Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) Aftercare

Immediately after your Medical Microneedling procedure, your health care provider will apply a moisturizer. 

  • For a week, avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil. 
  • DO NOT ice face or use arnica or bromelain. These agents may inhibit the natural inflammatory process that rejuvenates your skin. 
  • Use Tylenol as needed for soreness. For two weeks, do not sunbathe or expose yourself to prolonged direct sunlight. After 24 hours, always use a full spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or above. When you are exposed to the sun, wear a hat and apply sunscreen every two hours. 

Days 1-3

A sunburn-like effect is normal. The skin will feel tight, dry, and sensitive to the touch. After treatment, wash skin gently with a gentle cleanser, cool water, and pat dry no earlier than 4 hours later. 

Redness or sensitivity might well be present. Swelling can last 2-4 days, depending on how aggressive of a treatment you received. Plan your social calendar accordingly! 

  • Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating. 
  • Avoid jacuzzi, sauna, or steam baths for 48 hours after treatment due to open pores, or up to 48 hours if inflammation exists. 
  • Use ONLY the items in your Epionce post-procedure kit. 
  • If needed, sleep on your back with the head of the bed elevated to minimize swelling or pain. 

Days 2-7

Peeling may start 3-5 days after treatment. You will notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. 

  • Do not pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! Allow old skin to flake off naturally and KEEP SKIN MOISTURIZED AT ALL TIMES. 

For extra dry skin, apply moisturizer every two hours if needed.

Days 5-7

You may restart your regular skincare products and Retin-A once your skin is no longer irritated. Many patients have noticed continued skin improvement for months following treatment. 

For best results, its recommended that you complete 4 treatment, every 4 weeks.
