Micro-Needling Pre-Treatment Instructions:

For best results, it is advised to avoid the following products & procedures as directed below prior your treatment:

  • Avoid excessive Alcohol, Aspirin, NSAIDs (ibuprofen, Aleve) Garlic, Gingko Biloba, Fish Oils and Vitamin E for 5-7 days prior to your treatment unless recommended by your Doctor. This may help to decrease the risk of bruising during your treatment, but is not contraindicated.
  • Stop using topical retinoids 1 week prior to treatment
  • Avoid sun exposure 2 weeks prior to the treatment
  • For Cold Sore sufferers – it is recommended to take anti-viral medication, the day before, the day of and the day after your treatment.
  • You should probably avoid this treatment if you have a blood clotting disorder or if you’ve been diagnosed with eczema, rosacea, or skin cancer, or if you currently have any kind of skin infection.
Micro-Needling Post-Treatment Instructions:
  • The initial 72 hours post-procedure are the most critical. Avoid direct sun and heat for 1-2 weeks. This includes simple day to day tasks such as gardening, cooking over a hot stove for a long period of time, sitting next to a bonfire or fireplace, etc.
  • Discontinue use of any Alpha-Hydroxy products 5 days after treatment. You may resume your home care regimen when skin is no longer flaking and peeling.
  • Use hydrating and reparative products. Products rich in soothing and healing ingredients are best to encourage new healthy cell growth. Peptides, antioxidants, stem cells, vitamins A, C and E, and growth factors work very well.
  • Use physical sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher. Re-apply every 30 to 90 minutes. Do NOT go outside without sun protection (even on a cloudy day).
  • Do not apply your regular make-up and SPF for a minimum of 24 hours after your treatment.
  • Itching, redness and swelling are normal parts of the healing process. These symptoms rarely persist longer than 24-72 hrs.
  • Do NOT scratch or peel the skin as this may cause permanent scarring
  • Limit exercise the first week.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Immediate pinpoint bleeding can occur, which should resolve within 24 hours.
  • Minor redness and swelling may occur for 1-2 days.
  • Minor peeling and flakiness can occur after a few days. Don’t pick at the loose skin.
  • If you must wear makeup, we recommend one created specifically for post procedures called Oxygenetics™.
Micro-Needling Possible Side Effects:
  • Redness and Swelling: Since the micro needling treatment works by creating tiny pinprick injuries on your skin, one of the more common side effects is temporary redness and swelling. This should usually go away in about two or three days. It is because of the likelihood of these side effects that we recommend taking a few days off work if you are having the treatment on your face. Although you will be able to go about your normal routine soon after the treatment, many people feel self-conscious if the redness is in a visible area.
    • You may take an anti-inflammatory Paracetamol if necessary.
  • One potential issue of micro needling is that it could reactivate the cold sore or herpes simplex virus. If you have had this infection in the past, it is not a good idea for you to undergo micro needling. You will be asked if you have a history of cold sores before the treatment. If you do, then we will be able to suggest alternative treatments that might be better for you.
  • Infection: The risk of developing an infection after micro needling treatment is very low when it is conducted at a reputable clinic, but there is still a small chance of it happening. If you notice any unusual symptoms such as pain, severe swelling, or fever, you should seek advice. You may need a course of antibiotics to eliminate the infection.
  • Existing Skin Conditions: Another possible issue with micro needling treatment is that it can exacerbate certain conditions. You should probably avoid this treatment if you have a blood clotting disorder or if you’ve been diagnosed with eczema, rosacea, or skin cancer, or if you currently have any kind of skin infection.
