Micro-Needling 
Post Care

Post Treatment Expectations

Day 1-3: 

Your skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to touch.  A sunburn-like effect is normal.  Treat the skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser, cool water and then only pat drying your skin.  Please avoid this for at least 4 hours after your treatment.  

Your skin may appear red and in some cases patients  may experience slight bruising that can last for 5-7 days and some temporary swelling for 2-4 days. 

 

Day 3-7: 

Your skin may start to peel after 3-5 days following the treatment.  You’ll notice skin dryness and flaking which is due to an increased turnover of skin cells.  Please do not pick, scratch or scrub at treated skin.

 

Around Day 5-7:

You may be able to start your regular skin care products again, once your skin no longer feels sore or irritated.  Most of our Patients have noticed continued skin improvement over the months following their last treatment.
