How to Take Care of Your Skin After Microneedling

You’ve reached the point with your skin where expensive skincare products are not helping with acne, acne scars, discoloration, or texture issues. As a result, you’ve decided to have a Microneedling resurfacing treatment. Well known for its incredible healing ability from the inside out, Morpheus8 Microneedling is also extremely safe and effective.

However, the way you care for your skin following your procedure is just as important as the treatment itself.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. W. Marshall Guy offers Microneedling in The Woodlands, Texas. With a comprehensive approach to human facial anatomy, Dr. Guy knows and understands how the skin functions and heals. With these few tips and tricks, you can keep your treated skin healthy and glowing for months to come.

What Is Microneedling?

At Dr. Guy Facial Plastic Surgery, he offers Morpheus8 Microneedling, aiming to improve your skin’s contours with less downtime than traditional skin resurfacing methods. Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the dermis (top layer of skin), accelerating your body’s natural collagen production. The new collagen that your body emits will heal these micro-tears and give a fresh, radiant glow to your skin. Morpheus8 takes microneedling a step farther by adding radio frequency which will boost your results from each treatment, decrease downtime, and is more tolerable than traditional microneedling.

Tips For Microneedling Aftercare

Careful aftercare for microneedling treatments can help the procedure’s effectiveness and protect your vulnerable skin from irritants and damage. Here are some valuable tips on how to take care of your skin after a microneedling treatment to extend the amazing results of this procedure.

Protect your skin from the sun

The sun’s rays may feel good on the skin, but the UV radiation in sunlight can significantly harm your skin’s collagen and elastin production. Protect your skin with an SPF of 30 or higher, and wear protective clothing when outside.

Cleanse Carefully

Even your favorite facial cleanser may cause increased redness, irritation, and dry skin after your microneedling appointment. To keep your skin fresh and clean, it’s vital that you wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap to clean off any potential dirt or grime. When washing your face, use lukewarm water and wash with a gentle cleanser and use a soft towel to pat your skin dry.


Moisturized skin is the foundation of proper skin maintenance. It nourishes your skin, keeps it young and plump, and promotes collagen production. After your microneedling treatment, your skin may feel a bit dryer and redder than usual. Applying a gentle moisturizer after you’ve cleansed can help reduce redness and lock in hydration for a faster and more comfortable healing process.
