So you have done your research and are ready to move forward with microneedling. You set time in your schedule and make an appointment. You have everything set even the downtime away from friends to avoid the “What did you have done?” questions. If you find out you cannot move forward for some reason, it can be a real disappointment. Imagine arriving and checking in, getting settled in a comfy chair and being told by your dermatology clinic that you have to reschedule.
This failure and disappointment can be completely avoided. Some more obvious things to avoid prior to microneedling are retinol treatments or product use the day before your scheduled service. What may not be so obvious is regularly taking ibuprofen or naproxen.
Here is a list of things that will prevent you from receiving microneedling services with Rejuvapen:
Things to Avoid Before Microneedling
- Received spa or cosmetic treatments to areas of face or neck that would increase skin sensitivity or compromise skin integrity.
- Used tanning booths or received extended amount of sunlight exposure.
- Recent use of products or medications containing retinoid or Vitamin A derivatives.
- Used autoimmune medications or therapies
- Chronic use of NSAIDS, such as ibuprofen.
- Received Botox treatment within the past 2 weeks
- Received filler treatment within the past 2-4 weeks
Come with a clean face and no makeup.
