Skin needling, also known as microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is a popular cosmetic procedure for treating various skin issues. It involves puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to stimulate collagen production. However, understanding and following proper aftercare is essential for achieving optimal results and minimizing potential side effects.

Post-Procedure Symptoms

Experiencing redness, swelling, and slight discomfort akin to mild sunburn is common after skin needling. These symptoms generally subside within a few days, and you may also notice your skin feeling tight and dry or experience slight peeling or flaking.

Let's chat about how to care for your skin after the first 48 hours.

Immediate Aftercare (First 48 Hours)

The initial 48 hours post-procedure are crucial in ensuring a swift and efficient healing process. It’s essential to:

Avoid Sun Exposure

Avoid direct sunlight to prevent irritation and damage to sensitive skin. If necessary, wear a hat or scarf for additional protection.

Skip Makeup

Allow your skin to breathe and recover by avoiding makeup and other cosmetic products.

Stay Cool

Avoid strenuous exercises, saunas, and hot showers that can intensify inflammation or redness.

For enhanced comfort and healing immediately after the procedure (at the clinic), apply a thick layer of TR Pro+ Post Procedure Aesthetic Gel 10g similar to the thickness of a 20-cent coin, over the treated area, like applying a mask to soothe and protect the treated area. Allow the gel to absorb into the skin; you can cover it with a loose dressing if needed.
