Pregnancy & Premenstrual – We recommend not receiving microneedling treatments during pregnancy as it is best to allocate the body’s resources to the development of your baby. We also recommend not scheduling visits during your premenstrual cycle as the skin can be more sensitive.
Medications – Be sure to disclose any medications you are taking or have recently taken to your practitioner. The following medications require special caution: anti-coagulants, any medications that cause photo-sensitivity/light sensitivity, and any topical medications.
Cosmetic Treatments – Microneedling should not be scheduled too soon after any of the following treatments; microdermabrasion, Botox, filler injections, IPL, chemical peel, and cosmetic surgery.
Hemophiliacs – should not receive microneedling treatments. People with a history of allergies, such as asthma or hay fever are at risk of urticaria/itchy skin following treatment due to the release of histamines.
Diabetics – must be properly managing their diabetes and the skin must be closely monitored after treatment due to higher risk of infection.
Immunocompromised – people should not do microneedling at home – consult your microneedling practitioner for more information on whether or not this procedure is right for you.
