How much collagen can microneedling produce (mm of possible skin growth)?

Curious about how muck skin can get thick or "pump up" in millimeters with continuous microneedling (MANY sessions). What's the biggest number (in mm) skin can "pump" or "grow"??

Microneedling with PRP-Collagen Induction Therapy

Hello Joanaasdfgh, The results from microneedling varies from patient to patient. It is not possible to estimate how many mm of collagen is induced per miconeedling treatment. With each microneedling treatment you will see improvement in your skin. Schedule a visit with your provider to determine a treatment plan that is best for you. 

Getting the most out of microneedling--Add prp and lasers

This can't be measured by mm. Every case will be unique. However, I always combine microneedling with prp for best results. And usually, microneedling/prp works best in combination with other treatments like lasers. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
