SKIN post treatment care

1. Preferably, no other products other than the products provided to you should be applied until the following day.

2. Avoid washing your face for the first 6 hours. Use tepid (lightly warm) water for the initial 24 hours to rinse the treated area. No cleanser required at this time.

3. Gently pat dry with a clean towel and follow with your aftercare products provided. The aftercare cream heals and also tightens your skin. Hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture Tom trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). You may apply moisturizer like Cetaphil to reduce dryness when the aftercare cream feels dry to touch.

4. After 24 hours, you can use a gentle cleanser (example, Cetaphil or Cerave) to cleanse the face for the next 72 hours.

5. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area. Have a hand sanitizer or anti-bacterial wipes on hand. 

6. Avoid exposure to dust, pet dander and other irritants as best you can. You may experience a mild allergic reaction to pets and other things you typically do not react to within the first 24 hours.

7. Your skin may feel warm and tight, like a mild sunburn. This is an expected outcome during the first few days of this treatment.

8. Apply the aftercare products provided and moisturize with your favorite moisturizer or a product like Cetaphil or Cerave.

9. You may also apply a cool, damp washcloth as desired for comfort.

10. After the initial 24 hours, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 for two weeks. A mineral-based, chemical-free sunscreen is highly recommended.

11. Do not apply any makeup with an old makeup brush, especially if it is not clean. New makeup brushes, or freshly cleansed brushes, are best. 

12. After the therapy, nothing topical should be applied for at least 90 minutes. You may use a quality mineral makeup after 90 minutes of treatment. However, it is highly recommended that makeup and sunscreen not be applied for 24 hours after the procedure.

13. For your first treatment (and treatments at .25mm in general), you can expect mild redness and swelling and a tight, warm sensation between 4 to 24 hours.

14. Later treatments, or those with longer needling lengths may produce redness and swelling along with tiny flecks of redness for between 4 to 72 hours. These are easily covered with a quality mineral makeup.

15. Mild skin sloughing may occur for a few days after the treatment.

16. Mild acne and milia (tiny white bumps) can occur in rare cases. Don’t pick; they should go away in a few days.

17. Trans-Epidermal Water Loss is a common temporary side effect and can leave you feeling dry through the first week. Keep your recommended moisturizer with you during the day and apply as frequently as necessary to avoid a dry sensation.

18. The more you moisturize, the better your results will be. Do not exfoliate at least for 7 days. 

19. For at least 3 days post-treatment, do NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Retin-A, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula) or anything else perceived as “active” skincare.

20. Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for at least 48 hours. No tanning beds! Ensure you have proper sun protection whenever you are out in the sun.

21. Do not go swimming and avoid hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas for at least 24 hours post-treatment.

22. No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment; sweating and gym environments must be avoided during the first 72 hours post-treatment.

23. If prolonged irritation occurs, please contact us or your practitioner, directly.

24. Return for your follow-up treatment in about a month or as recommended.
