Microneedling Treatment Instructions

Before Treatment

  • Avoid aspirin and blood thinning medications or supplements for one week before treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure and retinoids for 24 hours before your treatment.
  • To minimize discomfort during your procedure, we recommend you apply topical numbing cream one hour before your treatment.
  • Please arrive at your appointment with a clean, makeup-free face.

After Treatment

  • Avoid sun exposure for 24 hours post-procedure. After 24 hours, wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day and reapply as needed.
  • Avoid swimming, strenuous activity and exercising for the first 24 hours post-procedure.
  • During the first 1-3 days, your skin may appear red like a sunburn, and may feel warm and tight.
  • For the first 3-5 days, use the post-care kit provided or gentle skin care products such as Cetaphil or Cerave cleansers and lotions. After 3-5 days, you may resume your normal skincare routine.
