Dermapen microneedling is a cutting-edge skincare treatment that stimulates collagen production and enhances skin rejuvenation. To ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery, proper pre and post-treatment care is essential. At Santi London, we’re dedicated to your skin’s well-being. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you prepare for and recover from your Dermapen microneedling session.
- Consultation: Schedule a consultation with our experts to discuss your skin concerns, goals, and medical history. This helps us tailor the treatment to your needs.
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Minimize sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) daily before the treatment.
- Avoid Blood-Thinning Medications: If possible, refrain from blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, a week prior to the treatment to reduce the risk of bruising.
- Avoid Topical Products: Avoid using retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and vitamin C serums for a few days before the treatment.
- Hydrate and Moisturize: Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized in the days leading up to the treatment.
- Gentle Cleansing: Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser after the treatment to remove any residual numbing cream and impurities.
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and applying sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher). Sunscreen is a must, even if it’s a cloudy day.
- Avoid Makeup: Avoid applying makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment to prevent infection and clogged pores.
- Hydration is Key: Keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a hydrating moisturizer.
- Avoid Harsh Products: Avoid using harsh skincare products, such as retinoids and exfoliants, for a few days post-treatment.
- Avoid Excessive Heat: Steer clear of hot baths, saunas, and intense workouts for the first 48 hours to prevent excessive sweating.
- Gentle Cleanser: Use a mild, fragrance-free cleanser to clean your face gently.
- Hydrating Serum: Opt for a hydrating serum with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to maintain skin moisture.
- Soothing Moisturizer: A moisturizer with soothing ingredients like aloe vera can help calm and nourish the skin.
- Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen: Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and apply it daily, even if you’re indoors.
- Post-Treatment Kit: Ask our experts about Santi’s recommended post-treatment kit for optimal results.
