Is it safe to have micropen procedure every 3 weeks ?

My esthetician recommended that I have micropen treatments 3 weeks apart. Is that safe ?

Micropen Treatments -- Space 4 to 6 Weeks Apart

Spacing Micropen treatments 3 weeks apart is fine. However, I would recommend at least 4 to 6 weeks, as the skin needs to heal between sessions. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Microneedling Every 3 Weeks

Thanks for your question!  You can safely perform microneedling every 3 weeks, but I recommend 4-6 weeks in between treatments.  This allows for a full cellular response from the previous treatment.  Best of luck!

Microneedling interval

A 3 week interval would definitely be safe if performed correctly, but it may not be the best interval to allow full cellular response before the next treatment. In our practice we generally wait at least 4 weeks depending on what we are treating, sometimes longer. 
Best to you,

Microneedling 4-6 weeks between treatments

Hello new83,Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4-6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage. Hope this helps!
