Skin Treatments Aftercare Advice: Microneedling, Peels & Dermaplaning

Aftercare For Microneedling Treatments

Sun Exposure Precautions

Post-treatment, your skin is particularly sensitive and more prone to sunburn. It's crucial to protect your skin with care:

  • Sunscreen is Essential: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 every day, irrespective of the weather. Even on overcast days, UV rays can penetrate and affect your skin.

  • Regular Reapplication: It's important to reapply sunscreen frequently throughout the day to ensure continuous protection.

  • Added Vigilance: For the initial month following treatment, we recommend using a sunscreen with SPF 50 to shield the regenerating skin and secure the best outcomes.

Post-Treatment Makeup Guidelines

Allow your skin a 24-hour respite from makeup after the skin needling session. Should you need to apply makeup subsequently:

  • Selective Choices: Select non-comedogenic products 

  • Clean Application: Always utilise clean applicators to avoid introducing bacteria to sensitive areas.

Managing Water Temperature

Hot water can be detrimental to rejuvenating skin, removing essential oils and impeding the healing process.

  • Refrain from hot showers or baths for at least 24 hours post-treatment to permit the treatment serum to fully penetrate and take effect.

Avoid Touching or Picking at the Skin

Your hands harbour numerous microbes that could lead to infection.

  • Refrain from touching the treated area to avoid disturbing the healing process.

  • Do not pick - picking at the skin can result in scarring and impede recovery.

Heat and Exercise

Intense heat and perspiration can aggravate freshly needled skin.

  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis, and vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours.

Hydrate Your Skin

Moisturising plays a vital role in the healing process.

  • Moisturiser Selection: Choose a safe, fragrance-free moisturiser or serum that is compatible with your skin type.

  • Consistent Application: Regularly apply your chosen product to encourage skin rejuvenation and maintain hydration
