Microneedling and RF microneedling are two of the best treatments for all skin types to treat textural concerns like skin sagging and scarring. It’s just as important to care for your skin after in-office treatments at home to get the best results possible. Check out our top 3 tips on after microneedling care below!
After microneedling care tips
1. Protect your skin from the sun
While all of these tips for post-treatment care are very important, protecting your skin from the sun as it heals is probably most important. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after a resurfacing treatment, so to help your skin heal and avoid damage you should:
- Do not go into direct sunlight without SPF 50 sunscreen or higher for at least 4 weeks after your treatment.
- Wear physical sun protection over your treatment areas; think hats, long sleeves, high necklines, etc.
2. Avoid exfoliating products
The absolute last thing your skin needs during microneedling is exfoliation! Do not use any abrasive physician or chemical exfoliant products, including at-home treatments, serums, and scrubs. Microneedling makes your skin more sensitive and stimulates healing and new collagen from within, and exfoliation can mess with your skin’s healing period.
3. Moisturize and hydrate
You should moisturize and hydrate to help along the healing process for after-microneedling care. Babying your skin throughout the healing process helps it heal quicker and keeps your skin comfortable throughout recovery, our go-to product for this healing time is SkinMedica’s TNS Ceramide Cream.
After your healing process is done, one of our favorite post-procedure products is SkinMedica’s Lytera® 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum. This product helps improve skin discoloration and optimizes results after laser treatments, microneedling, chemical peels, Forever Young BBL, and more! This product works for all skin types and skin tones for many forms of hyperpigmentation/discoloration.
