Break out post microneedling.
I am sorry to hear that! This is rare to occur post-procedure, however I have seen this. Breaking out after your treatment is temporary and will usually resolve within 2 weeks. To prevent this from occurring again with microneedling I would recommend making sure that your face is completely cleaned and swabbed with alcohol or another antiseptic, make sure clean technique is being used during the microneedling. After your session a prescription topical antibiotic may be applied and used over the course of the first week, this should help prevent a break out. Best, Dr P
Acne following Microneedling
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. It would be highly unusual to experience acne following microneedling. The problem is most likely due to the cream which was applied following the treatment. You should inform your doctor of the problem. Good luck,
