Micro-needling is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments in Tulsa. Although there is no set downtime for recovery, to achieve optimal results and get the most out of your treatment, you will want to follow certain aftercare instructions. Dr. David B. Minor, a board-certified dermatologist at Skin Renewal of Tulsa, and his team of professionals would be happy to provide you with more information when it comes to things you can and cannot do after the treatment to enhance the results.
Avoid Anti-Inflammatory Medications
It is advisable that you avoid anti-inflammatory medications for a set amount of time before and after your micro-needling treatment in Tulsa. These medications may bring some complications or interfere with your body’s natural healing process.
Clean the Treatment Area Regularly
You may want to use tap water, a gentle cleanser, and a sponge to clean the treatment area to avoid any unnecessary issues. Gently dry the area with a soft cloth after washing it. If you have sensitive skin, avoid harsh cleansing brushes and soaps as they may cause itching or irritation.
Make Sure Your Body is Hydrated
Your face may appear drier than usual after undergoing micro-needling in Tulsa. This is why it is typically recommended that you drink enough water to keep your body hydrated. You may also want to use chemical-free creams and lotions to keep your skin moisturized.
Have Sun Protection
It’s very important to avoid exposing the treated area to the sun and continue protecting it against ultraviolet rays for at least a week after the treatment. Applying chemical-free sunscreen or wearing protective clothing can offer the protection you need.
Stay Away From Cigarettes
Since micro-needling in Tulsa involves the creation of many tiny micro-channels in the skin, the treated area of your skin needs to get enough blood supply and nutrients to heal. Smoking, therefore, affects the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the area. This slows down the skin rejuvenation process and prevents you from achieving optimal treatment results.
