How long do the effects of Micro Needling Last? How often is maintenance required?

I am considering getting a micro needling procedure done, but the nurse said the procedure requires a maintenance needling every few months. Why every few months? I plan to do the needling for collagen production around the eye area and usually when getting lasers done for collagen production the treatments are required years apart, not months apart.

Lasting effects from micro-needling

To get the best results from micro-needling I recommend an initial series of four monthly treatments. During each treatment, my staff uses a concentrated human growth factor serum derived from human stem cells to further enhance the results. We also have our patients apply a growth factor serum at home to not only maintain the results but to give continued improvement as well. In my office, we use the Rejuva Skin Care system which combines motorized micro-needling using the RejuvaStamp micro-needling machine with RejuvaCells growth factor serum made from human stem cells and we have been getting excellent results for under eye wrinkles.
By the way, a recent study showed that micro-needling the skin can give as good or better results than laser or Fraxel treatments!
