You’ll want to continue avoiding makeup for 24 hours. As well, avoid Alpha hydroxy, Beta hydroxy, Retinol or RetinA for at least 3 days post-treatment.

You can treat virtually any area of the face and body with this versatile method. We provide patients with microneedling on the face, neck, décolletage, belly area, hands, thighs, and more!
Most patients tolerate the procedure very well with little to absolutely no pain at all. If you do need some pain relief, you can take over-the-counter pain and inflammation remedies in oral form.
This also varies per patient but the minimum recommended to see results is 4 with an average of 4-6 treatments needed for optimal correction.
Most people experience redness during and after the procedure, like a mild sunburn. This is expected and encouraged because it means inflammation has occurred and the healing process is initiated.
Dry skin, burning, itching, peeling and tenderness are also possible post-procedure, and if post-treatment instructions are followed these should all be temporary.
