How will I look after the procedure?
Some people notice minor swelling and redness, which has the appearance of mild sunburn. This usually resolves within 24 to 48 hours. You may also experience slight bruising and pinpoint bleeding in the treatment areas. Within a week or two, your skin will have a noticeably smoother look and have a fresh radiant appearance. The results will continue to improve over two or three months.
Is there any downtime?
You will experience temporary inflammation of the skin which resolves within a few hours. Your skin may retain a slightly pink look for up to two days after treatment. Taking a hyaluronic acid supplement after the treatment can help to reduce inflammation.
What is the aftercare treatment?
After micro-needling scar treatment, you should:
- Avoid sun exposure for a week or longer
- Rinse your face with a gentle cleanser each morning and night
Can microneedling be performed on any skin color?
This type of microneedling procedure is safe to perform on all skin types and does not pose a risk of causing hyperpigmentation.
What other conditions can microneedling treat?
Micro-needling with PRP can also be used to improve fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, sagging skin, uneven skin texture, and stretch marks.
