MICRONEEDLING

Updated: May 12

After the treatment, take precautions against sun exposure. Do not apply sunscreen for 12 hours after the microneedling treatment due to the skin’s channels being open for a period of time and due to the toxic nature of some sunscreens on the market.


  • Do not perform any vigorous exercise for at least 12 hours after treatment.

  • Do not apply make-up for at least 12 hours after the treatment. We recommend for use post procedure versus other foundations.

  • Micro needling may trigger a cold sore response in patients and a prophylaxis medication should be recommended to those who are prone to breakouts.

  • Wash the face thoroughly a few hours after treatment. Gently massage the face with tepid water, and remove all serum and other debris such as dried blood.

  • For the first 1-3 days the skin will be very dry and feel tight.

  • After 2-3 days patients can return to regular skin care products or as soon as it is comfortable to do so.

  • Avoid alcohol based toners 10-14 days.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 10 days if possible.

TREATMENT RECOVERY TIMELINE

  • Day 1: Erythema and red appearance and severity will depend upon how aggressive the treatment was performed.

  • Day 2: A red hue or pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day.
