Before & After
Important Safety Information & Approved Uses
WHAT TO DO AFTER MICRO NEEDLING PROCEDURE
DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE SUN
After you have undergone your microneedling procedure, stay out of the sun and do not apply any sunscreen, due to the toxins that may be contained in the lotion. Post procedure, the skin channels are completely open, and any toxins contained in topical applicants may be harmful to you.
DO NOT USE ANY “ACTIVE INGREDIENT” SKIN PRODUCTS
Post procedure, avoid any skin care product that has active ingredients. These commonly include things like Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol and other similar agents. The skin will be highly sensitive and these products will only irritate the it further.
USE COLLAGEN STIMULATING PEPTIDES
As microneedling serves to stimulate the production of collagen, the skin needs higher amounts of collagen than normal to recover optimally. Collagen Stimulating Peptides assist in that process, further aiding in the stimulation of collagen production.
AVOID THE USE OF MAKEUP AFTER TREATMENT
It is imperative that you let your skin “breathe” and recover for 24 hours after the procedure. The skin channels are open, and using a makeup brush can penetrate the pores, especially if they are very thin, causing further irritation. Using a makeup brush that has been used before can contaminate the skin and, consequently, lead to infections. Wait 24 to 48 hours before you apply face makeup to give your skin the necessary recovery time.
USE A COOLING FACE MASK
After you have undergone microneedling, you may experience some skin inflammation or redness. Using a cooling mask will help reduce the inflammation or redness of the skin, giving you more comfort.
USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM
Antioxidant serums have properties that assist in healing the skin. Serums assist in soothing the skin and further reduce irritation.
As you sweat the pores of your skin will reopen, and the bacteria on your skin may enter the skin punctures. This can lead to a either a reaction or infection.
It is important to stay hydrated before and after your procedure to help your skin heal and rejuvenate faster.
Frequently Asked Questions
IS MICRONEEDLING EFFECTIVE?
Microneedling has become such a sought after skin treatment because it solves the following problems:
It reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling stimulates the skin to generate collagen and elastin by making small punctures in the skin. The body is tricked into repairing the injuries and in the process, a new layer of skin replaces the old one, peeling away the marks and spots as well as wrinkled skin. There are no chemicals involved. It a mechanical procedure which can reverse the process of skin aging to quite an extent. It prevents new lines and wrinkles from forming. To treat wrinkles, the 1.5mm needles should be used for effective results.
It removes visible acne or pox scars
According to a survey conducted on the effects of microneedling, all the people who tried microneedling saw a significant improvement in the appearance of their facial scars after a few sessions. If you go for home treatment of your scars, you can choose the 1.5mm needles for the dermaroller. Practitioners use upto 3mm long needles to treat deep scars which are present underneath the surface of the skin. The pain experienced and the recovery time are minimal which is why people prefer this method.
As you age, your skin starts producing lesser amount of collagen which gives the skin a dull and wrinkled appearance. Microneedling is effective in correcting damaged skin. The skin is stimulated to produce new skin cells which replace the old ones. As the old layer of skin peels off, fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet get noticeably reduced.
The small punctures vertically induce by the microneedling pen can force the skin to become firm and healthy by producing elastin and collagen. This process of healing is natural which is why the results also last longer. The absorption capacity of the skin improves to help moisturizers or serums work better. You can get tight and glowing skin without going through painful and risky surgical procedures.
Microneedling is effective in shrinking pores, reversing pigmentation or sun damage and improving the skin tone too. It can be done on all parts of the body.
