Is There Any Downtime After Microneedling?

Want a clearer, brighter, and firmer-looking skin? 

Then it may be time to introduce yourself to microneedling. This non-surgical treatment uses a handheld device to gently puncture the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s collagen and elastin production. These results promote sped-up cellular turnover, which can help tighten skin, improve skin tone, and even fade old acne scarring.

Interested, but want to learn more about what to expect after microneedling? Let’s take a look at downtime after microneedling treatments

Microneedling Glendale

There’s No Downtime

When it comes to microneedling, there’s no “recovery” period or downtime. This means you won’t have to take time off from work, like you would with traditional cosmetic surgery or a chemical peel.

Expect Some Redness and Mild Swelling

Because microneedling is considered a minimally invasive treatment, you should expect your skin to appear red and swollen for the first few days after your procedure. This redness can be covered with makeup, but some clients opt to get their microneedling treatments done on the weekends so those symptoms aren’t as obvious on Monday morning at work.

You’ll See Some Peeling

Microneedling can cause skin peeling, so prepare to see some flaking within the first week after your procedure. It’s important not to manually peel off flaking skin; let it come off naturally! To help promote faster peeling, you should moisturize and use a gentle cleanser.
