AFTERCARE

 

After Soley Treatment

For 2-5 days following your treatment, you will experience skin sensitivity, mild to moderate redness, skin crusting and flaking. Scabbing usually begins the day after treatment and typically lasts for 5 days. The area treated must NOT be covered with any type of make-up, mascara, creams or any other products until completely healed (which is usually day 3) . Apply spf for protection from the sun and it is very important to wait until all the scabs fallen off on their own.


While your skin is healing, do not use any abrasive products like exfoliators and alcohol-based toners. While it may be tempting to exfoliate your skin, you must remember that it is healing and regenerating. You should only apply products that help soothe and heal the skin during this time.

 

 

After JUA-85 Treatment

Immediately after treatment, your skin will feel warm and tight. It will also be pink or mildly red as if you were out in the sun for a while. The redness and warm feeling should subside after a few hours. But for some patients, it can take a day or two for these side effects to go away completely. For others, it may take up to a week before the redness has completely subsided. If this happens, you may use a cooling face mask to reduce the redness, heat, and inflammation.

Since microneedling creates minuscule “wounds” in your skin, you cannot continue with your regular skin care routine immediately after treatment. Instead, you will have to follow specific post microneedling aftercare instructions which we will provide you at the end of your treatment.

A professional in cosmetic medicine will suggest that you use the following aftercare methods in the days following the treatment.

1: Cleansing Your Skin

Always make sure to clean your hands before washing your face and touching the treated skin.

Gently dry your skin with a clean towel (lightly dab the water away) and do not use any powered cleansing brushes for at least a week after your treatment.

 

2 Making the Most of Your Skin’s Regeneration

Since microneedling stimulates collagen growth, you can make the most of this regeneration process with collagen-stimulating peptides. These can maximize the collagen stimulation that is occurring from the microneedling treatment.

3: Avoiding Irritants and Makeup

Do your best not wear makeup for 24 to 72 hours following your microneedling treatment so you can allow your skin to breathe and recover. Also, do not use a makeup brush at this time—especially a dirty one.

When it is safe to use a makeup brush again, make sure only to use clean ones as contaminated brushes can cause skin irritation and infections.

Your skin is sensitive and healing during this rejuvenation process, so avoid using any products that could irritate it or clog your pores.

4: Protecting your Skin from The Sun

Immediately after your treatment, you should only use chemical-free topical lotions. It is best, therefore, to avoid the sun altogether. If you must go out in the sun, you will need to apply a use a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 25 or higher sunscreen. A sunhat could also be used if you are going to be outside for a few short moments.

These measures should not only for after your treatment but should also as part of your regular day-to-day skin care routine, to protect your skin from premature aging.

5: No Need for Exfoliation

While your skin is healing, do not use any abrasive products like exfoliators and alcohol-based toners. While it may be tempting to exfoliate your skin, you must remember that it is healing and regenerating. You should only apply products that help soothe and heal the skin during this time.

 

*Please be aware that the days indicated are average healing times but can be increased by other factors. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the aftercare protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing. If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.
