To achieve flawless skin, follow our effective microneedling aftercare instructions (Pre-& Post) to the latter. Let’s begin with pre-treatment care and how to prep the skin for a microneedling session:


Preparing The Skin

  • Avoid sun exposure or tanning bed at least 4 weeks prior to treatment and during treatment process.
  • Do not exercise the day before or for 48 hours after the injection treatment.
  • Avoid caffeine-containing food or beverages on the day of treatment.
  • Avoid medications such as Aleve, Advil, cold remedies, Vitamin E, or aspirin 5 days prior to treatment.
  • Avoid Retin-A, chemical peels, injectable fillers, or Botox 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Use a sunblock with an SPF 30+ with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum protection.
  • Day of treatment wear comfortable clothing. Your top should button or zip rather than pull over the head.
  • Notify the esthetician if you get cold sores. You will require an anti-viral prescription to avoid any breakout after treatments.
  • If you have open cuts, wounds, abrasions, or during acne or cold sores breakouts, we cannot perform the procedure.
  • Eat a healthy diet, whole food vitamins, and daily omega-3 fish oil. It is also advisable to take 1000mg of Vitamin C and 2000 IU of Vitamin D3. This ensures an increase in vitamins internally and externally. Thus, aiding greatly with the healing process.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water/non-caloric fluids per day.



  • Day 1: Skin will be erythematous and flushed after treatment, depending on the intensity of the microneedling treatment. Pinpoint bleeding may occur. Do not apply makeup for at least 12 hours.
  • Day 2: A red or pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling and slight bruising may be more noticeable on the second day. Minor scratches may be visible. Apply moisturizer as needed.
  • Day 3: Skin can be pink or normal color. Swelling subsides. The skin can feel dry or feel tight. A slight outbreak of acne or milia (tiny white bumps) is possible. Light peeling usually occurs in about three days and will be replaced with a brand-new skin.



Taking Care Of Your Skin at Home

    1. Wash with a gentle cleanser using your fingers only. Gently massage the face with lukewarm water.
    2. Remove serum and other debris such as dried blood. *DO NOT SCRUB!* Use a washcloth or a Clarisonic Brush and cleanse the areas treated twice a day.
    3. Do not use exfoliating products for 72 hours. Cold compresses may be applied following treatment for comfort. If neck or décolletage are treated, the redness might last slightly longer.
    4. Apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream or Benadryl spray or gel on treated areas to reduce itching or redness.
    5. Do not exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Equally avoid saunas, steam rooms, hot baths, or showers until redness is gone.
    6. Continue to avoid sun exposure to the treatment areas and apply a broad-spectrum sunblock with an SPF minimum of 30. Apply it at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and repeat every two hours of sun exposure.
    7. After 2-3 days patients can return to regular skin care products or as soon as it is comfortable to do so. Mineral makeup may be applied the following day.
    8. Avoid strenuous exercise for two to three days after treatment. Moreover, don’t undertake waxing, facials, Botox, injectable fillers, or any other skin care treatment two weeks after treatment.
    9. New cell regeneration requires at least 6-8 (8 oz.) glasses of water a day (Increase your intake by 2 glasses)
