Post-Microneedling Skin Care: Your Guide to a Flawless Glow
How to look after your skin after Micro Needling
So, you’ve just had a microneedling treatment and your skin is on its way to looking its absolute best. But what should you do to ensure your skin continues to radiate that youthful glow?
Taking care of your skin after microneedling is crucial to achieving the desired results and maintaining the health of your complexion. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the essential post-microneedling skin care steps to keep your skin looking flawless.
After your microneedling treatment, it’s essential to be gentle with your skin. Cleanse your face with a mild, non-abrasive cleanser to remove any impurities or residues. Avoid harsh scrubs, hot water, or aggressive rubbing, as your skin may be more sensitive post-treatment. We recommend DMK milky cleanser post treatment which is very gentle on the skin
Hydration is Key
Microneedling can temporarily increase skin’s dryness, so replenishing moisture is vital. Opt for a hydrating, non-comedogenic moisturizer to lock in hydration without clogging your freshly opened pores. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which are great for restoring the skin’s moisture balance. We recommend DMK Contraderm. It’s nourishing and calming with a burst of hydration, which is essential post needling.
Your skin will be more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful UV rays immediately after microneedling. Sunscreen becomes your best friend in preventing sun damage and maintaining your results. Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher, even on cloudy days, and reapply throughout the day, especially if you spend time outdoors. All our clients love using Image Matte sunscreen, which holds a high level of zinc oxide to protect the skin without making it oily.
Skip Makeup (for a bit)
Give your skin some time to breathe and heal by avoiding makeup for the first 24-48 hours after microneedling. Makeup can clog your pores and potentially introduce bacteria, so it’s best to wait until your skin has settled down.
Patience is a Virtue
Your skin will naturally go through a healing process after microneedling. Redness, swelling, and minor discomfort are common, but they should subside within a few days. Be patient and resist the urge to touch, pick, or scratch your skin during this time to prevent any complications.
Avoid Harsh Products
In the days following your microneedling treatment, steer clear of harsh skincare products, such as retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). These can be too intense for your sensitive skin during the healing process and may cause irritation.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Your skin’s appearance is greatly influenced by your overall health. Stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, and get plenty of rest. A healthy lifestyle supports your skin’s natural ability to repair and regenerate.
Follow Post-Care Instructions
Your skincare professional will provide you with specific post-care instructions tailored to your skin type and the microneedling device used. Follow these guidelines diligently to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.
Microneedling can work wonders for your skin, but the key to achieving and maintaining a flawless glow lies in your post-care routine. By following these essential steps, you’ll help your skin recover, enhance the results of your treatment, and keep your complexion looking its absolute best. Remember, consistency and patience are your allies on your journey to radiant and healthy skin!
