Because SkinPen microneedling in Oakdale does superficially damage the skin, it’s important to take a few steps to ensure your skin is healthy and ready for the treatment.
We’ll provide you with detailed preparation instructions, but generally, you should:
- Arrive to your appointment with a clean face, free of makeup
- Avoid Retin-A products or active skincare products like vitamin C for 3 days prior
- Avoid prolonged sun exposure for 2 weeks prior
- Wait at least 2 weeks after getting any neurotoxin to receive a microneedling treatment
