In most cases, microneedling can be repeated as often as once every four to six weeks. The procedure involves puncturing the skin with microscopic needles, triggering the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This can have side effects like redness, swelling, and minor discomfort that last several days. Essentially, the process causes minor damage to your skin so that your body naturally repairs it and reduces the following issues:
- Acne spots
- Skin discoloration
- Age lines
- Other signs of aging
Since microneedling by definition causes damage to the skin, it’s important to space out sessions long enough that the skin has time to heal properly. When you meet with the team at Glow Aesthetic Center for an initial consultation, we will assess your body type, cosmetic and aesthetic goals, and other factors to create a treatment plan that is right for you. Some patients may require slightly longer intervals between sessions, while others may not need much time at all.

Clients Who Use Microneedling
There are plenty of clients who come to Glow Aesthetic Center for microneedling treatments, and they all come for a variety of reasons. Some suffer from severe acne scars, some need to reduce the size of their pores, and some are looking to erase wrinkles or age lines. Whatever the reason that you seek microneedling services, the team at Glow is ready to help.
Clients in their twenties can benefit from microneedling just as much as clients in their sixties and seventies. In fact, getting treatments at a younger age can help you prevent future wrinkles by ensuring that your skin continues to produce collagen and elastin at high rates. This can reduce the number of sessions you need at an older age to achieve the same results as someone who did not undergo microneedling treatments at a younger age.
Age can also affect other aspects of the microneedling process, according to Yale Medicine. This includes:
- The amount of time between sessions
- The longevity of results
- The number of sessions you need
At Glow Aesthetic Center, we have worked with clients of all ages. We’ll discuss your specific body type and cosmetic goals to formulate a treatment plan that is exactly tailored to your needs.
One of the best aspects of microneedling is the fact that it uses your body’s natural processes. It doesn’t involve the injection of any foreign substances, doesn’t use harsh chemicals on the skin to aid discoloration, and doesn’t require painful and potentially dangerous surgery.
Since it uses your own body, microneedling is effective for all skin types and tones. Your body’s natural collagen and elastin proteins will flood the treated area, providing structure, elasticity, and resilience to your skin. In short, you’ll see firmer, more elastic skin that echoes the look of your youth!
Microneedling and PRP
Glow Aesthetic Center’s team is also proficient in a compatible treatment called PRP, or platelet-rich plasma therapy. This treatment uses your body’s own blood to reduce healing time and boost the health of your skin cells.
When you come in for a PRP and microneedling treatment, you’ll undergo the same microneedling treatment as usual. However, your aesthetician will also draw your blood, separate out the plasma using a sterile centrifuge, and reinject that platelet-rich plasma directly into the area you’re getting treated.
Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood, and it contains several elements that help in the cell regeneration process, including:
The combination of microneedling and PRP (often called a “vampire facial” because it uses the patient’s own blood) can seriously boost your body’s collagen production and cut back on healing time. This can even mean that you don’t have to wait as long between sessions.
