Surrey Microneedling is a highly safe and effective treatment to get rid of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks and sun damage. As the name indicates, microneedling employs several micro-needles to penetrate your skin. The aim is to stimulate the natural healing process of your body and boost Collagen production.

Pre-Treatment Skincare Precautions

Few precautions before the microneedling will help yield better results and make sure the process goes smoothly.

  • It is advisable to avoid using any topical agents that can increase the sensitivity of the skin. Dermatologists recommend not applying retinol, exfoliants or topical antibiotics at least 5 to 7 days before the treatment.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medications 3 days before the treatment. Anti-inflammatory medication can interfere with the natural inflammation after the microneedling which is necessary for skin healing.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and laser treatments a week before microneedling.
  • Do not wax, shave or use depilatory creams a day before to avoid skin irritation.
  • Since bruising is a common side effect of microneedling, avoid taking any blood-thinning agents a week before the treatment.

Post-Treatment Skin Care Precautions

Taking care of your skin after microneedling is equally important and determines the success of the procedure. It is with optimum aftercare that Microneedling will give the intended results.

  • Since Microneedling initiates the healing process of the body, it is important to not disrupt the natural inflammation process. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicines for at least a week after microneedling.
  • Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks. After 24 hours, always use sunblock (30 SPF or higher) and wear a hat if you’re outside.
  • It is advisable to avoid wearing any makeup after Surrey Microneedling and allow your skin to breathe.
  • Do not use ice packs on your face. For the first 2 days, use lukewarm water to wash your face and shift to a gentle, non-exfoliating face wash after 2 days.
  • Avoid using active ingredients like retinol that can irritate the skin.
  • Avoid activities that can sweat your skin and expose it to bacteria that can penetrate the tiny wounds.

The best thing about Microneedling Downtown Vancouver is that its recovery period is quite short. It is common to experience redness after a microneedling session. Some people also experience skin dryness and sloughing off for the first two days. These are common after-effects and will subside in a couple of days, after which you will notice a considerably glowing complexion.

Our Surrey Spa team of highly experienced skin experts recommend taking these precautions to ensure quick recovery in addition to firmer, radiant and smooth skin.
