For the most part, the effects of the first round of microneedling therapy treatments last from four to six weeks. That said, the number of treatments and exact time frame will vary based on your conditions, age, skin type, and how your skin reacts to the therapy.
However long your individual results last, the effects of microneedling are not permanent, so you’ll have to continue receiving medical therapy in order to maintain those effects.
