Micro-needling while using acne medications
After micro-needling, the
micro-channels that have been created begin to close within 5 minutes so if you wait before applying your acne medications it should be fine. However, to get good results for treatment of facial scars you should get a fairly aggressive micro-needling treatment with 1.5 mm needles which most likely will cause some skin sensitivity for a few days. Because of this, I recommend stopping your acne creams for a few days after the treatment. Also, to
get the best results from micro-needling, we use a concentrated human
growth factor serum derived from human stem cells to further improve skin healing. We also have our patients apply a growth factor serum at home on a daily basis to give continued improvement as well.
