Microneedling for Age and sun spots
microneedling in combination with kojic acid or hydroquinone will be effective
in reducing the age spots. However I would recommend additional
treatments with a light-based device as well. Depending on your skin
color and the provider, I would recommend IPL, Erbium YAG or other similar
treatment options. You will likely need 1-2 light-based treatments with a
few microneedling treatments.

Microneedling For sun damage and reverse the signs of aging
Hello and thank you for your question. Absolutely microneedling / Collagen Induction Therapy would be an excellent treatment that addresses many issues for aging skin. I would recommend starting on a medical grade skin care line such as ZO Medical, and then a series of microneedling with PRP treatments. Hope this helps!
Microneedling for sun damage?
- Being in Florida, it's not surprising you have sun damage.
- An exam is needed to be sure but your photo suggests that if you start with Obagi or other tretinoin/Retin A skin skin care for 3 months for sun damage and discoloration and then have microneedling 3 - 6 times, spaced 6 weeks apart, with skin care in the intervals with Vitamin C daily, tretinoin once a week you could get a dramatic improvement.
- But for skin especially, nothing replaced the face-to-face examination.
- See a plastic surgeon please for a full evaluation.
