Microneedling is currently one of the most popular ways to keep your skin tight and beautiful. It is clean, safe, and very effective, but just like with any other skin rejuvenating and tightening procedure, it is crucial to follow certain aftercare instructions, so your skin stays healthy, and you get the most out of your Microneedling treatment.
This is why you should be well-prepared and know what to expect after Microneedling treatment even before you make an appointment. Knowing what to apply to your skin after Microneedling can make all the difference in the long run. Since during the process, micro wounds are being created in the skin, you should not immediately return to your regular skincare routines, but instead be thorough and careful when it comes to the cleaning, healing, and hydrating processes. You should also find the best cream to use after micro needling, one that works well with your skin type.
In most cases, immediately after the treatment, your skin will look and feel as if you spent hours in the sun and have a moderate sunburn. It will also feel tighter than usual, which is normal and these symptoms should subside within a couple of hours after your Microneedling treatment. In rare cases, however, they can last for up to 48 hours.
It’s best to ask a skin professional what to apply to the skin after Microneedling. Here some of the most common post-care skin treatments to help soothe, calm, and protect your skin after Microneedling.
Crucial Microneedling Post-Care Steps:
Use a very gentle cleanser and tepid water to rinse the face over the next 72 hours. Gently dry the treated area after rinsing and make sure your hands are as clean as possible. It is recommended that you do not use powered cleansing brushes for at least seven days after Microneedling.
The treated area of your skin may appear much drier than normal after the treatment, which is why it is recommended to use hyaluronic acid as it is excellent for hydrating and restoring your skin’s balance.
We at Transforming Image suggest you use an antioxidant serum, these possess properties that are extremely effective when it comes to soothing the skin and reducing irritation, thus helping it heal faster.
STIMULATE AND REGENERATE
To get the most out of your Microneedling treatment, the use of collagen-stimulating peptides is recommended as this helps the regeneration process and can maximize the stimulation that has already been triggered by Microneedling.
It’s very important to apply chemical-free sunscreen to your skin right after the treatment and keep using it for at least a week.
IMPORTANT NOTE: NO MAKEUP
Avoid applying makeup for up to 72 hours after the procedure.
Additional Microneedling Aftercare Tips:
- Do not use any “active” skin care products during the following week.
- Avoid using any kind of powered cleansing brushes during the following week.
- Avoid sunbathing for up to 72 hours post-treatment.
- Tanning beds as well.
- No swimming for up to 72 hours.
- Make sure you do not work out for the first 72 hours after the treatment as sweating can lead to adverse reactions in the treated areas of your skin.
