A Guide to Microneedling, Skin Care, and Post-Procedure Tips.

There’s a lot to like about microneedling. Ask anyone who’s tried it and experienced some of the incredible benefits like a smoother skin texture and brighter-looking complexion. Microneedling involves tiny needles puncturing the skin which help to stimulate natural collagen production and promote a rejuvenating effect. But how can you ensure the best care of your skin post-procedure to help enhance the effects for the best results?

It’s vital that you protect your skin in the days following your treatment as the skin heals. Whether you’re new to the world of microneedling or are someone that’s been reaping its benefits for years, the following tips can help ensure you take care of your skin properly, including using plant-based EGF skin care products like ours to help further enhance visible results.

1. Choose a Gentle Cleanser.

Your regular, everyday face cleanser may cause irritation, redness, and dryness if it’s not gentle enough. If you want your skin to look radiant and fresh, try a gentle cleanser, such as our high-quality Micellar Cleansing Water. Choose an alcohol-free, oil-free micellar water like this that gently removes impurities.

Tip: Seek a unique base ingredient in your micellar water, such as our soft Icelandic water that’s geologically filtered. Pure Icelandic water contains a lower concentration of calcium and magnesium, which are minerals that can dry out or irritate your skin.

2. Use Our Potent Plant-Based EGF Serum.

Speed up recovery and help improve the overall appearance of your skin post-procedure with our bestselling EGF Serum featuring a high concentration of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) from barley plants. This product increases skin’s moisture levels and helps support natural collagen production to keep your skin looking smooth, healthy and youthful. Plus, some reported improved hydration and more even skin texture after using epidermal growth factors alongside microneedling treatments.

Tip: While it’s never advisable to use a Vitamin C or Retinol serum immediately after microneedling, you can still add a beneficial serum as part of your skin care routine. A fragrance-free, oil-free, and alcohol-free serum with minimal ingredients that includes barley EGF like ours is really ideal.

3. Be Sure to Moisturize.

A clean moisturizer with minimal ingredients can help hydrate, plump, and nourish your skin. You may notice your facial skin feeling drier than normal after microneedling, so we recommend adding our Hydrating Cream to your routine. It includes ingredients that support your skin’s natural collagen production like barley EGF, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidant-rich vitamin E all which make this lightweight, hydrating, and oil-free face cream perfect for aftercare.

4. Avoid Irritants and Potentially Damaging Products.

Following your microneedling session, your skin works hard to heal itself creating newer, firmer-looking skin. Because your skin is in recovery mode at this time, it’s more vulnerable to the sun’s UV rays, bacteria, and any type of exfoliators (such as creams and facial scrubs). Avoid Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA’s), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA’s), Retinol, and any scrubs with Vitamin C for several days after any microneedling.

By combining microneedling and skin care products like ours that feature beneficial EGF, you can help your skin heal all while boosting hydration and moisture retention—to leave your skin looking firmer, plumper, smoother and more healthier.
