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.


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