Microneedling is a multi-purpose cosmetic procedure that involves the use of tiny, sterilized needles to prick the skin to naturally boost the production of collagen and elastin, which can help with a variety of skin challenges.
This popular treatment is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, stretch marks, and acne scars, minimize pores, and even out skin tone. Microneedling can also encourage hair growth in people with alopecia.
Like any aesthetic treatment, its results can be improved - or worsened - by the skincare products used inside the treatment room, as well as at home. Dp Dermaceuticals was originally created for treatment providers to boost their microneedling results with synergistic products. Today, both treatment providers and clients can benefit from these formulations.
What Products Should You Use After Microneedling?
Investing in your skin’s health requires specialty treatments like microneedling as well as skincare products that support and elevate those results. These products must have clean ingredients that work synergistically to address your skin’s specific challenges.
Using a lineup of products developed by a single manufacturer, such as Dp Dermaceuticals, can help you achieve results faster than combining a regimen of products from various brands. This is because the products are created with ingredients that complement each other while serving different purposes.
Let’s take a look at the most popular products in the Dp Dermaceuticals lineup for use after microneedling:
To ensure optimal results, you must cleanse your face effectively to remove makeup, bacteria, and dirt before applying any other product. Effectively cleansing your skin also helps ensure better permeability of products.
TRI-PHASE CLEANSER is a gentle face cleanser with exfoliating properties. It contains Grape Seed Oil, an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that eliminates free radicals and promotes collagen restoration, and Rice Bran Oil, which helps to ward off visible signs of aging and helps lift makeup with ease. It also contains Vitamins C and E, two potent antioxidants for collagen formation and reinforcement of the skin barrier function, respectively.
Antioxidant Cocktail serum contains a blend of antioxidants, including a potent dose of Vitamin C, that work to repair and protect skin from free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as UV light. Dp Dermaceuticals Antioxidant Cocktail contains Niacinamide, an anti-inflammatory, in the form of Vitamin B3, which has been proven effective in the treatment of acne, redness, and irritation.
Microneedling providers use Dp Dermaceuticals Antioxidant Cocktail directly after the treatment and it’s the perfect second step of your at-home routine.
Uneven skin tone is a quite common concern, and one of the many skin challenges microneedling can help with.
BRITE LITE is specifically formulated to brighten skin and lighten dark spots with potent brightening ingredients Kojic Acid and Licorice Root, which regulate melanin production without bleaching the skin. This makes it safe for all skin tones.
It also contains Squalane, a bio-identical antioxidant and emollient that reinforces barrier function and protection. This is a key ingredient to use after microneedling and similar treatments as it imitates the skin’s natural barrier function, offering protection that is native to it.
VITAMIN RICH REPAIR™
In addition to using products to address challenges like acne and hyperpigmentation, it’s important to nourish skin daily, and especially after microneedling as your skin is most ready to absorb the nutrients. Microneedling providers use Vitamin Rich Repair as the last step in the treatment protocol before applying SPF 30 Cover Recover healing cream.
Vitamin Rich Repair helps to rejuvenate the skin, increases cell turnover and provides anti-aging benefits for younger-looking skin. This serum contains vitamin A derivatives, Retinyl Acetate and Retinyl Palmitate, which boost collagen and elastin production for a clearer complexion and reduction in signs of aging. Vitamin Rich Repair encapsulates other performance ingredients like Neodermyl, which revitalizes aged cells, as well as Resveratrol and Vitamin E, two potent antioxidants that work together to fight free radicals in the skin cells.
COVER RECOVER SPF 30
Microneedling can leave your skin temporarily red and especially sensitive to the sun, making SPF especially important. However, many face sunscreens can be comedogenic or block pores.
COVER RECOVER provides weightless, buildable, and breathable coverage while its combination of healing ingredients speeds up the recovery process post-treatment. Additionally, it provides non-toxic, mineral SPF30 protection. This healing camouflage is currently available in 9 shades, plus sheer and clear!
Microneedling results ultimately depend on the skincare that is being used to support the treatment. Dp Dermaceuticals offers a full line of products with high-tech, clean ingredients like the HylaFuse complex, to elevate your microneedling results.
