Maximize Your Microneedling Treatments with These Microneedling Post Care Tips

IMAGE Retinal ActiveIf you’ve invested the time and effort into getting skin resurfacing treatments done, such as microneedling, you want to follow through with excellent post care in-between sessions. Give your skin the best chance to recover by protecting and pampering it, so you reap the full benefits of microneedling results and can achieve optimal treatment outcomes.

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves a handheld device with tiny needles that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to promote healthy collagen production. This is a process that can improve the look of skin’s tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of acne scars, for example.

The following tips address some microneedling post care best practices, so you know what to do (and what to avoid) in order to help attain optimal microneedling treatment outcomes.

Clean Skin Is the Path to Clear Skin

After a treatment, it may be tempting to avoid using anything on your face in fear of losing your perfect dewiness. But clean skin is the first step to healthy skin. The caveat is that you should use skincare products designed especially for skin enhancement treatments. You want a high-quality cleanser that will gently remove dirt and debris without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Some of the key ingredients to look out for include powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories like vitamins E and C, grape seed oil, rice bran oil, apricot kernel extract, and hyaluronic acid. Your skin should feel soft and smooth after cleansing, not dried out and tight.

Hydrated Skin Is Happy Skin

Applying a microneedling serum designed to help provide intense hydration and repair is another important step in your skincare routine after a microneedling procedure. Regardless of skin type, the skin needs a proper amount of hydration. A resurfacing treatment can sometimes make the skin dry, so it’s important to protect it with a “second skin” in the form of a serum. The best will be specifically designed for microneedling. Seek out a serum formulated with a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, plus zinc and vitamin B to promote skin healing and help reduce the appearance of redness or inflammation.

Cover and Recover with Moisturizer + SPF Protection

Using a lightweight moisturizing cream with a full spectrum sunscreen is the final step in your microneedling post care routine. You want to protect your face from the sun’s harmful rays and other environmental factors. Look for a non-comedogenic product with SPF 30 and other skin-beneficial ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, copper peptides, antioxidant-rich peppermint oil, and numerous vitamins. Your moisturizer should have a silky consistency with cooling peppermint and SPF protection. It shouldn’t feel heavy or clog your pores. Some of the best products can even act as an everyday foundation, available in several colors for post care treatment and beyond.

Following the appropriate skincare protocols with the best corrective ingredients is essential to your home care after microneedling procedures. You’ll not only aid your skin in healing and recovery, but you’ll also get the most out of your microneedling treatments. You can get a starter kit from your provider, dermatologist, or online from a trusted distributor.
