After at least six hours, you should be ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment done on that day. Most go out hours later with no makeup at all, but if you would like to apply makeup, then we recommend at least six hours before you do so, and if you can, you may even wait until the next morning; mineral-based makeup is the best after the treatment. Unless advised by us, do not use any additional products during the first four to six hours following the treatment.
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over a few days without any further complications.
Make sure to follow the recommended recovery protocol once you get home. Couple this with the commitment to avoiding the sun as much as possible, three to five days off from working out, and refraining from deep exfoliation and/or retinol products for seven to 10 days post treatment, then you are well on your way to maximizing microneedling benefits for yourself!
