Knowing what to expect from micro needling treatment isn’t just about understanding what the procedure involves. It is also important to have realistic expectations about what the treatment can achieve and when you should be able to see the effects.
What Effects Will You See?
The kind of effects that you’ll see after your micro needling treatment will depend on where you were treated and what you were hoping to achieve. For example, if you were having microneedling to combat hair loss, you should see some new hair growth in the treated area. However, if your treatment was intended to combat wrinkles, acne scars, or stretch marks, the changes you see will be in the texture and condition of your skin. Your skin should begin to feel smoother, healthier and more supple. Problems such as wrinkles, scars and stretch marks should also become less visible. Unless the treatment was intended to promote hair growth, you wont’ see any increase in hair on the treated area, so micro needling can be used anywhere. Micro needling treatment can achieve very different results in different parts of the body. You will have a chance to discuss the expected results during your consultation at the clinic.
When Will You See Results
The expected timescale will also be discussed before you being micro needling treatment. You should be told how many treatment sessions you will need, and how long it will take to complete them all. You will also be given some idea of when the first effects should start to become visible. Most people should begin to notice a change after about two to three months of microneedling. The effects will usually appear sooner when you are having treatment for a skin problem than when you are being treated for hair loss. However, hair loss treatments using microneedling should begin to produce some hair growth in about three months.
