Formulate Answers Common Microneedling Questions
In the article “How Often Should You Do Microneedling? + Other Microneedling Questions, Answered.”, Formulate answers the most common microneedling questions with the help of Dr. Green. Microneedling is the procedure of creating small and controlled injuries to the skin to boost the healing response. By doing this, it stimulates the collagen production and improves the appearance of the skin.
In terms of how often you should do a microneedling treatment, Dr. Green states “the frequency and the total number of microneedling treatments vary per individual depending on skin type, treatment method (PRP, RF, at-home, in-office), age, and desired results”. Those in their 20s are likely to need fewer sessions as their skin heals faster.
