Micro- Needling with SkinStylus® is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging. To augment the benefits of micro-needling, some have adopted the practice of applying cosmeceuticals prior to micro-needling to enhance its effects. When the micro-channels are open, topicals are much more likely to penetrate the dermis.

However, if the wrong topical products are used before, during or after micro-needling, you may do more harm than good so this practice should be approached with caution. Off-the-shelf products may contain ingredients that cause inflammation or foreign body responses or hinder the body’s healing process.

All topical products used during and/or after micro-needling should:

  1. Be formulated for use on broken skin (if used during micro-needling)

  2. Contain ingredients that won’t instigate inflammatory or foreign body responses

While the micro-channels are open in the 24 hours following your micro-needling procedure, it’s particularly important not to use topical skin care products that contain ingredients that will irritate your skin or hinder the skin rejuvenation process. You don’t want potentially irritating ingredients to reach the dermis and prolong inflammation of your skin following the SkinStylus® procedure.
