Microneedling is quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for rejuvenating a tired, dull complexion.
And it’s no wonder – microneedling can help speed up cellular turnover, encourage collagen production, and even fade the appearance of stubborn wrinkles and sun damage.
But given that microneedling treatments use tiny needles to achieve these results, it leaves a lot of people asking: “Is there any downtime with microneedling treatments?”
*Individuals Results May Vary.
Microneedling doesn’t require active downtime, meaning you won’t have to take time off from work to recover from the treatment.
However, the aftereffects of microneedling can make it so that it’s tough to go right back to work or your normal routine immediately after your treatment. That’s because microneedling can cause redness, slight swelling, and skin sensitivity, especially in the first 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
For that reason, we recommend clients get microneedling treatments on the weekend, or during a time where they won’t have to go back to the office immediately after the procedure.
