Can One Micro-Needling treatment show results or are are multiple treatments usually required?

I am considering professional microneedling around the eyes area. The esthetician mentioned it may take more than one treatment or "upkeep" treatments. Does this mean little or no results usually show up from one treatment? Does this mean the results are short lived?

Number of micro-needling treatments to see results

For wrinkles around the eyes, we have been getting excellent results after just one treatment. However, to get the best results from micro-needling we 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.
