What Is Recovery Like After Microneedling?
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
Having the perfect complexion usually doesn’t come without at least a little bit of work. With regular skin treatments like chemical peels and microneedling from Dr. Taylor Pollei, many of our patients see fewer fine lines and wrinkles, fewer breakouts, and a glowing complexion overall. If you are new to microneedling and have never tried it before, then you may not know what you can expect from recovery. Even though we will send you home with some literature on recovery, this article will list a few things that you can expect.
The most common thing that patients notice after their microneedling treatment is redness and tenderness; both of which are completely normal. Because we usually don’t recommend that patients wear makeup for 24 to 48 hours after their treatment, you may not want to go back to work or be seen in public because the redness is very noticeable.
We encourage patients to stay out of the sun for around 48 hours after their microneedling treatment because it may make you more prone to burning. When you do start to go back in the sun, however, make sure that you are wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen.
Right after Dr. Pollei does microneedling, he applies a hyaluronic acid-based serum and a growth factor serum. Make sure that you continue to use these serums for at least one week after your treatment. If you like your results, you can continue using these serums indefinitely for anti-aging purposes.
One of the many benefits of microneedling is that recovery doesn’t take very long. if you want to learn more about microneedling schedule your appointment at our Laguna Niguel office today and call us at 949-438-8338.
