Microneedling has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in recent years, ranking just under Botox in 2017. Rejuvenating the skin with treatments like microneedling is an excellent way to improve a person’s appearance and skin texture. It has been a pivotal tool for people who are looking to reduce acne scars, facial lines, and deep wrinkles.

After a microneedling procedure, there are some results that are to be expected. Also, there are necessary steps a person should take to retain the results from microneedling.
You can expect for your face to be red. No this isn’t a blushing reaction. Although redness is totally normal after treatment, it will typically reduce and go away after approximately 24 hours. Red skin may last longer after a more intense microneedling treatment. Redness after treatment may also be sensitive to touch, so it is a good idea to keep the skin moist with provided ointments after treatment to reduce sensitivity and redness.
After microneedling treatment, some people may experience rough skin, or skin that feels different than their normal skin. Since microneedling is the process of making tiny holes in the skin, the result will be inflammation and maybe some bruising, depending on the intensity of treatment. This is why the skin may feel rough to the touch. Some doctors may recommend taking an antihistamine before treatment to help with reducing inflammation
Visible Marks & Bleeding
Microneedling involves penetrating the skin with hundreds of tiny holes, which are commonly referred to as “microinjuries.” Although these tiny injuries occur on the surface of the skin, there is still a possibility that they could leave marks on the skin, but these marks will fade away after a short time during normal circumstances of recovery. Bleeding is to be expected because of the microinjuries. Fortunately, topical creams help to reduce any pain associated with this treatment.
Skincare After Microneedling
Directly after the microneedling, you will notice increased circulation in the skin. After the microneedling treatment, you will notice an immediate fresh glow to your skin. A feeling of tightness in the skin is common, which most patients actually appreciate – like a mini facelift. Here are a few tips on steps to take after treatment.
- Stay out of the sun.
- Do not use any skin products with “active ingredients.”
- Avoid using makeup after treatment.
- Use a cooling facemask
- Avoid sweating.
- DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
