2Who should not have microneedling?
Ask your health-care practitioner how the microneedling unit is cleaned between patients. According to the device instructions, microneedling units that have reusable parts should be cleaned and disinfected.
Ask your health care provider if a new needle cartridge is used for each patient and for each treatment session with the same patient. Re-using cartridges can cause or spread infection.
Ask your health care specialist how to protect your skin after the procedure, as your skin is more sensitive to the sun and to skin care products such as sunscreen, makeup, and moisturizers, especially those that contain retinol, glycolic acid, menthol, capsaicin, or alcohol.

11What age is best for microneedling?
12What happens if you microneedle too often?
If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.
Needless are not rolled into skin and are rolled onto skin instead, so the micro-hole it creates tend to be wider shaped cones, which is why giving two weeks between each session is preferable.
13What should I avoid before microneedling?
– Topical Retinoids.
– Topical Acids.
– Topical Exfoliants.
– Anti-inflammatory Medications.
– Blood-Thinning Agents.
– Laser Treatments.
14Is microneedling safe for all skin types?
15What should you not do after microneedling?

– Do not use ice on your face, and avoid using arnica/bromelain.
– Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks.
– Use a painkiller, such as Tylenol, if you experience any soreness.
