To alleviate any discomfort, apply a small coating of numbing lotion (such as Lidocaine, which is available over the counter) to the face region 20 minutes before microneedling.
The following are examples of outcomes that may occur based on the concerns and locations that you are targeting with your microneedling treatment:
- Hyperpigmentation is lessened.
- Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced.
- Pores that appeared to have larger have shrunk in size.
- Improvements in the skin's tone and texture
- Skin that is more soft and moisturized
It's critical to follow these measures following the treatment to ensure optimum comfort and skin care benefits:
- Stay out of the sun for at least 24 hours. If you must go outside following the operation, use a big hat and sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by excessive sun exposure.
- Do not wash your face for 8 to 12 hours following the treatment, since this can cause the effects to fade. This includes taking a hot bath, going to the sauna, and inhaling steam.
- Only use the items that your skin care specialist recommends. In the first few days following your microneedling treatment, it's critical to utilize soothing products; any harsh products should be avoided for four days thereafter.
- For one week following treatment, avoid using AHAs, BHAs, glycolic, salicylic, exfoliants (physical or chemical), Vitamin A, and Vitamin C.
- After the treatment, it's common to have pink and potentially puffy skin. It is crucial to keep the skin moist while it heals to avoid excessive peeling; nevertheless, some flaking is typical. Please utilize the items prescribed by your skin care therapist for the first three days (we have included small samples for after care).
- For long-term outcomes, a series of microneedling treatments is suggested. If you buy four or more, we'll offer you a 10% discount.

These are some of the conditions:
Abnormal skin conditions -If you have atypical skin problems (such as cold sores (Herpes Simplex virus), bruised skin, eczema, rosacea, infectious skin diseases, active acne, fungal infections, rashes, or skin cancer), you should take precautions and see your doctor before starting any microneedling treatments.
If you have a skin problem, it doesn't necessarily mean you won't be able to microneedle, but you should see your doctor beforehand to prevent provoking an inflammatory skin reaction that will aggravate any of the aforementioned conditions.
Keloid Scarring - If you've ever experienced keloid scarring (raised scarring), you should see a medical expert before undergoing microneedling.
Because microneedling increases the skin's trauma/healing response, if your skin's natural response is to develop a keloid scar, microneedling may cause an unwanted reaction.
Medications - If you're using drugs like accutane, antibiotics, antidepressants, medications that induce photosensitivity, or medications that cause high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before starting microneedling.
Some drugs will prevent you from microneedling, while others will allow you to do so with caution under your doctor's supervision. Before you begin microneedling, it's critical to double-check this appropriateness.
Cosmetic treatments - You must wait until your skin has fully recovered from cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, laser, cosmetic surgery, filler injections, or cosmetic surgery before beginning microneedling. Before you begin microneedling, see your doctor to ensure that it will not interfere with the outcomes of any of your cosmetic procedures.
Skin imperfections diminish and, in some cases, vanish altogether as the skin heals.
These side effects are all a normal part of the body's recovery. Microneedling causes the skin to go into a trauma/healing reaction (which is what helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin).
Skin cells take 4-6 weeks to complete a full life cycle, and while your skin recovers and new tissues are saturated with collagen and elastin, you'll notice improvements accelerating throughout this period.
Your skin may also be a bit puffy and bruising may occur, particularly in regions of thin tissue (such as the delicate skin around the eyes or decolletage).
Choose items with a high level of ingredient purity. Look for components that are low in irritants and moisturizing (Hyaluronic Acid is amazing) Toners and exfoliants with active ingredients (such as AHAs, BHAs, and retinols) should be avoided.
