Pre-Treatment Preparation

Timely Scheduling

Plan your appointment at least 1-2 weeks before a special occasion, like a wedding or vacation, to mitigate the risk of bruising and swelling after the treatment.

Arnica Tablets

Consider taking Arnica tablets one week before your appointment to help prevent and minimise bruising.

Medication Caution

Refrain from using anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications, such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Omega 3/Fish Oil Supplements, Ibuprofen, Advil, and other NSAIDs, 5-7 days before treatment, unless directed by your GP or specialist.

Cold Sore Prevention

If you have a history of cold sores and are getting a skinpen microneedling treatment around the mouth, consider taking antiviral tablets the day before or on the treatment day to reduce the likelihood of developing a cold sore post-treatment. These tablets can be bought over the counter at a pharmacy without a prescription.

Rescheduling for Illness

Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you feel unwell or have an active infection in the treatment area.

Pre-Treatment Precautions

Refrain from sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning products at least 24 hours before treatment, preferably for one week before and after. Treatment within 24 hours of prolonged sun exposure may result in hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation.

Avoid chemical peels, invasive skin treatments, and laser procedures two weeks before and after skin needling.

Discontinue the use of Retin-A, Renova, and Tazorac one week before and after treatment.

Ensure the treated area is clean and free of lotion, makeup, and sunscreen before the session.

Inform your provider of any tattoos, including cosmetic tattooing, near the treatment area, as they must be avoided.

Refrain from waxing or using chemical depilatories for two weeks before and after treatment.

Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications 2-5 days before treatment, unless medically directed by your GP or specialist.

Steer clear of vigorous physical activity and excessive alcohol intake 24 hours before your treatment to minimise the risk of bruising.

Post Treatment Care

Avoid Alcohol and Strenuous Exercise

Your skin will be sensitive to the sun for several weeks after SkinPen microneedling. To prevent adverse effects, avoid sun exposure on the day of your treatment as sunscreen will not be applied. You can resume sunscreen use 24 hours after the procedure. It’s recommended to continue minimising sun exposure for 72 hours post-procedure to prevent unwanted pigmentation and sun damage.

Minimise Touch

Skin needling leaves your skin in a highly sensitive state. Avoid skincare products containing active ingredients such as retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, and vitamin C for five days post-treatment. Incorporating these products back into your routine too soon may cause irritation.

Makeup and sweating

 Refrain from applying makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment (Dermaceutic K Ceutic recovery cream) to allow your skin barrier to heal and reduce the risk of infection. Skin needling induces heat in the skin during the natural healing process. Avoid sweating and activities that generate heat in the skin for 24 hours as it can exacerbate redness, increase the risk of infection, and lead to adverse skin reactions.

avoid

Avoid any skin treatments, anti-wrinkle injections, fillers, or cosmetic injectable procedures two weeks before or after your skin needling session to ensure optimal results and minimise potential complications.
