Microneedling is a popular skin care treatment that can improve the appearance of your skin. People often wonder when is the best time to exfoliate after microneedling treatments? In this post, we will answer that question and give you some tips on how to properly exfoliate your skin after a microneedling treatment.
How Long Until You Can Exfoliate?
The best time to exfoliate your skin after a microneedling treatment is usually 24-48 hours after the treatment. Some beauty salons recommend 3-4 days after microneedling. You want to wait until the skin has had time to heal and the micro-wounds have closed. Exfoliating too soon can irritate the skin and cause further damage.
How Do You Clean Your Face After Microneedling?
When you do exfoliate, use gentle circular motions with a soft washcloth for exfoliating brush. Avoid any harsh scrubbing as this can irritate the skin. Avoid using any products containing retinol or glycolic acid, as these can be excessively harsh on the skin. If your skin is feeling dry or tight after microneedling, you can also use a hydrating mask or moisturizer to help soothe the skin. Just be sure to wait until the skin has healed before applying any products.
Do And Don’ts After Microneedling?
In general, you want to avoid any activities that will irritate the skin after microneedling. This includes avoiding sun exposure, saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers. You should also avoid wearing makeup or using any skincare products for at least 24 hours after the treatment. If your skin is feeling dry or tight, you can use a hydrating mask or moisturizer to help soothe the skin. Just be sure to wait until the skin has healed before applying any products.
