Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, can help improve the look of acne scars, large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Microneedling involves puncturing the top layer of your skin with tiny needles. The sterile needles create an injury, accelerating collagen production and healing. It is an ideal treatment if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, fine lines, and pigmentation.

The first week after microneedling is critical to take care of your skin as the body is actively working to repair itself. Proper aftercare can help you get the most out of your treatment and protect the skin from further damage.

It advised to avoid sweaty exercises right after microneedling as it can irritate the skin, contribute to swelling, and allow harmful bacteria to thrive.

It recommended that you use a gentle cleanser or a non-exfoliant wash to wash your face after microneedling, as exfoliating may be too irritating to healing skin.

Your microneedling provider will have detailed aftercare instructions for you to follow after treatment. Some of them include using mineral sunscreen, avoiding certain skincare products, and limiting your exposure to the sun.

A few tips to remember are to drink lots of water and avoid exfoliating. For the first few days after your microneedling session, you may experience bright red skin and flaking. After that, your redness will subside and regain its normal color.

It is important to wear a broad-spectrum 30+ SPF daily after your treatment, as this will help keep your skin protected from the sun’s rays, which can cause hyperpigmentation.

Microneedling is a popular non-surgical treatment used for treating many skin conditions.

The procedure is safe and has minimal downtime. The procedure is effective for a wide variety of skin concerns, including acne scars.  It stimulates the body’s own natural processes to generate new collagen and remodel those scars.

During the microneedling process, tiny needles inserted into skin after numbing, which will cause a controlled injury to the skin and help stimulate collagen. After microneedling, the skin may become very sensitive to the sun. Sun exposure should avoid until the skin healed.

In addition to treating acne, microneedling can also use for treating wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of aging.

Before undergoing a microneedling session, it is crucial to disclose any active acne breakouts, eczema, or rosacea concerns with your provider.

The number of sessions required to achieve optimal results will vary, but most patients do regular sessions every 4-6 weeks. It recommended to avoid using products containing alpha hydroxy acids or retinoids for a week after the microneedling procedure.

Your provider may recommend a customized serum to encourage healing and enhance your results. Applying the serum to the treated area for several days will encourage healing.
