Microneedling Aftercare: Get The Most From the Treatment

Microneedling is a safe and virtually pain-free treatment to improve overall skin quality and texture by thickening the epidermis. The dermaroller procedure involves the use of tiny needles that make micro-channels in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin formation. There are so many benefits of having this treatment you’ll want to book it now, but just take a moment to read about skincare after microneedling…

Possible After Microneedling Effects on Your Skin

  • Small puncture marks may be visible on the skin

  • Skin may feel warmer, rougher, and tighter than normal
  • Skin may be sensitive to the touch
  • Stinging and itching sensations may be experienced
  • Any redness and swelling, or bruising should subside within 48 hours

Caring for Your Skin After Microneedling Procedure

Once you’ve had the treatment you must follow the guidelines given to you by your cosmetic doctor. These include:

  • Cleansing: use a gentle cleanser and warm water for 72 hours afterward, patting the skin dry with hands that are hygienically clean
  • Healing: antioxidant serums have properties that soothe the skin and lessen irritation when applied
  • Moisturising: use products containing hyaluronic acid to hydrate and restore balance to the skin, and cooling face masks will give comfort
  • Stimulating: maximise the effects of the microneedling by using collagen-stimulating peptides
  • Protecting: a sunscreen will be applied to your skin after treatment and you should continue to use a chemical-free option every day to protect your skin
  • Avoiding: don’t use makeup for at least 24 hours after treatment, don’t use skin care products containing active ingredients, and don’t undertake any activities that make you perspire as this may cause a bacterial infection
  • Drinking: stay hydrated both before and after your treatment to help your skin heal faster

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
