Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?


Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?

Are you in search of a radiant, glowing complexion – the kind that will make you look like you just walked off the cover of a magazine?

If that’s the case, it’s time to discover the rejuvenating powers of microneedling treatments. This innovative solution uses microscopic needles to penetrate the dermal tissue and trigger an excess production of collagen and elastin. 

As a result, skin looks tighter, toner, and a lot younger.

But given that the treatment uses tiny needles to achieve its results, it leaves many clients wondering: “Is there any downtime with microneedling?”

Downtime from Microneedling Treatments

Microneedling is a non-surgical solution, so you won’t need to take time off for recovery. 

However, it’s worth noting that microneedling can create mild facial swelling, redness, and tenderness. That’s why we typically recommend clients schedule their microneedling treatments on the weekend, so they’ll be ready to face the world on Monday morning.

How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?

The number of microneedling treatments you may need will largely depend on the complexion issues you’re looking to address. 

In general, we recommend clients sign up for a minimum of three microneedling treatments. Some clients need as many as six microneedling sessions to see their ideal results.
