What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny needles which causes your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. (Web MD, 2020)

Tips for Pre-Treatment

* Avoid Accutane in the 6-months prior to beginning your treatment

* Do not use topical agents that may increase the sensitivity of your skin such as exfoliants or topical antibiotics 5-7 days prior to your treatment

* Avoid intense pulsed light treatment (IPL), unprotected sun exposure, and sunburn for at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure

* Do not shave the day of the procedure to avoid irritation

* No waxing, depilatory creams, or electrolysis to the area being treated for the 5-7 days prior

* Avoid blood thinning agents for at least 1 week prior because bruising is a common side effect for micro needling

Tips for Day of Treatment

* Keep your skin free of lotion, oil, makeup, powders, and sunscreens.

* Your specialist will ask if there are any cosmetic tattoos in the treatment area

* 30-45 minutes prior to your treatment, topical lidocaine will be applied to your skin

Tips for Post-Treatment

* Do not take any anti-inflammatory medications for 1 week after the procedure

* Do not use ice on your face as this may interfere with the natural inflammatory process that’s critical for your skin’s rejuvenation

* Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 1 week. After 24 hours, always use sun block.

* Use a pain killer, such as Tylenol, if you experience any soreness
