What You Need to Know to Get 
Healthy Rejuvenated Skin

Microneedling is a clean and safe way to rejuvenate your skin and improve the look of imperfections and scarring. This non-ablative treatment uses tiny micro stainless-steel needles to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. As a result, new skin tissue replaces old damaged skin which reduces the appearance of many common skin concerns.

Micro-needling with serums including growth factors, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid available to help you get flawless and healthy-looking skin.

While medical microneedling doesn’t have a lengthy downtime compared to other skin treatments, it still requires careful aftercare to keep your skin healthy.

To get the most out of your treatment, follow the tips and instructions below.

The Benefits of Microneedling

Before thinking about the aftercare, you may want to know more about what microneedling can do for you. 

  • Improved fine lines and wrinkles

  • Reduced appearance of scars (including acne scars)

  • Softened stretch marks

  • Lightened hyperpigmentation such as sun and age spots

  • Reduced pores

  • Smoother and firmer skin

  • Evened out skin tone; and

  • A youthful glow.

What to Expect During a Microneedling Procedure?

A regular microneedling procedure usually takes about 60-75 minutes. About 30 minutes before the procedure, we will apply a topical anesthetic cream to endure you stay comfortable throughout the treatment.

The microneedling process itself takes approximately 30-45 minutes, though the time will vary depending on the area being treated. 

After the procedure, we will apply a serum or calming treatment to help your skin heal. To recover from the treatment, your skin will produce collagen and elastin (that would have otherwise not been created) that will result in a healthier, younger and fresher appearance.

We can not Microneedling if you have the following Contraindications 

  • Pregnant or Nursing

  • Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis 

  • Autoimmune disease including Lupus

  • Active Acne

  • Herpes Simplex (cold sores outbreak)

  • Heart or vascular disease

  • Blood disorder or on a blood thinner 

  • Keloid Scars (raised scars)

  • Cancer & recently had radiation treatments 

  • Have used Accutane in the last 12 months or other acne topical creams that will make skin sensitive.

Schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for Microneedling or another service that will be beneficial to get healthy radiant skin.

Caffeine, alcohol, smoking and advil should be avoided the day of your appointment. Caffeine, alcohol and Advil thin the blood and cause excess bleeding during the treatment process, which can affect the healing for Microneedling.

Post-Treatment and Side Effects: How to Care for Your Regenerating Skin

Immediately after treatment, your skin will feel warm and tight. It will also be pink or mildly red as if you were out in the sun for a while. The redness and warm feeling should subside after a few hours. But for some patients, it can take a day or two for these side effects to go away completely. For others, it may take up to a week before the redness has completely subsided. If this happens, you may use a cooling face mask to reduce the redness, heat, and inflammation.

Since microneedling creates minuscule “wounds” in your skin, you cannot continue with your regular skin care routine immediately after treatment. Instead, you will have to follow specific post microneedling aftercare instructions which we will provide you at the end of your treatment.

1: Cleansing Your Skin

For the first 72 hours following your microneedling treatment, only clean your face with lukewarm water (not hot or cold) and a gentle cleanser Gently Clean. Always make sure to clean your hands before washing your face and touching the treated skin.

Gently dry your skin with a clean towel (lightly dab the water away) and do not use any powered cleansing brushes for at least a week after your treatment.

2: The Importance of Hydration and Specialized Serums

Since your skin will feel drier than usual, you can hydrate and restore your skin’s balance with a serum containing hyaluronic acid as well.

Using moisturizers with ceramides and spritzing hydrating water sprays whenever your skin feels dry can also help soothe your skin.

Remember, of course, to drink plenty of water to hydrate and to help heal your skin faster.

3: Making the Most of Your Skin’s Regeneration

Since microneedling stimulates collagen growth, you can make the most of this regeneration process with collagen-stimulating peptides. These can maximize the collagen stimulation that is occurring from the microneedling treatment.

4: Avoiding Irritants and Makeup

Do not wear makeup for 24 to 72 hours following your microneedling treatment so you can allow your skin to breathe and recover. Also, do not use a makeup brush at this time—especially a dirty one.

When it is safe to use a makeup brush again, make sure only to use clean ones as contaminated brushes can cause skin irritation and infections.

Your skin is sensitive and healing during this rejuvenation process, so avoid using any products that could irritate it or clog your pores.

5: Protecting your Skin from The Sun

Immediately after your treatment, you should only use chemical-free topical lotions. It is best, therefore, to avoid the sun altogether. If you must go out in the sun, you will need to apply a use a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 25 or higher sunscreen. A sunhat could also be used if you are going to be outside for a few short moments.

These measures should not only for after your treatment but should also as part of your regular day-to-day skin care routine, to protect your skin from premature aging.

6: No Need for Exfoliation

While your skin is healing, do not use any abrasive products like exfoliators and alcohol-based toners. While it may be tempting to exfoliate your skin, you must remember that it is healing and regenerating. You should only apply products that help soothe and heal the skin during this time.

What to Avoid After A Microneedling Treatment

Along with changing your skin care routine after a microneedling treatment, you must also avoid the following:

72 hours after treatment

  • Direct sunlight;

  • Swimming;

  • Sweating, exercise, and vigorous activities that cause sweating; and,

  • Tanning beds.

One week after treatment

  • Powered cleansing brushes;

  • Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids;

  • Retinol (Vitamin A);

  • Vitamin C (low-pH formula) scrubs; and,

  • Anything perceived as “active” skincare.

Even on regular days, it’s important to treat your skin gently with products that are effective but not damaging to your skin. When you are healing, however, you must show additional care and be extra to get optimal results from your treatment.

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can effectively treat your skin concerns. It remains of course that like all skin treatments it requires proper aftercare.
