MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

  • Avoid Accutane in the six months prior to beginning your treatment sessions.

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

  • Do not take anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil for at least 3 days prior to your microneedling treatment. These will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical for your skin rejuvenation.

  • Avoid unprotected sun exposure for at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure.

  • Do not shave the day of the procedure to avoid skin irritation. If there is dense hair in the treatment area, shave the day before you arrive for your appointment.

  • Avoid blood thinning agents for one week prior as bruising is a common side effect 

  • Do not take any anti-inflammatory medications for one week after the procedure.

  • Do not use ice on your face and avoid using arnica/bromelain. These may interfere with the natural inflammatory process that’s critical for your skin rejuvenation.

  • Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks. After 24 hours, always use sunblock (30 SPF or higher) and wear a hat if you’re outside.

  • Use a painkiller, such as Tylenol, if you experience any soreness.
