Thank you for sharing your question. Microneedling in combination with retinoid creams is excellent for improving the skin texture, elasticity and overall appearance. Wait a week after Microneedling before restarting the cream to avoid irritation and use a lot of sunblock.
Tretinoins are a very important part of my skin care recommendations for all patients. It is important to find the retinol or tretinoin that works with your skin and use them regularly. I ask patients though to switch to growth factor serums or lotions for the microneedled skin for the first few days and only return to the RetinA or retinol product once the skin has thoroughly healed. Freshly injured skin and healing skin just get irritated when they are used too quickly after a procedure.
Thanks for your question! I absolutely agree with your tech's recommendations about using a prescription retinoid cream post-microneedling. It will enhance your results and keep your skin looking young and refreshed. Best of luck to you!
Retinoic creams after microneedling will enhance the outcome and I agree with the recommendation. Use it regularly for great outcomes and use high SPF when exposed to the sun.
I recommend RR Retinoid Repair cream from Kare Skin.
We combine skin care, lasers, facials with microneedling. I suggest appropriate skin care after microneedling. Best, Dr. Emer.
The use of Tretinoin cream will maximize the results of your micro needling so it was an excellent idea. Best, Dr. Green
