Immediately post procedure, your skin will be inflamed and swollen. This is the reaction we want! This tells you your skin is ready to start the healing process. As part of RF Microneedling in New Braunfels, we apply soothing, post-procedure products that aid in healing and provide the skin with protective moisturizers. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can also be used to enhance the outcome. It is highly recommended to sleep sitting slightly elevated to help reduce swelling.
You will want to avoid wearing any makeup for 48 hours to allow the skin to breathe and heal. Avoid the sun. As part of your treatment and recovery, we will send you home with your PRP or medical-grade skincare products to cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin. Your skin will likely be inflamed, like a mild sunburn, for two or three days. This is an expected response.
