What to expect after your microneedling treatment:


The treated area may be extremely warm for 1-2 hours after the treatment. Warmth may continue for 12-24 hours after the treatment. Cold compresses may provide comfort during this time.


Redness is normal and expected. Redness can persist for up to 3 days depending on the intensity of the treatment. Use gentle cleansers and keep your skin moisturized and out of the sun to allow your skin time to heal and limit further stress on your skin.

DRYNESS: Following treatment your skin may be very dry and feel like sandpaper before flaking and peeling off. Keep your skin well moisturized to support the healing process. Do NOT pick at your skin.


Swelling is common and expected immediately following treatment. Use of a cold compress will help to relieve the swelling. The first morning post treatment is when swelling is more prevalent, especially under the eyes.

After Your Treatment:


Cleanse the skin two times a day with a gentle cleanser. If applicable, apply any remaining PRP or Exosomes 4 hours after treatment following cleansing and let dry for about 2-3 minutes. DO NOT rub, scrub, use an exfoliant or skin care brush on the treated area.


Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over the treated area and reapplied whenever your skin feels dry. Avoid any exfoliating polish, complexion renewal pads, vitamin C or any other irritative products for 5-7 days or until the peeling process is complete.


Sunscreen is a MUST and should be used daily beginning the day after treatment and used consistently for up to 3 months post procedure. Use a physical sunscreen with Broadband UVA and UVB protection and a SPF of 30. Ensure to reapply during sun exposure.


  • Use soft cloth and soft towels to avoid any scrubbing
  • Make-up can typically be worn once the peeling process is complete
