What's Included

Microneedling is a great way to improve the appearance of your skin, but it’s important to take precautions if you have certain conditions.

Before starting a microneedling treatment, it is important to know if you have any contraindications. Microneedling can cause skin irritation and worsen certain skin conditions.

Microneedling Contraindications

Here are the most common contraindications:

•Psoriasis- If you have psoriasis, microneedling can worsen the condition.

•Eczema- Eczema may also worsen after microneedling.

•Acne- Acne may break out or become worse after treatment.

•Rosacea- The inflammation caused by rosacea may be intensified after microneedling.

If you have any of these conditions, it is best to avoid microneedling until your skin has improved. Speak to your skincare provider to see if microneedling is right for you.

Microneedling can also cause skin irritation and sun sensitivity. Be sure to use sunscreen every day, even if you don’t plan on being in the sun for long. If you experience any skin irritation or excessive redness after treatment, stop using any products that contain glycolic acid or retinoids until the irritation subsides.
