Microneedling - Pre Care Information

Do’s & Don’ts when preparing for your Microneedling treatment.

-Do not use active topicals that may increase the sensitivity of your skin such as retinoids, exfoliants, topical antibiotics or acids 5 days prior to your treatment.

-Do not take anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen 3 days prior to your Microneedling session. These will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical for your skin rejuvenation.

-Avoid ANY other facial treatment at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment.

-Avoid blood thinning agents for 1 week prior to your treatment to prevent bruising.

-Avoid extensive sun exposure / the use of tanning beds at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment.
(We obviously advise that you stop using tanning beds altogether because they increase your risk of skin cancer and accelerate visible signs of aging).

-Likewise, avoid Hair Removal at least 1 week prior to your treatment.
(Whether that be Waxing, Laser or Cream – Shaving is okay if done gently ensuring no nicks).

-In addition, please make sure you are not wearing makeup on the day of your treatment.
