities immediately after microneedling. To protect your developing collagen from the sun, avoid excess exposure and use sunscreen. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Most people make good candidates for microneedling. Unlike many lasers, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. It harnesses your skin’s natural healing abilities to power natural-looking results. Good candidates for microneedling want to improve their skin significantly with minimal downtime. Eclipse MicroPen® EVO makes microneedling even safer and more effective than standard microneedling devices.
