Radiofrequency Microneedling Aftercare Instructions

Immediately after your Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment you may notice a few of the following things:

  • Redness
  • Red needle puncture marks
  • Itchiness

These issues above are common and should resolve over the next few days. Your final result will be seen in about 1 week after treatment.

You should not touch your face for the remainder of the day and night after your treatment. You may cleanse your skin with cool water and a gentle cleanser, followed by a moisturizer and sunscreen the next morning.

Things to avoid:

  • Going in the sun without
    sunscreen.
  • Going in the sauna or steam room
    for one week.
  • Strenuous Exercise for 24
  • Using AHA, Rentinols, Vitamin C,
    or oil based make up for one week after your treatment.
  •  Facials, facial waxing, Glycolic or AHA peels,
    IPL or energy based treatments, micro needling, microdermabrasion for two
    weeks.
  • Exfoliating your skin for one
    week.  

Cold Sores
There may be a small chance that a treatment may induce an outbreak of facial cold sores in patients with a previous history. If you get cold sores after a treatment, please contact us for a follow up appointment.

Retreatment

Your next session should occur between 2-4 weeks after the first treatment.

Meet Dr. Nadir Qazi

While growing up in Chicago, I struggled for years with severe acne and scarring. Dealing with constant comments about my skin, especially from friends and family, wasn’t easy. That feeling of isolation and defeat hit me hard. Many around me were in the same position, yet there were very limited solutions available. This led me to determine my mission: to tirelessly build a unique medical practice where compassion meets science, providing proper care for every overlooked skin type and tone. At my Center, my team and I offer only clinically proven treatments that I have personally researched. My goal is to help others achieve their dreams, breaking free from the constraints of their physical appearance, and to be the support I needed the most.
