After care for dermarolling/microneedling.

I have a 1.0mm dermaroller. I used it for the first time today. Afterwards I applied Vit c w/hyaluronic acid, and also copper peptide w/EGF. Should I only be using one serum or the other? If so, which should I use? Thank You so much!

After care for micro-needling

Micro-needling creates micro-channels in the skin which enhance penetration of topical serums and medications which can dramatically increasing their effectiveness. Up to 80% of product can penetrate the skin compared to 7 to 10% with normal topical application. Therefore, it is very important that anything put on the skin after micro-needling has been tested to be safe to use after this procedure.

In my office, we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated human growth factor serums made from human stem cells.

This serum is made specifically for this treatment. Our patients also use a growth factor serum at home after the office treatment.

Thanks for your query. The most important after care post Derma rolling is sun protection and moisturization. Vitamin c and hyaluronic acid helps in improving skin texture even more.
