What to expect following a micro-needling treatment and our aftercare guidelines.

Aftercare details

  • Immediately after treatment, your skin will be pink.  Degrees vary from one individual to another, from pale pink blush to beet-root red.  Any redness is expected to resolve steadily over hours, sometimes it may take 3 or 4 days to return to normal color. Makeup can be worn the next day.

  • If redness worsens, or itching occurs in the first few hours after treatment, cold compresses or an antihistamine tablet will help to resolve any discomfort.

  • Use only the recommended products until skin color returns to normal, then usual skincare may be resumed.

  • The use of serum is recommended to support healthy skin repair and boost results.

  • SPF 30 or above should be worn daily for at least 1 or 2 weeks after a course of treatment.

  • You are advised to avoid alcohol, vigorous exercise, and extremes of heat or cold for 48 hours post-treatment. These activities have been found to increase and prolong redness and swelling.

  • Do not use hair dyes for a week following treatment.
