Million Dollar Facial - Microneedling

 Your skin will be red after microneedling.  If you look in the mirror after your treatment and find that your face is totally red, don’t panic. It’s normal for your skin to be red following a microneedling treatment. Using our recommended products will keep your skin hydrated will help minimize the redness.

 

Bruising and swelling.  The roller your clinician will use around your eyes may cause some slight bruising. It’s nothing to be worried about, and the bruising is usually faint enough to be covered up with makeup. Some people may also experience some mild swelling after microneedling.

 

Rough skin and visible marks. You may get a few lumps and bumps but this is totally normal as your skin has been through an elective trauma.

After your procedure, your skin will feel and look different. It might feel rough to the touch for a few days, and you may notice some slight visible marks on your skin. Both of these effects are caused by the micro injuries created by the punctures. As your skin heals, these marks will soon fade and your skin will become smoother than it was before.

 

Minimal microneedling downtime. The inflammatory effect of microneedling is short. Within just 12-24 hours, your skin should fade from red to pink and the swelling should go down, though you may experience some sensitivity for up to 48 hours. Wash skin with a gentle cleanser and cool water, and pat dry with your hands. If you received a more aggressive treatment, the redness may linger a bit longer.

 

Stay away from ibuprofen.  Microneedling relies on your body’s natural inflammatory process to stimulate cell regeneration, so it is highly recommended that you stay away from anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. These medications will interfere with your body’s recovery process and affect your results. Use a cool compress to soothe any discomfort or swelling.

 

Peeling will start 3-5 days after treatment.  Peeling is a normal and important part of the microneedling healing process, caused by the increased cell turnover. You can expect peeling to start within 3-5 days after your appointment. It is very important that you moisturise at least twice a day and don’t pick at or scratch your skin. Keep it well moisturised to minimize itching that might encourage scratching.

 

While the downtime after microneedling before your skin returns to normal is just a day or two at most, you should wait a few weeks to repeat the treatment. You can safely repeat the procedure every 4-6 weeks until you achieve your desired results. Your technician will counsel you on what’s best for your skin.

Million Dollar Facial - Dermaplaning

Avoid facial waxing for 7 days.  No scrubs, peels, or aggressive brushes for 7 days. Do apply serums as absorption levels will be elevated.

Be sparing with self-tan, remember absorption levels are elevated.  You may experience a slight windburn sensation post treatment and skincare products may tingle slightly, this is normal for the first few days.  Use a gentle cleanser and apply moisturizer at least twice daily for a minimum of 7 days post treatment.  Avoid excessive heat treatments eg sauna steam rooms for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. Please keep out of the sun /sunbeds for 2 weeks post treatment. If you must be in the sun, apply spf 50 or greater, reapply often, wear a hat, and seek shade when possible. Fitzpatrick 4 to 6 is prone to pigmentation and exposure to rays can be elevated in all skin types .it is essential to wear spf50 following this treatment as part of your home care.

Brow & Eyelash Tinting

  • We advise that you don’t wear mascara for 12 hours after an eyelash tint

Microblading

  • Immediately post treatment, you will typically experience redness, tenderness and swelling of the skin, which will subside over 1-4 days. The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards In some cases, bruising may occur. The colour and intensity will be darker and sharper immediately after the procedure. This will reduce by 30-50% over two weeks post treatment.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before touching the treated area.

  • Apply our after-care cream for healing for the best results. Use a q-tip to apply to eyebrows once a day for 7 days after the initial 24 hours.

  • Skin will start to flake and itch after about 5 days. Do not pick at the brow when the colour starts to peel. Colour will start to lighten and appear blurry. After about 2 weeks, the colour and definition will start to return and even out.

  • Avoid sweat-inducing exercise and direct contact with water for 7 days.

  • The use of cosmetics in the treatment area should be discontinued until the skin has fully healed.

  • Avoid sun and UV exposure in the treatment area for 7 days post treatment, or until the skin has fully healed.

  • Between the initial treatment and the top up, you may experience peeling (typically noticeable only up close) and fading of the brow. This is natural and part of the treatment process. Be patient, even if you think too much colour has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating.

  • The top up should be scheduled within four to six weeks of the initial treatment. It is extremely important to ensure desired results are achieved.
