PRE AND POST
Fractional rf skin needling
Gentle Cleansing: Cleanse your face gently using a mild cleanser. Avoid harsh or abrasive scrubs that may cause excessive dryness or irritation.
Sun Protection: Prioritise sun protection in the weeks leading up to your fractional RF skin needling treatment. Limit sun exposure, wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and use protective clothing or accessories when outdoors. Sun-damaged skin may be more prone to adverse reactions during the procedure, and excessive sun exposure can hinder the healing process.
Discontinue Topical Treatments: Discontinue the use of any topical retinoids, hydroquinone, or exfoliating agents at least one week before the scheduled treatment. These products can increase skin sensitivity and may cause irritation during the procedure. Your skincare professional will provide specific instructions regarding which products to avoid and for how long.
Avoid Strenuous Activities: Refrain from engaging in strenuous activities or exercises for the first few days following the treatment. Gradually resume normal activities as advised by your provider.
Skin Care: Follow any skincare recommendations provided by your provider. This may include avoiding exposure to direct sunlight, using sunscreen, and keeping the treated area clean and moisturised.
Swelling and Bruising: It is normal to experience swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Apply ice packs or cold compresses to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort as recommended by your provider.
