When Will I See Results from Microneedling?
When it comes to rejuvenating your skin, minimizing common signs of aging, and revitalizing your complexion, nothing beats microneedling. Here’s when you can expect to see results from this powerful, all-natural collagen induction treatment.

Who doesn’t want smoother, tighter skin and a more youthful complexion with fewer fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots? Microneedling — also known as collagen induction therapy — can give you all that and more, and only takes a single minimally invasive treatment session with one of our board-certified experts at Florida Dermatology Associates to get beautiful results.

As the most popular anti-aging cosmetic procedure at each of our five office locations across southeastern Florida, microneedling takes years off your appearance in no time flat. Read on as our skin care specialists explain how it works, and when you can expect to see the results you desire. 

Complete skin renewal at every level

Microneedling is a groundbreaking, minimally invasive treatment that renews your skin from the inside out and the outside in, leaving you with healthier epidermal tissues and a fully revitalized complexion.

Using a special pen-like device fitted with a sterile tip of thin needles, microneedling creates a uniform pattern of superficial microchannels through your upper epidermal layers. 

These microscopic skin surface “injuries” stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms, triggering accelerated skin cell turnover, increased elastin production, and vigorous collagen remodeling. This cascade-like skin renewal process leads to stronger, tighter, and healthier skin structures that ripple outward from your deepest dermal layer to the surface of your skin.

Collagen induction: A gradual process

Microneedling is a gentle and systematic skin renewal treatment that takes less than an hour to complete. Within a day or two of your session, you can expect to see significantly improved skin tone, smoother, more refined skin texture, and a healthier, luminous complexion marked by fewer signs of aging. 

But these early results are just the beginning. Collagen and elastin renewal is a gradual, ongoing process that builds on itself and improves over time. As this foundational skin revitalization action unfolds in the days and weeks following your treatment, you can expect your skin to continue looking better, brighter, and more youthful. 

Most people see optimal, dramatic skin rejuvenation results about four to six weeks after their microneedling session.

The skin-transforming boost of fresh collagen and elastin that microneedling delivers goes way beyond a one-time, immediate enhancement in production — higher collagen and elastin levels in your epidermal tissues prompts your skin to continue producing more collagen and elastin on its own, naturally.

Microchannels deliver major benefits

The magic of microneedling and its skin-boosting microchannels have the potential to go a step beyond collagen induction. By creating an ideal opportunity to deliver skin-nourishing serums directly to your underlying epidural tissues through these tiny openings, microneedling can help you address your unique complexion needs and achieve maximal facial rejuvenation results.

By combining a few tiny microchannels with the correct skin renewing serum and a few weeks of collagen-inducing time, you can improve the appearance of:

  • Hyperpigmentation (sun damage)
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases
  • Poor laxity (loose, saggy skin)
  • Puffy or dark under-eye bags
  • Rough, uneven skin texture
  • Scars (including acne scars)
  • Noticeably large skin pores

Whether you’re interested in minimizing lines and wrinkles, tightening saggy skin, or restoring a radiant, more youthful complexion, microneedling can leave your skin looking immeasurably brighter, tighter, smoother, and more uniform.
