Microneedling Post-Care Instructions

Initial Effects (24-72 Hours Post-Treatment):

  • Your skin may resemble a mild windburn with possible tingling, itching, redness, dryness, tightness, or small pinpoint scabs.
  • Use cold compresses gently if needed to alleviate irritation.

Avoid the Following:

  1. Chemical Exfoliants or Scrubs: No use for 5-7 days, including acne medications like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
  2. Sun Exposure: Your skin will be sensitive. Use SPF 30 or higher, reapplying every 2 hours. Wear a hat for additional protection.
  3. Makeup: Avoid for as long as possible to allow the skin to heal.
  4. Vitamin C Products: Steer clear of Vitamin C cleansers or serums.
  5. Heavy Skin Products: Avoid occlusive products like night creams or face oils.
  6. Excessive Heat: No intense exercise, saunas, steam rooms, or hot tubs for 24-72 hours to prevent increased inflammation.
  7. Physical Irritation: Don’t pick at scabs or flaky skin. Avoid rough fabrics; gently pat the skin dry after cleansing.
  8. Hair Removal: No waxing or depilatories for 5-7 days.

Skin Care:

  • Moisturizing: Apply moisturizer or hyaluronic acid serums at least twice daily (morning and evening) for hydration and to reduce dryness and flaking.
  • Gentle Cleansing: Use mild products and soft materials for drying.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water and use hydrating skincare products like hyaluronic acid serums, nourishing toners, and moisturizers.
