Aftercare Instructions

24-48 Hours After Treatment

  • Keep treated area as dry as possible so crust/scab can dry and flake off faster – this is important to get the best results.
  • Clean area with alcohol and Q-tip only for first 24-48 hours (after 2 days you can clean area with a moisturizing or antibacterial soap).
  • No exercising or excessive sweating for 2 days.
  • No Sauna/Steam room/Steam from cooking/No Sunbeds.
  • No Make-up on crust/scab area for 3 days (around area is okay-clean makeup brushes).
  • No heavy sun exposure (tanning) – Regular sun exposure is fine but use SPF15/30 and wear a hat or scarf if longer than 30 mins.
  • No Botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers.

1 Week

  • When a majority of crust/scab fall off apply Rose Hip oil or Vitamin E, or face serum/moisturizer to treated area.
  • No Swimming or Chlorine.
  • Do Not Use Anti-Aging creams (Retin A).
  • Do Not Use AHA’s, Glycolic or Retinol.
  • Do Not Use harsh exfoliating products.

Additional Suggestions:

  • Warm skin/burning sensation will reduce and anti-inflammatory or anti-histamine medication can help. Warming is due to increased blood flow to treated area to heal skin.
  • Swelling is normal especially around eyes and will only last a few days usually more swelling in the AM.
  • Ice Packs or hydrating face masks can soothe and help reduce swelling after 24 hours, use a paper towel or washcloth to cover ice pack (do not apply ice directly to skin to avoid excess moisture).
  • DO NOT PICK SCABS – Scabs will turn dark brown or even black – Do not pick. Let them flake off naturally – use Rose Hip Oil after, scabs fall off naturally.
  • If area becomes hot, red or pus – Contact your primary physician immediately.
  • Text or Call Fibroblast technician if you have any further questions. 
  • Gently rinse with cool water, morning and night for 10 days.
  • Apply ointment 5 times daily for 10 days.
  • No picking or scratching at scabs.
  • No spicy food for first 3 days.
  • No product or makeup on lips until completely healed.

Sun Protection

As a general rule, you should use sunscreen constantly for the first 2 weeks after microneedling. Make sure to apply sunscreen whenever you go outside in the days following your treatment. 
Don’t spend prolonged time out in the sun for the first week after your microneedling procedure, as you’ll be more prone to sun damage than usual. 

Avoid Infection

Use any topical antibiotic cream that your doctor prescribes to avoid infection.
Wash your hands before you touch your face.
Don’t put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 24 hours following microneedling.
To protect your skin, you’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym. 
After 72 hours have passed, you may be able to resume these activities. 

Skin care products to use or avoid

For the first few days after your microneedling procedure, there are a few things to be aware of.
Avoid exfoliants, retinols and Vitamin C.
Avoid any skin care product that contains harsh chemicals meant to exfoliate. Avoid anything that’s scented, and don’t use glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids(AHAs).
Retinol and Vitamin C serum should be avoided for at least the first 48 hours after microneedling. 
After 2 days, you might want to gradually add products back into your daily beauty routine instead of doing your usual regimen, especially if you use products that have strong anti-aging formulas.

Cleanser and Moisturizer options

Run any cleansers, toners, or scrubs that you plan to use in the 2-3 days after microneedling by your dermatologist to make sure the ingredients won’t worsen side effects.
Hyaluronic acid can be used by trusted sources following microneedling, and it’s even recommended in some cases to help stimulate collagen production after your procedure.
If you skin feels dry, it’s generally safe to apply coconut oil as an emollient to lock in moisture and hydrate your face after microneedling.
Diluted, alcohol-free witch hazel may also be used to cleanse dry skin. 
It’s best to stick to using gently, natural ingredients that you’re familiar with. 

How soon after microneedling can you use makeup?

Covering up the redness with makeup is one of the worst things you can do, as the makeup will block the pores on your newly exposed skin and might even cause breakouts.
You’ll need to have some patience as the redness subsides, but in the meantime, you can apply gently, unscented products with natural ingredients to get some relief. 
Ideally, you should wait at least 48 hours after microneedling before you wear makeup. This gives the skin time to heal.


Follow the White Diet for 24-48 hours after a teeth whitening treatment. Remember that after a teeth whitening treatment, the pores of your enamel are open and this makes them extra vulnerable to any stains. Once the pores close, which usually happens 24-48 hours after the procedure, you can resume your normal habits. 

NON-STAINING BEVERAGES: Water, sparkling water, milk
BEVERAGES TO AVOID: Lemonade, Orange juice, any Acidic fruit juices, Tea/Coffee, Colas and other fizzy drinks, Energy drinks.
ALCOHOLIC DRINKS TO AVOID: Red wine, Stout or Dark Beer
FOODS YOU CAN HAVE: Chicken, Turkey, White fish, White rice, White pasta, White sauce, Cauliflower, Cottage cheese, Potatoes(no skin), Bananas
FOODS TO AVOID: Try to avoid foods with color. The more colorful, the more likely it can stain your teeth – Carrots and Orange fruits and vegetables, Broccoli, Spinach and Green vegetables, Chocolate, Wheat bread, Tomatoes and red sauces such as Spaghetti sauce, Beets, Butter and Margarine.


Avoid extremely hot or cold liquids. These are dangerous to your white smile because they change the temperature of your teeth. This temperature change(hot and cold cycling) causes teeth to expand and contract, allowing stains to penetrate your teeth. Try cutting down on these types of drinks(including coffee and tea) or try drinking them with a straw to reduce the amount of time they are in contact with your teeth. 
Avoid foods and drinks that are acidic. Acidic foods and beverages open up the pores of the tooth enamel allowing stains to more easily penetrate the teeth. Use a straw to help minimize the contact of these substances with your teeth. 
Cut back on drinking and smoking. Frequent consumption of alcoholic drinks and heavy smoking can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. Many alcoholic drinks such as wine have tannins that can stain the teeth. The same goes for nicotine in tobacco. If you cannot quit drinking and smoking entirely, at least try to do it in moderation or lessen the frequency. 
Use smudge-proof lipstick. Use smudge-proof lipstick to keep lipstick from getting on your teeth because it also can stain teeth. 
Use maintenance products. Use Minerals enamel booster to seal in results and lock out stains. Use our 1-year smile maintenance kit once a month and/or Forever white to touch-up your smile as needed.
