Microneedling has minimal recovery time, because it is not surgery. Most people can go to dinner that evening with camouflaging makeup. There may be minor skin redness for 1-3 days after the procedure. This is a natural response to the small needles to stimulate collagen. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen SPF 30 should be applied for at least one week, even if it is not sunny outside. Avoid harsh chemicals to the skin for 1 week. After the microneedling session, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. You should see results within a couple of weeks. To maintain the results of your treatment, you will likely need multiple sessions, depending on your goals.
