What to Put On Your Skin After a Microneedling Session

You may already know that microneedling can smooth and rejuvenate your skin. As an added benefit, it prepares your skin to receive maximum benefits from any treatments you apply for several days afterward. Microneedling combines remarkably with medical-grade skincare products to give your skin a brighter, more youthful appearance. 

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels trigger healing and repair processes that restore a younger-looking complexion. At FACE Skincare~Medical~Wellness, we use the Morpheus8 system, an advanced microneedling method. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to trigger collagen production that tightens and firms the skin. Morpheus is known as the gold-standard in RF microneedling, industry wide.

How Does Microneedling Work for Skin Rejuvenation?

Morpheus8 microneedling creates a series of micro-channels in the skin. The healthy skin surrounding these areas immediately begins the healing process. The needles emit radiofrequency energy into deeper layers of the skin, triggering cells there to produce more collagen. This new collagen restores youthful firmness and smoother texture. 

What to Put On Your Skin After Microneedling

Microneedling will leave your skin sensitive for several days. These few days are the perfect time to treat your skin with high-quality skincare products to maximize the benefits of your treatment. We recommend that you:

  • Avoid harsh scrubs or products
  • Only clean your skin with a professionally formulated cleanser
  • Apply targeted skincare serums that will penetrate deeply into your skin
  • Keep your skin well-hydrated with a gentle moisturizer
  • Apply medical-grade sun protection

We recommend Skin Saint skincare products for post-microneedling. Your skincare expert can help you choose the best products for your skin. This line of professional skincare products has powerful ingredients for total skin rejuvenation. They are also gentle enough for the skin just after microneedling and other treatments. 

Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?

You might notice some sensitivity, swelling, or small spots for one to three days after treatment. You can resume your usual activities next day. While microneedling requires no downtime, we recommend proper post-treatment skincare to achieve your best results. 

What Results Will I See After Microneedling?

You will start to see results within a few weeks of your first treatment. Your results will continue to improve for about three months. The number of treatments needed depends on the conditions you want to treat. Microneedling results usually last about a year, and many people have yearly maintenance treatments to maintain their skin’s firmness and smoothness. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates want to rejuvenate their skin and see improvements in texture and tone. You might need to wait if you have an active skin condition affecting your face. You should let your microneedling expert know if you have a history of forming abnormal scars.
