Microneedling Aftercare

The redness that you experience from micro-needling will mostly fade within 48 hours. Other symptoms, such as peeling and breakouts, might take slightly longer to resolve. Most of the visible recovery from micro- needling happens in the first day or two after treatment, but healing will still be happening under the surface of your skin for up to 2 months.

• As a general rule, you should reach for sunscreen constantly for the first 2 weeks after micro-needling. Make sure to apply sunscreen anytime you go outside in the days following your treatment.

• Don’t spend prolonged time out in the sun for the first week after your micro-needling procedure, as you’ll be more prone to sun damage than usual.

• Use any topical antibiotic cream that your doctor prescribes to avoid infection.

• Wash your hands before you touch your face.

• Don’t put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 24 hours following micro-needling.

• You’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin. After 72 hours have passed, you may be able to resume these activities.
