Post-MicroNeedling

So you finally had a micro-needling session or are planning/thinking about getting a treatment done. Well, micro-needling for collagen induction (CIT) has so many benefits. Controlled skin injuries produced by micro-needling send the skin into a repair mode that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. This is return will help give us that younger-looking skin we all want! Micro-Needling will help kickstart the Collagen but how we treat our skin in the following micro-needling is just as important.


What can I put on my skin at home after treatment?


Remember that you've just created thousands of little micro-injuries on your skin - now it's time for pampering!. How we treat our skin in the days following treatment will dramatically affect the rejuvenation level we experience. We should supplement orally with nutrients that provide the building blocks for collagen and elastin creation; liposomal vitamin C, omega 3, vitamins A, E, and calcium. I haven't been the best at taking vitamins daily. Actually, I sucked at it. Now that I'm in my 40s, I realize how important it is for healthy skin and a healthy you! You can easily take these vitamins as a daily multi-vitamin and work them into your daily routine. Your skin will thank you!!


 

DAY 0

The day you have micro-needling done, it is all about simplicity. As Dr. Lance Setterfield, the author of The Concise Guide to Dermal Needling, says, “keep it safe, keep it simple.”

Keeping with the safe approach during your micro-needling session, we will only use Hyaluronic Acid serum (which your body already produces). This will act as a lubricant for the micro-needling process. Other vitamins and good stuff will be infused at a later session during a nano infusion session if you want to do that. Because we are going at a medical depth during this treatment, putting anything else on your skin during this process can cause skin irritation.

Quick Rinse

As soon as the needling is finished, the skin will feel hot, look sunburnt, and possibly have evidence of pinpoint bleeding. It is ok to hop in the shower and let water rinse over the skin for 10-20 minutes while massaging away the hyaluronic acid and dried fluids on the face. If you'd rather rinse your skin over the sink, that is ok (however, I prefer the shower option). Just be sure to wash your hands thoroughly prior to and gently massage the skin with lukewarm water only. This rinsing is optional (it is ok to leave the HA on the skin, it just might not be comfortable).
