Microneedling is safe to perform on every skin type and color. The chance of a change in skin color after the procedure is minimal, although you may experience some redness and inflammation immediately after the procedure. This procedure can be used on all different skin locations. This includes more sensitive areas such as your eyelids, neck, back of hands, arms, stomach and legs.
Microneedling is also not suitable for anyone with open cuts, wounds or abbrasions. If you have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last 3 months, you are not a good candidate for microneedling. This is because Accutane impacts the skin’s natural healing process, creating a risk of scaring. If you have had skin radiation within the past year, have a herpes outbreak or other skin infections, microneedling is not for you. If you have a history of scarring, impaired healing or keloids, we recommend against receiving this procedure. AZ Brow Doctor does not offer microneedling to pregnant or breastfeeding mothers at this time.
