Microneedling downtime and side effects

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will most likely be red and flushed (similar in appearance to a mild sunburn). You may also experience skin tightness and slight sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will reduce over the following few hours after your treatment and will have completely subsided by the next day.

You may experience slight redness for a few days post-treatment. 3 to 5 days after your treatment, your skin is likely to feel a little dry and be flaky in some areas and you will notice a difference in the skin. This is due to the fast cellular turn over post-treatment.
