What To Expect

  • Expect mild to moderate redness the day of and the day after the treatment. Redness should resolve within 24/48 hours.
  • You may have pinpoint bleeding/weeping that should stop shortly after treatment. Mild sensitivity, tightness, heat sensation, itching, and irritation is normal and should resolve within 24-48 hours.
  • Avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours. Do not tan or expose yourself to prolonged sunlight for at least two weeks. ALWAYS use sunblock (30 SPF or higher). We recommend EltaMD Clear every morning for at least 2 weeks after your appointment.

Your Microneedling Post-Care Guide

  • Keep the treated area clean by washing with freshly washed hands and mild cleanser, such as EltaMd Foaming Cleanser or SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser, twice a day.
  • Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap.
  • Do not use acne cleansers, astringents or anti-aging products.
  • Dry the area completely after washing by gently blotting with a clean tissue.
  • Only wear mineral makeup.
  • Sleep on your back with your head elevated to minimize pain and swelling.
  • Avoid recreational water activities such as saunas, hot steam showers, and swimming.
  • Avoid vigorous activities that will make you sweat.
  • Flaking may occur and is natural. Do NOT pick, scratch, or scrub your skin. Allow it to flake off naturally.
  • Avoid hot steam showers as they can cause dehydrated skin and inflammation/cellular breakdown.
  • Once your skin is no longer red, you may resume your regular skincare routine.
  • You may use a supportive ceramide moisturizer such as SkinBetter Trio or NeoCutis Bio Cream.
  • After the 7 days healing period, always use a sunblock to protect from sun damage. We recommend EltaMD Clear.
  • In order to best support your healing and increase results, we recommend using a growth factor and peptide boosting treatment such as NeoCutis Bio Serum daily.
