Before your Microneedling treatment at AP Clinique please do not use powerful blood thinners or anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic medicines. Before the treatment, do not use aggressive peeling products or cortisone preparations. During our free of charge consultation, we will be pleased to discuss your skin privately.
Ideally, at least 1-2 weeks before the microneedling treatment, it is recommended to prepare your skin with active ingredients such as synthetic color scents and preservatives, silicones, paraffin, paraben and emulsifiers that stimulates collagen synthesis and re-epithelialization (e.g. Vitamin C and A).
What are the Post-Treatment Instruction for Microneedling treatment and is there any recovery period?
AP Clinique’s microneedling treatment generally poses low risk, it is tolerated very well and it is performed by wise experts specially trained on this technology. During and after the treatment there is redness and slight swelling. This is normal because these indications are the sign of the initiation of skin renewal mechanisms. According to the sensitivity of the skin, both situations will completely disappear after a few hours or days later (1-2 day recovery period). As in any microneedling treatment, tiny inflammations may occur in treatment area. Sensitivity and spot incrustation may be counted among temporary side effects. More information can be achieved at our free of charge consultancy sessions. Reducing side effects can be possible with professional and coordinated care of scars rather than home care. When compared with laser treatments, microneedling significantly poses less risk and heals without scarring. Almost zero pigment migration is one of the advantages of this method.
After Microneedling treatment, a sunscreen with a high protection factor of SPF 30-50 should be daily used. Moreover, following acts should be avoided:
- Powerful Sunlight and Sunbathing
- Solarium, Sauna or Swimming Pool Visit
- Usage of Volatile Oils and Aggressive Peeling Products
- Overdose Inflammatory Medicines and Cytotoxic Medicines
- Usage of Skin Care Creams Including Paraffin, Silicone, Paraben, Peg, Synthetic Protector and Perfume
Generally it is difficult for many skin care components to penetrate into skin barrier (stratum corneum) unless they are equipped with hi-tech carriers such as liposomes or nanoparticles. Therefore, the effect will not develop at full power or cannot start as required. After Microneedling treatment, skin components can absorb care products as well as powerful regeneration promoting care products can be used. Added substances such as aggressive protectors, odors etc. may burden skin, extend recovery period or cause inflammation after microneedling treatment. Thus, we recommend you to pay attention to high quality care without paraffin, silicones, parabens, synthetic emulsifiers, aggressive synthetic surfactants, odors, colors and protectors. For supporting treatment results care products shall include agents that promote regeneration and boost skin barrier such as D-panthenol, CM-glucan, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. In case you are doubtful about if your skin care meets these suggestions, our treatment experts will be pleased to inform you at our clinic.
The results can be seen approximately within 4-8 weeks after the treatment, because skin renewal, structure of connective tissue and skin’s own collagen production take several weeks. Final outcome of an application generally can be seen after approximately 10-12 weeks.
How often microneedling should be performed at AP Clinique and how long do effects of treatment last?
For skin regeneration and freshness and also as a precaution for aging, 1-2 sessions are generally sufficient. Even in some situations including acne scars, if scars are not too deep, 1-2 treatment may be sufficient. To be able to achieve best results for wrinkles, skin refining and scars, it is recommended to have a treatment with several sessions. Number of sessions is identified specially for you based on your skin’s condition and targets. Based on the skin type and skin condition we generally recommend 3-6 sessions at intervals of 4-8 weeks.
However, the success of the treatment depends on a range of factors such as, condition of scar tissue, genetic factors, external effects such as sun exposure, actions before and after treatment (accurate and detailed skin care, sun protection etc.) and medicine usage. In a free of charge and nonbinding consultation, we inform you about required actions and how to support the success of your microneedling treatment. The outcome of treatment for ingrown hair scars, acne scars and hypertrophic scars is generally permanent. In addition, treatment for wrinkles and skin refinement may last for a few years. Moreover, we recommend refreshing sessions while skin continues aging for stabilizing the result and further slowdown skin aging process.
Wrinkle treatment and skin purifying treatment with microneedling last approximately 60-80 minutes. According to the largeness of skin area, treatment experts need approximately 20-40 minutes or more (for larger areas) for just microneedling.
