Microneedling treatments can offer you significant results, giving you a younger and healthier appearance in Port Orange, Daytona Beach, and surrounding areas. But, how long does it take to see results from microneedling after your first treatment?
The time to see results varies based on several factors. However, most patients see results in around four to six weeks. Find out more about microneedling treatments in your area by reaching out to us.
Learn About the Timeframe for Microneedling Treatments
Microneedling skincare treatment involves the creation of microscopic punctures in the skin by tiny needles. The “micro-injuries” caused by the process are too small to leave scars. Instead, they simply stimulate your skin to go through a process we call dermal remodeling.
According to Yale Medicine, the process causes initial inflammation, which you may see immediately after your appointment. The inflammation causes your skin to generate collagen, increasing overall collagen levels in your skin and giving you a smoother, more youthful appearance.
After a few days, the inflammation goes down around the site of the microneedling treatment. At this point, many patients feel that their appearance has not changed. However, it takes a few weeks for the results of the process to become noticeable.

How Long Does a Microneedling Treatment Take?
Microneedling (also called collagen induction treatment) appointments generally take around 30 minutes. However, not all sessions take the same amount of time. For example, if you want to treat only a small portion of your body, the appointment may take significantly less time.
Generally, you require no period of recovery after a microneedling appointment. You may notice swelling, but it should go down on its own. In order to get the best results from your therapy session, we do recommend that you spend a few days avoiding:
- Direct sun exposure
- Swimming pools
- Lakes, ponds, or rivers
Make sure you avoid any lotions or creams that irritate the skin after a microneedling treatment. The treated area has many small, microscopic wounds that could react poorly to the ingredients in some lotions.
After a few days, your body will recover from the treatment without needing additional care.
How Many Microneedling Sessions Does It Take to See Results?
You may see results a few weeks after your first microneedling session in Port Orange or Daytona Beach. However, in order to see the best outcomes from your treatment, we recommend that you schedule several appointments.
Most people end up seeing the best results if they attend three to six sessions, depending upon their end goals. Note that you need to space each session out to get the results you want. Generally, you want to wait around four to six weeks between appointments.
Therefore, you can expect to wait around four to six months to see the final results of your microneedling treatments. We will discuss the time frame that works best for your goals and treatments when you reach out to us for assistance.
Timing Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments with Microneedling
You can enhance the effectiveness of microneedling procedures by adding PRP treatments to your care plan. PRP treatments involve using your platelets to stimulate the healing process and give you a more youthful appearance.
Generally, when you combine microneedling and PRP treatments, medical professionals recommend sticking to three PRP treatments. However, you may want to wait about a month between each PRP treatment.
Therefore, it is unlikely that you will receive a PRP treatment at each microneedling appointment. However, your medical team can discuss the best scheduling for your treatment when you come in for a consult.
Changes You Notice After Microneedling Treatments
We have discussed the timeframe to notice results after a microneedling treatment, but you may wonder what changes you should look for following your appointments. Microneedling generally.
- Reduces the size of large pores
- Eases away fine lines and small wrinkles
- Tightens up sagging skin
- Evens out pigmentation and lessens sunspots
- Minimizes acne scars
You do not have to have all of the above conditions in order to set up a microneedling appointment. You can speak with medical professionals about the benefits if you have any dermatological concerns.
Generally, medical professionals recommend microneedling for patients over 20 who are in good health. The treatment works for any skin color, type, or texture. However, you should avoid the treatment while you have an infection or rash around the treatment area. Speak with a medical professional before your appointment for the best results.
