Since Microneedling induces collagen with a wound healing effect, it may be your preference to do a series of treatments for deeper lines, acne scars or uneven skin texture and tone. from the very first treatment, subtle improvements may be seen/felt even in the days following your first visit. This is only the beginning of a progressive process. Once the treatment has been performed, there is a short period of 24-48 hours where you may experience sunburn like redness and sensitivity, and will need to adhere to using only recommended, simple products, and avoid your usual cleansing and moisturizing and routine. Sun exposure, foundation makeup, and use of any retinoids should be avoided for several days. In fact, during the first 2 weeks of healing, my recommendation is to let your skin heal and stop using anything that causes strong cell turn over.
Nano-needling is for everyone. There is zero downtime because there is no wound created. Even if you have deeper lines or scars, the improvement your skin will see with nano-needling will be awesome. You will see and feel the texture of your skin change after a series of treatments, which can be done as close together as weekly. In fact, it is recommended to do several weekly or every other week treatments in a row, and then switch to maintenance from there. If you are getting married or have a special occasion to attend, this is THE perfect treatment to do one or 2 days before. Your moisturizer will absorb incredibly and your makeup will glide on like you’ve always wanted it to. It is my personal favorite.
Lastly, depending on your goals, you can alternate doing a series of micro and nano-needling treatments!
