Microneedling

Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a pen that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

BEFORE MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT:

Prior to the microneedling treatment, please observe the following:

• No Retin-A products or applications 12 hours prior to your treatment.
• No auto-immune therapies or products 12 hours prior to your treatment.

• No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treat-
ment. A treatment will not be administered on sunburned skin.

• On the day of the treatment, please keep your face clean and do not
apply makeup.
• If an active or extreme breakout occurs before treatment, please
consult your practitioner.


WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED: AFTER
After your micromeedling treatment, please be aware and observe the following:
Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24 hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots. Your practitioner will discuss post-procedure skincare following the treatment to help soothe, calm, and protect the skin. Continue to treat the skin gently for 3 days. Normal skincare can be resumed again after Day 3.


POST MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT
Be certain to adhere to the following post-treatment instructions:
CLEAN Use a gentle cleanse and tepid water to cleanse the face for
the following 72 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always
make sure that your hands are clean when touching the
treated area.

HEAL
Serum antioxidants are recommended post-treatment as the
properties are ideal to help heal the skin. These products can
help soothe the skin and lessen irritation.

HYDRATE
Following your micromeedling treatment, your skin may feel
drier than normal. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to
hydrate and restore the skin back to perfect balance.
STIMULATE In the days following your treatment, and as the skin starts to
regenerate, collagen stimulating peptides are ideal to continue
the stimulation.

MAKEUP
It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 24
hours after the procedure. Do not apply any makeup with a
makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.

PROTECT 48 hours after the procedure, apply a broad spectrum UVA/
UVB sunscreen with an SPF 25 or greater. A chemical-free
sunscreen is highly recommended.

WHAT TO AVOID:
To ensure the proper healing environment, be certain to observe the following:

• For at least 3 days post treatment, DO NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids,
Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula)
or anything perceived as ‘active’ skincare.
• Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for 24 hours. No tanning beds.
• Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
• No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment.
Sweating and gym environments are harmful, rife with bacteria, and
may cause adverse reactions.
