1How long do you have to wait between microneedling sessions?
4 to 6 weeks
2Can I do microneedling every 2 weeks?
Micro-needling can be repeated every 2-4 weeks until you achieve the desired results. We recommend starting with three treatments for collagen induction, but with a minimum separation time of 2 weeks between treatments. An average of six treatments is recommended for scar reduction.
The number of treatments will vary based on how each individual responds to the drugs and the severity of the injury.
3Are 2 microneedling sessions enough?
Three treatments are a good starting point for collagen induction. How your skin reacts to microneedling will determine how you respond to microneedling. Microneedling is a very safe and quick treatment for the majority of skin types and concerns. Many people see results after just one or two sessions, which is the best of all.

4How many sessions of microneedling is needed?
You should get the full benefit of the therapy from at least four to six sessions. The skin has enough time to make real progress in terms of resurfacing and producing enough collagen and elastin to produce long-lasting results. For more difficult to handle conditions such as deep scarring, you may need up to eight sessions.
5Can you do microneedling 3 weeks apart?
Every 3 weeks Microneedling can be done safely, but I would recommend 4-6 weeks in between treatments. This results in a complete cell response from the previous therapy.
6Can you do microneedling once a week?
When it comes to assisting wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks, microneedling should be done no more than once a fortnight. The skin does not have time to heal properly, and it is more prevalent than this. When it comes to hair loss, research shows that micro needling sessions should be held every week. Microneedling should never be performed daily.
If using a 0.5mm derma roller, it is recommended that you have 6 sessions rather than 12 weeks. Then take a break to allow the new collagen layer to fully develop. The 6 sessions can be repeated 3 – 6 months later.
If using a 1.5mm dermaroller or longer, it is often better to space treatments 4 – 6 weeks apart to allow for longer recovery times. 1.5mm derma rollers are more effective in a medical setting than for home use.
When it comes to hair loss, it’s usually better to use a 1.0mm dermastamp instead of a dermaroller.
7Can you overdo microneedling?
The best time to do microneedling is before bed, so that actives can penetrate while you sleep. However, the key thing isn’t to overdo it; more isn’t always best, as you will continue to produce inflammation. Stick to no more than twice a week.
8What happens if you microneedle too often?
Microneedling is Too Often Failure to do so will delay healing, inflammation, inflammation, and slow results, which we don’t want to do to our skin. Collagen is already present in the skin up to a month after microneedling, so be patient.
If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.
Needless are not rolled into skin and are rolled onto skin instead, so the micro-hole it creates tend to be wider shaped cones, which is why giving two weeks between each session is preferable.
9Does microneedling make you age faster?
If you’re in a hurry, the answer is: no. Dermarolling is dangerous and has no skin benefit. If you have time to read more, let’s see how derma rolling breaks down collagen, promotes scar tissue formation, accelerates the aging process, and puts you at risk of cancer.
10How do you know if microneedling is working?
Following therapy, the majority of patients see full results between four and six weeks. Your body needs time to produce collagen and elastin, as well as sending it to your micro wounds. At this point, you’ll notice your skin is both younger and healthier.
At this point, you’ll notice your skin is both younger and healthier.
11Is 8 weeks too long between microneedling?
W/PRP: Microneedling w/P.S.A. Initially, it is suggested that you do a series of 3-6 treatments 4-6 weeks apart, then space them out to 8-12 weeks to maintain and keep the skin rejuvenated.
12How long do microneedling results last?
about three to five months.
The results’ longevity is dependent on two aspects: how long new collagen stays in your skin and the severity of your skin problems. People who need to produce a lot of collagen to address severe skin problems will likely have initial results that last for a few months, while those with mild skin problems may have longer results.
The consistency and durability of collagen produced with this therapy are dependent on several aspects, including your age, your stress, and your skin care.

Following surgery, one week after treatment: The majority of our patients will notice changes in their skin just one week after treatment. The first findings usually include improved skin tone, a decrease in acne appearance, and improved skin texture.
15Is microneedling better than Botox?
Both these treatments, as stand-alone therapies, are in their own ways. Botox will produce good visual results on the skin, as the area will appear and feel smoother, but microneedling wins, hands down.
It’s also important to note that Botox will give faster results (within 2 weeks) than microneedling, as a series of 3-6 skin needling sessions, each 4-6 weeks apart, is usually recommended for optimal results. Following a thorough consultation, your doctor should be able to recommend the right treatment(s) for you based on your desired outcomes.
Should I have microneedling before Botox? Or Botox before microneedling? Or does it not matter?
i.e. If you choose to go down the treatment combination route. Botox and microneedling – I recommend that my patients wait two weeks between appointments. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, Botox must be administered to healthy, intact skin, and microneedling creates numerous microscopic channels, so it would not be possible to perform both treatments in the same session.
