Proper Skincare Layering for Morning and Night After Microneedling with MDPen's Aftercare Recovery Kit

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help improve the overall appearance of your skin by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. After receiving a microneedling treatment, it’s important to properly care for your skin to maximize results and prevent any adverse reactions. 

MDPen’s Aftercare Recovery Kit is an excellent option for post-microneedling care, containing a variety of products designed to hydrate, treat, repair, and protect your skin.

What to Expect After Microneedling

After a microneedling treatment, it’s common to experience some mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity. These side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days, depending on the intensity of the treatment. Your skin may also feel dry and tight, which is why it’s important to properly hydrate and nourish your skin with high-quality skincare products.

What to Use After Microneedling

MDPen’s Aftercare Recovery Kit includes four products: a hydrating cleanser, a vitamin C serum, a retinol serum, and a physical sunscreen. Each product is designed to target specific skin concerns and promote healing after microneedling

Here’s a breakdown of how to use each product in the kit:
1. MDPen Hydrating Cleanser
2. MDPen Vitamin C + E Serum
3. MDPen Radiant Retinol Balancing Complex
4. MDPen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

"Retinol and myself are new friends. Any products that say they help reduce wrinkles and fade dark spots, I am instantly drawn to. I have grown up practically outside and ALWAYS in the sun! As everyone knows that if you don’t take care of your skin and use protection, then the sun is not your best friend and leaves behind dark spots… which I have. I have been using MDPen Radiant Retinol 1% Balancing Complex for about a month now and have noticed a difference in my complexion. My dark spots above my lip and by my forehead are barely noticeable anymore and I couldn’t be more excited. I first got nervous using retinol because of hearing that some can be too strong and irritate or dry out your skin, and this one is FAR from doing either of those. It helps heal your skin from the inside out in the most calming way. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a gentle but hard working product that works for anti-aging, wrinkles and dark spots!!"
