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
