Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that has become increasingly popular among those looking to reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections. This treatment involves puncturing the surface layer on your skin with a needling pen, such as the DP4, to stimulate collagen production and improve texture.
What are the immediate effects of microneedling?
The almost immediate effect you will see from this treatment is plumper, healthier skin with a more even complexion. This occurs due to the increased collagen and elastin production within your epidermis, or the outermost layer of your skin, which is prompted by your skin’s “healing” from the needling.
What products should be used during microneedling?
While the treatment itself starts the rejuvenation process, the use of improper products during the treatment can greatly hinder the results. Ideally, your treatment provider uses products that are not only appropriate for microneedling, but are also specific to handling your skin care concern.
Dp Dermaceuticals offers a selection of professional microneedling products accessible only to registered providers, such as the MG Collection, which can be used to enhance treatment outcomes for all major skincare concerns treated by microneedling, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, rosacea and many more.
Did you know? Dp Dermaceuticals products were originally formulated specifically for in-clinic use before, during and after microneedling treatments! Today, many products are available for at-home use while some - such as the ÜBER Peels - remain professional-only due to the potency of their ingredients.
What products should be used after microneedling?
To ensure optimal results and quicken recovery, it is important to use appropriate skincare products that reduce inflammation and other potential side effects like redness, puffiness, breakouts, and bacteria growth.
The Pre-Post Microneedling Starter Kit by Dp Dermaceuticals is an excellent solution for post-treatment care (as well as pre-procedure prep) as it contains four key products that work synergistically to promote optimal results.
This starter kit includes an oil-based cleanser which provides deep cleansing without stripping skin’s natural oils or clogging blocking pores; a Hyaluronic Acid serum with patented HylaFuse technology; a nourishing Resveratrol cream with Copper Peptides, Vitamin and Vitamin E; a hydrating Hyaluronic Acid 3D Sculptured Face mask to soothe irritated skin; and finally an SPF 30 healing camouflage to reduce the appearance of redness while providing necessary protection from UV rays. Together, these products provide a comprehensive approach for helping you maintain healthy skin after microneedling treatment sessions.
Are there any adverse long-term effects of microneedling?
Most experts agree there isn't much risk involved under normal usage. However, as with any treatment, microneedling done in excess can cause potential damage overtime ranging from mild irritation to persistent scarring.
Microneedling has many benefits and requires no downtime. With proper protocols and appropriate post-treatment skincare products - such as the one offered by Pre-Post Microneedling Starter Kit - the effects of microneedling are positive for your skin!
