Your Guide to Post-Treatment Care and Optimal Results
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that has gained popularity over the years due to its effectiveness in improving various skin concerns. However, proper microneedling aftercare is crucial to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.
What to Expect After Microneedling
After a microneedling procedure, you can expect some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. However, these side effects usually subside within a few days. During this time, it is essential to avoid harsh skincare products, sun exposure, and makeup application. Additionally, you must keep your skin hydrated and promote healing by using the right products.
What to Use After Microneedling
Using the right products after microneedling can make a significant difference in the healing process and the overall outcome of the treatment. MDPen’s Aftercare line offers a range of products that are specifically formulated for post-microneedling care.
These products include:
Growth Factor Serum: MD Pen’s Growth Factor Serum contains a blend of peptides and growth factors that promote collagen production and accelerate the healing process. Clinical studies have shown that the use of growth factors after microneedling can enhance the results of the treatment and improve skin texture and firmness.
Hyaluronic Acid Serum: Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin. After microneedling, the skin is more receptive to skincare products, making it the perfect time to use a hyaluronic acid serum to hydrate and plump the skin.
Copper + HA Mist: MD Pen’s Copper + HA Mist is a lightweight formula that helps soothe and hydrate the skin after microneedling. It contains a blend of antioxidants and botanical extracts that promote healing and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
How to Care for Your Skin After Microneedling
Proper post-microneedling care involves avoiding sun exposure, makeup, and harsh skincare products for at least 24-48 hours after the procedure. It is also essential to keep the skin hydrated by using the recommended products and drinking plenty of water. Additionally, you should avoid any activities that may cause excessive sweating or irritation to the skin.
How Long After Microneedling Can You Wear Makeup?
It is recommended to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24-48 hours after microneedling. This allows the skin to heal and prevents any bacteria from entering the microchannels created by the needles. After this time, you can gradually introduce makeup products, starting with a mineral-based foundation and avoiding heavy or oil-based products.
