Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy rejuvenates skin by stimulating your own collagen and elastin. Microneedling is minimally invasive with little downtime and safe for all skin types. Results will be radiant, smoother, firmer, younger looking skin however proper aftercare skin care is a must.
Now that you are home, you may be asking now what?
Your skin needs time to recover and some tender loving care, after all we just filled it with tiny pin wholes necessary for the healing process and collagen production.
First 24-48 hours
Cleanse: First thing the next morning it’s time to gently cleanse your face with lukewarm water, be sure to pat dry your face not rub as it may still feel sensitive. Moisturizing is important as your skin may be a bit dehydrated after microneedling treatments. Be sure to apply a SPF of at least 30 every single day.
Heal / Recovery: This is where the fun begins. It’s the actual healing process when the magic happens and our skin starts to increase collagen and elastin production. You will experience redness and heat due to inflammation in the treated areas. This should subside in 24hrs and if uncomfortable a cold damp facecloth will help.
For best results, it’s important not to take any anti-inflammatories such as Advil, Aleve or any other ibuprofen as we want the skin to naturally recover on it’s own.
Moisturize: Many will experience some dryness all over or in certain areas. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated and we recommend “Tremella Serum” (a natural alternative to hyaluronic acid) and a natural clean moisturizer.
Also washing with an oil based cleanser is recommended.
And of course drink plenty of water!
Makeup: Mineral make up is always best and can be used after 24 to 48 hours. This is a great time to check your products expiry date and clean your brushes!
Repeat: Remember much like going to the gym, one microneedling treatment will not yield the results you are looking for. At EASTND we have designed membership packages to help you along your skin journey. It is recommended at least 3 to 4 treatments and more depending on your skin goals.
Skin Routine: Professional Skin Services are an investment in your skin health however won’t be as effective without a proper consistent skin.

A.M. - cleanser, toner, moisturizer and SPF 30.
