What to expect from your microneedling treatment?

Microneedling is a non invasive skin treatment that uses 12 tiny needles to create small channels in the skin. In the days that follow the skin recovers and heals, it’s this process that stimulates collagen production. 

It’s this production of of collagen that:

  1. Tightens and firms the skin
  2. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  3. Encourages faster turn over + growth of skin cells
  4. Improvement in overall tone + texture
  5. Decreases the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
  6. Breaks down scarring, stretch marks and scars left from acne.

Microneedling can also be preformed on almost any area where you have skin concerns, such as:

  • face, neck and chest
  • hands
  • back (acne scarring)
  • midsection, tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of stretch marks after child birth or weight loss.
  • Upper thigh area, works great on reducing the signs of cellulite.

Microneedling can be preformed alone but it is normally accompanied by a high performing medical grade serum for maximum effectiveness.

These serums are used to help the microneedling pen glide over the skin and as the needles create small channels the serum is pushed deep into the skin. 

At EASTND Moncton and Charlottetown use a medical grade hyaluronic acid and collagen during your treatment.

Microneedling Aftercare

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

  • avoid excessive sweating
  • no pools, sauna’s, hot tubs
  • try to go at least 24hours with no make up
  • no Advil, Aleve or ibuprofen 
  • avoid all BHA, AHA and Retinol(Vitamin A)

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.
