Immediately after your derma roller treatment, you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This normally subsides after 2 to 3 hours and usually recovers within 24 hours, with only slight redness the following day.
To help your skin in its recovery process, follow the recommendations below:
Use lukewarm water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and pat dry gently. Make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
If possible, avoid makeup for at least 12-24 hours. Most makeup contains synthetic ingredients which you don’t want to be absorbed into the skin.
Steer clear of hot baths or showers, saunas, steam rooms, and excessive exercise until the redness has subsided.
Limit or avoid intensive sun exposure and artificial UV exposure for a period of at least 3-7 days, depending on how sensitive your skin is.
Use a natural, organic hyaluronic serum to deeply hydrate your skin as it will help boost skin recovery. You will benefit from the daily use of hyaluronic youth serum as it assists in the pliability, elasticity, plumpness, and firmness of the skin.

DO NOT USE Retinol A (which is derived from animal sources) as it is a risky option a far as dermarolling / microneedling goes. Retinol can be too strong a skincare addition after your derma roller treatment. Because the needles create micro-channels in the skin, it is important not to apply products that could irritate the skin or act as a toxin when entering the bloodstream in high quantities. For that reason, synthetic vitamin A or Retinol should be avoided at least 3 days prior to and after your derma roller treatment.
Also, consider investing in more natural and organic skincare. Your skin and body will thank you in the long run!
