Microneedling the dermis encourages the production of new collagen and elastin, which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Serums that are applied to the skin afterwards are also up to 1000 times more effective as the pores are opened and the product is absorbed deep into the skin.3~to 6 treatments spaced out 2 to 6 weeks each.
Avoid Skincare Products that have active ingredients
Do not use any skincare products that have active ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid or Retinol (Vitamin A) for at least 72 hours post-treatment, as these can irritate your skin even more. Use only products that your dermatologists or aesthetician has recommended.
You can return to regular skin care products after 3 days.
Stay out of the sun
After the microneedling procedure, you should avoid sun exposure at least for three days. Also, you should not apply any chemical sunscreen immediately after the treatment.
Avoid any makeup application
Do not put on makeup for 24 to 72 hours after your microneedling treatment so that your skin can breathe as well as recover.
Use a cooling face mask
You may experience some redness or skin inflammation after the treatment. Using a cooling and hydrating face mask will help you reduce the redness and inflammation.
Try Not To Sweat
Avoid strenuous exercises for at least 72 hours because if you sweat, your pores will reopen, & the bacteria on your skin will enter the skin punctures, which can lead to infection or an adverse skin reaction. You should also avoid steam rooms, saunas or hot baths until redness is gone.
You should drink plenty of water to help your skin heal & rejuvenate faster. Also, you should try to avoid alcohol or caffeine.
Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face
Do not wash your skin at all during the first 3 days. After that, you should use a gentle cleanser as well as lukewarm water to wash your face.
Use broad spectrum sunscreen once your skin has healed
To prevent sun damage as well as pigmentation, you must use a broad-spectrum sunscreen after your skin has healed.
