Before your microneedling treatment you should avoid the use of self-tanning products for up to 48 hours, and avoid sun exposure and the use of skin products that contain vitamin A or retinol for 24 hours.
Microneedling treatment uses small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, which then triggers a wound healing response that renews the skin cells. As part of this, collagen and elastin are produced and give an almost immediate plumping effect.
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results.
Microneedling is less invasive than many other procedures and will result in little to no downtime. Following your microneedling proceure, you may notice the skin around the treated area appear slightly red, swollen, and tighter than usual, but these side effects are perfectly normal and will usually subside within a few hours. Your personal Treatment Coordinator will explain the aftercare recommendations following microneedling treatment and fully prepare you beforehand, but you will be able to return to your normal day-to-day lifestyle and apply mineral makeup almost instantly.
