Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment, also known in the cosmetic industry as collagen induction therapy. It's used to treat stretch marks, acne scarring, hair restoration, and fine lines and wrinkles. ... Left behind is improved texture and firmness, and a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
The frequency of your treatments will depend on the length of your derma roller's needles and your skin's sensitivity. If your needles are shorter, you may be able to roll every other day, and if the needles are much longer, you may need to space out treatments every three to four weeks.
IPL therapy is a more selective treatment compared to microneedling. It also brings faster results that last longer when compared to microneedling. However, it's not as effective in smoothing skin texture or promoting collagen production. If wrinkle reduction is your top priority, microneedling is better than IPL.
