5 Essential Microneedling Aftercare Tips

Microneedling is a rising trend in the beauty world: this market, which is currently valued at $32 million, is predicted to reach $56million by 2025.

During this skin treatment, a professional uses small stainless-steel needles to gently puncture your skin. This causes new skin tissue to grow and replace damaged skin.

The process can have many benefits, but you're not exactly done once your appointment finishes. As is the case with most beauty procedures, there are some guidelines you should follow post-treatment.

Keep reading and discover five essential (and easy) microneedling aftercare tips!

1. Moisturize

After microneedling, you might notice that your skin feels drier than usual, which is why keeping it hydrated is extra important.

One thing to keep in mind is that, after this procedure, there are ingredients to look for and others to avoid. When you buy a new moisturizer, go for a chemical-free one with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, and stay away from any active ingredients.

2. Go Make-Up Free

During the 24 to 72 hours after your treatment, stay away from any make-up. This way, you give your skin some time to rest and prevent skin irritations that could happen if you used a dirty makeup brush or sponge.

If you're used to wearing makeup to work, simply get your microneedling done on a Friday and go natural for the weekend!

3. Avoid Direct Sunlight

Direct sunlight is a major contributor to premature aging signs. As you can imagine, after you undergo a treatment that will make your skin look healthy and young, it's a bit counterproductive to go sunbathe.

For this reason, it can be a good idea to get this treatment done, as the sun isn't as strong.

Either way, no matter which season it is, make sure you apply your SPF!

4. Avoid Intense Workouts

Doing intense exercises will cause you to sweat and that's a no-no during the week after your microneedling session for one reason only: it'll make it harder for your skin to heal properly.

If you don't want to go that long without moving your body, you can go on walks at sunset, as it likely won't make you sweat.

5. Avoid Other Facial Treatments

Finally, for one month, don't undergo any other facial treatments.

Even if you want to improve other aspects of your skin, it's crucial that it has proper time to recover fully before you schedule your next appointment. Otherwise, in the end, you probably won't see the results you were hoping for!

Microneedling Aftercare for Optimal Results

Although microneedling is minimally invasive and mostly painless, it's still an unusual experience for your skin.

As such, and as we mentioned before, you need to give it time to recover.

Only by following all the proper microneedling aftercare tips can you ensure that the final results will be great. And as you can see, doing so doesn't require that much time or work!

    review rating 5  An honest practitioner who wouldn’t go ahead with an invasive treatment just for the sake of profit, but who assesses the real need for the job to be done based on the psychological distress of the patient. Friendly and professional.

    review rating 5  I had a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure done a year ago and was extremely pleased with the results. It lasted for a great amount of time! Therefore, I can't go without praising the doctor and staff! As they are fantastic at what they do. I was skeptical about the idea of fillers at first but the doctor reassured me as they were very comforting and possessed amazing communication skills. I have anxiety, constantly overthink and was surprised by how the doctor answered all my questions and supported me throughout my whole treatment. The doctor ensured that I felt 100% before starting the treatment. The doctor went through precautions and showed me the dates on the products used. Honestly, Dr Aesthetica deserves so much more recognition because they are genuinely amazing people and are very skilled in what they do. If there is anyone you should trust with your face it's these guys! Thank you so much and I hope to visit you soon for my second treatment! Without these guys, I don't know what I would do. I HAVE NEVER FELT SO CONFIDENT BEFORE! I would totally recommend!
