PRE & POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS

MICRONEEDLING

Before Micro-Needling Treatment:

 

Prior to the Eclipse Micropen Micro-Needling treatment, please observe the

following:

  • No Retin-A products or applications 12 hours prior to your treatment.

  • No auto-immune therapies or products 12 hours prior to your treatment.

  • No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treatment. A

  • MICROPEN treatment will not be administered on sunburned skin.

  • On the day of the treatment, please keep your face clean and do not apply makeup.

  • If an active or extreme breakout occurs before treatment, please consult your practitioner.

 

What Can Be Expected:

 

After your Eclipse Micropen Micro Needling treament , please be aware and

observe the following:

  • Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24 hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots.

  • Your practitioner will discuss post-procedure skincare following the treatment to help soothe, calm, and protect the skin. Continue to treat the skin gently for 3 days. Normal skincare can be resumed again after Day 3.

 

After Microneedling Treatment:

 

Be certain to adhere to the following post-treatment instructions:

  • CLEAN – Use a gentle cleanse and tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 72 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.

 

  • HEAL – Serum antioxidants are recommended post-treatment as the properties are ideal to help heal the skin. These products can help soothe the skin and lessen irritation.

 

  • HYDRATE – Following your Micro-Needling treatment, your skin may feel drier than normal. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin back to perfect balance.

 

  • STIMULATE – In the days following your Micro needling treatment, and as the skin starts to regenerate, collagen-stimulating peptides are ideal to continue the stimulation.

 

  • MAKEUP – It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 24 hours after the procedure. Do not apply any makeup with a makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.

 

  • PROTECT – Immediately after the procedure, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF 25 or greater. A chemical-free sunscreen is highly recommended.

 

What to Avoid:

 

To ensure the proper healing environment, be certain to observe the following:

  • For at least 3 days post treatment, do NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula) or anything perceived as ‘active’ skincare.

  • Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for 24 hours. No tanning beds.

  • Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.

  • No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment.                         Sweating and gym environments are harmful, rife with bacteria, and may

      cause adverse reactions.
