Microneedling Side Effects

Microneedling is a popular skin care treatment that has many benefits, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and scars. However, like any other treatment, microneedling also has some side effects. In this blog post, we will discuss what to expect after a microneedling treatment. We will also provide tips on how to reduce the likelihood of experiencing these side effects.

1) Skin Irritation

The most common side effect of microneedling is skin irritation. This can range from mild redness and swelling to more severe symptoms like blisters or open wounds. In most cases, the skin will return to normal within a few days. However, if the irritation is severe or does not go away after a few days, you should contact your dermatologist.

2) Bruising

Another common side effect of microneedling is bruising. This usually occurs around the treatment area and typically resolves within a week or two. If the bruises are excessive or do not resolve within this time frame, you should contact your dermatologist.

3) Pin Point Bleeding

Finally, some people experience minor bleeding after microneedling. This is typically very minimal and resolves on its own within a few hours. However, if you are experiencing significant bleeding or it does not stop after a few hours, you should contact your dermatologist.

Tips To Reduce Microneedling Side Effects

Overall, the side effects of microneedling are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days. However, if you experience any severe symptoms, be sure to contact your dermatologist for advice. Tips for avoiding these side effects include:

– Avoiding sun exposure before and after treatment

– Applying an ice pack to the treatment area after treatment

– Taking ibuprofen if you experience swelling or discomfort We hope this blog post has been helpful! If you have any additional questions about microneedling or its side effects, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
